Sleeping in pitch black

#1
This feels a little deja vu but I can't find another thread on it. Anyways, do you sleep in pitch black, or with some kind of light?

At home I used to always have the door open a weeny bit, everyone who stayed over would shut it and then I'd go open it again when they had fallen asleep, lol. It's not because I'm scared of the dark, it just felt strange to have it closed.
Here, I used to sleep with the bathroom door a tiny bit open just to let enough light in the room to be able to make out objects, but now I have everything off apart from a small lava lamp in the corner.

There's just something about the room being pitch black that makes me uncomfortable, I guess. :shifteyes:

I am the complete opposite. I hate any kind of light in the bedroom when it's sleeping time. I have extra thick curtains and if I go to bed before my good lady i usually have a towel stuffed along the bottom of the bedroom door so no light creeps under it.

I have no idea why because up until the age of about 23 I slept with the bedroom light on and now if I can open my eyes and see anything I hate it.

Well, I don't sleep in complete pitch black conditions. I mean, hell, you'd need to go into a cave or something to get that. And screw that, you're not going to be able to find your light in the morning. Or tell when it's morning!

...that aside, I sleep in darkness, though I can just as easily sleep with some light.

I can't have any light when I go to bed. I need to have as much darkness and cool weather to sleep with ease.

I sleep in almost a pitch black environment, the only light I have is from my clock radio.

Personally I don't like sleeping in a room where there's any lights since it's pretty distracting in my opinion.

Not a cave actually. I used to have a room in the middle of the house, so no windows, and once you closed the door...pitch black. It was great because you could make it dark in the middle of the day. Although, the downside to that is I now need near perfect darkness to sleep, and wake up the second a little light comes through my curtains. So to answer the OP, I need pretty much pitch blackness to sleep. I don't even have one of those digital alarm clocks, because the glow from the annoys me.

Did any light get in during the day though, or are we talking darkroom conditions here?
No light whatsoever. The door was a really tight fit, and a pain to open, so there weren't even any cracks for light to filter through.
