I'm literally drinking milk. Sugary chocolate milk.
Whatever helps to get me asleep.

Can't ser how that'll get you sleeping if it has sugar in. I guesd it may do if you've only a little sugar or maybe your body is at a stage it's ready fot sleep n you'll sleep.

Warm milk honey.

Try that next time you want sleep is my advive. Homey is natural n good for the body. Milk is filling, heavy..,....the warmth of it will aid sleep. Plese try it if you've not already n let me know how that goes. Shame for anyome strugglimg with sleep.

Warning long post

I've never had an issue with sleep in my life bar the old night now n then where I end of tossing n turning but we've all had that. A famous, German, psychologists says never try to force sleep. He's right though---you can't n WONT succeed. Think about it---before a person drifts off into the land of nod they are relaxed, they're body is relaxed n their mind is relaxed. By "concentrating" on ways in which to bring on sleep you making your mind work----making it active, so your bodu is going to STAY AWAKE not sleep. it dorsn't matter how maby times you press the up-volume for the TV it will never mute the TV; the wrong buttoss are pressed.

If a person struggles with sleep on a contintualled basis thee is somthing that obviously needs addressing, focused n changed. These things can affect sleep

- Too much exercise or exercising during the end of the day, not limited to, but specifically cardiovascula - exercise the speeds up the heart ie running.
- keekig the mind activr in the evening, tbere needs to be a "winding period"
- stimulanting drinks such as caffeine based coffee or energy drinks, in the evening. My theory is that too many stimulant drinks throughout the day can affect the heart n affect sleep. I believe this washappening to someonr I worked witn but didn't her as she wa one evil, manipulative bitch who conspired to try nget me sackef until i played her at her owngame of maipulation, I wasn't putting up with that again having beenvictim to it before).
- stress n worry. These are big obsticles towars sleep because the mind has become active playing over n over, in the head, whatever the particular stress or worry is. Sleep usually can't be fully achieved until the issue has been tackled n so people may manage broken sleep at most.

Its important to not focus om a sleep problem n make it an issue by doing so you've changed---what should ne a natural, relaxing n enjoyable process into a "chore that needs completing---i must fall asleep." By doing so you've set yourself a huge obsticle n sleep won't happen[\b]. You need your body n mind to work witj you n not against you n this is a huge burdle for people dealing with sleep issues / insomnia because we are "little scientists / cognitive misers" our minds automaricallg want to find solutios to problems n thus we automaticaly try apply our natural technique to sleeps issues n then the hair is pulled out of the skull as our plans backfire on us; actually asking ourselves why this is so when it's common sense if we sit down n take a few minutes to ponder it n it dawns onus thar we simply do the opposite of what we have been conditinef / programmed to do our whoe, entire lives. We:-

- Stop trying to solve the issue, stop making it an issue
- Stop figting it
- find ways to relax the mind; chillout music, warm bath, quiet time. As litte cognitive activity as possible
- When in bed simpy lie down n relax as opposed to thinking about sleep. Sleep shouldn't enter into the thougt-process at all. Just relax your body n mind n without thinking abot it you'll have dropped off to sleep n some hours will have passed

That's not shit Evey, that is fuckin spot on! Stressing about not going to sleep just fills your body with cortisone, which just increases the anxiety. Took me years to work this out, but now if I'm on stims and can't sleep, I just ensure I get a good 30 minutes of eyes closed relaxation. That really does the trick.

Finding new lows.
I just masturbate - stims is stims.

I'm hungover so much I would hold up a Starbucks if I could get my eyes to stop streaming.

As part of my new years resolution to drink more fine wine i thought i'd start with this beauty. One of Australia's best chardonnays. Sublime stuff indeed.

I'm 'aff it' for a wee while I think, I didn't even drink much over the holiday there, was pished Xmas day and that was about it. I just can't be arsed at the minute, I was always up for a drink, my group of friends are heavy drinkers... dunno what is wrong with me!! Usually I'm just kidding myself on (and everyone else around me) at this time of year about taking it easy, but this time I mean it.

Got a Russian Standard copper mug set for Christmas so decided to make a Moscow Mule. Pretty nice, is ginger beer, lime and vodka. Not hugely up for drinking tonight though, so water now.

I'd not sleep for days on that amount of caffeine. I do 2 cuppas Scottish blend tea first thing then jasmine green tea during the day. My youngest bought me this alo Vera drink for my *cough* wellbeing, it's rank and has globules like spunk in it.... ewwww.

Enjoying a bedtime Aldo special balleycastle much better than baillies because you can actually taste the booze in it. Cheap as chips too. Needs ice though. And a pretty glass btw ;-)

It's a school night so one large is enough :-(

Aye, I drink caffeine these days but two cups a day is my max and none after like 3pm ha. Aloe vera drinks are upsetting. Similarly I bought some sort of peanut-based drink from the local corner shop once and oh god it tasted and felt like the contents of an old ashtray
