What is the longest you've gone without sleeping?

I can't sleep guys and it's already 6:51 am, the tea is not working- I always drink tea before going to bed, it helps me sleep.

  • It used to be 53 hours, at a 3 days 2 nights camp - no sleep from the moment I entered the campsite. Recently it could go up to at least 65-70 hours of sleepless nights, in between rushing for art projects and stuffs. I'd be like a zombie at school 😳 I tend to get kinda cranky if I don't get enough of sleep + without coffee.

  • What sort of tea? Some tea will prevent you
    from sleeping instead, due to caffeine.

    Also bright screens, like tv, laptop or phone
    can mess with your brain and cause sleep difficulties.

    I'd suggest taking some time off these things
    for 10-30min before sleeping, as it will make
    sleeping easier.

    I know taking a bath is a good way to spend
    the time before sleep, when leaving the brights screens.

    As for me, I need "very" little sleep.

    It's caused by a long time of not
    wanting to sleep, when I was a little boy.

    It became more normal for me to not sleep
    much, and now, I often go several days
    without sleep.

    When I do sleep, it'll be 4-5 hours top.

    I also have certain routines before I can even
    think about going to sleep.. like I always fill a bottle
    of water to have next to me, since I get thirsty
    in the morning.

    I also need to have an open window
    as I can't sleep when it's too hot.

    • it varies haha jasmine, valerian, chamomile and even lemon tea sometimes! it really helps me sleep! but not right now :/

  • I sometimes have crash naps without realising I was asleep, not sleeping is a sign of bipolar so I have done it loads of times longest I think was about 6 days without sleep.

  • The longest I've been without sleep was around 90 hours. I had back to back shifts, overnight and through the day, and was trying to finish a few assignments.

  • 52 hours, I was stuck overseas trying to get home. Sleep was not an option. Safe to say, I was as cranky as could be.
