drink until you pass out....thats what i do every night

Well, assuming it's not a medical problem (insomnia or some sleep deprivation disorder), a good way to relax and fall asleep is a method used in Pilates.
You need to lay flat on your back, arms by your sides (you may bend your knees and rest your feet on the surface if it feels more comfortable).
Breathe through your nose, exhale for twice as long as you inhale--say, you breath in for 3 seconds, so breath out for 6. Make sure every breath you take in fills in your ribcage, and focus on your breath coming in and out... that by itself will relax you almost instantly.
Now, you perform a check. Start by relaxing your neck, your shoulders, feel the energey flowing and relaxing the muscles in your arms, your wrist, your fingers. Keep it going down your body, your back, your abs, your thighs, your knees...all the way down to the tip of your toes. By now, your muscles should be extremely relaxed, your mind rid of all thoughts except for your breath coming in and out of your nose, in and out of lungs. Stay relaxed and breathing until you fall asleep.
This technique is most effective if you do it after a little work out--should have you asleep in no time!

i do something i don't like to do, like...
- read a boring book
- watch stupid/pointless tv
- clean my room
cause it wears me out and exhausts me

try daydreaming or think of something positive/comforting
also, i drink warm milk or a cup of tea

Knock you're self out, take sleeping pills, drink warm milk, stay in bed close you're eyes and never open them, thats about all I know.

count sheep... ahah just kidding. that never works. hmm. i just fluff up my pillow and if i cant sleep then drink some calming tea and watch a really boring tv show so you get so bored you fall asleep. good luck :]

This may sound lame, but it has always worked for me. As a kid my mom would warm up a coffee cup full of milk, then add 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract. It works for my 9 year old son too.

1. Just close your eyes and dont think about sleeping, think about your day, or anything but going to sleep! :D you will eventually dose off.
2. Read a novel, 1-5 pages, will make your eyes tired and easier to fall asleep.
3. Play portable game with light inside it ( DS, PSP or SP ) Turn the lights on and play for a good 15-30 mins, eyes will get tired and you will wanna go to sleep :)
4. Or create a sleeping habit.
If you wanna go to sleep at 11PM then try to sleep at that time, and then you will be used to it.

PS or exercise/do sports in the day to make yourself tired

Hope this helps you to go to sleep!

ive had that problem since i was a teen and i know its cuz i have alot of activity goin on in my head so i cant fall asleep. my best advice is get to bed on time and just lay there. pills and meds are not healthy! but if ur seriously having trouble during the day because of it try sum NyQuil.

Music. Simple =)

Curious Rose
turn on the tv for a bit, get comfortable
and soon enough youll be dozing off:)

i TOTALLY noe how that feels...its been going on for me for a month so far...i never fall asleep before 2 am....ive tried evrything from hot showers, avoiding caffeine, snug blankets and pillows, soothing mozart (!!), cool aircons...but i cant get to sleep. so i just read in bed until i become drowsy..but am getting panda-like dark circles under my eyes..arghh....
i think you should get to a doctor, coz thts wht i'll be doing soon...insomnia is doing my head in... or another way is to train ur mind---for a week of so, set urself a bed time which is an hour or so earlier than ur normal sleeping time EVEN IF UR NOT sleepy...switch the lights off and think of things u like, or think of nothing. for eg..if u sleep at 3. am...try lights out at 2 am for a week...then try 1 am ..and so on.

take a hot shower, lay in bed. try to be as still as possible for as long as possible without thinking too much.that should do it

Here are some suggestions:
Nap every single day
Contrary to all the sleep sources that say to avoid napping during the day in order to sleep better at night, I believe it is actually a good idea to nap every day. But in order to make this work it is vital to stick to three rules:
Nap regularly
Keep it short, and
Make it in the early afternoon
1) By napping at the same time every day, your body will start to regulate itself to want to nap at that time and it will become easier to fall asleep quickly and take an efficient nap; 2) Keep it short – only nap for about 20 minutes. This length of time, a power nap, is just enough to make you feel refreshed and mentally more alert but doesn’t allow you to go into a deep sleep (which would interfere with falling asleep at night), and; 3) Make sure to nap in the early afternoon – preferably about 20 to 30 minutes after lunch, which is when your body is naturally inclined to feel sleepy, and early enough in the day to not interfere with falling asleep at night.

Avoid taking a hot bath
There is a lot of advice that says take a hot bath right before bed to relax yourself, but since the body needs to lower its temperature in order to fall asleep a hot bath will actually keep you up. If you find a hot bath very relaxing, enjoy it about 2 hours before your bedtime so that your body has enough time to cool down. Make sure to give your body at least an hour to cool down after a bath and prior to going to bed.

Make your room colder
Similar to the point above, your body needs to cool down in order to fall asleep and stay asleep, so do what you can to make your room cool. For me, a cool bedroom has the added benefit of nestling into a heavy comforter, and I find the heavy warmth on top of me very soothing.

Exercise intensely
Don’t just “exercise�, but do so intensely, to the point of feeling physical exhaustion. At the end of the day, this is probably the single best thing for helping induce deep, restorative sleep. When I say “intensely�, I mean intense relative to your capability. For some this may mean running 5 miles, for others it may mean a brisk 20 minute walk that elevates the heart rate. Physical tiredness is absolutely essential to getting a good night’s sleep. New research presented at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS) shows that “an acute session of moderate aerobic exercise, but not heavy aerobic or moderate strength exercises� can improve the amount and quality of sleep for people with insomnia (without resorting to pharmaceutical sleep-aids).

Get out in the sunlight soon after waking up in the morning
When you wake up, don’t lounge around in bed. Don’t even stay inside. If possible, get out in the morning sun soon after getting up. The bright sunlight (or any bright light) tells your body’s natural biological clock that its time to wake up, and that same clock will then be set to tell your body its time to go to sleep about 14 to 16 hours hours later.

Don’t watch TV
Avoid watching TV (or looking at a computer screen) at least 30 minutes before you go to bed. Many sources of sleep advice say to watch TV or do something similar like surfing the Internet to wind down before bed, but I think this is bad advice. Watching TV and going online are both mentally and visually stimulating. It may feel physically restful, but these activities stimulate the brain instead of helping the brain wind down enough to fall into sleep.

Block out noise
White noise is restful, and even more importantly, it means that I won’t be woken up with every little thump that the house makes. A fan is ideal because it does double duty of providing consistent soft background noise as well as keeping my room cool. White noise machines are also available. I got one from Radio Shack for about $20 that allows you to pick from sounds such as rain, babbling brook, and or a train (no whistles, just the wheels on the track).

Find a bedtime ritual that works for you
Warm milk? Yech. A cup of herbal tea? No thank you. These are commonly advised to help you rest and fall asleep. I say find the routine that works for you - whatever it is - and just do it every night. For me, it’s the simple act of shutting the house down. Turning off all the lights, picking up stray toys, reviewing the schedule for the next day, planning breakfast for the morning rush, and locking each door. Feeling organized about the house helps me feel less anxious. This simple routine tells my body that its time to close down for the day.
