SWALD?
« on: April 22, 2011, 04:18:01 PM »
Maybe we should CWILD to SWALD.  CWILD probably works cause caffine is a stimulant, doesnt this means all stimulants should work to. Shouldn't things like cigarettes and 5 hr energy work to.
Stimulant
Withdrawal
Activated
Lucid
Dream
I choose activated because we have so many of ILDs.

It is a good way of distinguishing it.

Stimulant withdrawal.  What other legal and common stimulants are people often addicted to?

-Energy Drinks (though, I wouldn't recommend this, as they are potentially dangerous)
-Sugary Foods.  Sugar and Caffeine are stimulants after all.
-While not that common, there is a product that is essentially a cup of coffee.  As it contains just as much caffeine in a tiny cube.  It may not be safe, as it is not recommended for those under 18.

Most of that has caffeine, but I believe it is the withdrawal effect which matters the most.
Also, energy drinks are really bad - they have much, much more caffeine than coffee, and much more concentrated.

How about nicotine? I wonder if you used a nicotine patch every day for a few weeks and then quit for a couple of days, if you could induce LDs by putting on a patch at WBTB.
In the secret space of dreams
Where I dreaming lay amazed
When the secrets all are told
And the petals all unfold
When there was no dream of mine
You dreamed of me.

The reason stimulants work is by awakening and alerting your brain they also make you do things faster. The reason you LD is because your brain is activated while your body is still shut down effectivly makeing you aware that your that your dreaming.
