When I was very little, I had a bad dream, and told my mom. She said if you have another one, pinch yourself, and you'll wake up. One night, I did have another dream, and it was something unwanted, so I remembered what mom said: pinch your arm. Just as I remembered her advice, I thought: wait - this is a dream. MY dream. And I took control. Ever since then, I've been able to lucid dream. Of course during most dreams I don't think about it, but sometimes I do. I fly, I do Superman flights (like Neo), or have even taken a challenge from a relative, who said I should take it a step further, by transporting from point A to B without travel, but to instantly zap myself over to point B. That worked, too. After all, it's just a dream. Once you get comfortable with that "pinch" moment of realizing it's a dream, you're in there. It never goes away. That's my experience. I think it could work for anyone who has unwanted situations in a dream.
