I've been having trouble sleeping recently, and I dislike it.

I've been going to bed fairly early 12:00 or 1:00.. but I lay in bed and can't really sleep until around 5-ish, then at 9:00 i wake up because that's what time my alarm is set for.. So, I would like to get a little more sleep.

I've decided to cut back on caffeine, and see if that helps. Is there anything the pit can suggest?
sup?

I have the same problem dude. Try not sleeping tonight and stay awake for the whole day and go to bed early tomorrow night.

EDIT: Also exercise every day to drain some energy.

this usually gets me right to sleep

onto the serious answer: don't eat things before you go to bed. you will NOT fall asleep if you're still digesting stuff. maybe read a little before bed. probably dont wanna watch that video if you plan on sleeping NOW though.

Carbs. Apparently they have a relaxing effect on the body.

I read it in the health and nutrition thread.

Also, get off UG and exercise.

FAP, of course,

and benadryl. Works like a charm.

BlackEDIT:blindfatkid23 has a stressful argument, however I do use this technique from time to time.

I am a diagnosed insomniac, but the technique, (called the binge method) isn't really that healthy. I don't personally recommend it

Why don't you drink some alcohol. It's too late to buy any, so get some of that cleaning alcohol. Or some mouthwash. And drink it. Do it.

But seriously, alcohol relaxes and everything, but don't use it as a crutch. (AA helped with that statement)

I sleep like a baby when drunk.

Go, Hypno!



but seriously, exercise is probably your best bet. i know its really gay, but it can help you sleep.

aside from that, benadryl and alcohol work. i wouldnt suggest recreationaly taking benadryl for the hallucinations, its not worth it. even though hallucinations are pretty cool, it makes you feel terrible.

alcoholism it is! it beats the **** out of exercise.

Like someone said, stay up all night. Go to bed at a normal time to give you about 8-9 hours of sleep or so, and possibly read a bit before bed. It'll help.

It isn't alcoholism if we're all here while he does it. Then it's social drinking.

Is this why people are voting me for Troll in the awards thread? I'm not trolling. This is legit advice.

I think you'd be up for more of a Sarcasm Award.

You don't seem a troll, but a comedian of advice.

The reason for you not sleeping is probably something that has to do with your life. Get that sorted out if possible, or just accept it for what it is. Just try to relax some hours before going to sleep, dim the lights a bit, read a book or something. When you go to bed, it should NOT be "because you have to", but because you truly feel sleepy.

Don't eat before sleep, read. Don't drink coffee ( or any caffeinated drink ) before you sleep.

Wake up REAL EARLY one day. Do some exersize. Dont eat before bed.
Ive had insomnia my whole life. I can never just fall asleep. I always have to lie there for like 2-3 hours before I pass out.

Since I started playing guitar, everytime I count sheep to fall asleep I cant get past 4. I just go 1,2,3,4 and repeat the whole time.

No, if anything, he'll have to wash the stank from him to get to sleep.

It's fairly obvious now.
