After fives days (I realize this isn't that long) of meditation, reality checks and journal entries i got my lucid dream, and the funny thing is, it was in the one night i accepted I wasn't going to have a lucid dream. Not saying that i had given up, I just realized that I had to get up a five tomorrow and it was already eleven and i was still wide awake, so i accepted that I wasn't having a lucid dream that night.
And i was right, almost, I had a very LDless night, until I woke up only 25 minutes before my Alarm was to go off, not enough time to get back to rest. The worst thing was that I woke up completely empty, I couldn't remember a single dream (my dream recall is disappointing at best). I tried the WILD technique one more, trying to fall asleep physically but stay awake mentally, but that failed.
So I just thought I would lay there for the next 10 minutes and try to enjoy the comfort of my bed, and then boom I was dreaming.
I wasn't lucid straight away though, I was escorting my friend and an elderly lady to a seminar on Astral Projection, which is weird because I'm not a spiritual or paranormal person so I don't believe in Astral Projection, I haven't even read anything about it recently.
So after the seminar there was a very fancy ball going on upstairs, it was halfway up the stairs that i realized i was dreaming, I didn't question anything it just came as a sudden realization, I just suddenly knew but i had no idea why.
Suddenly the once blurry and foggy world came into complete clarity. This was the part of Lucid Dreaming that I was worried about, if it was so vivid, then why doesn't everyone do it? But I was not disappointed, whilst there were a few pixels missing from the picture, I mean literally squares on the wall that seemed to be missing parts of the dream, but everything else seemed completely real.
Once I got into the ballroom (actually more like a classy, modern venue) I tried to fly, remembering the advice I got about not thinking about flying but just flying, as if i was moving a limb, but even with this advice the most i did was made the ground under me wobble. I wasn't fazed by my failure, i knew i would get it eventually so i wondered into the almost deserted kitchen where the most Amazing looking cake was sitting on the table top. Even though I knew I shouldn't, I grabbed a piece of the cake for my own. It was a square of perfect chocolate almost like fudge, however the taste was very preservativy, like one of those pre-made mixtures you buy at Coles. Once again I didn't care, because I was actually tasting something in a dream, I could feel it going down into my stomach.
Now this is where my Lucidity began to fade, not my dream however, I obviously forgot to remind myself I was dreaming. I walked onto the balcony to find a giant old toad looking out at the ocean, I didn't find this weird just interesting (Lucidity fading) I asked him what part of my subconscious he represented as this was the main motivation for Learning Lucidity. He gave a long-winded reply that answered nothing and then my lucidity was gone, I became a locust like insect called a hypocrite and my friends and I traveled the sands at the front of the venue, it was very vivid, I was just no longer lucid.
I then followed to wake up, all of this happened within the space of 10 minutes, it was amazing and I have realized a few things.
1. I think I finally had a lucid dream because I stopped trying to have a Lucid dream
2. I am not very good at dream control and would like to improve
3. Even without dream recall, your subconscious takes you to some very cool and interesting places
4. I will always work on Lucid dreaming, for the rest of my life, and I simply don't understand why the rest of the population doesn't do the same

Yeah I know it isn't much,but still meditating and journaling,reality checking,and eating honey(vitamin B6). Hope WILD isn't as scary as 9gag says. Made a post of it too. Now I got to tell you congratulations on your first lucid dream!
It isn't scary unless you think it's going to be scary!
First lucid dream means that you're going to be lucid dreaming forever!
There's no going back
Your now a lucid dreamer!
It only gets easier from here!
After a bit of training you'll be having hour long lucid dreams in no time!
Why did you feel bad about eating the cake?
You could eat a bathtub full of cake if you wanted to!

1. This is quite likely. Trying too hard appears to have adverse affects when it comes to LDing, and i often find just 'allowing' myself one night where i don't try WILD or anything often results in a surprising LD
2. For your first LD, you shouldn't worry too much about control. Flying does take practice, but so long as you can stabilize and sharpen your dream visually, you're well on the way to mastering your LDs
3. Absolutely! My SC never fails to surprise me!
4. Good for you...I completely agree. You don't have to be special to practice, it's free, all it takes is effort. And the rewards are limitless!
