3 Things to Avoid Before Going to Sleep
1. Avoid caffeine (so no coffee, cola drinks, chocolate)
within 8 hours of bedtime. Although people think caffeine will
not affect their sleep if they are already on regular caffeine,
2. Avoid alcohol within 6 hours before bed time. It can reduce the quality of sleep.
3. Avoid smoking at least 2 hours before bed time. Nicotine is stimulating.
So, you've tried to do all of this, but there is no success. There is a school of thought that you really need to break this bad sleeping cycle. Once you are able to do this successfully, all will be ok again. So, trying a proven herbal sleep remedy is only temporary measure, a way to get back to sleeping (and living) normally again.
