Hoggie is now letting me sleep

Many of us have trouble sleeping. The news says most of us do not get enough sleep. Lack of sleep causes weight gain because your appetite system doesn't reset itself unless you get enough sleep.*

Often, especially during the first month of a quit, sleep is hard to come by.

I've dealt with little sleep for many years and recently found a solution.

About a week ago I bought an mp3 player and plugged it into a little computer speaker set I already had that I paid $20 for new.

I loaded the internal 4gb with about 10, 10 hour mp3's of the ocean, rain, running water, etc.

Hoggie's MO has been to sleep all day and then go out and come in through my window meowing and waking me up about 6 times a night.

Since I've started using this sleep aid, Hoggie is now sleeping great which lets me sleep great. I've gone from 5-6 hours a night to 7-9 hours a night.

I suggest taking $50 of that money saved from cigarettes and giving it a try!

Practical solutions for difficult problems. LOL

PS You may already have an mp3 player and speakers. you can use your smartphone or your computer with speakers. I didn't want to run my computer all night is why I chose this combination.

Another trick for getting to sleep when your mind is cluttered is to get up and write down all the clutter so thinking about it doesn't keep you awake all night. Once you've got it in a document you can deal with it in the morning.
