Have you ever slept for very long hours? Me, I have slept for 19 hours already from 5pm 'til the next day at 12 noon...wheew! That was really long. I woke up finding out the table is ready for lunch time which actually became my breakfast... hehehe :) How about you, when was your longest hours of sleep?

That's really long, what made you sleep for such long hours? Was it all natural - or, were you on sleeping pills or anything that time? My highest is nearly 14 hours, I really enjoyed that sleep session very much, I felt so relieved when i woke up and you know what, it happened just a couple of days back. Mine was all natural, I once woke up in the middle to latch the door when some household member had to leave. From 2 A.M to next day 6 P.M was the timing.

I use to get up late on Saturdays in my teens because it was holidays from school. The night before is spent on seeing horror movies upto midnight and over sometimes. Ang sarap matakot. Next day wakeup hour - 6PM.

I could never sleep that long. The opposite is true for me. In fact in graduate school I once went 5 days and 4 nights without any sleep. I never even get 8 hours of sleep, even if I spend 8 hours in bed trying, I probably get less than 6.

Ow...are you sick or something? It's unhealthy to sleep for less than 8 hours every night.

Actually I am very healthy. I have a very active mind and it just keeps running at night. I often get more and better sleep when I spend only about 6 hours trying than if I spend 8 trying.

What a long asleep was that. That is abnormal. Such could only be occurred when a person becomes tired. Or s/he takes some narcotic medicine, beery or soused person also takes long sleep. I could not imaging cuteclvs that why you slept so much long. A regional poet of our language says that “lovers could not sleep”. But you? I think you were not a lover at that moment. You were tired, or some thing was wrong with you. My longest hours of sleep was the days and night when I was suffering from typhoid.

Yes...maybe I was just tired at that moment without noticing it immediately. But, just so you know, I'm not a drunkard person or someone who's beery. It's just that my body loves to sleep and sleep and sleep.. And by the way, I want to comment on your quote which says, "Lovers could not sleep". Well, I think you're wrong if you considered it to be general. Not all lovers have the hard time to sleep. We are persons, remember? We also need to sleep and you are actually separating the normality between humans and lovers. I just want you to know that I'm always a lover might be of people, things, hobbies etc.. But, I could go to sleep. :) You also said that you also slept for long hours due to typhoid, right? Do you consider yourself that time to be "not a lover" due to the fact that you slept?

The only time I sleep more than 8 or 9 hours is when I am sick. I don't know how long is the longest I've ever slept without waking, but there have been times I've slept all day, waking up once in a while to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water, then going right back to sleep.

moon sleep - she is having a sound sleep
I really cant digest how could you sleep for 19 ours contiously,i mean you are so lucky to be getting that long deep sleep.i cant sleep continously even if i am tired very much.the problem is every time i just wake up in between,then it takes some time to get my sleep back again.i think the longest sleep i ever had was near about 10 hours long.this was when i had come after a long journey.i was very tired and also had slight headache.so i just came in had a bath and went for aleep.i think it was around 9pm.then i got up only next morning 7am.i dont think i have slept a greater time than that.well one thing i would like to know is what really made you to have such a record breaking sleep.i have only heard lions sleeping so long.

19hours??? wow. that's so long! that's not called sleep girl, that's hibernation! LOL just kidding. ^__^ I haven't had that kind of long sleep. I think my longest would be 10 hours and when that happens I wouldn't like it because I don't like waking up with the sun so high and the surrounding is so bright and everybody's up and I'm not. ^__^;; and sometimes when I sleep too long, I would get a headache after I wake up.

It happens at times. Exactly not with me. But with my son. He was preparing for his exams, spent long hours of sleepless nights because to study. After completing his exams, i,e., after completing his last exam, he came back, had his lunch around 2.30pm and slept. We forcibly wake him up for dinner, and immediately after dinner again he slept and woke up only next day afternoon,almost at launch time. It happens for young people, who are really tired for some reason.

wow! 19 hours of sleep will really make feel lazy and quite tired. I tried that before after getting home from an immersion program in the mountains of Ipil, Zamboanga de Sur. But i don't long hours of sleep are the most satisfying. Me, 5-8 hours of sleep is fine with me, what makes it satisfying is waking up at around 6 to 6:30 finding the sun rays slowly getting through your window and into your room.
