Smoking isn't the best thing to do at night, 'cos it wakes you up.
Although, I'm a fine one to talk, I smoke the most at night.

I also think that painting when you're a beginner is quite stressful and exhausting and maybe not something to get into this late at night.

Hope you get some sleep soon.

Hope you sleep better tonight.
I've not had a great deal of sleep lately either. It's difficult when your mind's racing. Let's hope tonight's different. :sleepy2:

Dear Clive, I know exactly what dealing with sleepiness nights feel like--especially if you're mind is racing and you can't relax. I do whatever I can to get through them; take hot bath, drink sleepy time tea and I see noting wrong with painting. It's great you've thought of something creative to do. I hope you get some rest soon!

You should avoid smoking every night and drink a lot of cold water every day, it can help you with your sleeping problem
