that's pretty dank actually.

do you think people still do it in saudi anyway? i mean i'm sure you can't say for sure but judging from most muslims' attitudes towards it would you guess most people still do it there, kinda like weed in the west?

From what I have heard, got mates who used to live there, the Westeners there make their own alcohol and there is no real branded booze at all. Apparently a lot of the shops have sections where they sell everything you need, unofficially of course

A lot of Arabs drink, a lot more that people expect tbh but I think Saudis either go to Bahrain or come to the UAE to do it, religious police over there are very backwards and strict

My sleep is terrible! Got up at 6am this morning after only managing 3 and a half hours of sleep, slept as soon as I got back home until about an hour ago. I have to get up at 6am again this morning and I'm contemplating doing an all night on the ps4 in order to increase the likelihood I'll be up and ready to leave on time. Last term was so bad and I only had one 9am start in the week. I just find it incredibly hard to sleep unless I've had some 'erbal' assistance :lol:. It even got to the point where I've had e-mails threatening me with withdrawal so I really need to make sure I attend shit this term. :|

If i cant sleep i rub one out to tire myself. Then when i slightly fall asleep, i dream of rubbing one out again so there is a chromatic/mechanical pattern (like counting sheep, but i'm not Welsh so there's no point) to keep myself from waking up.

:a: After years, decades even, of trying different things, the best seems to be a consistent schedule, heavy exercise, a benzo, and some form of mental trickery at night that tells my brain that we're not going to sleep, and then when it is not looking, and naturally fatigued, bammo we slip off. That trickery can be butthole surfing the interwebs.

Hold tight the white noise crew.

I can't fall asleep, or even stay asleep, without a fan going.

It really does suck and it really messes with your day.

I think mine was from stress and not eating enough but it is a catch 22 because I'll get stressed out and then lose my appetite.

I've always been a light sleeper but here I was getting these hypnagogic jerks and muscle twitches that would keep waking me up right when I was trying to to fall asleep. All night, over and over and over.

Marijuana helps me with both the appetite issue and the sleep thing most of the times. I'll smoke a couple of puffs of a strong indica a couple of hours before bed and it helps me fall asleep usually.
this sounds just like me man, for about 3 weeks during and after outlook 2012 i had serious sleep anxiety which meant that my brain was constantly subconsciously aware that I wanted to sleep, so as I was drifting off my brain got all excited and gave my body a surge of adrenaline or a big jolt which woke me back up again, every time. the only way to get to sleep was by taking sleep meds that my friend had, which made me groggy the whole of the next day and i only got like 2 hours a night due to the ridiculous heat in the mornings. it basically meant i spent the whole of the festival as a zombie and missed out on any action past 5am :(
definitely caused by too much drug abuse, had md like 4 nights in a row prior to the festival which fucked my serotonin up badly. i got sorted in the end by getting a prescription for these quasi-benzos.
once you learn to control your anxiety and say "no you're being a fucking idiot calm down" to yourself you're basically fine, its just about getting out of that loop.

I only really sleep well when I drink a fair amount.. but not too much that I end up hungover.

Recently been waking up mid-dream 2/3 times and night and having really vivid dreams. Often I'll have a total of like 10 hours of broken sleep and feel worse than if I don't sleep.

I thought dreams were suppose to occur in deep sleep which is the best sleep? I find when I dream I feel more tired and the more vivid the dream/longer it feels, the worse I feel. Maybe its because I'm waking up mid-dream thats making me feel shit?

As I understand it the good sleep is a layer below dreaming sleep, so if you keep skipping back up from the dream state, you may never be getting down to that deep restive sleep. But I just woke up after a few benzo induced shitty hours of sleep, so what do I know?
