Thanks for recommending other alternatives, Red. I might just vape in order to stop smoking this time around.
Wake Up to Conscious Dreaming

I lucid dream a few times a month. Mostly DILD's where I'm just semi aware I'm dreaming, but I had a WILD or two as well since November. Not necessarily from fully awake to a dream, but when a dream ends and I don't fully wake up, but instead transition into a new dream, usually extremely vivid, and starting from my "dream bed". Odd how a tripped out of body like experience actually makes me feel more collected and calm for the rest of the day.

How would one be able to verify that the content revealed through dreaming is a lost memory when memory itself is so unreliably precarious? How could we rule out the common false memory syndrome or the déjà vu brain glitch?
The only way to verify the authenticity of new mental material coming to the fore would be to revisit the places where you think your brain first generated the conscious information relevant to what was happening at the time. You'd have to play detective.
Not saying it's impossible, but I'm not so convinced about successfully retrieving lost memories from the subconscious via lucid dreaming. I suspect we may stumble upon accurate information by lucidly scanning the deepest recesses of our minds, like a lucky dip.
Retrieving lost conceptions is never guaranteed with every attempt. A course in mnemonics could help lucid dreamers hone their retrieving skills and home in on those conceptions evocative of nostalgia.
Perhaps scents can revive memories of people and places long forgotten. Who knows.
