Tampons at Night

I know that your chance of getting TSS is much higher if you keep a tampon in for more than 6-8 hours. I actually just found that out when I was on my last cycle. I knew I couldn't keep them in for a long time but I was not aware that I wasn't supposed to sleep with them in.
 I start my period tomorrow and was wondering if I should stop wearing them to sleep? Is it really THAT high of a risk? I have had my period for three years now and have worn them to sleep every cycle and have had absolutely no signs of TSS. 
Should I stop??? I really hate pads. A lot!
