Consider hypnosis: If you are concerned about addiction to drugs for insomnia you should learn about hypnotherapy. It is something anyone can learn, takes just a session or two & can cure insomnia without using medication at all. Find a qualified psychologist to help you learn how hypnosis can help.

Simple things 1st: Improve your sleep hygiene. Use your bed for sleeping and sex only. Establish a bedtime and stick to it. If you're not sleeping, get up and do something else. No caffeine after (noon, say). Try an herbal tea and relaxation exercises at bedtime. (pm yoga). A warm bath. Calm down and unwind. Nothing too stimulating as you ease into sleep. No liquor. It distorts sleep architecture. Sweet dreams!
