    I remain up for hours

    "Every night I go to bed and remain up for hours. Yesterday also I went to bed and remained up for hours and I slept at around 3AM in the morning".

    Please check.

    Re: I remain up for hours

    If you went to bed, you didn't "remain up" or "stay up". If you're up, you're not in bed. You "stayed awake".

    Every night I go to bed but I stay awake for hours. Last night, I went to bed at 11pm but didn't get to sleep until around 3am.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I remain up for hours

    OK, I understand now thank you. Is it correct to say "I stay up/remain up for hours" or "until 1AM (I know now it means I am not in bed)?"
