How to beat insomnia without drugs

by Ron Newman
(New York, NY, )

When I was diagnosed with insomnia, I was given all kind of medication. At the time I decided to take meditation classes and I found them to help relax my mind.
I realized that the best time to help my insomnia was during the day when I was awake. I started breathing correctly, I slowly changed my diet and I started taking long walks whenever I could, which helped to calm my mind.
One day a friend recommended that I listen to guided sleep meditation before when I go to sleep. I discovered that by listening to beautiful sleep music and a calming voice helps me to fall a sleep and to sleep better. Now days I shop around online and I have a library of different guided meditation that help me to sleep better. I would like to share on such guided sleep meditation called Deep sleep by ztrance.
I rarely use drugs now, I keep up my good diet and walking during the day and my sleep is improving all the time.

Chronic Insomnia for Years

by Madelene White
(Canada)

I take over the counter sleep aids, at first I did this to abuse the medication, to help me deal with many losses in my life.
It also let me sleep better.

A few weeks ago I stopped using over the counter sleeping pills and had dreadful insomnia which made me feel mental.
I then started last week and my sleep is fantastic. i don't take the recommended dosage, I take 150-250 mgs. I do suffer overdose side effects for a few hours and then I can go to sleep. The recommended dose is 50 mg. I don't wake up drowsy, I feel refreshed.
I hate to say this but I will continue in this way if it means functioning better during the day because of a good nights sleep.

I had gone for treatment to treat a possible drug addiction and was told I don't have a drug addiction, of course I now believe differently.
Due to unfortunate circumstances I can no longer access drug addiction treatment.
