It's possible, but it takes far more willpower and determination that just stepping it back slowly.
In fact, I used to do it often, I would call it "resetting the body clock". One morning you would stay up late, wake up dreafully early after only 3 hours sleep, then crash out ~8 hours before you want to wake up. Then when the alarm goes off, get up. And do it that way for a week. You'll be a zombie for only one day that way, and not several. It works for me, but others may have different approaches.

The two most important factors that determined my success is that I exercised first thing in the morning, and second thing after I woke up was doing something I truly love. Exercises made my body fully operating, it was like a clear message "Wake up body, no more sleep, time to move". If I had, instead, sat next to PC, my body could have assumed that I wanted to sleep, just in different position Plan your day so that the first thing you do is something that will make you jump out of bed in excitement in the middle of the night. I just love it

Why wouldn't you take it step by step? Ask yourself if it's worth taking the risk of messing too much with your sleep cycle. I'm sure it's possible though. What you need is discipline, which in turn requires you to know exactly why you're doing what you're doing.

Here is an interesting thing I tried and it worked every time.
Make sure when you sleep, you are not comfortable!!
When you are in bed and highly comfortable it is extremely hard to get out of that paradise and step to the real desert.
But when you are sleeping uncomfortably, then the very next thing you want in the morning is getting up.
Of course you will be crying to sleep at the first week, but after time you'll just get used to it.
Life is a habit.

I personally wake up whenever the **** I want to -- running a internet biz helps.
It's not how early you wake up -- but what you do with your day
Here's how you can make $400 by the end of the week on the Internet, cold hard cash -- the methods are free!

I was surprised to see that there are people to whom those questions don't make sense. They don't understand how anyone would write about how to wake up early, or why anybody would need advice on this subject.
But anyway, I know waking up early can be difficult, especially if you don't really have to do something in the morning that is obligatory.
I guess, if your strongly believe it is vital that you wake up at 5, you can. I know I can, whenever I need to leave somewhere. It doesn't matter where and how tired I am or how motivated I feel. If it's somewhere I need to go (at the mountains/ I'm meeting someone / I'm leaving for the USA - If I got to go then I got to go! It's not a matter of willpower. It's a matter of working on auto-pilot. But if I decided to wake up at 5 of my own choice, just to make an experiment, I would need to be really convinced that it is important, or very pissed off by a previous failure, to succeed.
