Mostly read or sometimes work out to make myself a little more tired. I usually try to wake my wife up too. I figure if I can't sleep why should she.

I have had this problem for probly over 10 years... I just found my little miracal drug. I will never go another night without it. I used to be more like Linds not being able to sleep i would lay there for hours tossing and turning then if i did get to sleep i would have realistic nightmare. Horrible horrible sleeping. Thank god that all changed. There are these pills called "melentonin" (sp) no not the melen in skin. You take them about a half hour before you go to bed. Having my problems sleeping for years i was highly skeptic that this little pill that you can buy at walgreens or walmart can help me sleep. But it works great 5 mins after i hit the bed i'm out. If you have problems take this pill for one week and you will notice a HUGE difference. I've been taking them for a few weeks now and i have noticed a change. Now i can't go to bed without taking one. If i don't then i know i'll be tossing and turning until i get up and take that pill.

I was a born insomniac. For longer than I can remember I haven't been able to sleep. I'm told that as young as two and three I would walk in to my parents room in the middle of the night and when they would ask why I wasn't sleeping, I would respond "I don't know how to sleep". LOL... I remember thinking there was some trick people weren't telling me about

My dad used to take them. I believe these pills are now banned in Canada?

Recently i filled up an application for 30 hours per day...simply insomnia, don't ever make it with me, because i get a few hours of sleep every day...there are so much to do every night...whenever i cannot sleep -even for those few hours- is because i am worring for one or more of my herps.
A few days ago when i get the CRB in poor condition from a guy, i was getting up every hour for peeking, just to see if she is alright.
I hate sleeping but it's something that must be done
The fear leads to death as the window to the courtyard...JUMP!

Whenever I try to meditate, you know clear your mind and all that stuff, concentrate on breathing, I find myself really tired, then if I try to stay awake, I get really really tired.......and just fall asleep....

Mouse I know its a stimulant I use it a few hours before Indica is the only option if you want to past out quick Sativa Keeps me up on a head high for a while and has a huge reverse effect on me sleeping

Bryce Masuk, I totally agree, smokeing a joint, or a couple hits from the bong tis the only thing that gets me to sleep.
Must be the shits out there... getting to choose from indeca to sativa, I'm gonna move to BC someday

I used to take a eep medication called Imovane, I would only have to take 1/2 of the small blue pill and 15 minutes later..zzzZZZ. They're highly addictive, so, I just take a Extra Strength Sleep Aid instead (All it is, is a powerful hit of antihistamine). That's a last resort if my reading (which I mentioned earlier) doesn't do the trick.
