    How do you sleep?
    -Since it's hot, and it's summer, I sleep on my side with my legs far from each other (xD)
    Where do you sleep?
    -... on a bed
    How long do you sleep?
    - Since summer started, I sleep 8-10 or maybe more sometimes.. (On school days I usually sleep 7-8 hours)
    What is you sleep quality like?
    -Mostly nice. But when I was little, I had the same dreams over and over, and sometimes I still have those old dreams, which is wierd -_-. These always repeated: Getting kidnapped, being in a lego building as a lego with other lego peepz and the lego building is flooding... And there was once a dream, (it didn't repeat) where my family were zombies and tried to kill me.
    Do you change sleeping position(s) often?
    -YES TOO MUCH
    Are there things you do that makes you sleep better?
    -Imagining me as a character in One Piece as a part of the Strawhats <3
    Are there things you like that makes you sleep better?
    -I hug pillows that are cruncheeeeeeeeh~~ :3
    Are there things you don't like that makes you sleep worse?
    -Hmm... When some people party with loud music on the streets, when there's an asshole drifting over and over on the street (it happened, the smell was SO RAGE INDUSING!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA)

    Oh yeah, and once or twice when I had a bad dream when I was little, I was able to control it a little. But for that, I had to be able to notice this is a nightmare, and I had to be able to talk to myself saying: This is just a dream.

    A friend of mine has one of those, and I thought it was some sorta kinky bondage thing!

    Well, look at the bright side...ya can pretend to be Darth Vader, and stuff! :p

    But me, I also sleep on a mattress on the floor, on my tummy, toss and turn a lot, sleep pretty restless. Sleep's hard for me. I also tend to worry a lot, as I fall asleep, this sorta swirl of worry that keeps me up.

    I. AM YOUR- local cow(insane) from the local herd(mental cow hospital), actually. Moo.

    I've considered using one, seeing as my weight is fucking with my sleep quality. I am at 115kg at the moment, down from 122kg since Christmas. It's going way too slow because I am too much in love with food. So much tasty food to eat, yanno. <3

    But, eh. My food intake is being controlled a lot more recently. When I used the machine I slept like a cat. Uninterrupted. Calm. Relaxing. I felt completely and utterly refreshed. But I don't like having stuff on my face.

    To answer simply, I have no idea, cannot seem to rest, and prone to randomly waking up.
    Usually well rested though, so it evens out

    How do you sleep?
    a) Left or right side. Not on my back or stomach.

    Where do you sleep?
    a) In a California Queen bed with my wife.

    How long do you sleep?
    a) Not long enough. 4 to 6 hours average.

    What is you sleep quality like?
    a) Quality? Eh? I have sleep apnea.

    Do you change sleeping position(s) often?
    a) At least four or five times. Mostly when the mask starts leaking and the whistling wakes the missus up. Her elbow wakes me up, then I change positions and re-position the mask.

    Are there things you do that makes you sleep better?
    a) Not really - I have to shave close at night to get a good mask seal on my Respironics fitlife Total CPAP mask.

    Are there things you like that makes you sleep better?
    a) Drink a 40 of Steel Reserve High Gravity.

    Are there things you don't like that makes you sleep worse?
    a) Neighbors kids or music. Having immigrated from the middle east, they have no sense of "Keep it Fukkin' Quiet!" We've had words where I've done my best Walt Kowalski on the husband.

    As an aside, I've had a neighbor with a Harley, straight piped, no baffles. After a month of that sh!t, I screwed his garage door shut in the middle of the night with twenty-four #6 Robertson drive trim screws. The ones that take the smallest Robertson bit that's a b!tch to find. It was quiet for a few days, anyway.

    Pipistrele Smart batto!

    Randomly, due to switching shifts and weird working conditions. Sometimes I sleep one time a day, sometimes three times a day, sometimes 4 hours, sometimes 10 hours, sometimes I do that in the comfort of my own bed, sometimes I sleep on a wall-table in a boiler room at my workplace while using old-ass jacket as a pillow. When you're constantly switching between the shifts, there's no such thing as sleep schedule, but I kinda adjusted to that over time, and this kind lifestyle still has its benefits (I can freely talk to folks outside my timezone, and walking around the city at night is cool).

