I can't for the life of me get 8hrs of sleep.Typically I go to bed between 12-1am and wake up around 4-5 am. It has its benefits, a lot of extra time to do things like watch anime , but can be annoying sometimes. I have to wake up at 6am for work and wake up so early I'm hardly ever late. How much sleep do you typically get a night?

Insomnia sucks.

Weekdays - 4-6 hours of sleep.
Weekends - 8 hours of sleep.

I usually can't fall asleep until around 1-2am and wake up around 4:30-5:30am.

On a good day I can get up to about 7 hours generally.

On a good night, I get 5 hours. Typical nights are 3-4, and the worst I've gone is 46 hours without any sleep. It was utter hell, and my eyes started to see things like below. I need more sleep, but my mind just won't shut itself off.

I can only sleep for about two hours straight without pills.

I use to stay up at least 1-2 times a week for 2 days to work on architecture projects for college. I would start hearing things and my eyes would water a lot.Not fun or recommended, that is why sleep deprivation is one of the worst forms of torture.

I run on 2-4 hours of sleep on weekdays. But I can get a lot of sleep on weekends. With the stress absent of the day ahead, though, I take advantage of that and stay up all night sometimes on weekends.

I am an insomniac, but I haven't felt wide awake, or not-tired in a long time. I only wish I required little sleep.

Yes, a combination of caffeine, studying, anime, gaming, working part-time, and surfing the web contribute heavily. It takes a heavy toll on you when you can't afford to sleep during the day.

Only 4-8 hours per day. I've gone a few days without before, in the summer.

Sometimes it takes like 8hrs of rolling around to fall asleep only to get a few hours of sleep. Then other times i go into weird sleep binges where i sleep for like 18hours a day for a while.
Even if i go to bed non tired and get 8 hours of sleep, i wake up tired. Always more tired when i wake up than when i go to sleep.

some people just don't require a full 8 hours of sleep, but if it's bothering you maybe wear yourself out a little more throughout the day. I can do fine with just 6 hours.

I get by on four to five hours during the week. Five to six on weekends and the occasional nap. I have been known to nod off in meetings at work and get yelled at, so I bring tea or coffee to them.
