Good luck both getting off, and finding another sleep-induction

so you're in a damned if you do, damned if you don't double bind if
you can't get some sleep in a less cuckoo-making way.

My policy is to trust my own experience in deciding what helps and
what hurts.

Doesn't matter how many degrees someone else has, or how wonderful
their professional reputation is -- they don't know -beans- about YOUR
individual, idiosyncratic system, and if they don't listen and respond
to your own evaluation of the effects of something they've advised you
to take, then they are not to be trusted as a prescriber, IMO.

system,

If you've given up caffeine and still can't sleep, have you thought of the
effects of the computer screen?  Bright lights can interfere with your sleep
cycle.  You might try not using the computer after sunset.  That could be
harder to give up than caffeine.  :^)

or two off from some heavy brain-changers, like cocaine.<

My internist warned me that he's heard of it having adverse effects on memory.
I have definitely cut back on my Diet Coke habit, but need to give it up
entirely.

Re: OT: Pharmaceutical Side Effects
If bubbly drinks are something hard to give up, try switching to one
of the brands sweetened with sucralose (Splenda) instead of aspartame
(Nutrasweet). RC makes a line of fruit flavors as well as cola, and
Hansen has a sugar-free line as well. Very tasty, and not as
potentially dangerous.

I'm allergic to NS and saccharine.  I recently tried Splenda and got sick
from that too. <sigh> I used to do fine with cyclamates though, doesn't that
just figure! I read a while back that they finally were cleared of the bad
rap they got in the 70's but the reputation is still there so nobody's using
it. Guess I'll stick to water and unsweetened iced tea.

Be glad that cyclamates aren't around any more.  I was in the Netherlands a
few years ago, and their Diet Coke was sweetened with cyclamates. OMG.

Talk about foul!  I had to spit out the mouthful I had, and pour the rest of
that very, very expensive Diet Coke down the nearest drain.

When in Europe, I buy my Diet Cokes at the drink mart or drink bottled water.

Re: OT: Pharmaceutical Side Effects an alternate to sugar etc
There is a nice, refreshing alternative to sugar laden sodas or artificially
sweetened stuff. My sis put me on to it. Take a bottle of tonic water or
club soda and mix it with frozen fruit juice concentrate. Voila! No cane
sugar, no funky weird substitute to worry about!

And there is a great use for bananas that get bruised if you're not going to
make bread. Freeze them, no matter how black, and then add milk, a little
vanilla and sugar for a banana milkshake without the ice cream. Yum yum!
Sometimes I add pineapple or whatever other fruit is available. Excellent
low-fat treat!

Those of you who get migraines, remember that bananas can cause them.  (I know
-- I was shocked too.)

Re: OT: Pharmaceutical Side Effects an alternate to sugar etc
I can get them from bananas if I eat too much.  I think that they have one of
the B
vitamins in them?  There is a B vitamin that gives me migraines if i have too
much of
it, too...I'm thinking B-12, but I'm not certain, it's been a long time since I
had B
specific supplements.

froze it in cubes? Marachino cherrys in ice...in a tall frosty glass..

ROFL, the first time I EVER got drunk was from eating the frozen
strawberries from a pure grain punch. I didn't want to drink but the berries
looked so good. My guy laughingly told me later that there was more alcohol
in the fruit (absorbed while it thawed) than in the punch itself. Bam!

I agree, Sarajane.  And now there are so many alternatives to soft drinks that
have Nutrasweet and other faux sweeteners.  (I usually drink water)