    Jarren You can't just quote yourself! -Me

    Step 1: Get somewhat horizontal.
    Step 2: Close eyes and envision the sweet embrace of sleep.
    Step3: ????????
    Step 4: Profit! Sleep... eventually

    Normally this method will get me between 4 and 10 hours of sleep, depending on schedule and I'll sleep just about anywhere on just about anything. Typically end up falling asleep on my right side or stomach and I sleep rather well.

    It is 1:10 am PDT and I just got back from tasking my neighbor to "Be quiet, NOW!" I used my best Drill Sgt voice on him, something R. Lee Ermey would have been proud of.

    The party in the next complex went quiet, too. I dunno why . . .

    I know a lot of people that use a Sleep-Apnea machine and say they could never go back to trying to sleep without it. I was going to chime in and suggest you try one since they're regarded so highly, but I read the rest of your post and I guess you already did try one and it bothered you so you stopped. G'luck. Weight is a tough one. I have weak will when it comes to awesome stuff like food, and I'm starting to (not) notice a bit of a tummy these days.

    Edit: I suppose I should actually post an on-topic reply too. I sleep on a bed on my tummy at night. The only thing that generally moves is my head flopping around whilst hunting for cold spots on my pillows. I wake up in the morning at the time I need to be up and no sooner.

    I definitely don't get enough sleep, but sleep catches up with you anyways so if you're just dodging it you'll get a great night's sleep at some point in time. I'd hate to not legitimately be able to get any though. Sleep's important and really affects your day.

    Benthehornyhyena Too many stories, too little time

    How do you sleep? It comes by periods in which it takes me long to sleep alterning by periods in which I quickly fall asleep, and generally I sleep well.
    Where do you sleep? In a bed.
    How long do you sleep? Generally 8 hours, sometimes 7 or 9. My reccord was 12 and it happened only once !!!
    What is you sleep quality like? Generally I sleep well, but a few times happened I was tired and didn't even realize I slept even if the clock proved me so but it took me long to sleep and I woke up to go to the bathroom and/or drink a lot. Oh, talking about that, almost all nights I get up to dod that, it can happen once, twice or thrice. It's rare I don't.
    Do you change sleeping position(s) often? Yes, all I the persons I shared my bed with when I was a child or a teen (my mother, my aunt or my half-sister) confirmed I move a lot and even kick and punch.
    Are there things you do that makes you sleep better? Not cross midnight except Christmas Eve or New Year. Anyway I fall sleepy quite soon for a young adult, around 10.30 PM or 11 PM I yawn and can be more or less tired.
    Are there things you like that makes you sleep better? A warm fluffy bed and warm PJs when it's winter, I feel like a bird in its duvet nest.
    Are there things you don't like that makes you sleep worse? Lights on; even far away, and noise. And of course some diseases.

    I sleep on a foldout bed that is normally a couch. It ends up being a bed more than it is a couch, though.
    I usually go to bed at around 3 AM and sleep for 10-12 hours.
    I only sleep on my stomach. Others tell me that I change postions in my sleep a lot, always settling on my back with my knees in the air. I never wake up like that though.
    I have to be really tied to go to sleep. Exercising before bed helps.
    It helps if my room is cold so I can be snuggly under the blankets.
    Lights are something I absolutely cannot deal with. If there is even a tiny light it makes sleeping much harder. Noise doesn't bother me that much.

    How do you sleep?
    Hm. I'd say fairly decently. I used to have pretty bad insomnia but I feel like it's mostly over now.
    Where do you sleep?
    Bed, although I really enjoy sleeping in couches for some reason.
    How long do you sleep?
    8-ish hours per night
    What is you sleep quality like?
    Decent. I usually wake up a bit each night, but it rarely affects my day afterwards.
    Do you change sleeping position(s) often?
    Yeah, once or twice per night, usually sleep on the front tho.
    Are there things you do that makes you sleep better?
    Been trying a lot of stuff. Valerian root works decently, but could be a placebo. Avoid sleeping pills, because they screw up you sleep schedule. Reading before sleep, exercise 2 hours beforehand too.

    Always had trouble sleeping.
    Right now I go to sleep at like 3pm, in a few weeks it'll probably be 7pm, 10pm a few weeks after that, and so on. My sleep schedule moves around the clock. I sleep almost exclusively in my own bed (or those of others ).
