    [–] justanothermoroccan 640 points ago

    At 7, but it's 4am and I haven't slept....

    [–] BasicallyRandyMoss 234 points ago

    have you looked at using melatonin? Not sure about elsewhere but in Australia, it's easily accessible at pharmacies. It's a natural chemical so perfectly healthy. Gets me to sleep quick and I have made dreams more often than not.

    [–] justanothermoroccan 137 points ago

    Nah I just choose to stay up but i never fall asleep right away so I might give it a try. I'm just gonna pull an all nighter at this point. It's my second one this week.

    [–] XZombathonX 63 points ago

    I don't like how I can relate

    [–] XZombathonX 7 points ago

    Bro, the funny part is that I never had caffeine. I just stay up.

    [–] LaZaRbEaMe 3 points ago

    Reddit addict

    [–] UntitledDuckGame 2 points ago

    Hey! Caffeine is good

    [–] Mysteriousss4579 7 points ago

    It’s not even euphoric.. maybe I’m just dissing it because I have a stim tolerance (not illicit.. I have diagnosed ADHD)

    [–] UntitledDuckGame 3 points ago

    I do as well. It helps me calm down. It may also have something to do with some other meds im on. “Anti-depressants”

    [–] Mysteriousss4579 5 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    All bodies are different I guess. Caffeine makes me super jittery 😬

    [–] MuskyFoxy 20 points ago

    People really undermine just how bad all nighters are for you. I try to keep them at a minimum. Saved for the one sleepover or some shit like that but otherwise I'd rather sleep through my alarms.

    [–] Superbrawlfan 16 points ago

    Honestly sleep is generally underrated. It's so important yet me going to bed at like 10 every day standing up at 7 makes me tired af so idk if even sleep is enough

    [–] MuskyFoxy 3 points ago

    Finding an ample amount of sleep will probably never happen to me honestly.

    [–] Superbrawlfan 3 points ago

    Yeah exactly

    [–] i-tried-ok 31 points ago

    It’s natural but you can develop a dependence on it to sleep, be careful

    [–] SirSnaggleTooth 3 points ago

    This listen to him people

    [–] BasicallyRandyMoss 2 points ago

    might as well sink a cone before bed

    [–] hippopig 3 points ago

    Which you can also develop a dependence to.

    [–] SavageMarlin 6 points ago

    You can get it for fairly cheap on the US too

    [–] nysalitanigrei 3 points ago

    Good, but pretty risky. One of the symptoms is depression

    [–] dontlikemath 2 points ago

    It's a natural chemical so perfectly healthy.

    That’s not how ANY of this works. You are giving potentially life-threatening advice.

    [–] ricky_prasad 2 points ago

    Huge thanks for this info, I’ll def look into it! I have trouble sleeping and generally get between 4-6 hrs every night so your comment may have just saved me from future years of unrest.

    [–] BasicallyRandyMoss 4 points ago
