    Sometimes. Sex is much better, though.

    I suffer from chronical insomnia. Two things that helped me to deal with the issue were doing exercise in the late afternoon, and replacing dinner with fruits.

    Only when I need to sleep a certain amount of hours, I take pills.

    I had a lot of issues sleeping for a long time. Tried various types of medications to help like Ambien, but I would either only stay asleep for like 2 hours, or wake up feeling like I hadn't slept at all.

    I kind of let it go, and just went without sleep for a long time until I started waking up with injuries - yes... injuries. Deep black bruises that I couldn't explain... Things as bad as concussions and dislocated shoulders. My chiropractor couldn't figure out how I was knocking so many joints and vertebrae out of place without doing any strenuous activity. Did some sleep labs for awhile, and as it turns out, I was tossing and turning so violently that I was hurting myself, and (obviously) getting no rest in the process.

    Started taking muscle relaxers before bed. Slept like a baby.

    That has happened to me so many times.
    I broke my big toe kicking the wall next to my bed once.

    I have troubles too, sleeping. Although it is some what excerbated, by being on call at work rather alot. Although this isn't exactly healthy, I find a glass of wine or three can help...if none of the suggestions above work.....or taking some antihistamines (the drowsy kind). < I need to this any hoo, I just swap from the non-drowsy kind.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
