what do you guys do when you can't sleep?

A question for other insomniacs out there: what do you do when you can't sleep? I'm running out of ideas, and being a bored insomniac is worse than being the normal kind. Thought I'd check to see if anyone has new ideas they'd like to share

Basically I lay in bed hoping and praying for sleep. My insomnia is a stange one. If I know I have no reason to wake up early then I sleep fine, but if I know I need to be up at a certain time then I will be lucky to sleep 2-3 hours. Often even less. I would like to get up and do something, but all that'll accomplish is me not even getting 2-3 hours!

My sister BF is kind of an insomniac. Well he hasnt been diagnosed one and he doesnt think he is one but he gets NO sleep at all, and i mean NOO sleep. He always tells me stories about things he does, like draw, drive around and just try to figure things out. He has become terribly smart and figures out everything, like magic tricks and stuff like that. He knows everything lol and he even figured out a way to beet a certain game at a casino but thats our little secret and it has nothing to do with card counting..MUAH HAHAHAHA lol

I play computer games when I can't sleep. I am much like Julie...when I have to get up early, I will try and try but get like NO sleep. If I dont have to get up, man, I am in bed for 14 hours.

Sniper, that won't help to sleep at all, it increases your oxygen flow in your system and energises you up.

If I play games when I can't sleep, I am up till 7 or 9 am playing counter-strike
lolol
so what I do is put some soft music on and just listen to it in the dark

Drawing... hey, there's something! I totally suck at it maybe I can learn how to actually do it without repetitive crumpling and cursing lol. Need a break from that proportional thermostat I've been designing anyways.

Julie, what worked for me for like a month or two was reading up on quantum mechanics on the net... you know, university papers and the like. Doesn't work for me any more, but when it did I could barely make it back into the sack in time

LOL!! So true!

I usually read the newspaper or watch some really boring t.v. show. Worst comes to worst, I listen to music in the dark or just stare at the ceiling in my room lol.

I am a CHRONIC insomniac. I usually read, but, there's the odd time that I go on here when I can't sleep.

stare into the red, blue, and black lights in the gecko room and your brain will suddenly love sleep.
