Without drugs...?

I never made it to 72 hours. It's hard to say the longest since I eventually zonked out. My mother was yelling at me "PHONE CALL!" & I'm like... uh, shit, I can't open my eyes!

I don't do that anymore, & suggest that others don't. It really messed up my metabolism. For a while I had to be exaused before I could even go to sleep.

OMG. 5 hours? Are you insane? :blink:

For me, it was around 35-40 hours I think. Damn it was so tiring I would never do that again.

I start to get a little punchy after only 24. Probably 36-40 tops.

Honestly, there just a point of pure uselessness, when even chemical aid will not do the trick. I've gone for a few days with just little cat naps here and there. It will catch up to you; hard.

Close to 72 hours. After the adrenaline stops pumping, you feel like badness. All around. Horrible awful feelings.

probably about 4 days. I used to go on a streak of sleeping 1-2 hours every other night. After a week of that I got some of my best test scores go figure. Can't quite go that long anymore though.

Probably 24-30 hours, I try and avoid that, and eventually just say screw it, but I didnt drink any caffinated drinks though so maybe thats why, I just try and avoid doing that now, since when I was younger I would go 2-6 hours of sleep constantly becasue of school, and I cant do it anymore, not for that many days, ill eventually need a good rest after a few days.... it just catches up to you after a while I guess.

3 days, with 6 hours sleep over 5 days fall last year and 4 days, 4 hours sleep over 6 days last winter. I went without caffeine for the longest 2 weeks of my life afterwards.

The lack of sleep wasn't really a problem, it was the staring at a computer monitor for 16-20 hours a day that got to me more. My eyes wanted to bleed.
