    Don't get back on the computer.

    Seriously though, I turn on a fan. The white noise is soothing and it cools the air in the room. 9 times out of 10 I can't sleep because it's too warm, even if I'm not hot.

    I also do the counting back from 100 bit, but not aloud. If you don't go fast and let each number represent a second ( "100...99...98.."), I never make it (that I remember) past 80.

    When I was a kid I used to sing in my head "Colors of the Wind". I never made it to the end of the song.
    "But every night, when it gets dark
    and the stars come out,
    I'll look up on her behalf.
    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

    I use Ambien CR. 12.75 mg a night.

    After taking it, I have one of two choices:

    1) Go to bed IMMEDIATELY

    2) Stay up for a while and let some hypnagogic hallucinations start kicking in telling me that maybe I should get to sleep instead before it does the work for me.

    Worst case scenario--One night of poor sleep will not totally ruin your day. It has happened to me several times. Usually I am ok the next day.
    I have read (and heard) that resting (if you can't sleep) is almost as good.

    Take 2 Benadryls and a Tylenol PM. Wash down with a shot of whiskey. You will sleep like a baby.

    Ambien and Vicodin are a good combination too!

    Seriously though, just relax in your bed, turn off the light and keep your room cool.

    I second the fan. It also helps a ton if you have noisy housemates or neighbors, pets, anything by completely drowning out the recognizable noise.
