best advice youll find is: keep a dream journal. wake up every morning and try to remember yours dreams, then think about them during the day. that is key. most lucid dreams happen when you realize "hey ive been here before" and you start playing around with your dream like surroundings. your brain begins to recognize dreams you have had, and that triggers a lucid thought. at least thats what I think..
one piece of advice that i heard from a psychology teacher was that every time you walk through a doorway you pause and think to yourself "Can I levitate? [Try to] No, so I'm not dreaming". if you can avoid feeling like an idiot and stick to it, then eventually you'll walk through a door in a dream and think "Can I levitate" and you kind of will. the act of walking through a doorway will have been programmed in your dream to trigger that thought. Another thing is to keep in mind that if you can't make out letters or clear words when trying to read a book, you must be dreaming. if you think about that though enough, it will pop into your head when you try to read something while dreaming. i think there is a scene about this in "Waking Life" you should see that if you havent already, its all about a lucid dream.

but uh, if you are always depriving yourself of sleep, then its going to be a bit of an uphill battle.
