Re: F... insomnia

I've had some sleeping issues in the past, but working out/running helps quite a bit.

Agreed. After a run I always sleep like a log that night.

Avoiding caffeine later in the day helps too. I like to have a cup of coffee after dinner, now I go with decaf.

Re: F... insomnia

Tried a glass of wine. Same results. Drinking enough to knock me unconscience for the entire night pretty much involves a bottle of Jack Daniels/Jim Bean and leaves me at less than peak performance the following day.

Marijuana fights insomnia. Valerian can help you you want to take a legal herb.

Agreed. Things aren't as cut and dry as that.

Yeah. College was (is) the worst part of regular life to me. I love having the 9-5, no homework, no bullshit reading, no bullshit assignments, etc.

I agree with the people about running/working out. For me, running makes me sleep pretty heavy. That said, I have to run in the morning. In the evening it just gives me more energy!

I never feel rested after I have any alcohol. Even 1-2 drinks make my sleep restless.

Re: F... insomnia

I'm with you there Daseal. I never get good sleep with alcohol in me. I wake feeling like I had just fallen asleep.

Sometimes if I have a glass of wine with dinner, I can get away with it but anything else means a long day ahead tomorrow.

Re: F... insomnia



Raise your hand if it's 7:30, you're still awake and just now getting tired but unfortunately your alarm just went off because you gotta get up for work. Lame.

"raises hand"

F insomnia.

Re: F... insomnia

i luckily dont have sleep problems. my body literally starts shutting down around 10-11 at night and i got about 2 mins to get in bed before i collapse.

ive started reading in bed too but thats really just a reason to get away from the cranky preger who roams the basement entertainment room at night.

when i drink i get all pumped up and cant stop or sleep until i get hammer time, usually spend all night watching lebowski or something after the bars close.

i must say, with this baby on the way i dont miss the green at all. been 3 months without after 20 years or so of everyday all day . . . next step is cigarettes which i have to quit or atleast make a doctors appt for by monday.

i do feel sorry for people with insomnia, that movie was pretty good. maybe one day ill develop some problems along the line.

Ugh, so lucky. Enjoy it, truly.

@OTM: Just wait until the baby comes, I'm sure you'll treasure these days more than you can imagine.

@Matty: Well on the bright side, I was sleeping like a baby after long night + work. Sure I didn't go out with my friends but at least it was one of those sleeps where you're so exhausted nothing can wake you up, including 3 calls and a few texts from friends wondering what the deal is haha.

Re: F... insomnia

I've always been a night owl, but never suffered from insomnia. Occasionally when I'm wide awake and I know I need to get to bed, or when I can't sleep at all, I'll pop a melatonin. Safe, all natural, and one 2mg pill and I'm out like a light.
