      What food/drink helps you sleep?

      I have milk and honey before bed and that seems to work most of the time.

      When I was young, my older relatives always told me to never eat a big meal before going asleep because you'd have nightmares. Well, that's just some ignorant myth that I've personally proved wrong. Infact, I like to stuff myself, workout, shower then got to asleep. I dont know what it is, but after I eat a good meal, I get drowsey and easily fall asleep.

      I also find that masturbation works very well for me, the longer i haven't masturbated for the more tired it makes me

      Does masturbation make anyone else tired?

      yea because the orgasm releases a lot of chemicals from the brain. serotonin being one of them which really affects whether you are tired or not.

      and the longer you go without, usually the bigger load you blow haha.

      True true.

      i usually drink a bottle of water, or a big glass before i go to bed. Then during rem i usually wake up, walk to the bathroom dead pretending to take a whizz, then as soon as i lay down i immediatly go back to sleep fully aware, then bingo i have a lucid dreamin

      Any more than that I get a buzz and want to start partying.

      Usually anything warm and milky as well, because it's comforting and snuggly.

      Carbs before bed is good. Not protein because that can stimulate you. A banana is good.
      For drink, herbal tea is always good especially chamomile.

      I also read eating a little bowl of cereal before bed is good.

      Yeh i read up ages ago about carbs help you sleep along with foods rich in tryptophan and protein foods keep you awake but i want to know what foods and drink help you sleep.

      Also on the alcohol it helps you get to sleep but a few hours after sleep the alcohol wakes up your brain and can give you trouble staying asleep.

      Turkey is full of tryptophan! I know because I did science project for school on it.

      Peppermint tea, chamomile tea, hibiscus tea help you relax. I've found that both peppermint and hibiscus induce vivid dreams.

      Oh yea--from my mom's experience she said eating a baked potato before bed knocked her out. I forgot what it has, I'll ask her.

      Serotonin is converted in to melatonin, when your eyes (retina) stop getting the stimulation from the natural lights...

      Thus, eating anything with much serotonin in it, could help you sleep...

      I do think cucumber is high in 5ht (serotonin) ...

      Either way, it is the melatonin one want.

      Food/Drink to help with dreams

      This might end up being quite long because it is something I have been experimenting with!

      I personally take 3 Kalms (not sure if they are available in the US but they are available in the UK online) before I go to bed, and I get a minimum of 2-3 lucids using my WILD technique of making a ball of fire then moving inside it when I close my eyes. Kalms are designed to relax you and help promote natural sleep.

      I've also had a lot of good experiences with hot chocolate. Possibly like someone said earlier because it's comforting and snuggly. Although I find that Chocolate Horlicks tastes a lot nicer and that it's far better for sleep inducement.

      Now...as for the Tryophan or whatever it is called (sorry...autistic and have terrible recall for unfamiliar words) yes, Turkey does have it, but only in small quantities I believe. However, Pumpkin seeds have a lot of Tryophan and also some other chemical which the body readily turns into Seratonin. But if you're interested in Melatonin, you can easily buy Melatonin at health food shops which sell these kinds of things. I've certainly seen them online.

      As for those who want to use alcohol to get to sleep, I have found the best thing for helping me sleep was a little (2 shot) bottle of Drambuie. Knocked me out big time. I think two shots were a little too much because I had problems recalling my dreams when I drank that much. Maybe one shot of this stuff would be good. Also had very good dreams on Amaretto.

      As for masturbation, I personally find that it helps me sleep but stuffs up the quality of my dreams and also screws up my dream recall. But I do find that if I bunch up my duvet a little and lean against it, I can fall asleep effortlessly.
