No Smoke, No Sleep

Do you have any good methods for "hacking" nicotine-reduction insomnia? I'm quitting smoking, and I can successfully handle the withdrawal during the day using meditation, exercise and willpower. However, when it's time to sleep, I just don't get sleepy or tired unless I have a cigarette. [more inside]

How can I decide on a college major when I have NO interest?

How am I suppose to decide on a major when I have no real hobbies, interest, or passions for anything. Other than sleep or a good book I don't really do anything. I'm not the greatest writer and you can't support a family with sleep so what so I do to find something I truly enjoy. Something that actually will make me look forward to the day while I'm wasting away in minimum wage jobs while I decide on a major; After 60 semester hours at my school you have no choice.

What does an insomniac do with his bedroom?

One of the most common recommendations for insomniacs is to not use a bedroom for anything but sleeping (and sex, though I suspect that's a compromise to reality). And that's helped a lot. But... now I've crammed my entire life into my living room, because I have a one-bedroom apartment. And it's cramped! [more inside]

How can my wee boy get back to sleep?

Our little boy (he'll be 4 in June) wakes up most nights and can't get back to sleep for up to 3 hours. He suffers from occasional myoclonic seizures when he's tired, which complicate things some nights - but not all. He doesn't cry and this isn't the usual toddler sleep problem. It's more like chronic insomnia. What to do? We're all affected by this, obviously! [more inside]

Deep in-the-ear earbuds that don't leak sound.

I'm looking for cheap, deep-in-the-ear earbuds for listening to audiobooks. The sound quality doesn't have to be great, because I won't use them to listen to music. I want cheap ones, because I inevitably break headphones, and I don't want to have to spend $100 every month. On the other hand, I'm willing to spend $20 a month if I have to. In-the-ear, because I don't want to keep my wife awake with "leaking" sound. [more inside]
