    Old*******swimb

    Why does one stop sleeping when one becomes old? I'm in bed by 10 every evening but then I'm awake before 5. I mean wide awake, bouncing around the walls awake. Obviously I have to get up for a gypsy's, and then - that's it, I'm up. So I've got 4 hours to kill before work. Sometimes I do a 5k run and then go for a 5 mile walk.

    By 10 a.m. I'm shattered

    How're your diurnal rhythms working out for you?

    Sounds like bed at midnight would help, swot I do. Then a bit of broken sleep one of them due to a jimmy and I generally wake up proper around 8

    It's years since I went to bed after 10. I'd just fall asleep on the sofa.

    I wonder if you can buy Mogadon off tinternet.

    Have you considered going to bed later? EDIT

    I find I wake up at 4, am awake for half an hour and can then get back to sleep for an hour and a half before having to wake up.

    I had a bit of a coldy-fluey thing last week, so I used some Nyquil I brought back from the US. Phew, that's good stuff! Knocked me out and I was still a bit mongy until about 11am. Say what you like about the yanqui, but they don't píss about when it comes to prescription drugs.

    I've found that by having the last drink before 9, invariably means I can forego the small hours slash. I don't usually hit the hay until gone 11 but usually stir just after 7. That, or the dog makes it quite plain he needs his garden visit.

    You have your last drink at 9, but don't go to bed until 11?

    What on earth do you do for those two hours?

    Hmm, but that's hours without a drink, surely you become dehydrated, or worse, reality breaks through?

    I was awake at 5 this morning - but I'm still sweating alcohol from Sunday. Then seeing the bill and needing more drink to forget it
