It varies. Some people have an LD on their first night of trying; for others, it can take several months or even longer. As for me, it took me around three or four weeks. Just stay positive, don't get discouraged, and keep trying!

It depends on the person. Some succeed the first day, some need to wait weeks or moths (or years). It also depends on your motivation and effort. I would guess that averagely you get your first lucid dream in a week or two. After all, you need to get your dream recall and awareness up, and that takes a week at least I would guess.

It only took me like 2 or 3 weeks to have a WILD. I haven't had too many lucid dreams since, but I'm trying. It takes perseverance!! smile just wait, it will come and when it does it will be/feel beautiful

I have been trying for almost 4 months and I haven't achieved it yet. But I think my main problem is that I have been lazy with my DJ, sometimes it would go weeks between everytime I write down a dream - which is not good. I think that I got a bit too excited about the whole thing and as I failed a lot of times I got demotivated and took breaks from attempting it. I tried to do a lot WILD attempts, which I've heard now is not the easiest to do as a beginner.

I have gained new motivation for LD. My dream recall is pretty good atm and I've been good at doing RC's lately and written down at least one dream per night - I only focus on one RC atm (looking at my hands). Will try to find dream signs and I'm going to use the method MILD.
I'm taking this journey slowly now and some day I will (hopefully soon!!!) get there.

edit:
I've been close two times though. Both of these times I just suddenly realized I was dreaming (not sure how). The first time it happened, it felt like I was sinking into my bed and I heard a creepy voice (demonish) which scared me for a second and I woke up.
The second time it was kinda the same, but I heard loud screaming instead.. and then I woke up.
I guess I got too excited and "scared" at the same time. That's also something that needs training: Stay calm.



Current LD goal(s): To be calm when I realize I'm dreaming

Yes, since motivation creates a strong intention to have LD's. Our subconscious only understands the "language of intention and expectation" and will gladly supply you with LD's if you have the right focus of mind.

After nine days after learning about lucid dreaming and workin on dream recall I got my first real lucid dream. This was on the second day I had ever tried to induce. If you keep an open, non-gullible mind and if you know you can do it, then it's easy as cake.






Oh and practice helps smile

I had my first lucid dream less than a week after I started a dream journal. I wasn't doing reality checks or anything during the day. I just noticed that the dream made no sense.
I think it's different for everyone.

Theoretically, you can, but a DJ is a pretty awesome tool that 90% (maybe even more) of the LD'ers on this forum use. The reasons for this are simple: besides motivating you to have LD's, it also makes you able to recall more dreams than you averagely do without a DJ. A good dream recall is crucial, since you don't want to forget a LD you had (which is very easy to forget). Secondly, it is fun to have, especially when you look at it after a long time (a couple of years). It works as a dream archive. Otherwise, all those awesome dreams would be lost.
