Do you sleep with the lights on?

For me, I always turn the lights off before going to sleep. There were a time when I had a nightmare and I switched the lights on. It was a very bad nightmare that scared me so I turned on the lights as I slept until I woke up the next morning. But mostly, even when I have bad nightmares I always switch off the lights when I sleep.

I can't stand with even a slight bit of light in the room, I prefer complete darkness most of the times. No idea why. Though I do know of plenty of friends who choose to sleep with the lights on. To each his/her own I guess. :)

I switch the lights off too when I go to sleep. But when I was younger, like until I was 10, I couldn't sleep with the lights off. I learned to sleep without the lights on as I grew older. Maybe because my fear of the darkness became lesser and learned that darkness does not mean that there will be ghosts or something.

We usually sleep with the lights off; however if my husband is out-of-town, then I will sleep with the lights on!

Yes, me too. I also prefer to sleep with lights on. It is obvious that the lights will distract one from sleeping. However, even if the lights are on, I think I can still cope with it. I just shut my eyes, relax and I will eventually fall asleep.

Not the bright ones, but one that is called a night lamp here. Its of low wattage and comes in various colours. They are not a great distraction but useful nevertheless when one has to move about in the dark.

I turn the lights off before going to sleep. That is, if I have a companion in a room, but if I'm alone, I just leave the lamp lights on. I can sleep with the lights on as long as it's dim light. Good day!

I have nightlights that really help. I don't care about the dark but with kids and noisy dogs I get up two or three times in the night so I need to see where I'm going. Jacks

i always sleep with the lights on because i'm afraid of the dark. i can't sleep if it's too dark, i tend to imagine scary things. i feel suffocated when it's too dark. i don't know if this is a sort of phobia.

I sleep with lights off. I cannot keep it on and sleep. Many times when I forget my mom switches it off for me. Or else i wake up during mid night and do not get sleep at all after that.
