A normal night is 8 hours for me. If I sleep less than 7 hours for two nights in a row, I no longer function normally.

7 hours, nap sometimes (you didn't list that as an option though; appropriate for me would be "when I can"). I'd like to binge occasionally but it's tough with the life I have at the moment. I guess too it depends on how "binging" is defined. If it's going 20+ hours in a row doing something, then I've never binged in my life since college, apart from maybe 2 or 3 days in the summer when I went to the Mondiale (beer festival) in Montreal and drank from 9 AM - 3 AM, back around 2005 or 2006. But I have done stuff like watch 10-11 hours of film 3 days in a row - still getting adequate sleep of course.
Here's to the fools who dream.

The longest I've binged in my life is about 12 hours, I think. That was when I was living alone. Maybe did it 3 or 4 times, not more.

Usually around 6 hours in the work week (sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less) and 8-9 during the weekend, so I rounded it to the 7-8 category.

Rarely nap during the day, though I do currently live in a country with a tradition of siestas (less normal now though).

Yes, Fori needs a good rest, and regularly so.

Not really sure how much you need to see to binge. If full day or close, essentially never - but in courtesy of grey areas I said regularly.

That's me too. Plus, more sleep when sick obv.
Although I try to restrict sleep to Saturday and save time on Sunday, but sometimes Im just too tired after the week.

A 6-2-6-2-6-2 cycle looks good if you're binge watching all day, I hope to try that. Watching more than 3 movies back to back is probably too much.

I like how the last option for "How often do you binge (watch, play, whatever)?" is simply "Fori". :lol:

I selected 7-8 hours per night, but I typically do get less than that during weeknights (work week), and make up for it on weekends.

I can survive on 6 hours of sleep, but I usually go for 7. I don't nap during the day, usually, but I try to if I'm going to be up late, because I'm not really a night person.

I spend about 8 hours trying to sleep, but mostly our youngest wakes us up three or four times a night, sometimes just shortly crying, sometimes because she has to drink - NOW, that is. So I ticked the "7-8 hours" box, but that's probably not completely accurate. I'd like to nap daily, but it happens maybe weekly, so I can't really say I nap during the day.

It has been years since I last binged movies, but I do binge on alcohol a few times a year. :whistling:

I'd say normally around 6.5-7 hours during the week. Probably more like 9 hours at the weekend. I think I generally catch up on sleep at the weekend. Never been very good at going to bed early. I'm a night person. If I wasn't working, I'd get into a bad routine of going to sleep at 2 or 3am and waking up at 10 or 11am. Work keeps me in a better routine although I could do with a bit extra sleep during the week. Occasionally get it but normally I'm too distracted by other things to go to bed early enough.

When my wife leaves town, I'll binge films for a day or two. Those are the days when I can knock out 5+ films a day, though I usually take a short break in between films. But it doesn't impact sleep, just that I have a lot more free time when the wife is away.

Normally, sleep is 6-7 hours. I'm a night owl, so I usually watch a film or two after my wife goes to bed. I also have the benefit of working from home, so I can wake up at 6:45 for a 7:00 meeting. :)

Around 5-6 hours on weekdays. It's 9 hours in bed but ever since I've been taking anti-psychotics I wake up around once an hour. If it's days where I have to work, for some reason I cannot go back to sleep if I wake up at 3-4 am. It reached the point where I take motion sickness medication for its drowsiness side effect. I NEED to take one to get to sleep. On weekends it's around 12 hours in bed but 9 hours of sleep.

I binge on weekends but it doesn't really go beyond 3 films. Back in university I would skip classes and average around 5 films a day.

This is me, except I tend to usually sleep half an hour less.
I can function with ca 7 hours for the whole work week, but then I'm fucking done and have not much energy on the weekend.

I don't know how some people deal with much less regularly.

3-4 hours a night is all I need.
This fascinates me. I literally can't imagine it. :satstunned:

I'm a light sleeper so I need 8 hours to feel well rested. But I'm also a really bad sleeper and a night owl, so I need ages to drop off. Thankfully I don't start work til 10am these days (and live really close) so I usually manage about 7 hours, but when I worked in a school I was constantly sleep deprived. Lying in bed being desperate to sleep but my body failing to turn off, and then feeling like a zombie the next day...ugh. It does still happen quite often, it's the worst fckin feeling. Sleeping pills help though.

I don't think there's anyone I envy more than those people who say "Oh I'm out like a light the moment my head hits the pillow!" BASTARDS.

I typically get between 5-8 hours depending on various things. I rarely stay up past midnight and when my bf was still studying I would wake up every morning from his alarm at 7, and I’m still in the habit of waking up at 7 regardless of when I go to bed which is annoying. I need 8 hours sleep to feel good. I don’t really binge anymore, since depression I get too restless, tho I occasionally have days when I 420 from the moment I wake up til when I go to bed but not that often.

I never nap, I can’t nap. It’s always taken me a long time to fall asleep but it takes me less time now usually. But once I’m awake, I’m awake and can’t go back to sleep til bed time.

Perhaps all my problems would be solved if this was still the case for me (at least they would seem to be), but my wife doesn't like me smoking. Wish I'd really smoked more in high school.

