    What do I have around the house to help me get to sleep? I was exhausted at 8:00, so I went to bed. I laid there for 3 hours with my mind racing, and finally got up for an hour. What will make me sleep, barring alcohol?



    I think it's just CK5... :thinking:

    A few...

    Warm Milk is supposed to be good..I know drinking Coffee at 2 Am isn't good idea if you planned on sleeping soon after!(though I have sometimes drank one and fallen asleep with the cup in my hand still!)..

    A cup of Tea might help too,especially if its an herbal tea like
    "sweet dreams"...I forget the name of the other stuff.."Chamile" or something like that..

    You could dig up a few of my long,ranty posts--that will make you yawn,and probably bore you too sleep!...:rolleyes: :haha:

    Only sure fire home remedy I know is high proof liquor,(not beer--have to get up to pee and it ruins your sleep!)--
    or another illegal (in most states) sometimes "home grown" herb..always knocks ME out if I imbibe in either!..;) ..nighty-night!..

    ^ What he said :D

    Also on days I ride my bike (as in pedal bike) to work I usually sleep better, so excersice earlier in the day is good. Don't excersice right before bed though (unless it's sex) otherwise it's harder to fall asleep.

    I can also send you some recordings of my Dad saying grace at Thanksgiving. Usually lasts about an hour and I'm in dreamland half way through.........
