In brief: Of course!

I know people that are very successful making themselves do silly things like that!

In brief: Sleep Hygiene

Our body likes routine, stability.
If you change that by staying up, you will experience sleep disturbances. To get back on track, create a bed time routine -- warm showers, room should be on a slightly cooler side; no tv, no computer. Learn relaxation exercises to help put your body in a "i'm sleepy mode" :). Don't use your bedroom as your office.
