    Not very much, an average of four hours, I view this as a plus it means I have more time to fritter away.

    I need 8-9 and that's exactly what I get. I'm lucky to not have to get up to a job every day.

    I'd love to sleep a full 8 hours but just doesn't work. 4-5 is the best I can do. Long-term, I think it's making me insane :hypnotized:

    I have a couple of odd sleep disorders: severe obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy. So while it seems I would get plenty of sleep I rarely get a quality or good nights sleep. :redface: Eight hours is what I need but I have been getting by on 4-6 the last few months.

    Wow... looks like we need a new thread entitled 'do insomniacs have bigger dicks?' - I mean, forget nose, hands and feet, it's the only logical correlation here.

    True, when somebody worth staying up with is around, and they don't get me paralytically stoned.

    I need at least 6 to function somewhat coherently, I usually get around 7-8 when working/studying. When I have no routine I generally sleep when I need to and for however long I need to. This can range between 4 to 11 hours in one night, though I'm a big fan of siestas.

    (I actually wrote this after waking up from a 3 hour evening nap.)
