    So I usually smoke before sleep as I have troubles with sleeping, anxiety and ocd. 
    However for 2 weeks, almost everynight I wake up at around 5-7 a.m from nothing and find it difficult to go back to sleep. 
     Is it possible that weed may be the cause of this?

  2. Could be your age. Us older guys need less sleep. Go ahead, get something...make breakfast for the up on the Walking Dead....use the now free time. Its not a tradgedy ...

    You said "middle of the night...? 5 to 7 am? Thats getting reday for work time for most....
  3. Yes... Happens to me too. I often just smoke more and everything is fine lol
  4. Maybe it's just your body telling your lazy ass to get out of bed.
    Where I live 5-7AM is NOT the middle of the night.
    As far as the other reply saying it might be your age, I didn't read you saying you were an old person.
  5. missing an important detail there op... when do u fall asleep
  6. I smoke strong indicas and i sleep like a baby. Sometimes i wake up on sativas. I really wake up when I am sober. It's 335am. I went to bed at 11pm and woke up at 130am and I am wide awake. I hate this.
  7. I've actually noticed this too in the past weeks, but I also moved my whole bedroom into another room in the house so it might be that I'm sleeping in a new space.

  8. You are probably getting a deeper sleep and do not need as many hours.  Make the most of it....
    Go to the gym...
    Start a blog.....
    Write a book......
    Learn a language.....
    So much can be done with an extra hour or two a day!   :hello:
  9. Just be glad you're not diabetic waking up every 2-3 hours. I need to smoke to get any decent sleep. So aggravating and I feel like it makes me weaker than I should be. 26 and I feel 56 getting up some times.
  10. Sometimes happens if your dehydrated from my experience.

    Best buds for life.
  11. It happens because your high wears off. You use weed to sleep, so once you get really high and fall asleep that's no issue. Your body is used to that, but once you are in that deep REM sleep and the high wears off there's nothing keeping you asleep so you wake up. Of course once you smoke you have no issues going back to bed...
    The same is very true for alcoholics like myself lol.
    I get drunk about every night and when I fall asleep I get a solid 8 hours of sleep (9p-5a) but it's not like 'real sleep', it's just a period of unconsciousness, so I *never* feel fully rested. Once I take a shot or two I have no issues going back to bed.
    The only thing I can say is to stop smoking weed before bed, because it's only going to get worse...

    Sleep is all in the mind! You really only need a few hours everyday to be functional :) I am a manic and sleep means nothing to me. I can sleep 2 hours and be fine for 2 days, but other days I need 14 hours of sleep to work a single 8 hour shift. I have been up for days on end with endless energy and other times I only sleep for days...
    I have learned over time that sleep is all in the mind. If you don't think you're tired, you're not tired... I guess I've done it so much over the years that I've adapted, but I can easily stay up 24-48 hours and be fine.
  13. Sleep is required after so long. So it isn't necessarily all in your head.
  14. The OP hasn't been to the `City in two weeks, guess he went to sleep.
