This is something that I've struggled with ever since I started sleeping like shit because of reasons I don't need to post here; I usually wake up anywhere from 9 to 10, so even waking up at 8 would be an improvement, but I want it to be at 6 or 7. Any day I wake up anytime from 6 to 7 is a successful day.
I set up my alarm to wake me up tomorrow at 6:23, why 6:23 you ask? Well, I don't know, it's 23 extra minutes I get of sleep if I were to wake up at 6, so that's that.
The plan is very simple, go to bed today no later than at 12, get up early tomorrow, drink coffee and energy drinks all day, watch movies and play videogames.
I already worked through the stuff I had to do tomorrow so I don't have to worry about doing them in case I'm too tired.
Alright so my neighbours threw an all-out party last night and I was unable to sleep until they shut the fuck up at about 3 am, I went to bed at 12. I ended up waking up at about 9 and getting off bed at 10.
Sucks, but at least I'm tired so I know I'll be going to bed early today, and hopefully that will make me wake up early tomorrow.
Hey Jake, I might be able to help you out. You might already know some of this but it could be of great help. You might have heard of a thing called sleep cycles. Basically, people go through roughly 90 minute periods which is equal to 1 sleep cycle. Some people's cycles can be slightly less or more, but the consensus seems to be about 90 minutes. If someone is woken up at the wrong time (deeper sleep, I think it's called REM) then they could sleep for 10 hours but still feel shitty/groggy the whole day. I personally find this and am having my own sleep problems as well. So with this knowledge, it is generally best to sleep for a period of time that is divisible by roughly 90 minutes. E.g. 9hrs, 7.5hrs, 6hrs, 4.5hrs. There is an app called sleep cycle which tracks your sleep and wakes you up in a time frame (e.g. 9am-9:30am) with a gentle alarm. This is much better than a blaring alarm that could wake you up during deep sleep. Also, make sure your room is dark and buy a cheap eye mask and ear plugs if noise is a problem. No phone light before bed as this sends wrong messages to your brain and you can install a program called flux on your computer to alter the blue light. Another thing is you could buy some melatonin and take between 0.2mg-0.4mg each night about 1 hour before bed. Most company's have a dosage set at 3g, which will fuck up your body's natural melatonin production (greedy bastards). This will not happen if small doses are taken. All of these recommendations I have given you are a product of my own research and I employ most of these strategies myself, but if you are unsure on anything then you can do your own research. Hope you can catch some solid ZZZ's bro.
I would also recommend 5HTP.
100mg on most days is enough to naturally make me want to go to bed. You can combine it with melatonin if you need to but I don't think you will need to.
It's an amino acid that helps with relaxation and ease of mind.

Awesome, man, I hadn't heard of that. I also bought some Doxylamine Succinate, whatever works, works.
Yesterday I took 3mg of melatonin and it did help but it's apparently not the solution, I'll keep experimenting with it tho, I ordered 5htp and Doxylamine Succinate from ebay, so I still have a long time to wait for those to get here.
Last friday I took one doxylamine succinate tablet and I slept for 16 hours.
I definitely recommend it for those who really need to catch some z's and can afford to actually sleep that much, if you have a 9-5 the next day, not so much.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
