    Good poll. I think ultimately it is best to truly work at your overall health physical and mental that way you may ultimately achive your goals. It can be argued that some people always have slept 5-7 hours a night and that is normal. I will agree barring any unrecognized health issue, but I think that is the exception to the rule. Ultimately if someone doesn't work at bettering their body and mind for whatever reason and the mind is seemingly causing low amounts of sleep,.. I think it better to use benzodiazepines or other sleep medications to achieve more sleep for a lower morbidity rate... taking into acct the quality of sleep is better with the drugs as without.... anyhow all cycles back up to the fact that we should try to find a way to achieve appropriate sleep 'naturally' ,through healthy living is what we should work hardest to strive for. But as it is fairly hard work to do all of the things required for a healthy body and mind, a couple of valiums here and there won't hurt in the long run. Just my opinion:cool:

    I have had terribe bouts of insomnia and found valium and xanax were the only drugs that helped me get back to a normal sleep pattern. Over the years Ive found there are certain conditions one can create to get a better nights sleep, such as a suitable matress, darkened room, keeping to a schedule and listening to relaxing music.

    You know if this is tru then I should live to be 199 years old, But seriously ever since going on TRT and taking 4G OF COLLAGEN a night I sleep better than I have in over 15 years. I at least get a good 12+ hours a night. I LOVE to sleep (both day and night) but at the same time if I ever have to get up at 6am I can pop up like I've had my 12+ no problem at all. Strange I know the next night I still need to get at least 10hours to feel "good". Glad people who sleep a lot will not die a lot younger, then I would be dead by now LOL

    I'l buy into the point these guys are trying to put together - that is sleep helps you live a bit longer the question I have is what happens when you find it difficult to sleep or relax, your body simply wakes up, your mind is going on thinking and it keeps you up Is it better to be taking a small dose of valium, Xanax, & Ambien right there and then, and get 8 hours . or do you keep trying to fall asleep with wasted hours as a result?

    I get around 6 hours of sleep. I think at least 6 is fairly good, but getting 8 hours in total would probably be better I think. For me 6 hours seems to be more than enough and I feel well rested when I wake up, and don't often get too tired during the day

    As much as I would like to sleep as long as 10 to 12 hours, my mind begins to wake up after 6 hours of sleep. Even if I try, I still can't go back to sleep. My mind is active and I feel pains if I stay longer in bed. I'm having a hard time enjoying longer sleep. I even tried sleeping pills to no avail of success.
