An effective tactic that worked for me was anytime I see or hear anything unusual, or see something out of the corner of my eye and sometimes just periodically throughout the day for the hell of it, I try to push my finger through my hand.  This way, when I am dreaming and I see/hear something or just randomly try it, the finger DOES go through my hand and I know I am dreaming.

The first time I actually put my finger through my hand and realized I was dreaming, I woke up right away.  It took a few more times to not wake up, but after a few times you'll be able to stay dreaming.

The movie Waking Life was a cool study on dreaming.

I lucid dream a lot. No trained brain here, just years of insomnia and trying out many, many prescription medications to get me to sleep and stay asleep. I always recognize when I am dreaming, not a problem. If it is a new dream, I generally cant control what is going to happen (nor will any electronic work in my dream). But, if its a re-occurring dream, I definitely change the outcome if it was a dream that had something bad happen in it. Who knows what else is going to happen, but I can at least avoid the bad part I know is coming. Once I had like, 4 consecutive re-occurring dreams and changed the outcome of each and they all ran together because I had changed it. Once I changed the first one, it started running into a new re-occurring dream, etc etc.

The worst dreams? The ones that frustrate the HELL out of you and you wake up feeling that same emotion. What a way to start the morning....

The closest I've come to lucid dreaming is that once I dreamt I was on the set of Return of the Jedi, where I was up in the trees of the Ewoks. What made me realize it was a dream was that Star Wars came out before I was born. I realized that my being on set was impossible, therefore I was dreaming. Then I got to explore the set, however I didn't interact with any thing other than the set.

When I was younger I had lucid dreams so that I could "date" the girls I was infatuated with at the time. It was a humbling experience that, even in my dreams, I would sometimes get rejected.

Although I can't lucid dream at will, it does happen occasionally and it's a bizarre experience. Last time it happened I decided to listen to some music within the dream and was able to change and tweak each individual sound at will. Quite a cool experience.
