move to a different part of your house and try to sleep there.

picture yourself in some sort of countdown (walking down flights of stairs in a building, I used to think about falling through panes of glass)

something to make you drowsy

Man, I don't know how you have sex, but with me, when I'm having sex, sleep is DEFINITELY NOT involved in the equation!

NyQuil knocks me out faster than slamming back 10 beers. Plus no hangover, what's not to like!

4 extra stength Dristan, and a couple glasses of scotch and I'm out like a light every time.

I suffer from insomnia during the summer when it's hot at night, this time of year it starts to get better. Sometimes I just say screw it and I go out the garage and play with shit until it's time to get ready for work in the morning, once I get to work and get going I'm usually OK for the rest of the day. A couple day's of that in a row starts to hurt though.

I'm with Max Boost. I like to get at least 8 hours of sleep except it never happens. 30 hours is probably my max for staying awake. And at that point driving is damn dangerous. You don't want to be on the road when I'm tired...

Ben
12-04-2003, 12:02 PM
Well my past record for staying awake was 84 hours...that was BAD! Come the end of that, people talking to me on MSN didn't recieve much cohearance...Slept for a good 17 hours afterwards tho, and been good since.

I get this every now and again where I just dont feel like sleeping. Then when you do, you cant (at work, out someplace) and then when you get home again, you dont feel like it.

Generally there is a threshold to break...for me its around 30-36 hours. 18-30 hours you get super tired, but once you pass that then its almost easy again for a day or so. Then after that you're messed up.

I'm at 32 hours right now, and about 3 hours ago I was screwed, nodding off at my desk and such, and now I'm wide awake again.

Meh, it happens.

There blue but there actually not for colds, it is just the ingredient in cold medication that puts you to sleep. so maybe it would help a cold then?:nut:

Make sure you smoke it atleast an hour before you goto bed though, so you get it at the burn out.

Otherwise you'll sit in bed with a smile and eyes wide open!

I'm an insomniac too, have been all my life, time of year doesn't matter, it usually takes me b/w 1.5 and 3 hours to fall asleep, which sucks on school nights... last night I tried going to bed at 1, I think I managed at about 2:15 or so and woke up at 12, finally got to catch up on some sleep.

Go to your doctor and ask about getting a prescription for "Starnoc"

00redLUDE
02-10-2004, 01:06 AM
Starnoc is the new medication for insomnia. It is very expensive since it just came out onto the market not too long ago. If you don't have a drug plan you would have to pay quite a bit. However, because it is very new your doctor might have some samples in his/her office, you could ask. If no drug plan and you're desperate you could try 'Imovane' which is similar to starnoc but has been out a bit longer than starnoc so it would not be as expensive.

NOTE!! These two medications are NOT for long term use. You should only use it only when you really need it. It is not a daily medication. If fact, I would recommend that you do not use any of the two because if you do have an insomnia problem it would be very easy for you to become use to using the pill to help you sleep which can lead to a dependence on it.
