I'm logged in at 1:30 am because my dead tired ass can't sleep. I'm too excited about getting to the BRC. I'm supposed to be flying out of town at 7am, which with all the new airline regs, means I have to get up at 4. That leaves me with just two hours to sleep... that'll just piss me off, so I'm staying up. How do you guys handle insomnia?

I sleep with the radio turned on just enough to hear it. The radio seems to help me relax and take my mind off things I have to do the next day. I have never been a deep sleeper since Nam.

What shitty sleep that must've been! I can't imagine trying to sleep in a combat zone.

On warm nights I'll take the motorcycle for a ride, on cool nights I'll take the car. There is nothing like driving at night, few people on the road, and the world has a whole different personality.

I used to battle insomnia a lot, and many times there just wasn't anything that seemed to work. I eventually found though that running a fan in your bedroom really can help. Not a ceiling fan, but just a small room fan. That drone that it makes is pretty good. Mike

I like the "horizontal bop". I usually just roll over and fall asleep. Works every time.

I am an insomniac, can't ever fall asleep and wake up at the slightest noise. It's at least 3-4:00AM before I drift off. To aid this, I put on the most boring tv show or documentary I can find, it helps. Or, I'll just not go to sleep at all to burn myself out, then I'll sleep fine the next night.

I've been having trouble sleeping too. Mostly due to mild depression and a sense of not accompishing anything. What help me are Fans. I also like the sound of rain as it pounds on the roof. There is something serene about that.-especially metal roofs like on sheds and car ports. On really bad nights/mornings i will get out of bed and do push-ups and flutter kicks, then try to stay awake. Fantasizing about having sex with a beautiful women helps too. my body will find a way to betray me by having me fall alseep before the next step[:)] Unfortuanely during the day there are sunbeams. A good sunbeam will put you out in no time!!! lib

Sex, and if that doesn't work, Nyquil. I use a half dose of Nyquil.

If you lie awake for more then 20 minutes in one spot your mind will associate your surroundings with sleeplessness. I will surf or watch late night TV for a bit, too disassociate. I will try to sleep on the the couch too in different surroundings; this may be helpful when I find a good chick to marry.[:D]

If I can't sleep, I go home and do something productive! [:D]

If I can't sleep. I drink a glass of wine. Pop in a porn tape. Well you know the rest.....[;)] I am single after all.

[b]UNFORTUNATELY[/b] I won't be having that problem. [:(] Sounds like me the night before a hunt - I can't sleep for shit. Like others, I try "spanking willy". As for FatMan's "horizontal bop", if he's talking about a "true" bop, then he must have a very understanding woman. I can just see my wife's reaction - 0100 - night before a hunt - I wake my wife - "honey, I can't sleep - can you just slip your panties off and...". My wife - "SHUT UP AND LEAVE ME ALONE" [BD] Reading seems to help at times. tatjana's idea sounds good - maybe give it a whirl.

... Who has time to sleep? ... You'll get plenty of sleep when you die! ... I'm serious, I sleep 4 hours a day Monday through Thursday nights. Conditioning and a mid-day 15 minute power nap is the answer.

well, not being able to sleep in this miserable heat (and summer ain't here yet!) [rolleyes] I found myself here at 04:00 (O'darkthirty) realizing how pathetic my life is... lol [;)]

Masturbation works for me! If not, then I just turn on the TV until I pass out.
