Bath_VIP, I feel for you. Some suggestions, in order of effectiveness:

1: A slow end to the evening, and chamomile tea
2: 5-7 drops (no more) of lavender oil on the temples
3: Aromatherapy Associates’ Deep Relax oil (superb stuff, a colleague uses it to take the edge off her son’s ADHD)
4: A relaxing bath with the AADR oil
5: Let’s be crude but realistic -a w*nk (I know you use audio software to read this so I hope the message comes across, as it were!)
6: Sex
7: Sleeping pills

Also, work out which night affects you most. For me, generally, I survive for two days on adrenaline and willpower (oh, alright, sheer bloodymindedness) and it all goes horribly wrong on day three. So then I use sleeping pills. Proper medical ones, which I can get in HK without a prescription. But only for three consecutive days – a self-imposed and absolute limit

But options 5 and 6 are more fun…
