    smoking before bed will only hinder your ability to remember dreams, let alone allow you to realize and interact consciously with your dream.
  6. I think not.

  8. Melatonin also known as vitamin B6 helps induce lucid dreams.. you can buy it at any health store or co-op

    ok, I mainly dream about what im thinking about before bed. Focus on control of your dreams. Just a thought. I usually have negative dreams about what I think about that day, a big event that day or something random, with limited control of the dream.

    i smoke before bed so that i don't dream. i'd rather not know what will happen, and my dreams are too often prophetic.

    I'm into my dreams.
    I take B-6, B-12, B-Complex, and Melatonin every night before bed. The melatonin is really just to let me not wake up in the middle of the night.

    Also if you lift weights/take supplements, ZMA is really good for enhancing dream recall, and vividness.

    Nicotine boosts vividity as well. Smoke a ciggarette before bed. I used to.
    Lots of people who quit smoking, using the nicotine patch report crazy dreams unlike they're past dreams.

    Writing your dreams down every morning upon waking will increase your ability to remember them... I never really learned why, but it it really does work wonders, and suddenly you remember like the entire dream instead of just the weird parts and can't tie it together.

    And, and to answer the original question. Smoking weed is known to inhibit dream recall if not completely kill it. But not forever of course. I also think this is placebo to. Because these days I smoke weed before bed and stilll remember my dreams very well... it really just varies. Certainly won't help you to become lucid. That takes extreme dedication or simple luck. Some people go years without having a lucid dream. Others have one the first night after they learn about it.

    Edit: Oh, and drinking a Red Bull before sleeping is a terrible idea. Atleast for me, because I just toss and turn while trying to fall asleep... but I have real trouble with that from genetics I assume. But I won't say it doesn't enhance dreaming... if you can ever fall asleep.

    Good post, but I'm pretty sure the red bull idea wasn't to be taken seriously.

    On the topic of dreaming. I read an article a week or two back that said that people who drink a lot of coffee during the day start to have very strange dreams because it releases a chemical in the brain that causes visions.

    Nah. He's serious.
    And caffeine IS known to enhance dreaming... but seriously, just before going to sleep is not good if you're not a little kid who can just drift away calmly at any time.
    I love those dreams where you have them, and it was just filled with great things happening that could happen in real life, so its not so fake when you wake up, and it leaves you happy for the rest of the day. They come to me maybe once or twice a month

  15. all at once, right? that sounds delish! :ack2:
  16. I'm personally a fan of falling dreams.. you wake up with that adrenaline rush and then fall back asleep so blissfully.. ah..
  17. Melatonin and B6 are NOT the same thing. They are both good for dreaming though.

  18. ah mah bad.. i've seen them used together in the same discussion.. thought they were the same thing.. learn somethin new every day :D
  19. I read on wiki that some Melatonin is sold with B6 added, so I can see where the confusion might come in.

    Happy dreaming. :)

    only the powerful or important dreams break through my weedy defenses, but when one does break through, i remember it vividly no matter how much i smoked the night before. last one that did involved a tour group in a creepy carnival/ mental hospital, and there was a wall i had to push to escape, but as a separate person in my dream, and then as myself i watched that other person walk into a people grinder through a crack in the door. and it had a sign on the machine that said "people grinder" so i know thats what it was.

    and i remember several dreams from when i was little, like 4-6 years old. one involved escaping a dinosaur at a circus, and the other was a scooby doo/ bear combination. i've described it in detail on these forums somewhere, but i'll have to find the link because im lazy now.

    and i used to have "im stuck and cant run away" nightmares involving the twister from wizard of oz, and strange falling dreams where i have to figure out how to land, and the fear in those is that my legs will be broken. one of those dreams took place in a weird museum, and i was trying to save someone from falling by jumping off the upper level myself.
    and most prophetic by far, the dream where planes crashed into tall buildings, which happened the night before 9/11 and was brushed off as a strange dream. i have not discredited a weird feeling or strange dream since. when i was in the navy in boot camp i had 2 prophetic dreams, one that i was moving the racks to line them up properly (which happened about a week and a half after that) and one where i was put in charge of writing things (which happened within that week, because i had the super best handwriting i got the great joy o doing, redoing, and re redoing every written item that was subject to inspection)

    at some point you just have to say " fuck you dreams, you're going down." but preventing dreams is not considered a medical benefit by most people, but its high on my list of reasons to smoke.
