On average probably around 8... but I feel best with around 9 or 10 if I can get it.

Probably 7 on average. I go to bed at 10 and get up at 6. But I often hear the downstairs clock chiming at 11 while I'm lying there. And I wake up a lot at night and toss and turn. Last night I bet I got 5 because I slept poorly.

I answered eight, but it's prolly more like seven on average .... I'm really really lucky. The short-sleep nights are usually my own stoopid fault for managing my time badly (= spending too lon on teh Cellar)..

It's hard to average when I might get between 4-8 during the week and between 8-15 on the weekends!

I'm a professional sleeper, but right now it's really just a hobby because of work and stuff.

Between 6 and 7 hours. The alarms start ringing at 6 hours (for spouse) and I snooze off and on for another hour or so. Weekends are usually right around 8 hours.

This last Sunday night (Labor Day's Eve), I slept for 12 hours!! It was amazing and I was shocked!

I generally get 7.5-8 hours a day. Unless the wife has plans for me.

I rarely sleep for an hour straight. I hardly ever get to that deep-sleep state that actually does ya some good. Light sleeper, too. Everything wakes me up.

After my sleep study I found out I was averaging 9 minutes of sleep before I woke, for a total of about three and a half hours.

Now I take 100mg of Trazadone to help me fall asleep. and 200 or 300mg or Gabapentin to stay asleep. The RLS was waking me 50 times a night or something.

The past few months have been great, sleep wise. Still I can use a nice hour long nap midday when I can get one.

Grav, talk to your doc about a sleep study

2-5 when things are going good but not always at night and not usually in one go.
