I can't sleep. Every night is the same fucking shit, I lie down and just lie there eyes wide open awake for hours. Its certainly affecting my gains. How do I sleep
>>
>>35940980
I'm dealing with the same shit. Stay up till 3, 4, sometimes 5 laying in bed. Weed helps. I'd love more advice too, though.
>>
Phenibut
>>
you have a few options:
1. intense cardio before bed (fuck that)
2. take melatonin
3. take allergy medication
4. drink alcohol.
5. any combination of 2, 3, and 4

avoid opiates at all costs
>>
>>35941056
#2 did it for me. it's pretty cheap too, like 100 pills for $10
>>
>>35940980
Some things you could try
Melatonin 3mg 1 hour before bed
Valerian 200-400mg 1 hour before bed

And following medication only use sparingly cause the effect will wear out and you will get addicted if you use it too often, so 1 day per week maximum:
Dph 25mg
Alprazolam 1mg
Phenibut 500mg-1.5g
Don't use all together pick one, melatonin you van take everyday without problems. Valeria should only be taken for a few weeks at most before taking a break from it. Personally I love to take phenibut once weekly and have a great sleep that night. But gotta be careful cause the temptation to take it everyday is really strong, so only buy it if you don't get addicted easily.

Ya'll niggas work? Nothing makes it easier to sleep than working a full shift mon-fri. Also raw eggs blended with OJ or a smoothie before bed knocks me out and gives me fat morning wood.
>>
>>35940980
psychological problems are the biggest cause for that shite

only true way I found to be able to sleep is either
1. stop giving a shit
2. finding a solution to your problems
>>
>>35941137
The first time I had this insomnia was when I had mania aka literally not giving a fuck
>>
I had the same problem,worrying every night that i won't get enough sleep,which made it even harder for me to fall asleep.
Just stop caring,and after a week you'll fall asleep easier.At least it worked for me.
>>
>>35940980
Only use your room for sleep and sex. Take out the computer, tv and phone. Dont use technology for 30 mins before bedtime - wind down with a shower or read a book or get your bag/clothes ready for tomorrow
>>
Do you drink coffee, OP?

If so what affect does it have on you? If not give it a try. For some people (ADHD people especially) stimulants calm the mind down and allow them to sleep.

Not him but it's true. Google it.
>>
>>35941510
Adderral is a stimulant dummy
>>
Would sleep meds fuck you up? How would it affect workouts? Surely it must be better than barely getting any sleep at all.

I'm thinking of getting a prescription for sleep medication.
>>
>>35941553
Idk. If you're thinking about getting a prescription, why don't you write down some questions to ask your doctor?
>>
>>35941510
>>For some people (ADHD people especially) stimulants calm the mind down and allow them to sleep
From what i heard they wear you out from being so hyper that you become tired.
I have depression so the medication i take knocks me out. I've had trouble sleeping my entire life up until the depression.
>>
Magnesium malate supplements. Take it on an empty stomach before bed.
>>
>>35940980
MELATONIN

You can get it very cheap on Amazon. I get the Natrol 10mg 60 pill bottles off of there. Take it 30 minutes before bed and make sure to let it dissolve under your tongue out in your cheek for fastest results.

Its non habit forming and doesn't cause drowsiness upon reawakening, unlike opiates or stuff like Nyquil/Zquil
>>
>>35940980

Melatonin and some Gilligan's Faust and try and stay on schedule. Hard with literally every job demanding retarded shifts these days.
>>
>>35940980
Melatonin and Valerian and magnesium
This is assuming your sleep hygine is good
>>
>>35941510
The only way I ever slept when I was hooked on heroin was after chugging a can or more of Red Bull. It was weird.

Computer/phone screens are what does it. The light from them tricks your brain into thinking it's daytime, so it stays in "awake" mode.

Force yourself to not look at a single screen for at least a few hours before bed time. I got myself into an awesome sleep schedule for a couple weeks by doing this. I would come home from work, do a couple of mundane chores such as taking out the trash or doing the dishes, then eat, take a shower, and go straight to bed. I would then fall asleep easily, sleep for 8 hours, and wake up at a decent time.

Could have kept it up too, but I'm addicted to my computer so temptation got to me eventually.

>>35941678
No blue light before bed, no caffeine after noon etc
>>
>>35941702

Never heard that term before.

You should get one of these Brazilian light bulbs. Can set them to never be blue past morn.

I am having some serious problems with this
I am in Australia, we are having a massive heat wave at the moment (40 degrees Celsius) so i can only go to the gym early in the morning (5 am or so) as i have to walk
Last night i went to bed at 8pm, didn't sleep till 12 and then only for an hour, spent the next 4 hours in bed but i figured i was fucked and just got out of bed, haven't been to the gym for a week and i don't know what to do
>>
>>35941752
i'm in the same boat lad, not much to do other than pump whatever coffee/preworkout you have before gym so you don't die
>>

raising blood pressure before bed
enjoy not sleeping faggot

fappingbefore bed can keep you awake aswell
>>
I find having something to distract me while I'm sleeping helps. Usually I'll listen to an audiobook or someone streaming on twitch
>>
>>35941510
LOL

I had adhd and took meds while in school... they lasted about 4-6 hours, but if I took it 8 hours before I slept I could not sleep. It calms your mind down from a thinking about a lot of random shit point of view, but it also puts your mind at a steady "I'm awake and ready let's do shit" pace.
>>
>>35940980
you aren't exhausting yourself enough and you're probably playing video games and looking at your phone before bed. no electronics 2 hours before bed.
>>
power wank......4 cans of redbull the vigorous masturbation. the red bull wakes u up but after a nasty aggressive wank the dopamine should knock u out.
>>
>>35943126
RIP heart

Suffer from pretty annoying tinnitus myself, good thing I'm also a fast sleeper which makes it pretty funny, as I get extremely pissed off about it for five minutes or so before I just pass out.
>>
>>35941088

>knocks me out
What the fuck? Why? What in the hell possessed you to combine these things and why is the result sleepiness? What is the science?

If you're on your computer late at night it fucks with your eyes download f.lux

Jerking off just wakes me up more.

Cutting caffeine was a major improvement to my sleep. Now that I've been several weeks off of it I don't need it to stay alert after just a few hours sleep either. I still drink decaf coffee in the morning though. And have dark chocolate, but relatively early and not in very big amounts.
>>
>>35943328
The science is that placebos work.
>>
>>35943524
Or just turn your monitor brightness down.
>>
>>35943615
It's not just how bright it is. The color of the light is important too.
>>
>>35943615
Something blue light something circadian rhythms something
>>
>>35943637
>>35943654
And reducing brightness also directly reduces the amount of blue light. flux works I just think it's unnecessary and I like having proper colors.
>>
>>35940980
>>35940980

Lift weights

Exercise

Take some melatonin (needs an hour to work and you can't keep using everday as you grow a tolerance just like caffeine), block out the light, buy some blackout shades

I had insomnia for 2 months straight averaging about 3-4h of sleep a night. I hated my life and everything felt painful
I didn't want to get over the counter Stuff nor prescribed shit
So I just smoked weed for about 3 months, it was glorious to recover all that sleep
Now I don't need it anymore, had I not started smoking I'm pretty sure I would've still had sleep problem
