    In no specific order/regularity:
    1. Coffee
    2. Tea
    3. Exercise (every night)
    4. Did mention coffee?
    5. SDN (during breaks)

    I usually call it quits around 1am, and get up around 6:30 or 7. I think its helpful to get around 6 hrs per night for retention purposes and consolidation into long term memory (at least for the basic sci years), plus its just not worth it.

    Comes naturally... I'm a nightowl.

    My entire family on my father's side only sleeps about 3-4 hours/night. It's a curse. When I go to sleep, it's automatic that I wake up in 4 hours. Only rarely can I sleep longer. :(

    When I saw this thread all I thought of was the Lionel Ritchie song...

    i find whatever pills i can get my hands on and swallow/crush and snort/freebase and inject them.

    Ive found so far that adderol from canada keeps me up longer than ritalin from mexico.

    But really nothing works better than a few old coffee grinds cooked in a spoon with a bit of ammonia (or urine if its all u have handy), injected IV. Of course, that late at night, its sometimes hard to find a good vein.
