    My body has FINALLY starting to adjust to my lack of sleep. I average about 3 hours a night and go on that for weeks at a time.

    My life has become such that I basically don't have time for sleep. between having a full time job that consumes like 70% of my time, having a bf to attend to, also other friends and school, I really have no time for sleep. .

    I wish there was a way to take a pill that would be like taking 8 hours of sleep.
    I just wonder how much longer I can keep this pace up. .

    My alarm clock is my worst enemy, but once im up and have my coffee and good to go. . I've literally pulled like 3 all-nighters in the past 10 days. .

    So, how many hours of sleep do u usually get a night?

    It's not good for your heart to not get sleep. How about making time with your friends, in your bed? Like, hey, sure, we can hang out. But we have to cuddle in bed for 5 of those hours.

    Consider consulting a physician. It's not healthy or normal for a 26 year old man to be having sleep issues.

    In the mean time, consider examining any lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your inability to sleep a normal period of time at a regularly occurring time of day:

    Work/Study stress
    Failure to practice "sleep hygiene" before bedtime
    Stimulant usage
    Environmental factors (i.e. noise, light, temperature)
    Time of day you are working out or exercising
    Daily routine

    Aloha and Be Well!

    With my busy work scheduale this season, I've been averging 4 hours a night. Its not that I don't have the time to sleep, its just that I'm so keyed into my projects (and excited about them) that I can't turn my mind off.

    And since I'm so energized from thoughts I have more energy to socialize. So when I go to sleep I can't turn off. And my sex drive has gone into overdrive.

    Sleeping pills are a waste of time and don't work so why bother taking them anyway.

    Once the work crunch subsides in a few weeks I plan to make a real effort to get at least 7 hours a night. I hope.

    I keep waiting for people to tell me I look tired, but I don't look tired.

    I'm afraid one night I will fall asleep and my body will need so much sleep that I will never wake upicon_confused.gif

    I had problems with sleep for a long time. Didn't really recognise it though, just thought I was stressed.

    Got to the point when people tell me they were suprised to see me without red eyes (if I had actually slept) but mostly they say I look tired. Not real good.

    I spent a few k on a decent mattress, latex pillows, and a heap of other stuff and sleep like a baby now.

    But it's forcing myself to try go to sleep before 11pm to be up by 5. You have to do it.

    It will catch up with you. For me- high stress, no sleep, 24/7 lifestyle = stomach ulcer. Caught in time luckily to just need pills. Was going on for over 18 months.

    This is why I am in MIami now to unwind icon_smile.gif

    Investing in a good mattress, pillows and sheets is SO worth it. That money is well spent.

    My friend Peter called me and invited me to spend the weekend at his house in Woodstock. Hopefully, this will break my sleep deprevation cycle.

    So I hope you unwind and relax and have fun in Miami mate.

    Thanks KissingPro, real sweet.

    And you are right, having a haven for sleep (the expense gone to with the manchester) is 100% worth it.

    Being able to get a deep, luxurious, restful sleep is now a priority for me, at least 5 nights a week. It seriously does cure most things icon_razz.gif Have a great trip!

    Same here, usually between 5-6 hours. about every 6 weeks, my body just demands more, and I'll sleep 10-11 hours. But usually only 1 night, and then I'm "good" for another 6 weeks.

    It is said that Napoleon only slept 4 hours a night -- perhaps a mark of future greatness?

    In the 1959 movie Journey to the Center of the Earth, the villain Count Saknussemm said:

    "You've come to ask me why I didn't rest? I don't sleep. I hate those little slices of death."

    Yet science now says that sleep extends life, and promotes good health. I would recommend consulting with a health professional about experiencing inadequate sleep.

    Yeah, Lack of sleep is no bueno and will catch up to. Seraquil took my sleeping problems away but that's because my insomnia was usually in my head. (Im a very creative thinker). =)

    Don't they have like hyperbaric Chambers or something that allow your brain and body to feel like you have had more sleep on less time?
