When your alarm sounds, do you usually set it back to snooze? I usually do. But after getting a few more minutes of sleep, i feel guilty for not waking up on the first ring. lol. Do you think that whoever invented the SNOOZE alarm made our lives better? =D

Yes, I think the snooze button is really helpful for me. I am not a morning person, so I am always really out of it when I first wake up. If I turn the alarm off, I often am so drowsy that I end up falling back asleep really quickly, so if I didn't have the snooze too wake me back up again, I'd probably be late for things all the time. lol I have also found that I sometimes reach over and hit the snooze button and don't even realize it because I'm still half asleep, and then I don't actually wake up until the snooze alarm goes off a little while later! It always confuses me cause I always just think that the alarm didn't go off at the right time, but I'm sure it did! Anyway, if it wasn't for the snooze alarm coming back on, I would get myself into quite a bit of trouble. lol

I find that it just keeps you tired all day long, my husband does it all the time. I cannot stand it, because it just doesn't help. Lol, he thinks that every second helps him. I just find it bothersome, and its bad for your health lol. Well, at least its bad for your brain. Its like its on autopilot all day, he he.

yeah, when we keep doing the snooze thing, we just get addicted to it. so, we keep doing it everyday. plus, it can be a little irritating sometimes. thanks for your response SilentRose19. =D

I use the snooze alarm way to much. I don't think it made our lives better lol. My poor husband is late for work because I keep hitting snooze and dont realize how many times I've hit it, and by the time I do its time for him to leave for work and he's still in bed lol.

yes, i always do that when its ringing, i never wake up immidiately when ring first i will have 3 times snooze before i will awake.its helpful because when you want to sleep for few minutes its ok because it will ring again.
