(I learned about this from the movie Waking Life)
The digital watch method works like this: you wear a digital watch and look at it, say it's 8:03, look away and after a second you look at it again, if it says 8:03 or 8:04 you are awake, but if it says some other time, you are dreaming. Follows the same principle that the light switches I guess, electric, electronic stuff don't work in dreams.
I don't do these things anymore, I don't try lucid dreaming often anymore, every now and then when I see a girl in RL that is super hot I try to lucid dream about her.. if I can't the first night I usually can the second night, given that I haven't forgoten about her, or nailed in real life.. which btw has never happened.
But when I become aware that I'm dreaming in these occasions, I usually use the light switch test or the digital clock test. Sometimes I just kiss the prettiest girl that I have closest, going against my waking life inhibitions, and if I don't get a slap I know I'm dreaming. I used to worry about this behaviour because I thouhgt I might get confused and do it in RL.. which would make me be in trouble.
