What the longest time you have been Awake?


#1

What has been the longest time you have been awake?


#2

About 24 hours during the first day of the school year.


#3

Ha the longest time I have been awake for is around 65 hours .that was from having to be at work for 4 in the morning than having to stay till 8 .then going out that night staying out till 4 the following morning and going to work again but a little drunk. Then getting dragged out for another night out. Then getting home at 6 in the morning and staying awake till.going to a family meal for my mums birthday. Which carried on till 6 that night. I think i finally crashed at around 8 or 9 really can’t remember as I was that tired. I would not recommend trying it as it really hard and not good for u

Probably like 48-52 hours? This was a combination result of 1. not being able to sleep on planes, and 2. flying transpacific like 14+ hours, and 3. then being terribly jet-lagged x_x


#5

About 20-21 hours, a couple of times on days when I’ve been to a late night movie/party/concert after school.

@Andy31 @enterprisi :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: that’s very impressive, how have you managed to not fall asleep?


#6

Lots of caffeine, and willpower! (also, having a hard drive full of unwatched movies, tv shows, and books is a good motivation to stay awake XP)


#7

Wow, bad memories. Heh, well I would have to say about 50 hours. This happened twice. Once reading a really good 8000 page book series (sadly, I had to re-read the last two books because I forgot a lot of details), and once (of all things😄) playing, or actually replaying, every CoG game I had a couple of times.


#8

I errr… was gonna say mine is 28 hours but 50-60 hours awake? I can’t imagine being up that long.


#9

I’m asleep right now.


#10

Yeah, it’s not too fun, don’t try it :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

Like I said, bad memories.


#12

just under 80 hours awake in 2010 just after Christmas. I ended up sleeping for 28 hours afterwards, i guess i went full hibernation mode. do not try it at home kids

28 hours - twice. Once at university, pulling an all-nighter. The next day I fell asleep in a seminar while the lecturer was talking directly to me… Not good. The second time was on the way home from Germany (to the UK). I’d been there for a long weekend with friends yet our flight home on Sunday evening was cancelled. (9:55pm flight at an airport with a 10:00pm flight curfew…) We all had to work the next day so spent half the night travelling to Eindhoven, Netherlands where we could get a morning flight. The second half of the night was spent making new friends and complaining about the airline (RyanAir - I know). We finally made it back to the UK and I got to work just a little late. A couple of hours later I received a work phone call from another department and found myself falling asleep as I listened. It was then I called it a day and went home. The great thing is that I’m still in contact with a couple of the friends I made on that flight, 10 years ago now! (they’re actually two of the characters in The Race…)


#14

My record is like 72 hours (I don’t remember exactly, but it was at least that long) from having two full time jobs and some schooling thrown in there. I constantly had a Monster in my hand. At one point my heartbeat was going really fast and wouldn’t slow down. Because of this I ended up quieting one of my jobs because they refused to reduce my hours. I slept for a full day.


#15

The longest I’ve been awake has honestly probably not been much over 48 hours, but I have gone 10 days in which I only slept about 12-15 hours total…that was pretty awful haha I started hallucinating at one point it was kind of a trip


#16

I’m an insomniac so I have at least one thirty hour day every couple of months. The longest I’ve been awake is three days plus a little extra; I want to say somewhere between three and six hours. It’s a foggy memory and I don’t remember the times exactly.

Like the other people here who were awake that long I too slept for a full day afterwards. That seems to be the standard response.


#17

4 days and 3 nights during one hellish summer.


#18

ok thats impressive to say the least


#19

I’d say that’s incredible and amazing! :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth:


#20

You fell asleep while the lecturer was talking to you xDDD lmfao.