Yeah, I think you might be quite right there. I assume I have rather poor sleep quality (although my sleep tracker apps tell me I have a reasonable deep sleep ratio of 50 percent per night).
I'm honestly close to seeking medical council on the issue and get into a sleep lab or something. Cause it honestly sucks feeling tired most of the time all day, every day, despite sleeping what I think are healthy amounts of time.

Couldn't it partly be age as well? I need at least 7 a night too, to function normally, but that's been only since I'm in my thirties. When I was in my early twenties I could manage with 6 hours a night, while I was partying and drinking lots of alcohol and smoking tons of cigarettes most of the nights. The energy I must've had back then ... :blink:

I don't know if I'm typical or an exception, but I don't sleep a lot. Usually 5 to 6 hours per night, sometimes less. But when I sleep, I sleep very deeply (and I snore loudly, I'm sad to admit). There are shorter nights, sometimes, I'm somewhat of an insomniac.

But I've handled my insomnia by limiting my hours of sleep, that result in my being tired all the time, which makes me prone to fall asleep easily when the time comes. I usually wake up at 7-7:30 and go to bed around 1-1:30. Then I read, play phone games, or surf on facebook for a little while before getting tired. I'm a very stressed up person, and being tired makes me cooler...

I don't usually take naps, but I find myself enjoying that more and more, whenever this occurs (I would say once every 4 to 5 months), when I couldn't bear it a few years earlier.

Also, I often doze whenever I watch a movie. It's bothersome, but I've thought about it and concluded it's because I usually suspend my self-control whenever I watch a film. By letting myself go, I open myself to drowsiness, whereas I usually keep it away on other occasions...

I actually HOPE that it is some condition that can be fixed, cause it would suck even more if that was a permanent state that will likely only get worse.
But indeed, I needed less sleep when I was younger. When I finished high-school (our version of it) and when I was at university I slept way less and partied way more.
The same is true for drinking. Now I need mutliple days to get compeltely over a hangover, and we are not talking about being really stupid drunk, but nights with just mild buzzes and just one beer too many.

I usually sleep 8 hours a night (well, 7.5 hours of sleep and half an hour of waking up/snoozing).

I did an experiment a while ago, where I just went to bed when I felt tired and got up when I was done sleeping. I discovered that I pretty much always will sleep those 8 hours, but the time I went to bed shifted about an hour later every day (that is I naturally have a 25 hour day cycle). Since that gets rather awkward pretty soon, I now pretty much go to bed around 0:30 and get up around 8:30.

5-6 hours at weekdays. 6-10 hours at the weekend. Taking naps 1-3 times a week for maybe 1-3 hours. I normally have no problems to fell asleep. When i was younger i had no problem to sleep for 14 hours. I think my record is about 28 hours :D.

It is, isn't it?
But now the memories have faded, and sometimes I wish I had that much time again, just to get more than one BSc in 9 years. Or at least to read all the great literature, discover more music and films ...

So y'all better get the best out of life, kids! :P

WARNING: DON'T READ WHILE EATING

Ah, the good old baby days. It's been a while for me. Last week I was reminded about how it is to wake up multiple times during the night. I had forgotten, that I really couldn't take it. I went to bed at 22PM. When I was just doozing off, my oldest got out of bed and vomited all over the floor of her room. The playmobil and lego was covered with it and there were a lot of splashes on the walls as well, which are nearly impossible to clean. While I was cleaning my daughter, my wife was cleaning the floor. From the smell my wife went to the toilet and vomited there as well (she was feeling ill already). After everything was clean enough, we went to sleep, but I couldn't. My stomach was aching. Half an hour later my daughter vomited again, this time in a bucket luckily. An hour later again and after that my wife again. It was only a matter of time when I was going. And yes, between 3AM and 3:30AM I vomited in the toilet about five times. Every time I though I was done, started cleaning my mouth and had to go back. One time I thought I was clean, but the smell was still awful. Then I noticed the splatters had gotten into my nose. Now try to clean that! Almost impossible if you never learned how to blow your nose. So I tried to clean it with toilet paper. One advice: don't sniff in your nose while having vomit in your nostrils. The vomit will get back into the back of your through and this causes another flood of vomit. So indeed I had to run back to the toilet.
I didn't sleep all night. The only phase of that night when I got a proper bit of sleep was from 8:30 till 10:30 AM.

I got a bit off-topic here. Sorry...

Haha, JT! That reminds me of the first time our son had a nausea. Those kids don't have a clue about vomiting.

I had to catch everything with my hands to save our nice white rug from getting ruined eternally. The lesson here is not to buy a white rug while having kids, of course.

More nasty talk
I once found my youngest sleeping in a full puddle of vomit. She hardly woke up, vomited in her bed, laid her head down again and slept on. I had to wake her up to clean her.

And indeed, no rugs! Luckily we have laminaat (what's the English word?) in the bedrooms.

Another nasty thing: don't play with your baby holding her above your head shortly after it was breastfed. My first once gave back some milk right into my mouth.

Actually nailed through 7 hours of sleep last night! Apparently I dozed off while my wife was watching Sherlock Jr.

Haha, I never had the pleasure to taste recycled mother milk. But our daughter does throw up quite often, and from the smell alone I wouldn't be very keen to try it. ^_^

I could start about all my filthy experience with baby poop now, but let's save that for another moment. :lol:
