Anything will help you fall asleep, if you believe that it will.

I once gave my kid brother a harmless vitamin pill and told him, “Take this sleeping pill, and you’ll be out like a light, in nothing flat.”

He believed it was a sleeping pill, took it, and within a few minutes, he was sawing some logs.

No, warm milk is pukalicious!

My solution to getting to sleep is: energy drinks!
Really, all you have to do is take a small amount – it will buzz you quick. It will also wear off soon, too. While you feel wide awake from the energy drink, burn yourself out – do something very physically or mentally active. By the time the energy drink wears off, you will want to be in bed!

You’re right. I give energy drinks to women all the time, and they WANT to be in bed, as soon as it wears off.

It’s never failed me yet…

Warm milk always works for me. Even cold milk. Could be the placebo effect as JackAdams implies.

If you are led to believe something is factual, you will believe it, and the placebo effect will indeed work.

How many times have kids all over America felt much better, after Mommy kissed their “owie?”
