I gained a lot of weigh when I was on Seroquel. But I stopped taking the pill years ago.

Pretty sure I've skipped one day of sleep and went to bed the next day like nothing happened once. So what's that... 40 hours? Strange thing is I didn't feel sleepy at all. Next day though, I didn't have any reason to not go to sleep, so I did.

However, I discovered that having some sleep is good, if only to be coherent enough to enjoy the things you normally enjoy. I also eschew the use of caffeine to stay up, as it makes me feel rather zombie-like. I prefer trying to stay up to being forced to stay up.

24 hours straight+
AKA I do not remember how long because I was a kid, but I have stayed up at least that long before.

4 days. Maybe a quick 15 minute nap here and there after some Benadryl and wine on the plane. It was a very bad time for me.

Longest I've stayed awake was 11.5 days (roughly).
I had started to catalog my descent into madness on YouTube for a little while (an ex-girlfriend had suggested I delete them after I was forced to go to sleep).
I had bought a case of Spike (it's an energy drink in the US) because I was working the graveyard shift. Unfortunately, I learned that when I had consumed one of them that it kept me going for a full 24-25 hours without any fatigue. That multiplied by multiple days...

My brother threatened to knock me out physically if I didn't go to sleep (I was hallucinating and my body was getting weak as fuck). Ergo, I clonked out mid-day on the 11th day of my journey into madness.

Do not try this at home. It's dangerous, it's not safe, and I was an idiot (albeit, much younger at the time).

48 hours due to procrastination x__X

I have never done drugs but by the second day without sleep I felt high and like I was dying.

2 days, I think. Maybe a bit longer. I think following those 2 days, it was my day off of work and I slept the day away. ;;
