      great combo.

      I ordered galantamine a few months ago and never tried it as much as I wanted to, even though it worked the very first time I took it at 6mg.

      So I decided to try it again 2 nights ago. I had incredible success. I went to sleep at 10:00, woke up at 3:00, and took 6mg of galantamine hydrobromide along with 2 letchin soft gels which contained 280mg phosphatidylcholine combined. I stayed up for 45 minutes writing in my journal (had a dream where I talked to DC about WILDs. nonlucid), remembering my intention, doing RCs, and thinking of waking life as if I was in a dream and trying to levitate things, manifest objects, etc.

      Then I went back to sleep on my back and WILDed. What I estimate to be 40 minutes after trying and not getting much HI (unusual for me) I felt my heart rate increase and thought this is it! It wasn't. So I rolled over to sleep on my stomach, but stayed aware anyway. I had a DILD and decided to manifest pizza for ToTM, ate it and it tasted like dull pizza, inflated in my mouth, and turned sticky like a huge ball of pizza flavored gum.... Not good lol. It was a pretty clear dream, good control.

      I woke up, wrote down the dream and went back to sleep. DILD again. I kept trying to have sex, but the dream wouldn't let me and faded away each time -.- I would wake up in my body and not move, except maybe my index finger pressing the bed uncontrollably. I remember being transported into a dream where I was looking out of a window. First successful DEILD. I had many DEILDs that night and many dream scenery switches, it was craziness and seemed to last for hours. I probably had 5+ dreams chained in that single REM period and only lost lucidity temporarily between those dreams before being signaled to do an RC because I just knew.

      Defiantly trying this combo more often, but not more than once every 2-3 days, as recommended earlier in the thread.

      I took 4mg of Galantamine and 300mg of alpha GPC for the first time last night and had trouble falling asleep because I was pretty awake before going to bed at first and too active when I got up 3-4 hours later and probably too excited but holy crap it was just chaos the whole rest of the night.

      False awakenings, weird pseudo dreams, dreams in my bedroom that were super vivid (one clear memory was looking out my bedroom window and a bright green firework coming up over the building in front of it and flying towards me straight over my bedroom no idea how that didn't make me lucid, another was tossing a cute smiling fit girl stomach down onto my bed and peeling her yoga pants off that one didn't last long but it was super vivid and crazy and I never have dreams in my bedroom so that's a new thing, another I "woke up" after that yoga pants one and wanted to write it down to remember and like get back to it somehow but I had two laptops on my bedside table instead of the normal just one so that was another FA), moments of lucidity all over the place, etc. I can't wait to take it again, gunna try to do it when I'm more tired so I drop into a proper sleep before it really kicks in because it felt like I never got fully asleep this time.

      Did 8mg G and 600mg of the alpha GPC last night after 3.5hrs sleep (at 3:30am) and did some SSILD cycles falling asleep, had a couple vivid dreams but was never quite fully lucid in them.

      Woke up and then actually did a WILD for the first time! Wasn't even really trying to, all of a sudden I realized there was a wall next to me and I reached my hand out to rub it which cemented the knowing that I was in a dream and not in my bed and then to try to stabilize myself in the dream. Vision was really blurry/faint and actually faded completely on and off for a bit while I kept rubbing/touching the wall to stay grounded. Eventually I actually had some vision consistently and went into a simple small room for a few seconds then remembered reading that dreams rely a lot on movement so I went out into the hall and moved quickly down it towards an exit.

      I burst out into a grassy area with tall apartment buildings on my right and a 3ft tall red painted concrete thing in the middle and it was SO vivid. It was INSANE, like high definition turned up to 11, kinda like HDR photos or something. Bright sun, super green grass/trees. Went over and touched the red concrete and looked around for a bit in amazement, my vision was a bit closed off like my peripheral vision wasn't 100%, was wearing sunglasses automatically which was nice since the sun was so f'in bright. I decided then to try flying for the first time, aimed for a grassy area 100yards away and did a nice super human leap over to it, tried to take off again and ended up in the tops of tall trees (hurt a bit on landing in them, lol), popped back out of them and on my next descent saw a tall dead tree with no branches except a lateral one coming off the very top so I grabbed onto it and was swinging around and around with endless gravity/inertia and the tree was cracking/breaking but I was having a blast, once it was on it's way down I took off again and headed back towards the buildings with better sustained flight, saw a big school with sports fields and decided that was a good place to crash land but didn't make it, landed on a building top just short and then woke up at ~5am. Wrote this all down after failing to DEILD (gotta re-read how to do that) and then fell back asleep and had another vivid non-lucid.

      10/10 would recommend people try this stuff, this is my 3rd go at it in a few weeks and it seems like my body had to get used to it, the first time was just chaos and I never really slept, 2nd and 3rd are more calm and steady.

      Tofur. I have to agree with you that this is a great combination of supplements. I think that starting with LDing at my age (64), I may actually need the supplements. The only thing I do differently than you is besides taking the 8mg of Galantamine and the 600 mg of Alpha-GPC, I take 500 mg of Choline Bitartrate at the same time. The reason for this is that the regular choline peaks at about the same time as the Galantamine where the Alpha-GPC takes 3 hours to peak. I believe that the regular choline which peaks at the same time as the G initially helps me get lucid, and that the longer acting A-GPC helps extend the LD, or prolongs the time in which I can have a chance to have a LD. I've experimented with various dosages of each supplement and found the dosages I've already mentioned work best for me. I used to think that once I get used to having LD's, I'll stop using supplements and just do it "naturally". I don't feel that way anymore. I only try to LD once a week, sometimes twice, but because it's hard for me to get up and do WBTB, I'm not going to take a chance of not having an LD by not taking supplements. I do work on memory and self awareness on a daily basis and actually practice my WILD procedure once or twice during the day prior to the night I attempt to WILD. I make trying to have an LD an event in order to develop my mindset. This all works for me. Last night I had a very fun and exciting LD, my 7th out of my last 10 attempts. I have had little success with DILDs, so I plan on keeping on doing what works for me. Having a great time!
