Usually for me it's TV or radio but when I was very young I would often doze off for naps from the hoover and running baths

I'm like, "The game ended over an hour ago! So, what?! You're team won! Go to sleep already!!!"

Those annoying next door fans just won't shut up about their team!!!

The idea about "White noise" helping you fall asleep is that it helps you empty your mind. By focusing on the sound of the fan you stop thinking about other things which makes it easier to fall asleep.

Another reason is to help drown out more distracting sounds. If a room is silent you could hear a pin drop. But have a fan going and you need something louder to even catch you attention. Since the sound of the fan is constant you get used to it which is why you can fall asleep to it so easily.

I find it distracting.

I have to sleep with ear plugs or else I can't fall asleep.

I LOVE fans at night, or any low humming sounds that remind me of falling asleep in the car as a kid.

i like dead silence.

It doesn't bother me. I usually listen to music to fall asleep, which is probably a bad idea. I wear headphones, and sooner or later they'll probably end up strangling me in my sleep....such a dire thought.

Hehehe: "cree! cree! cree! cree!" You may be right, I don't know why I find it relaxing; it shouldn't be....

I grew up on a really busy street, so I need some kind of noise when I'm trying to sleep or else I feel uncomfortable. If I don't have something to distract me, then I start thinking about really stupid things I did in the past and cringe
