    listening to nice music while in bed usually does the trick. something like evanescence or tool or a perfect circle. something nice and groovey that doesnt scream u awake
     
  8. whatever you do, don't toss and turn in your bed with the lights off, until you kick your blankets off your bed, and then be really mad because you've got to go to work the next day at 6 AM...it didn't work for me last night...

    I've also found that crashing else where besides the bed can help... take a hike to the couch.

    There is a supplement I use every so often to get my sleep cycle to where it should be. Melatonin is what it's called. It works very well for me. In fact, I will be using some tonight, because I am being late to work, and that's not good when I want a raise.

    Ah yes...I use a supplement to sleep as well. Tequila is what it's called.

    That's what you wash it down with...
     
  14. If you've got a partner ( wife or g/f ) wake her up and sing her a chorus of the motown hit " Lets get it on " :hyper:

    This is the way I get to sleep sometimes... but it's also how I get my exercise.
     
  16. Take some Benadryl. Wham!! You'll be out inside of 15 minutes.

    Or, and I know this is disgusting, but a chemical is released inside the male brain that causes drowsiness after an orgasm. How you get that is YOUR problem, and we really don't want to hear about it.:D

    Rock on

  17. I'll second this! It's also great when winter makes your skin all dry and itchy- I'm not awake scratching all night.

    Before I figured out about the Benadryl Allergy tablets thing I'd just go out on the porch and chain smoke.

    Best of luck getting to sleep, brotherr.

    A little NyQuil never hurt anyone. Unfortunately, I always trip balls whenever I take it before I sleep - seriously, hallucinogenic dreams.

    Next time your in a drug store take a look at the over-the-counter sleeping pills...they have the exact same active ingredient as Benadryl.

    But cost more!! That's right for the price of one box of 40 sleeping pills you can get 2, count them, 2 bottles of 100 diphenhydramine tablets!!

    ::crowd goes "OOO!!::
