You may call me Jiroh  
Does anyone out there know of any methods to make yourself fall asleep? I don't have insomnia as such, but even when I'm really tired -- like now -- I find it difficult to get to sleep. I usually have to stay up till anywhere between one and three in the morning before my eyes will consent to the whole shutting biz. As you might have guessed, this will not be conducive to my study/lecture schedule in September. It happened all last year too -- I kept nodding off in the shower in the mornings, or having little naps when particularly soothing lecturers were talking. Usually physiologists. I failed physiology three times. You can see where I'm going with this.

So -- anything? Herbal remedies? Teas? Recs for meditation tapes? (I have two already, but they suck.) Voodoo? Glue? Anything, please, I'm begging here.

But if you're going to say 'start reading Carrie at one in the morning,' don't, because I tried that and it didn't work. Good book though.

ETA: Via one of mousapelli's fics (Track 2: Chemistry) I finally found out that Semisonic sings that song. Don't ever say that fanfic teaches you nothing!

Yes, reading in bed seems to mitigate against the whole falling-asleep thing. It'll be hard for me to break the habit of nearly fifteen years, though. Still, I'll try your method too -- I'm going to try every method I can (although not, in some cases, simultaneously). Thanks!
