I am having sleep disorder


I am 28. I was working woman. I got married in January, 2012 and decided to stay with husband for a year in Africa without a job as its to easy to get job in this country.

Due to joblessness and boredom, my drinking went up. Earlier I only drank on weekends and in less quantities. My joblessness also made me little depressed.

I stared having troubled sleep for last 2-3 months. So much so that to induce sleep, I would have 2-3 pegs of alcohol. For last 15-20 days, I am trying hard to sleep without alcohol but its very difficult. I start feeling restless, I close my eyes for hours before I can get sleep. Even if I get sleep after 3-4 hours, its mostly disturbed. I started doing cardio exercise for 1 hour and now I spend about 2 hours in gym. I was hoping this will tire me enough to get a sleep.

Nothing is helping. I am not much of a smoker, I smoke 3-4 slim cigarettes in day. I eat vegetarian food 4 days in a week and strictly avoid red meat. I don't want to get to alcohol to sleep. Please help.

Re: I am having sleep disorder

Hi Pragyan

I also suffer from insomnia for the last 5 mnths, after i quit drinking
i'm 51 year old male and i had drank for longer period that you did. i started drinking even before you were born!

although i only drank heavily last 5 -6 years.

anyways, it has been five mnths, and i started with couple of hours of sleep, but now i regularly get 5 hours and sometimes more.

i also remember reading a post from another whose sleep got back to normal after 17 mnths.

i know it sounds scary and depressing to hear such a long time, but you being young and not an extended time of drinking, you should be able to bounce back quicker.

and it will come back.

i'm still not happy with what i get, 5 hours - but i'm sure i'll get more eventually.

Keep in touch with family. Look for help with your addiction to alcohol. Love and prayers.
