I know my family doesn't lucid dream and probably never will in a million years, but the difference is, they don't care. But you do, and I understand your frustration.
For me it occurred naturally, progressing over time due to my simple love for dreaming and remembering them. I think that brain plasticity and habit forming is what did it. However, it didn't really kick off until I was 31 and I'm 34 now. I don't know how old you are, but I am guessing you're a lot younger than 31. When I was in my teens I didn't lucid dream at all, so if you want to compare yourself to others and feel frustrated, keep in mind, when I was your age, it didn't happen for me either. (However I never tried either, and the root of all disappointment is expectation). Imagine where you will be when you are my age.... you may actually be better than me!
Yeah, I'm just really trying to forget about them. Do you know of any good hiding spots for a dream journal? XD
I'm 16, but started when I was 14. I'm going to try and stop comparing myself to others because in everything I do I always think that everyone else is better than me. Which, you know, you are, but you had to get there, and you did it.
Trying to invent my new hybrid method from the most promising existing methods, I'm going to use this forum to track my progress. I would be much obliged if you followed along and gave me your thoughts on it. You see, my new theory is based upon a certain idea, If you want to lucid dream, than every night is a success. The hard part is finding those successes, no matter how small they may be. I think I'll start with last night.
Oh, and, nice profile pic by the way.
