i always take a good hour to fall asleep because my mind keeps chattering away on things like philosophy or science. to stop it doing that i usually try and make up some type of situation in my head and think about how i would deal with it. for instance if zombies were attacking how would i secure my house to keep them out. i'm not talking about complex schematics, just what windows i would board up, what exits i would make etc. thinking about silly things like that lets my brain change gears and quieten down, and it keeps your focus off trying to deliberately fall asleep.

I have gone full nights where i'll be trying to sleep and have my eyes closed then its time to go to work and i open my eyes like i was conscious the whole night feeling like i barely slept. When this happens i feel slightly like i slept, and better than if i had stayed up all night with my eyes open, but nothing like getting a true sleep.
To me a full sleep is when i feel groggy in the morning and its hard to get up because i slept so well but i feel very refreshed.

I feel like i've tried everything but don't want to take sleeping pills or anything like that. Maybe exercises or things you think about to help you transition into a deep sleep? Maybe even positional sleeping positions that may help? I need to figure out a way to be able to get to sleep when i want to. Its real bad if i have something important to do the next day and lack of sleep really hurts my functioning.

Seriously, smoke up a little. I don't smoke weed during the day any more, but a few hits from a pipe is a great way to relax before bed.

Jerk off, but prolong it. When you feel like you're going to come, hold back a few times for a bigger orgasm at the end. You should be plenty tired then to sleep with no problem.

Sudoku's.

Just get a book from a newstand. I find when I'm doing them in bed my mind just shuts off after a while and then I either drift off and wake up a bit later to turn my light off and sleep. Or I catch myself drifting and turn it off and sleep right away.

melatonin or nyquil for the nights i want to be out cold, but usually to fall asleep i will usually put on a tv show to play for a couple episodes on my computer. usually arrested development or it's always sunny in philadelphia. after about 5-10 minutes of watching it i'll roll over and just listen, i find it very relaxing. i actually have a hard time falling asleep if there is no noise.

I have the same problem as miller time.

Basically you gotta implement something to drain your nervous system earlier in the day. Either extensive studying or exercising or f*cking or something man. The 16+ hours you are awake should consist of something other than stimulating your mind with screens which most people engage in. Inject some alcohol into your life if you got to as rezzonor pointed out.

Glass of warm milk (casein) and a banana (tryptophan) should help a lot.

Ice baths calm you down too, in addition to hot showers.

Meditation techniques as mentioned before. Pranic breathing is where you inhale for 3 seconds, hold (oxygenate blood, and exhale for 5.

Try reading a dry azz book like The Autobiography of Meticode or To Kill a Nothingbird and try to focus on the details.

That movie Little Fockers had a scene where Owen Wilson pinches the lil tykes neck and he falls asleep talkin' bout how he relaxes the flow of CSF fluid or something. WTF? dats bullsh!t but if someone can verify dat id be please.
