I can't say I've gone too long without sleep. Not much more than normal hour expanse. I used to think insomnia would be awesome - stay up late forever. But after hearing of these experiences, I have changed my mind. I didn't know you felt like crap afterwards.


It would be nice to be able to go without sleep and feel no after effects smile.gif but I guess we're only human. I for one, if I don't get a decent 7 hrs of sleep per night, I feel tired and can't do things the way I usually can. The same if I don't eat in the morning - my breakfast is very important biggrin.gif

Working at Festivals I don't get much sleep at all! At Cambridge Folk Festival one year I arrived at 16.30 Tuesday afternoon and didn't get any sleep until I went to bed at 4.00am on Saturday morning and was woken up 2-3 hours later and then didn't sleep until I got home on Monday night!!

At WOMAD each year I generally work about 10 days on a total of around 20 hours sleep!!

I do shift work and when I work night shift it's just me on shift. Mostly I'm on shift for reliability issues so I bring my guitar to work. It helps me to stay awake in the middle of the night. smile.gif

If I don't sleep at least 7 hrs a night, I am really good for nothing...No focus power whatsoever sad.gif and I tend to fall asleep wherever I find myself..Once I fell asleep with my head leaned against the rim of an open window and sitting on a barstool biggrin.gif

Wow. I'm not one of those people who can fall asleep anywhere.. I just don't know how people do it. I guess extreme exhaustion and/or lots of alcohol can make it happen but if I've got any sense of awareness then I can't shut off.

I only sleep normally if I haven't got some problems or unresolved issues in the back of my mind.. an inability to sleep is ususally down to unresolved things going on the mind so if I'm worried or annoyed or angry about something then it will keep me awake.

I aim to get to the point where I can just go to sleep with no struggle, like Cosmin can. smile.gif

The solution is simple mate - they won't go away or solve themselves if you stay awake, but if you get some sleep, your mind will be lean and able to focus, thus giving you a MUCH BETTER chance on finding a suitable solution wink.gif it took me a lot of time to make myself think like this, but it's worth it, trust me tongue.gif

Man I remember now being at RHCP concert couple of years ago, we went in the evening of one day, slept 1 hour during the night in line, then wake whole day, and went to sleep at around midnight in the car back home, so it was around 1 hour of sleep for some 40hours of runtime. Well, it was awesome anyway biggrin.gif

...furthermore it was summer, on a field in the middle of nowhere:

, and the temperature on the field can be hot, that day I brought a big umbrella, that saved the day, but still we were on like 40C, waiting from early morning to 4PM to let us into the festival grounds, the crowd was so massive and we had first places taken, so we couldn't get out of the crowd even if we wanted to. Who knows how many people were in front watning to get in, the fest held 100.000 people:

After RCHP finished, they were rushed back to the city, because major storm came and hell broke loose when 100.000 people needed to go fast outta there (they all came in the middle of nowhere with cars):
here you can see 100.000 people and their cars laugh.gif

so all the hell broke loose when people starting running through thunder, rain and mud to their cars and jammed the only road out of there..

Chronic insomnia mixed with an anti depressant I was taking to help quit smoking about 10 years ago and I was awake for 8 straight days. Needless to say, i went just a little crazy for a while.
