    Default How do you sleep?

    I go through bouts of insomnia. Last month I couldn’t sleep for three days. Finally passed and I’m doing better but lack of sleep is a mofo. I hope you are all sleeping well

    Never ever slept well, if I get up at 4am I know I will not be able to get back to sleep.

    It does eventually catch up with you and you do get 1 good night sleep.

    The way to get a good night sleep is to get up early and work out physically hard with no naps throughout the day.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I sleep really poorly , hence why I look like an old bastard.

    Have very detailed dreams. Most of the time I know I'm dreaming and it screws it up but I get to see people who are no longer here. Physically I sleep like a rock, save for when my cat puts her hairy arse in my face trying to get comfortable. If no fan is running there is no sleeping.

    Do you have the ability to remove yourself from a dream if you don't like what's going on?

    Doesn't happen all the time... but I swear I've had dreams where it starts out I'm the main character and then all of a sudden I'm just a third-party observer. Probably saying..... poor dude!

    I sleep really well, still look like an old bastard.

    If Julian Jackson ever hit Amir Khan, thats how fast I fall asleep.

    Apparently sleep is all mental. You 'could' physically recover from your days endeavours by lying still, no need to actually go to sleep at all. When you sleep, you filter all of your thoughts for the day, delete some and save some to memory. Again I'm not sure about that. If that were the case I'd need about 90 seconds of sleep per day.
    When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough

    Basically sort of remind myself I'm dreaming but always from own pov. Was at Harrah's and hit a 5k pot..then literally told myself dude..it's a dream. Talk about self sabotage . Tons of flashback dreaming this year, family and places lived but thankfully not some nightmare shat. Still though doesn't seem 'healthy' the mind looking 'back' so much but experiences and subconscious mind stay on 24-7 I suppose.

    Yup. I had that before. Are you under stress? Is the bedroom hot? Is your bed in good condition? All of these things plus what you may be eating could be a result of your insomnia.

    Try this, don't eat anything for 3 hours before bed and ONLY cold water or a refreshing cup of tea. Turn off all of the sounds and television and keep your handset/cellular phone far away from you and turn it off if you have to.

    Nowadays the glare when we pick up our cellular phone, even if only for a bit, disturbs our mind and keeps us up and turns our brains on when we should be giving our body and brain rest.

    Also, sleep flat on your back and try to fall asleep like that. No sleeping pills, booze or drugs... Just try to fall asleep the natural way.

    Hope any of this helps!

    Booze made it really easy to sleep plenty for a long time. Quitting when you've been going hard makes it hellish trying for quite a while, but when you do finally sleep the dreams are off the hook. A while back I had such vivid dreams I couldn't believe they hadn't actually happened. Remember wading through a lake in some exotic paradise with a harem of women, petting what looked like giant bird-like dinosaurs and taking tonnes of pictures on my phone, then woke up suddenly and ran to the other room where my phone was charging to look at them, and I started crying when I realized they weren't on there, fucking batshit. There is a supplement called ZMA I used to take which also did seem to really help me fall asleep and produce vivid dreams , couldn't find it anywhere recently so ordered a bunch online. Strenuous exercise earlier in the day is also a pretty good insurance you'll sleep better than otherwise.

    I give it up all the time, sometimes for like a whole week. If you and Miles Had the intention of meeting me at the same time perhaps I could finally bring myself to go on the bender that truly ends me. More likely I then wouldnt have enough peace to go out that way and a double murder suicide would be on the cards.
