How many hours of sleep do you need?

The supposed recommendation is 8 but to me that is insane.
I sleep maybe 4 or 5 hours and that's a challenge. Just post your sleep habits I guess.

Also whats the longest you've stayed up.
3 days for me. It was a psychology project in high school.

    I sleep like nine hours if I can. When I oversleep I get a headache, which is really annoying.

    I hate you and hope you die along with anybody else who needs less than 8 hours of sleep.
    Except maybe my brother in law, I like him.

    My little brother sleeps for 11 hours and that's natural for him. I attempt to force myself to sleep for at least 5 hours and its almost impossible.

    I actually hate it and am jealous of people who are so relaxed that they get to spend most their time in a dream state.

    I used to get 6-7 hours of sleep most days, with 8-10 on the weekends. If I didn't get that extended weekend sleep in, I felt a noticeable drop in my patience and academic and physical performance after a while.

    Now I work midnight shift, and despite my light-blocking curtains, have trouble sleeping more than 5-6 hours, even on my days off. It's pretty god damn terrible. I need to get back onto day/evening shift.

    Nine to ten hours naturally. I can do as little as three hours, but I find it very difficult to wake up. My mind still works as normal for a good handful of hours.

    About 6-8 hours most nights, up to 12 on weekends if I go out and stay up late the night before.

    I'm in holidays at the moment though, and am sleeping at super messed up times. Twice this week I've stayed up the whole night to try and get back to going to bed at a normal time, but then staying up til like 3am the next night anyway and messing it all up. I have done pretty much nothing for all of today, it just sort of went by.

    the idea of doing almost a year of night shift work actually makes me want to start drinking and smoking again

    augh

    i read a study that being awake when it's always dark and asleep when it's always light gave you cancer but i don't remember if it was a cruel joke or not

    Lately I always go to sleep intending to sleep for 8 hours
    It never works though so I just gave up.
    Either I can't sleep or I wake up too early.

    I think the longest I've stayed up is somewhere around 30 hours, probably a little over.

    Also, how does a wonky sleep cycle give you cancer?

    falling asleep with your eyes open is the weirdest

    once in my senior year math class i fell asleep without realizing it, eyes open. turns out i was "staring" at some bitchy chick. that's not the worst part though, i was drooling.
