Experts agree that, with daily practice, it usually takes anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks to have your first lucid dream. Some people have one the first night they find out about it. Some people can take 1 or 2 months to learn. It really depends on your existing dream recall & intensity, skill and commitment.

VERY. If a regular dream is kinda fuzzy / distant / inconsistent, imagine your awareness rushing into your body, having 360 degree awareness, being able to pick out any detail you focus on, being able to feel physical sensation equally as vividly as real life... that is the kind of clarity you can expect from a fully lucid dream. Anything short of that is caused by partial or semi-lucidity, so you need to increase your level of conscious awareness further to heighten the experience. A lucid dream is like no other experience, it's rich, buzzy, unlimited, exciting... reality can actually be quite boring in comparison when you think about it.

Dream recall is important, but that can be learned. I believe everyone is capable of lucid dreaming with practice. Other important skills (lessons) you'll learn for lucid dreaming include: visualization, self awareness, and the ability to enter altered states (meditation).
