2white2fight, that usually happens when you do nothing in your day, just stay at home or go buy something from the supermarket, and that's it the whole day. You have to tire yourself up in order to feel dizzy and sleep at time, like 12:00 A.M. Work out? :p Do that first, then your biological clock will get used to the daily sleeping time.

Just got prescribed ambien and haven't had a bad nights sleep since. Except for the one night I didn't take ambien...which is a problem in itself.

i don't sleep too much as it is, but recently it's been really bad.

My falling-asleep time is around 3 or 4 in the morning.

i usually talk to people on AIM (if they're up) or i write, or play guitar, (or piano, for that matter) and usually fall asleep quickly.


by the way, cigarettes help, strangely enough. In differing dosages, nicotine has opposite effects - in smaller dosages, (short, quick drags) it's a stimulant, whereas in larger levels of blood nicotine, (longer drags) it is a relaxant.

Why not use one of the iPhone apps? I use WhiteNoise and MindWave. They are very soothing sounds that relax me and put me to sleep.

I've had insomnia since kindergarten and haven't been to sleep before midnight since then. In high school I would go to sleep at around 6:30 AM only to wake up at 7:00 AM to leave for school. That would happen 5 days a week and I would be able to sleep until about 8:00 AM on weekends. It was crazy.

a lot of people mistake just being a "night" person for insomnia.

Aren't you like in your 'teens, Alexander? :eek: Sleep is the luxury of youth. It should still come naturally at your age unless you're already dealing with grown-up issues. A good late work-out works for me everytime.

Its 3:40 am & I'm still awake. For the last couple of days I've taken Bennadryl to help me sleep. Obviously tonight or I guess I should say last night I didn't take any.:(
