  • Kicking the habit...

    I have decided, in my advanced middle age, to stop taking Ambien. I had trouble sleeping, and still do, but I have been taking this for at least 5 years and now that's enough. The stinking Dr said I could take it forever but of course it doesn't have the punch it once did so I cut cold turkey a couple of nights ago.

    ​Some tossing and turning, but no withdrawal effects other than that, which I expected and had anyway. I know how Harb feels about these drugs, and that aided my decision. Anyway, it was the right thing to do. Next project is to loose some weight which is a lot harder. There's this really good Chinese restaurant......

    You could try hypnosis apps for sleeping. They work well for some people.

      I have found my sleep is better since getting a spelt pillow. I find it far more comfortable than the standard kind of pillows.

        Hmm...I thought doctors had stopped saying that about sleeping tabs back in the 90s.
        Well done, though, in getting off it!
