      Staying Lucid Is Harder Than A Lot Of Things

      Okay, I seem to get a new problem following the solution I use to the last.

      I can become lucid, that's not a problem. But when I do, I expect the dream to end straight away(since my recent experience of becoming lucid usually last a few seconds, never longer). But, strangely enough, the dream doesn't actually end, and I find myself in my room in a false awakening, Where I just go straight back to sleep and end up dreaming non-lucid.

      Are reality checks what I need to work on?

      As soon as the "dream end", it's always helpful to RC because you never can be too sure if you really woke up or not.

      Just look at what you're doing when you lose lucidity. My best advice to retain lucidity is to stay detached from the dream plot. I'd be willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that you get sucked back into the dream plot every time.

      "looks at cusp" Uh, you didn't read OP, did you?
      And I would either go for doing a RC as akono suggested, or trying to kill the expectation through mantras or something.

      Just make sure to do reality checks every day after you wake up. This will prevent FA's from tricking you into losing lucidity.

      That kind of false awakening is pretty common. Remember to perform a reality check everytime you wake up - that's all it takes - and cultivate an attitude of distrust towards your state.
