How do you get to bed on time? [MI]

In order to get to work on time (Mon-Fri), I need to get up at 7:30am. And, ideally, I believe that adults are supposed to get 8 hours sleep a night, which would mean going to bed at 11:30am. But, supposing that I could get by with 7 hours sleep -- yeah, you can see that I'm rationalizing already -- that would be 12:30am. So, each night, I intend to get to bed by around 12:30 but I procrastinate and it usually ends up being 1:00 or sometimes 1:30 before I get to bed. Needless to say, I'm pretty tired by the end of the week. Does anyone have any strategies for getting to bed when he/she intends to? And, as a related question, is that 8-hours thing an old wives tale or do you find yourself feeling well-rested with less/more than that?
