I Love Sleeping Pills

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 66 People

    I think I've hit the addiction mark.

    I take two every night to sleep. If I don't I'll be up 24/7. Unfortunately, I ran out and I really need them tonight. I've tried to stop but tonight I just can't. It's cold and rainy outside and my car is on the other side of campus. I thought that would stop me but I have to...

    Insomnia

    I suffer insomnia very badly so I have to take sleeping pills to sleep. If I don’t have a half of a pill, I will have major troubles falling asleep and staying asleep. It freaking sucks and I hope I get over it already.

    Cutin' Zzzzz's

    I started taking sleeping pills (otc) about 6 mnths ago.. A lot of problems and stress in my life and it was to the point where I could not sleep or I would toss and turn all night and never feel rested. I decided to try to take a sleeping pill to see if that would help settle me...

    They make me sleep and I love to sleep a lot.

    I love being in bed all the time. I work a lot and still dream all day at work of coming home and cuddling with my dog then going to sleep. It's so embarrassing.

    Afraid of Getting Hooked

    I often can't sleep frm over active mind. Can't switch off. Often lie there and examine myself until i decide I'm a **** and cry. I tried sleeping pills. They were great. Now I know i can't ever get back into them because i know I'll overdo it and that scares me. I'm...

    The Only Way Lately

    The only way I have been able to get a decent nights sleep lately is to take a sleeping pill about 2 hours before I'd like to go to bed.  I am taking Tylenol PM.  Honestly, I think they work as well as if I were to take a prescription with the exception they take a bit...

    They So Help

    I either stay up until I pass out or I take sleeping pills of some sort. As sleepy as I always am lately I just can’t seem to fall asleep when night comes. Sad part is that even with the pills I can’t sleep through the night but at least the little I do get is heavy...

    I absolutely love sleeping naked, and have been sleeping that way since I was 10 years old. But it would be cool to see how many others do and what got them started.

    Sleeping is a like breath of fresh air. Sleep can keep you energized. Sleep is like you are in a present dream that you don't want to wake up from.
