Longest You Have Gone Without Sleep
- Thread starter RegentLennox
- Start date
I've done the 24 hour wake a handful of times, but the longest I think I've ever been awake is somewhere around 38 to 40 hours straight. I was much younger though, early 20's. I haven't gone even 24 hours without sleep in many many years now.
I struggle with insomnia and will go four or five days with no sleep. The first three days are no big deal, but after that I start getting jumpy. I usually just take some over-the-counter sleeping pills to get back on track. I can't imagine roughing it for 11 days like that.
When I was younger, still in high school I would do a lot of online gaming and I would easily pull an allnighter. One time I pulled two allnighters in a row but fell asleep at 5am, so I guess that would make it about 45 hours for me. Now, I can't even function normally if I don't get at least 7 hours.
