I caution against using drugs or anything that is not natural to fix your sleep problems. If you take something like Ambien, you could easily grow your risk of dependency. After a while, you will need two Ambien just to be able to go to sleep. The risk of dependency is too high. While Ambien or Lunesta will certainly help you get to sleep initially, after a while you will become dependent on it on order to get to sleep. It would be much better if you could have the same effect without the risk of dependency.
The same thing goes with alcohol. I would strongly advise you not to consumer alcohol, especially if you are doing it just to get to sleep. Alcohol is bad for you in general, and if you are doing it so you can sleep better, it’s just going to be that more dangerous. For the same reasons that I say not to take sleeping pills, you should similarly avoid alcohol as a means to sleep better.
You should just try to do natural things to sleep better and change your lifestyle. If you look at your phone before bed, then you can simply cut that out of your lifestyle in order to start sleeping better. You don’t need a pill to do that or any sort of drug. You can try to decrease your stress by going for walks more. Stress is a big sleep killer and really gets in the way of having a great night of sleep. It is also a big cause of insomnia. If there are more natural ways to decrease stress, like drinking tea, going for walks, and meditating, then you should take advantage of those things. Decreasing your stress naturally will go a long way to allowing you to sleep better.
You will find that a lot of the natural ways to improve your sleep are just great for you health overall. If you can start sleeping better as a result, then your health will generally improve as well.
