I've tried various lucid dreamjng technics, from setting alarms at certain times in the night, to thinking all day about lucid dreaming and making reality checks. I know not everyone can lucid dream, but do you have anything that really helped you?

Keeping a journal on what you dream about. By so doing, you sort of "calibrate" your mind to remember your dreams (it can work to different extents). Depending on how acute your memory is, you will remember dreams to a certain level of detail.
You will become lucid when you do "reality checks". For instance, for me, gravity is different in dreams and I can breathe under water. If you do realize you are dreaming there is chance you will be scared and simply wake up trembling, paralyzed.2
