    I find that turkey knocks me right out and also warm milk if you are not lactose intolerant.

    I try to cut back on the caffeine. I'd also suggest a couple of mixed drinks before going to bed. White russians or screwdrivers work for me.

    If you're desperate, Tylenol sells a sleep aid which is the same ingredient as Tylenol PM without the acetaminophen. Also, like someone suggested before, you could try smoking weed. I would recommend pure Jamaican if you can get it. I hear that stuff will knock you right the hell out.

    If none of that works then you better start with the prescription pills.

    ETOH, Benzos, and THC.

    Reduce your stress level by engaging in some sort of physical exercise. It is hard to sleep when your stress levels are through the roof.

    Mastaurbation or a couple shots of vodka work pretty well for mildly stressful nights.

    For a really bad night, tylenol #3 (2, or 3 if you really want to feel good) is the gold standard for me because I never feel groggy the next morning unlike with tylenol PM or nyquil. I have yet to try soma, vicodin or the truly wonderful ativan but I've heard they're all nice too. Let all your muscles go limp, and wear ear plugs if sounds aggrevate the situation.

    take an ativan, record that Clear Eyes commercial with that monotone dude and watch it over and over and over. Or you could watch Saved by the Bell re-runs...
