      No worries, it's fairly common with our younger dreamers, and most people off all ages honestly. I do highly encourage you to stick with it though...I wish I had when I was young!

      Welcome back!

      No luck the last few days, dream recall diminished and no LD, not even any dreams recall today despite auto-suggestion focussing on this day, WBTB, writing down the intention of remembering the dreams and becoming lucid and more RCs than ever during the last week.
      Since I've always struggled with recall, I'll read and apply the dream recall compendium and hope it helps with consistency.

      If you are feeling any stress over any lack of results it is better to keep up the work while saying to yourself something like "the results will come when they come." This helps to take off any pressure that may be hurting the results. Pressure and stress may help get some things done, but they are not conducive to lucid dreaming.

      Feel free to make some notes here on what you found interesting or had questions about in the recall compendium.

      Sounds reasonable. I wouldn't say I feel a lot of stress or pressure but I think "the results will come when they come." is really a good way to get rid of these feelings.

      I found it quite surprising that temperature and light have such a high impact on recall. I've never thought about adjusting them. Adjusting temperature is no that easy but I'll definitely test the impact of letting more light in in the next days.
      I also made a diary of my waking day and this seems to be quite beneficial as well. I woke up early in the night and remembered two short dreams. So I had a WBTB without setting an alarm and more dreams recalled than ever so early in the night
      Mantras are interesting, too, but I've never been able to keep doing them until I fall asleep, it's quite hard to fall asleep while doing them.

      Congratulations on the recall success

      For falling asleep while doing mantras, perhaps try something more simple like "Remember" (as in remember to remember...to recall or to RC or to remember that you are dreaming for example) with more time than normal between each time you say it (perhaps even increasing the time between, if needed, to help fall asleep). It's not that you are required to fall asleep while doing the mantra for success, just that it increases the percentage of successful attempts. If those ideas aren't for you, then just do the mantra for a while, stop doing the mantra and then drift off to sleep. That will still have benefits.

      Recall has been increasing in the last few days, from two to four last night. Awesome
      I've increased my sleeping hours to ~9 again. I've had three false awakenings in the morning hours, all of them having to do with writing down dreams which I was unable to find in my DJ later^^
      Until now, I've been too lazy to really try out your suggestion for doing mantras but thanks for the suggestion, I'm confident it will help.

      Great to hear your recall is improving nicely If you continue to notice FAs you might try a reality check before each time before you write in your dream journal. One RC I just thought of is to start each entry by carefully drawing a 3D square as perfectly as possible or some other drawing that might not work as easily in a dream as it would in waking life to help cue you in that you are dreaming. If the idea doesn't fit for you, just make sure you do a proper RC and if it is a more traditional RC, do it more than once or do more than one kind of RC.
