DAMMIT VIP!

(someone has to say it)

Brian said...

Three days. One of the most hilarious, wild weekends of my life. It will never be forgotten by me or my mates.

Cocaine is one hell of a drug!

janele said...

2 days.

And that's because an over-indulgent doc prescribed pseudoephedrine based on a few sniffles I had from post-nasal drip.

Never, ever took those again. Taking any type of drug scares me.

Stylemaverick said...

Oh lord. I have a 2.5 year old and I'm a full time student. During finals week this spring I did a 4 day stretch with a combined 6 hours of sleep.

Claritysk said...

Around 5 days, but than I started having hallucination and went to the dr.

WareCat said...

The two days I was in the hospital after having my daughter. Then, about two hrs a nite for the past four yrs. Yeah, fun.

DewieTheBear said...

About six days. I don't sleep much to begin with, though.

Renoblondee said...

About two full days and nights after hard partying when I was young and foolish.

Amy said...

Also two full days and nights -- I was studying for a final in college, and late into the second night decided I shouldn't sleep, otherwise I would miss my final. Then of course, during the final, I fell asleep. (The page -- it was swimming in front of me, I thought, "I'll just put my head down for a second." My friend was throwing pencils and paper at me to try to get me to wake up.)

Rolf said...

76 hours. No drugs involved. Just working with an "impossible" deadline.

Renoblondee said...

What's up with Enty?

Entyonamobile said...

I'm taking a break.

Turkish Taffy said...

Right now. I had been operating on 3 days without sleep. Anxiety issues. I popped a Valium last night and caught a few hours. I'm literally unable to function, but when I try to sleep-nothing happens.

The Real Dragon said...

Sherry R. said...

48 hours on a road trip.

A RESIDENT said...

Hazeldazel said...

Tempestuous Grape said...

5 days - meth

car54 said...

About 5 days, with the help of some lovely little blue pills that I used to take.

I used to work in theatre behind the scenes and it involved a LOT of all-nighters so for a long time the little blue pills were my friends....I don't do that anymore, it really messes your metabolism up.

Marieeee said...

6 days

nichole said...

48 hours

auntliddy said...

24-48 hours, hard to gauge time when you're on a weekend "trip", lol. Long long ago.

Kara said...

2 and half days during law school writing my first appellate brief for legal research and writing. I went to turn it in, literally walked into a wall, turned around and went home and slept.

I've had meth clients that have stayed up for around a week.

Robert said...

Made it just over 72 hours one time. Damn near fell asleep at the lunch counter in an old G.C. Murphy store.

silenceisgolden said...

A month, I like to test myself.

cOreY X said...

5 days while I was in the hospital. Pretty much impossible to sleep there. Idiot doctors wouldn't give me a sleeping pill even though I have extreme insomnia and nurses would loudly enter the room every half hour or so.

I pull 48 hour days all the time without sleep but when you're up 4 or 5 you start feeling nuts. Not fun.

Sean said...

3 days, in college. Finals/partying after finals.

Chris Jurgie said...

Six days on a good bender

Sugar said...

I'm asleep right now

mesewprettyoneday said...

48 hours on a deadline project, at which point I started to hallucinate.

Pogue Mahone said...

2 days straight while travelling overseas.That,combined with jetlag and the time change wiped me out.I was incoherent.

Redd said...

3 days resulting in about 7 pound weight loss!

califblondy said...

Took one of my bff's black diet pills (black beauties anyone?) I think it was two or three days and lots of teeth grinding. Yuck.

Gayeld said...

You are all scaring me. 36 hours without sleep and people will run from me, screaming.

Anonymous said...

4.5 days. No caffeine, or drugs. Whooping Cough. Awesome!

Count Jerkula said...

No drugs, just coffee: 36hrs?

Drugged: 5days. Friday morning to late, late Tuesday night. Locked up for the last 2.5. Good thing about being high on meth in jail is you don't even consider eating the food.



megan00m said...

4 days until I was hallucinating music coming out of the showerhead...I literally had to go in search of sleeping pills...breakup and well meaning friend saying...f him lets find his stash...

OneEyeCharlie said...

48 hours. Trip to the Soviet Union during college. I can't sleep in moving vehicles, so between the flight to Finland, the train from Helsinki to Moscow, and the major time zone shifts; I didn't stand a chance. First night in Moscow, ended up partying with some students from Moscow University. I had brought a bottle of Jack with me.Somehow, that evaporated, and I woke up in a bathtub the next day. Stories my kids will never hear.

Moekay said...

3 days after running out of Ambien. Not recommended.

Popnursing said...

Somewhere near 50 hours. Got trapped in the prison overnight during a wicked snowstorm. New shift never showed, so 6 of us ran the place for almost 2 days. We tried to sleep, but your body won't let it's guard down. True story.

SophiaB said...

43 hours doung a ridiculously ill planned RFP for a soon-to-fail early IPO.

PugsterMom said...

Bronchitis kept me up for days with almost no sleep. Do you know how hard it is to sleep sitting up? Every time I tried to lie down I'd go into coughing spasms. Just awful. Happened to me twice.

Liz Jaxe said...

2 days i think. I dont sleep well. I go 24 hours quite often.

ms snarky said...

3 1/2 days, because of work.

SophiaB said...

I remember those! Never took them but my friends thought they were great.

Marie said...

My baby is 6 months old, so, 6 months :)

SLEEP TRAINING THIS WEEKEND - HOO-RAH!

Robert said...
