    I have been sick for the past few days and I havent been sleeping right until last night. I took a few Tylenol PM and they knocked me right out. I slept most of today and now that its night time again I cant sleep.

    So my question to you is, when you cant sleep... what do you do to finally go to sleep?

    I drink a lot of booze.

    It's 2 am by me, so I think I can speak with the voice of experience.

    First, have a clean, comfortable bed. If you have been ill, the sheets might need changinng.

    Second, make sure the room temperature is comfortable.

    Third, take a nice warm shower and put on nice jammies (whatever)

    Fourth, milk and/or cheese help me sleep. I would not recommend alcohol because it might be hard to wake up.

    Fifth, put on some nice soothing music that makes you relax. I like smooth jazz.

    Sixth, put the cares of the day aside. You can pick them up again in the morning.

    (to avoid misssunderstanding) Those are not councels of course :
    ... I'm only answering the question about what "I" am doing

    First of I'm a very bad sleeper 3 to 7 hours generally and most often in two sequences, unless I'm very relaxed nor very tired but not too much tired or electric (but I can or I'm able to sleep at anytime during the day, when I feel that it is the moment or that I'm very bored ...)

    The best for me is to smoke pot (not weed in this case cause weed got my brain in fusion, it get's me more than awake but in the clouds when I haven't something serious to think about ... when pot just got me relaxed and very, very, very lazy and can get me falling assleep at any time).

    When I haven't any if there is alcool, it can help (but I'm not a fan, of that, unless it's a kind of sweet alcool, but then it become dangerous, so when I have sweet alcool here I find a way to share it quickly with anyone).

    For some reasons related to the past, I don't use pills (I've eat them all - 2 boxes of different pills !!! - Just because I really needed to sleep and could not get there - and the fireman and the docs thought that I wanted to kill myself - the thing is that it was not my intention AT ALL at least I honestly didn't think about getting there AT ALL), but exceptionnally I got some - but do not buy any, most of the time when I took pills it was because somebody gave me one or two.

    and to waiting to getting asleep, I just read whateverI want, listen to music, watch TV or get into litle housejob by little touches ...

    Masturbation works quite well. :)

    I don't suffer from insomnia much. If I do, I wake up earlier than I want. When it happens, I don't fight it. I get up, take a shower, read a book, post on the internet, whatever. When I do hit the sack again, I am ready to sleep. Or pester my honey.

    I usually sleep good. Every now and then however, I have trouble getting to sleep. What helps me is too think back to the past and remenisce over something in my past that I really enjoyed. I try to remember all the details and actually try to put myself back there. I usually fall asleep in minutes, actyally it seems like minutes, but I don't really know. I just fade off to sleep.
