    Anyone know of any tips to help get a good nights sleep? I take a 10mg Ambien every night. Most of the time I still have trouble falling asleep. On an average I sleep maybe 4 hours a night.

    Melatonin works for me for about two days. Same with Ambien. Lunesta was decent, but no generics and it cost me two hundred bucks - so fuck that. Diphenhydramine - hit or miss. Alcohol, but then I feel like shit the next day. 4 Nyquil packets, my go to now.

    Been a life long insomniac. It sucks.

    doing exercise in the day to be exhausted at night?
    changing jobs to be less stressed out?

    Do you drink a lot caffeine? Suffer from anxiety? Many many factors come into play, need more info.

    Obvious one a Stern show from 2008 on. But if youre not looking to put yourself into a deep month long coma, try a couple of shots of hard liquor before bed. That's what I do.

    Auto racing, like NASCAR, Indycar, F1, or Sports cars. The longer the race the better. The droning of the engines can be soothing.

    I have two great hypnosis apps that were free, and usually put me out within minutes, or I throw on BBC news on the radio, which is the most boring thing one can listen to at 2pm, usually gets me back to sleepy time....

    Usually I will exercise after work, eat dinner, take a diphenhydramine, and work on my dick. That seems to do it.

    Don't drink caffeine anymore but I do have some anxiety issues. Seems like when everybody else is going to sleep my mind and body starts to ramp up.

    Nothing will put you to sleep like hard days work.

    Yup, i figured, millions and millions of people suffer from anxiety. Unfortunately there is no blanket cure for everyone.

    I would highly recommend breathing exercises, and sound of nature, all can be had on youtube.

    Pills are a band aid, you need to do it without them
