what do you do?

other than take tylenol pm or nyquil cause thats really obvious...

i would take like 2 more tylenol pm every night and then stop at like 12, wait a few weeks and start again... i wouldnt be suprised if it kills me someday...
but the effects are weird, i get really creative and if i fight sleep i get really interesting results musically but i have such a hard time remembering everything...

anyways, so what do you do when you just can't sleep??

I stay awake.

Seriously... I'll read, watch a movie, whatever... I'll have a shitty sleep that night, but the next night it's lights out.

Haha, i just got up from not being able to sleep.
But, I'll just lay in bed and think about the stuff that annoys me or ticks me off. Personally thats apathetic people.
What helps is to drink hot chocolate milk an hour or so before you plan on going to sleep.

I just turn on the TV and sit there pissed about how I can't go to sleep.

Then I'll just think about things that piss me off, and I can't go to sleep even more.

I find that the best way to fall asleep is to stay up doing something till your so damn tired you just finally fall asleep, but I guess thats pretty obvious

Well, I can usually sleep at my house, if I dont, I get a glass of milk, and it usually knocks me out. But at like a friends house, I wait it out. At this thing called 'Outdoor School' where my school went to this place in the wilderness for about a week, I didn't sleep at all, because if you didn't fall asleep before the air conditioning went on, you weren't going to get asleep, I never beat it.

it takes me one or two hours to fall asleep every night, so i just lay there and think and i fall asleep eventually.
#13
I just kinda lay there, or put on some music, usually softer music.

Some of my faves for this is the "Lilium" with the female singers from the anime Elfen Lied. It's so damn soothing.

That, or Enya, that ONE song that she's most known for. I love that song for some reason. And Nubuo Uematsu's work is just amazing, and soothing as shit.

That, or I play guitar until I get sleepy.

I play the same song over and over again on my acoustic while in my bed. Eventually, I'll fall asleep, acoustic in hand.

I tend to just watch movies online, or listen to music, and stay on forums.

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Do you any of you guys ever get that deal where you're trying to sleep, and the whole time you're thinking, "well if I all asleep now, that's x hours of sleep...," and then, you never get to sleep.

I read. Whatever book I'm reading at the time will usually do. Or, if it's on hand, "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte will cure ANY case of insomnia.

EDIT: I also like to contemplate infinity, God, the universe, that sort of thing.

Watch TV or work on a new riff, or just play guitar for a few hours.

This may just be me, but, after you wank, do you get the munchies? I do and it sucks, cause then I'm hungry, but I do fall asleep.
#37
If I can't sleep I'm usually on the internet. It used to be that I would read or write. Damn internet. It really is an addiction of sorts. As far as how I try to get into a sleepy mode...I don't know. I just keep doing whatever activity it is until I'm dead tired I guess.
