    For the last several months I had some sleeping problem... lots of dreams, but couldn't sleep at night; would always wake up every hour or few hours and not be able to get any rest.

    I decided, to fix the problem, to push myself harder and force myself to be up early at the same time every day, and stay constantly busy up until 8 or 9 pm, then go in and get ready for bed... instead of staying up late working on stuff or whatever.

    Now, I can wake up, I'm sleeping for at least 5 or more hours in a row, and can fall asleep before midnight. My dreaming is moderate (normal).

    And I just realized, in 2 days, I'll be in a time zone the furthest off from here, meaning it's going to throw everything off again. :mad:

    Cpap machine..... Sounds like Sleep apnia (sorry if spelt wrong).

    I have one and works wonders. I can now get a good night sleep and have lots of energy in the morning.

    What is this cpap and how does it work? Maybe it would help me with my horrible sleeping habits.

    A 10:30 PM blowjob works perfect for me........:rotfl:

    Seriously though, avoid caffeine after 6 PM, and try to avoid eating too much at dinner. I also find that spending a couple of hours on a jackhammer during the day helps me sleep a lot better.

    A cpap is like an oxygen machine that forces air into your lungs (simplified explanation) My dad has been using one for about 5 years and it has made a HUGE difference for him.
