I have been a vivid dreamer all my life. I am fairly certain that during my childhood I even had a few lucid dreams. Lately, the past year, I have been doing a LOT of research into lucid dreaming. I'm reading books about it, internet articles, forums, etc. I find that I am actually regressing. I went from having multiple vivid dreams a week, to almost none. Has anyone experimented in the lucid dreaming world? I'm becoming very discouraged. I've been taking alpha brain before bed and 5-HTP to enhance the dream state and had some luck initially, but lately nothing. I'd love to hear from some other oneironauts.
