Does coffee help in lucid dreaming?

Postby ilovetech29 » 23 Jun 2011 14:03

Well coffee makes us alert right?So i was thinking if coffee is good for inducing lucid dreams?Because I had one lucid dream and i think it was due to me drinking a cup of coffee before sleep.So is there any scientific evidence for this:?:

Well I've drank tea before bed and had some lucid dreams. So I guess coffee should have the same effect. Well anything with caffine (candy,soda,coffee,tea etc) should help.

What are good appetite suppressants without caffeine? I used to take caffeine pills to suppress my appetite throughout the day and it worked wonders. Unfortunately, I've become prone to panic attacks on them now so I have to stop taking them and now that I am off them, my hunger comes back ravenously even if I've just eaten a meal. What are your experiences (good or bad) with various appetite suppressants that don't contain caffeine?

Best appetite suppressant is good quaity protein taken in small amounts are regular intervals. You get a nice feeling of fullness, wont eat junk or get sugar cravings as you will not be hungry.

What's your sugar intake like?

The Fructose in Sugar (sugar is made from half glucose and half fructose molecules) is known to "shut off" the signal that your body sends your brain that tells you you're full. One of the many REALLY HORRIBLE things sugar does to your body.

With that said, I sometimes meditate while on my lunch hour at work while sitting at my desk. Anyway, I'm usually LOADED with Coffee by that point, and I really do find that it enhances my ability to retain my awareness.

But, I also know that it works the opposite for some other people. In the end, as with most things, it's an individual thing and you'll need to experiment with yourself to find out what works for you. :)

I use the CILD (Coffee Induced Lucid Dreaming) method just about every night! Works like a charm!

The only problem is that all of my dream characters are nervous, engage me in edgy conversation about current affairs and existentialism, wear berets and smoke Gallois... ;)

Seriously, though, a cup of coffee in combination with the WBTB technique sounds potentially promising...

I've never heard about the CILD method, but it sounds cool.

And I thought, that coffee and sugar was bad before sleeping? But maybe that's only when you drinks too much?
