      WILD... Because you are lucid from the very beginning of your REM cycle.

      I've had long WILDs and I've had Long DILDs. I've had a lot more short WILDs than DILDs though. Theres just something about lying in a bed for nearly an hour only to dream for about five minutes that makes me want to stop doing them all together sometimes.

      DEILD is the way to go.

      Specially if you have a lucid, you will know you are waking up, so start DEILDing from the lucid. I try it five times, and guess what? Worked five times.

      I would suggest not worrying about waking up. I try not to anyway

      Good luck. Oh and I'd recommend WBTB with any technique.

      many sources suggest:
      -rubbing your hands together, or anything else to absorb your sense into the dream
      -remaining calm
      -already having chosen a lucid task ahead of time
      -spinning (to enter a new scene and stay in dream)
      -and do a RC when you awaken, as it may often be a false awakening

      i am not a pro, but your first two lucid dreams were ten minutes?! i'd say that's pretty awesome. my longest has been maybe 3 minutes, and most beginner's seem to last only seconds.

      and you "tried to WTBT" but it "dint work?"

      you tried once? twice? WBTB is a supplement to any other techniques you find (such as MILD, WILD etc), not a technique in and of itself. even if you are a talented natural dreamer these are things you must make a practice of and try many, many times to gain consistency.

      How many times did you try the WBTB method? Would you give up painting because the brush wouldn't work? Lucid dreaming is a craft like any other and with a steep learning curve for most. It may take months of waking up in the middle of the night until you have your breakthrough, but the thing is, you WILL have a breakthrough. Just be consistent and determined.

      Yeah, I hear the WBTB has around a 60% success rate.

      For some it could be 0%, it's a matter of practice, you don't have to give up!

      Becoming more aware of your surroundings helps, I find touching objects around me helps make the dream more vivid and last longer

      I find everytime i remember to do this i have long LDs.

      Pick up and object feel the texture of it and focus on what it feels like. Usually this stabalizes you into the dream, it has worked better than other techniques i have tried.
