    I've only had a handful of scary dreams in my whole life. Those were probably related to something I saw on TV or movies. Most of the time I have interesting dreams and sometimes I even know I'm dreaming while I'm in them.

    I have recurring dreams. The most frequent one is I am alone and being chased by unknown predators with seemingly no way out of my situation. I have to physically wake myself to escape. I also still dream of smoking 20 years after giving them away. Then I chastise myself for falling into the habit again before I realise it is a dream. Weird eh.:confused:

    The way I stop dreaming is to awaken.

    You might have meant your statement to be somewhat less than serious but there is more truth to it than you may know.
    I am nearly Always aware of my dream cycle and what is going on. If my dream is something I would rather not have happening, I can force myself out of the dream and wake myself in the process.
    Since I learned how to control my dreams, I have set up a system of triggers which alert me before an event I may not like happens but if all else fails, I can still wake myself up before things get too radical.

    The only event I cannot yet prevent from happening is when I get paralyzed and cannot move. I have taught myself not to get too anxious during the event and to simply wait it out.

    Since your brain never stops working (thankfully), you will dream. If a drug turns your brain off, I'll cry at your funeral.

    Not a problem with me but I don't know why or how I dream or don't dream. Most often I suspect I dream but don't remember.

    That paralyzing event is very frustrating to me. My mind sometimes will tell me, just stay that way, yet, I fight like there is no tomorrow to break it.
