@Lunar Lady, Lu Lu, sweetie yeah I can relate to that. The only time I've ever slept properly is when I was working long hours doing manual labour I was so exhausted even my messed up brain chemistry couldn't keep me awake.

The same for me year round, wasn't so bad when I used to drink a lot that knocked me out, my ex is Schizo-affective and she gets a lot less sleep in summer.

I just googled it...and it's a thing! To do with late evening light and producing melatonin.

Why can't you sleep?

I thought there was a correlation.

Nicotine is more addictive than heroin well done mate, proud of you, I've been smoking like crazy today, haven't felt like gaming which distracts me.

It's much like what Eddie said about drinking though - I know if I take my eye off the ball for a second, I'll smoke. I have to brainwash my mind every day to stay focused. Mind you, I've smoked heavily my entire adult life...takes some getting used to.

Well if I get involved in a heavy dungeon run in ESO I'm so focused on that I don't even get the urge so it's weird but just lazing around I've been smoking two an hour today which is a lot even for me.

Hey @Parayana still struggling a bit. Got my serapax so i feel pretty mellow, probably just end up having a sleep this afternoon. Got to find something to fill the time in that's the problem. Think I will buy a more complicated editing software just to have a tinker on, for something to do the one I've got is pretty basic. Built a replacement pc online, but that came in at $2000 AUD so probably just beef up my old one. Built a pretty crazy hyperspin gaming setup a few years ago, might do a bit of maintenance on that, got all the capcom games and most of the game console systems on it.

@EddieH, games keep me off the booze as well, bought a couple of cheap CD Keys today online so got a couple of new ones.

It's all gone out the window. It's crept back and i fear this time it's going to be worse than ever. Not sure what happened a few minor hick ups and i'm back on it, it really sucks that i'm that weak. Thanks everyone for the support. I will have another attempt at being sober soon. Disappointing but i guess it's part of the journey to getting well.

@EddieH, don't beat yourself up mate, the fact that you stayed sober for so long is an achievement. I've quit booze many times and gone back, this time I've been dry for two months. As a former heroin addict fiend who is now an addiction counsellor said to me - never give up on giving up.
