I was faced with alot of problems with SSILD. I usually wake up after 4 hours of sleep by nature. I would lose track of my cycles after maybe 2. I always take maybe 45+ minutes to fall asleep no matter what time it is or how tired I am. If I woke up anytime between 5 and 6 I would be interupted by my dad saying bye to me on the days he works(which is different every week). And sometime between 9 and 10 in the morning is when I can no longer fall asleep, and even if I did my dad wouldn't let me.
I know you're trying to help, and thanks. Yeah I've heard the whole "wanting it negates the effects". In fact most of the time I've been lucid is when i've truly lost all confidence in whatever technique I'm doing. Then when I become lucid again and remember exactly what I did I get excited and think I've finally figured it out(I don't anymore). Maybe I could try thinking about things I dont want see in my dreams. Not nightmares, but something I dont care about, but it would be noticeable if I saw it in a dream and use that as a lucid cue.
