Do you just fall asleep when you go to bed or do you need to wait until you are absolutely exhausted? Do you use sleeping pills to fall asleep? Do you need lights out or can you sleep with lights on? I prefer pitch black myself, but if I'm tired enough I can sleep with lights on. I usually have to stay up as late as possible so I'm completely exhausted. I can usually manage this by staying up super late every other day. That way I'm tired the next day and can get to bed at a normal hour. I have trouble going to sleep sometimes but I won't go the sleeping pill route. There are too many things that scare me about them.
