Male, 29y/o, single here. Didn't consult doctor about this issue because in my country, seeing a psychologist is very rare.
My history is,
I'm an alcoholic 5 years back, and able to control my drinking problem very well since 6 months ago.
I'm a smoker 7 years back, and change to be social smoker since 6 months ago too. (1-2 stick on occasion)
Diagnosed with Genital Warts 8 months back, free from warts for 30 days already.
Moderate depression after notice i have warts, able to get over it since 3 months ago.
Exercise and gym regularly, 3-4 times a week. (guess this cure the warts)
When i was young, i have already find my self very hard to fall asleep at night.
This sleeping habit get worse in my 20's... but i have found solution to it... alcohol!
I always drunk my self to sleep. Excessive alcohol consumption to make me that sleepy.
After self realization, i stop making my self drunk, and the problem get a little worse.
In the bedtime moment, my mind is always so colorful with alot of creative ideas and thinkings and i cant find my self sleepy. I could "only" able to fall asleep between 6am-7am.
Once i fall asleep, Calling/yelling or alarm can't stop my sweet sleeping time. And always wake up around 3pm-5pm. This goes repetitive everyday.
So... I try to adjust my sleeping pattern. I skip sleeping and force my self to work and go thru the whole day. Sleepy in the morning and afternoon. When i reach home on evening (7pm), my eyes are wide awake.
Even thou sometimes i came home sleepy, I slept at 9pm/10pm, but i "always" wake up middle of the nite at maybe 1am/3am/5am. And fall back deep sleep at 6am/7am. And the repetitive goes on.
I have try sleeping in friends place or hotel for a week. Still same result.
BTW, able to sleep when the sun rise because I'm doing own business, so my staff works in the normal hour and i work in the abnormal hour (night time).
And can you believe this, i always run half marathon with 1 hour sleep or no sleeps at all...
I can't understand, even living in a healthy lifestyle (gym and running), this problem still persist. I really need help to make a stop on this and i really want to life in a normal life.
This sleeping habit gave me a mild depression seriously... just so fed up of my self.
Tried warm milk, read book, change room, stop using internet/computer at night time, sleep in dark room or bright room. Problem still persist.
