      Is this normal? <help!>

      I rarely ever get lucid dreams, even when trying, but when i do have them, I always recognize its a dream very quickly, and have been able to control my dreams with ease...but the problem is, every time I realize I'm dreaming, I begin to wake up quickly...so the fact that I can control my dreams really well and stuff hardly ever matters, as I always wake up before I get to have too much fun...any advice?

      I also lose control way too quickly.
      Recently I've been trying to become lucid, but the moment i think something weird is going on, my nasty mind is already awaken


      Carlos Castaneda suggests to focus on one object and then glance on other objects , then focus on initial one, then repeat.

      You can also swirl around...

      I'm a HUGE fan of the spinning technique to retain lucidity in dreams where I feel myself starting to either wake up or lose control.

      Like someone above said, get LaBerge's book. He tells you all about the spinning technique. It's very easy to do, and for me, EXTREMELY effective. When you feel yourself losing control, just start spinning your dream body around and around. Once I get going, I like to purposefully fall backwards (it's not like you're gonna get hurt). Just the sensation of extreme motion in my dream makes me instantly "wake up" into another lucid dream. It's like it recharges my lucidity batteries or something. An absolutely AMAZING technique. I'm endlessly grateful to have read that book.
