Sleeping Potions that work
when I remember to take them...

Melatonin and Kava Kava root. If I am having extreme difficulty sleeping I add some Valerian to the mix.

Lived with insomnia since I was 13, Melatonin and Kava Kava usually have me sleeping within minutes after hitting the pillow. I recall seeing a thread about sleeping difficulties but am too tired to look it up. G'night folks.

DG, having a man around who gives backrubs helps, but I don't how well that would work for you.

I take a big slug of nyquil. mMMMMMm Nyquil.

LOL Marcia, thanks for the suggestion but that won't work for me. :)

NyQuil does work, but I can't drink NyQuil every night. Thens there's always the random gagging that accompanies drinking NyQuil, the coughing, sneezing, make me gag, what am I doing sleeping on the kitchen floor medicine. ;)

LOL! Love them, but prefer women! Unfortunately, I haven't yet met a woman yet who has the strength to dig deep into those shoulder and back muscles. ;)

On another note, I sometimes have problems just getting to sleep. Can find myself laying in bed for hours before I nod off. I've tried many different things but there are only two that I follow that seem to work for me. 1st is daily excercize. I get up early and run 4 to 5 miles on weekdays - helps add to being physically tired at night. 2nd, No code work within 2 hours of going to bed. If I do, I find myself working out functions, loops, and what-have-you while my eyes are closed. Not very conducive to sleep though I have done some of my best work at those moments!

As for Nyquil, Sominex, et al - they don't work for me. I have found that a cup of "Throat Coat" tea or a warm cup of milk (finished 30 mins before bed) work rather nicely but I think it's more psychological.

And I hope no one minds if I add this but S.. is a nice precursor to sleep as well.

Valerian gives me nightmares- but two glasses of a good red wine and a book I know by heart - perfect if a little slow to work

One of the smartest things I ever did was when I was in college. For an elective, I took a Physical Therapy 101 class on massage (when my major was Computer Information Systems). First of all, it was a class of 2 guys and 18 women. Second, I got some pretty splindid full body massages (from those women, whom I recall as being uniformly pretty). Third, I learned a skill that has served me well for the remainder of my life.

It's one thing to rub someone's back. It's another thing to know that there are surface muscles and deep muscles in the back, and that you can do different strokes to massage each.

A good massage will put your girlfriend/wife into such a relaxed state that they will fall asleep easily.
