    He was talking about how he would never put a stimulant like coffee in his system, and Robin said he puts Ambien (which she knew was not a stimulant) in his system. He said he has had the same bottle of Ambien for 10 years, and only uses it for work purposes. For the fans! It must be a 500 count bottle.

    He said he has taken maybe 3 pills in 10 years. Ha! He talks about how he has taken Ambien the night before many, many times. He tries not to but always slips. And he drinks....a lot...he slips on that issue also.

    use isn't abuse. I have taken it maybe 5 times in my life. Didn't care for it. But as you get older chemicals change in your brain and you don't always feel sleepy. If you have to be up at 4am and it's still light outside and you are not 100% relaxed you are not going to get 8 hours w/o some help.

    I pretty much agree with your analysis, except that I find his lying about the ambien to be a sign of abuse. He obviously lies and goes on and on about how little he uses it, like someone else said. If you count the number of times he's slipped and mentioned taking it, it's way more than he admits to... and obviously he doesn't mention it every time.

    I am pretty sure he could get by with 4-6 hours sleep and still deliver the same content.

    I had that only once, when I was in the hospital with a fever so high they put me on an ice mattress. I guess they felt it would put me to sleep, but I lay there all night, with my ass freezing off, telling the nurses some really bizarre things. It was like I couldn't control my mouth, and the weird thing was, I was listening to myself as if I were a stranger telling a story.

    It's highly habit-forming.

    I got addicted to that shit in like 2 weeks. It was the wrong medication for me to be on. turns out my insomnia was related to my depression and ambien is not the right med for that.
