  • It is 13 minutes to 4 am here. And I need to be awake at 8:30-9:00. I think I answered your question. I can two days without sleeping but on the third day I might drop or experience serious side effects while awake.

    • I am almost certain I won't manage to sleep before 6 am or skip it entirely today today even though I have had a busy routine this week.

    • Why can't you sleep? You don't take meds or anything? ☹️

    • @Account Oh perfect, you got 14+ hours then!

  • Yes, but my tolerance seems to be waning.
    The longer i go on too little or no sleep, the worse i feel compared to the last time i went too long with too little or no sleep.
    It happens a lot because i’m naturally a night person, but i have been working early shifts for decades. Pretty much every night of every weekend i stay up way too late. Making my first day back to work an ungentle wake-up call, literally. Ell oh ell!

  • Sleep is essential for various physiological processes, including memory consolidation, cognitive functions and physical health. It can affect your judgment, coordination, and reaction times.

    When I was evacuated from Afghanistan, I was literally awake close to 30 hours, and the last few hours I just couldn't concentrate and felt I was intoxicated.

  • 2 days tops and I only know because my flight to Addis was delayed by 2 days and I didn’t sleep the night before. Considering I’d never fallen asleep on a plane before ever, I fell asleep the whole 13hrs. Missed all my meals and snacks. We landed, people deplaned and I was woken last.

  • I remember back when I was doing meth a lot of it i. would stay up for 7 days and any body that says thats not possible i woukd do this quiet frequently any thing over the 7 day mark my body would force md to sleep I ended up loosing jobs over it

  • Yes, the job I have had for many years often requires working in the middle of the night, after putting in a normal day's work. I've been able to do that, but when I get home around 8am (which means I've been up from about 26 hours), I hit the sack and sleep until mid-afternoon.

  • About 3 to 4 days

    • I feel like you are ODing it

    • Back then for a long ass time that was my norm. Sleep was almost non existent, and what sleep I did manage I had nightmares unless I was drunk or collapsed

    • That is weird, did you do any research on it?
