I used to be the same way. About two years ago, I took up working graveyard shifts. Since then, I haven't had any problems sleeping. Maybe I sleep better during the day, but I think it just has to do with the fact that I'm pretty damn tired when I go to sleep. There are also days when I'm just not tired. When that happens, I just say "fuck it" and stay awake the whole day. I guess my advice is to sleep when you're tired, and do things when you're not. If that doesn't work, try rum.

I've dealt with this issue for years. Here are some tips I've found that helped me.

- Melatonin. its a natural supplement that helps your circadian cycle.
- Turn off all electronics an hour before your bedtime.
- Eat a full healthy breakfast in the morning. This also helps your circadian cycle.
- If you have trouble "turning off your brain" at night, try Classical music, or music without lyrics, but preferably slow and soothing.
- White noise. Like a fan, humidifier, white noise generator app, etc.
- Reading
- DO NOT attempt to stay awake until the next night. This causes you to build a "sleep debt" and its very unhealthy.

Nyquil is a terrible idea. Too many other medications to treat something you don't have, including the cough syrup (dextromethorphan, or DXM) that is a hallucinogen . The main ingredient in nyquil that makes you drowsy is an antihistamine. You would be better off just taking benadryl instead, which I don't suggest cause it makes your sleep crappy and you wake up groggy.

dude i have the same prob as you i found some easy ways to fix them but i am too lazy to execute them

1- one hour before you sleep start watching episodes from a boring tv show or even a normal tv show, just make sure its nothing that will make you want more

2- read a good book before you go to sleep, books make me fall asleep really fast!!!

3-listen to a boring documentary saved on your ipod/iphone while in bed

mmm.. It's around wintertime now, right? Just wait for it to get really cold and then just snuggle in a warm bed
or turn on the ac a little and get the same results...

or do something really tiring, like reading a book about government taxes..

or drink warm milk and don't look into bright screens, such as computer and tv screens...

O.o one dose to induce drowsiness won't hurt. Do you even realize how much nyquil with DXM you have to take to start having hallucinations? >.>

Yes, I do know how much it takes to hallucinate (for me a little more than half a bottle if its 30mg... also I DO NOT recommend doing this, I spent the rest of the night vomiting and pissing out of my ass). But that's besides the point. My point was that there was too many other unnecessary medications, including that one. Why take a cocktail of medications to only receive the benefits of one? And again, it makes your sleep shitty and you wake up groggy.

Well how about exercising before you sleep. I used to take Muay Thai classes at night & that would tire me out a bit, plus the shower after & then a warm meal would get me pretty relaxed & sleepy. Hope this helps.

Temperature Control. If you're living by yourself you can try adjusting the room temperature. I set my room temp to the mid 60s and curl up in a blanket. On the down side, I really hate getting back out of bed into the cold.

What I do to fall asleep is listen to music, but the music is slow and soothing without lyrics, like what Cruentus said. Try Nujabes music, I listen to it every night. :3
