Greg:

That is fairly common with me - as many can tell that see the times of my posts here and elsewhere.

It does me no good whatsover to try to fall asleep. What sometimes works for me is to "trick" my body into falling asleep.

When I can't sleep, I lie down on the sofa, and watch TV. That usually will put me away in less than half an hour. Another thing I do is read a book. By not trying to sleep, I forget about what is going through my brain, and pass out quickly.

An antihistamene, asprin, or other "harmless" sleep inducing drugs also works a little.

Greg: Reading usually does it for me but it must be a technical book. Any of the Photoshop books will do. Dont try this with an interesting novel though. I was reading the Red Dragon last thursday and found it was 3:00 am when I finished.

Greg,
I have a sure fire way to fall asleep.
1. lay on the couch
2 turn tv on
3 wiat for that once only show you really want to see.

I always fall asleep before it starts and wake up for the credits. Never fails.

Wine would work better with me...(or a good strong margarita!)
2 glasses and I'm out...that bottle of Petite Sirah is starting to look tempting!

ah yes I remember.

A nice vegetable curry (no meat - bad for insomnia) with a decent wine sounds like the way to go

forgot about the wine thread...It seems I am still drinking the same stuff. Might be time to try something new!

The veg. curry does sound good...and I have all the ingredients except the jam and chutney.
