Kekeke, this is true, but mostly if you leave them unattended, near fabric and other flammables, and especially with a draft. I put my candles in large glass containers where the flame couldn't possibly reach over the top and the effect of drafts is moot.
Exercise. Exercise. Exercise. This is the most effective cure for insomnia. As for other details, refer to those who either have been through insomnia or who have an encyclopaedic knowledge of insomnia.
If there is no obvious reason for your lack of sleep (too much caffeine, other stimulants, something very exciting or worrying in your life), you should go and see a physician. Don't worry about your parents, they will be grateful if you seek medical advice.
All the well meant advice in this forum cannot replace a good physical exam and a set of lab tests.
I've been sleeping maybe it was just a very bizzare week. Plus I think my body decided to be on european time, It would be exhausted during the day but I had stuff to do then wake up at night. I think it finally realized it was in America and as much as it wanted to be in Europe it trying to be in european time wasn't going to make it true.
I have suffered from insomnia most of my life (from about 6th grade on). I still suffer from it sometimes, but now it's mostly due to my mind not being able to turn off. I secretly worry that I am going to forget some thing important, so I have learned to "download" or transfer all of my random thoughts onto a steno book that sits on my nightstand.
I do hope you are getting more sleep, prplechknz!

I know exactly what it tells me, and I do listen, and it doesn't really matter. The bottom line is that I have to effectively exhaust myself both physically and mentally and not allow myself to get my adrenaline going too close to bedtime. Since I have become a parent, I have improved in those areas, but I still have my periods of failure to do so. Especially times like this in the summer when I don't have my son around as much as I do during the school year.
