How long does it take for you to get to sleep.

It seems to take me one or two hours, on bad days four hours.

Today I was tired, layed down at 5pm, got to sleep at 8pm, up at 1030.

about 2-5 minutes, although frequently I wake up about 3 hours later for no reason...then I fall asleep again.

I've wondered this also...unless I am just totally exhausted and dog-tired it usually takes around 45 min to 1 hr to fall asleep.

About 5% of the time it takes ~2hrs or more.

It is what it is.

2 hours, 1 hour if I'm dead tired

About half an hour - but I usually am pretty tired by the time I turn in.

I don't go to bed until I'm sleepy. Then I'm sawing logs within 5 minutes. Or so says my wife.

It is in direct correlation to how late I stay up reading these boards...

Usually 45 min to an hour, but if tired less than 10 minutes.

How do you know the damn time you fall asleep? If you look at the clock you're not ASLEEP, then you have to do it all over. I've always wondered this, I can tell people the time I go to bed, but I never have known the time I fell asleep.

But to answer the question...
Lately it takes me what I'll just say is "a long time" because I just finished a job working nights (4PM-2AM at least) and am trying to reverse my sleep schedule for when I go to Army basic next week, it's proving to be a pain in the ass.

Well sounds like Im not exactly normal with that then

Normally 15-20 minutes, then wake up at 4am with a raging asthma attack then pass out and sleep till 7am and head to work.

I've always heard if it takes you more than 20 minutes or so to go to sleep youre getting too much sleep. I have absolutely nothing to back this up, just something I've always been told. Me, it takes me between 5 and 10 minutes to go to sleep, depending on how late I stay up.

It can take me hours - and then I never get a good night's sleep because I keep waking up when I stop breathing

Two to four hours. I have a sleep disorder.

It depends when I go to bed. If I hit the sack early, before 1am, which is tremendously rare I fall out quick. The later I stay up the longer it takes me to fall asleep. If I go to bed by 4am it takes me 30 minutes to an hour. If I go to bed at 5am or later it takes me anywhere from 1 to 4 hours and sometimes not at all. Just something that happens as you start getting "older" in my experience. Your body is going to begin to require regualr hours for sleep. You may also want to darken your room.

I blacked it out pretty good, abit of light in, but the brightest thing in there is my night sites on the pistol

No less than an hour.

I have gone to bed after staying up 20+ hours and working out that day, and taken longer than 3 hours to fall asleep.

I also dont usually sleep more than 5 hours a night.

I don't know how much longer I can survive like this.
