I can't get no sleep
    #11207492 - 10/08/09 02:16 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

Well, I can get ~2.5hours most nights before I wake up and am unable to sleep again for another 5 hours or so.

This week I've probably slept a total of 8hours, when I would have typically slept for around 24 hours by now.

The only time I can actually stay asleep is if I do some kind of drug or if I stay awake until I physically can't any longer. I might add that this is my first week actually sober in quite a long time.

Got any suggestions? I've been getting plenty of exercise, been cycling around ~5miles a day (just got in from a 10mile ride) and I'm eating relatively healthily.

I'm so tired right now, but I just can't sleep =/.

I have the same problem. I have come to realize sleep is irrelevant. Yes i am sleepy all day long, but that is what gensing, caffeine, and camel snus is for.

I am a big fan of 20 minute naps.

When i really need to sleep i get really drunk and pass out. Oh, or take NyQuil.

Yeah I've resorted to mixing alcohol and dropping a couple of 2mg xannies and waking up in a gutter 14 hours later a few times now :lol:.

I mean the last time I got a decent nights sleep was on sunday and thats only cause I stayed up all night getting drunk, eating mephedrone and munching xannies.

I'm so tempted just to eat some xanax so that I can stay asleep, but I really would like to be sober cause that shit is eating a whole in my brain. In fact I've only noticed sleeping problems since I started habitually munching benzos 3-4 weeks back =/.

When i am really tired and can't sleep i smoke a bowl. You would think this would put me to sleep, but it actually makes the sleepyness go away and all i wana do is stay awake. Is that weird?

Nah same happpens to me, weed makes my mind race.. If I shut my eyes and roll with it, its actually similar to what happens when you do the same on acid, although much less intense.
