Generally, someone needs to hit me with a 2x4 to fall asleep.

It's a chore each night to turn my brain off.

Then, of course, I have a friend who can fall asleep within 30 seconds of his head hitting the pillow!

WTF?

Always takes me forever to fall asleep...it seems like my brain comes up with all the great ideas at night...might be strange, but I have a tablet of paper by my bed.

The wife on the other hand is asleep in seconds...

From what little I know about you Patrick from reading the forums over the last few years you sound like a guy with a lot on his plate. If that's the case then that's probably the reason you have a hard time sleeping. I know when I have too much going on I spend about an hour or 2 "thinking". When things get back to normal again I can fall asleep usually within 15 min.

If that's not the problem then I recommend a lil' smokie smokie. :laughing: :laughing:

If Im not really tired but I know I should be going to bed, it can take me an hour to fall asleep but when Im tired I can just pass out anywhere.

DITTO, I have to be tired. I just can't go to bed because it's bedtime or getting late.

I have a horrible time falling asleep every night. I probably would have got hooked on sleeping pills, but they stopped working for me :(

I would have posted sooner, but I fell asleep. :laughing:
Seriously tho, I drive a 130 miles round trip to work each day. By the time I go to bed, sleeping is no problem. :)

And I though I was the only one with that problem!

I usually don't go to bed no matter what time it is until I feel sleepy. Makes it a lot easier to go to sleep but also a lot harder to get up.:laughing:

There are a few techniques one can use to fall off to sleep but it takes a little practice. Tonight , of course, I keep having pictures of a black C5 pop into my head.

The mind can only concentrate on one thing at a time. It does multitask but does not multiprocess.
I usually lay flat on my back and concentrate on relaxing muscle groups throughout the body. The next thing I know I am waking up.
My sleep patterns are strange so I take advantage of "quiet times" for really restfull sleep periods.

You need to learn to cast aside the temporal bullshit when its time to sleep. Don't worry about it then, it will still be there when you awaken.

If that doesn't work try Scotch. :)

Damn, what time is it anyway?

Sometimes I'm like you and can't fall asleep. I know that if I've gotten physical exercise durring the day I will sleep better at night. Also, when I have insomnia a quick romp with the spouse helps relieve stress and fall asleep quicker.
