If any of you resognise me, it'll probably be from the last thread I posted on this site, which was because I had trouble sleeping. However, in a cruel twist of fate, I now need the Pit's help in staying up all night to do coursework.

I'd much appreciate it if you give me any advice on how to stay awake and at least alert enough to write a few pages on Brechtian Drama techniques.

inb4 coffee, I'm already on it.

Energy drinks.

I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.

spread out your energy drink, don't gulp it down. and also get up every so often and blast some energetic metal and thrash around like you're on stage or some ****.

like dwight schrute's pre-sales call ritual, you know?

ahhh but the thing is, I wouldn't have the willpower to actually get up in two hours, I'd just roll over and doze off again.

I'll try it another night, but right now, I'm just getting on with it, taa for the tip though

Thanks to everyone who's offering useful advice, I really appreciate it

Move your alarm clock far enough away from your bed that you'll have to get up to turn it off.

Answers to both threads:

To sleep:
-Sleeping pills
-Chamomille tea
-Don't watch T.V. or go on the computer
-Avoid stimulating music
-Read a book or something
-Warm milk
-Get drunk and pass out (might not work, I know when I try to sleep when I'm drunk I get bedspins and my ears ring very loudly)

To stay awake:
-Coffee
-Tea (caffeinated)
-Energy drinks
-Sugary foods
-Stretch often (keeps the blood flowing therefore makes you more alert)
-Listen to loud, stimulating music (although it might be distracting for studying)
-Wash your face often with very cold water
