Alarm Clocks. Do you wake before it goes off?

Do you awaken when your alarm clock goes off or do you have an inner alarm clock that you wake to before the buzzer goes off? For me it depends on how rested I am. If I have had the night from hell and tossed and turned, and stared at the ceiling I find myself waking from the sounds of the radio alarm. I once used an alarm that blared out at me and caused my heart to pound. Rather than cause myself a heart attack I purchased a clock radio. If you inner alarm doesn't wake you it is easier to wake hearing the sound of music.

I do because my husband sets it for 1 time for me and I get up later and re-set it for the time I really want to get up. Most of the time my kids wake me before the alarm does so all I have to do is turn it off before it goes off.

I tried doing that when my husband woke earlier, but I was not able to go back to sleep.

I wake when after hitting the snooze several times.

My sister once placed her alarm clock across the room so when it went off she would have to get up, cross the room and shut the alarm off. One day she got up, walked over to the alarm and hit the snooze bar and went back to bed.

Yes, I wake up before it goes off because I may again get back to sleep if I won't.

I have been foolish and turned the alarm clock off before it goes off, and ended up going back to sleep. Now I have to make sure that my feet are on the floor when I do this.
