Have you ever gone 72+ hours without sleep?
how did that work out for you?
Yes, I did it once, working on a project to meet the dateline. I took one or two hours nap a day, but it didn't help much. I have never felt so sleep deprived in my life. Since then, I really appreciate sleeping.
I have gone longer than that and did not hallucinate as drs tell you, some people are too aware to sleep like others and i am one yazoogal43
No way. I need my sleep. In fact everyone does. Don't go too many days without sleep. Otherwise, the mind will start to hallucinate (that's what doctors will tell you).
Yeah. I had bad insomnia problems in college. You hit a sweet spot around 40 hours that makes you feel giddy and full of energy, but by around hour 55 you realize that whatever chemicals were keeping you going are gone, then you start to crash, but for some reason you're mind is too active to let you rest, almost like your mind has forgotten how to turn off, so you spend a lot of time twitching, tossing, and turning, going "help me! Help meeee!" like Brindlefly. And when you do fall asleep, waking up is very much like a hangover. I wouldn't recommend sleep deprivation for anything but hallucinations and mood swings.
No... I never.. I love sleeping.. I can't stay up more than 20 hours
I did once, just to see how long I could stay up and what would happen. I made it to around 80 hours and got extremely bored and gave up. I didn't really have anything weird happen (no hallucinations or anything like that.) I did skip a lot of meals...without a normal routine I'd suddenly realize that I hadn't eaten for half a day or more.
I did come close as I did not sleep for 50 hours. My father was going through an operation and I had to take him to the hospital and then also take care of my mom so those few hours sleep didn't seem to bother me.
I have gone 72 hours without sleep and it was a horrible expierence. I felt as if I was on a different planet, and eveyone around me was an alien.
Yes, I usually don't sleep much during Finals Week. The most I've ever gone is almost 3 days without sleep...I drank at least two shots of coffee ever hour after the first day to stay awake. Suffice to say, I was jittery, grumpy, and sluggish the whole time.
I don't think that would be possible for me. The most I have ever gone is 48 hours without sleep and that was ridiculous.
no... but i have stayed up 48 hours and tht was hard enough to do as it was. i think it would be extremely hard to stay up 72 hours. consideriing that i kept passing out for seconds at a time.
Yes, I have and it was terrible. For some reason a few years ago I went through a period of insomnia. At it's peak I went nearly eighty hours without sleep, I was having hallucinations, crying, not eating - it was awful. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

How long can you go without sleep?

When I was in high school, the expansion for World of Warcraft, Burning Crusade was released. I stayed up for 7 days without sleep...it was pretty insane. Most people can't go one day, but red bulls+monster can defy that. I am also thinking of trying it again and blogging about...
