    ....watched a dvd at 1.30....

    ......Still not approaching tired. Damned insomnia.

    .........I'll wait until the newsagent opens & get a pack of cigs. Then put the
    kettle on....

    Damn your multi-tasking!!

    At least tonight is better. Getting pissed watching Buzzcocks repeats on cable, then we'll be delving into my world class comedy dvd collection!

    I recommend meeting up with fellow Manchestians who are awake, but alas, even I am asleep.

    Doesn't help now but for tonight, just in case...

    Getting up and doing things like watching a DVD or reading won't help you go to sleep. You're encouraging your brain to start working again... Yes, you can fall asleep watching a show if you're already tired but it won't put you to sleep.

    On the occasions I can't sleep, I find that putting on my 'sleep' playlist on the iPod (originally designed for when I shared a room with someone who snored), having a hot drink and thinking of something repetitive - like clouds on a summer sky - seems to clear my mind enough to make me drop off.

    I was awake but not online. Insomnia is a right F**KER, I've suffered continuously for around about a year. The insomnia followed 18 months of having 9 hours sleep a night but still feeling F**ked in the mornings.
    My sleep pattern at the moment is all over the shop due to my medication.
    I'll keep a look out for you in the future.

    Sleeping doesn't bode well for Man United fans. Birmingham is coming after you lot. "Keep right on to the end of the road". MU may have beat Bolton, but how could you sleep knowing that BCSC is waiting to fry you in blue oil.
    HE_HE... BTW, are there any Birmingham fans here that live in Manchester? Just curious. Maybe good for a bet at the water cooler. Also curious, why have tea at 2am? I love this silly thread. perpetual insomniac meself.

    I was exactly the same last night. We went to bed at about midnight and I just couldn't get to sleep. The last time I remember looking at my alarm clock it was about 2.30am, and I remember lying there for a while longer than that.

    I get bouts of insomnia from time to time, I hope this isn't the start of another spell of sleepless nights...

    Yeah, but I'm a mental.

    A very nice mental, I think, but a bit mental all the same.

    Zopiclone is the only thing that helps me sleep, and I hate taking it because it's habit forming & leaves a sh*tty taste in the morning.

    I'll be ok when the work starts coming in again, but it's cool to know there are people around. Not many uk folk posting in one place, especially not Manchester.

    I'd better say "Chin-up" to the Man U fans today, after getting your arse slapped by City. I don't follow football, but I have enough friends & family who do to feel your pain (well, not really)

    Last thing I saw live in Manchester was John Hegley........

    I'm usually planning my night at about that time. I find I exhaust my abiliity to watch movies by around 6am, and have to find something to do for a couple of hours before I can get to the time where I can sleep: 8 - 9am.

    This helps. When your 60 mins run out, hit apple f on desktop & delete all traces of boxikon, then download again, and you get a new 60 mins. Do this over & over. I'm an addict!!!

    Best time on 'easy game' - 22 mins..........
