What time do you wake up during the Night.

This might not last long but thought that I would mention it to see if others maybe have the same problem.

I seem to have a sleeping problem when I wake up during the night.

I look at my watch and it quite often it is at 4.20 am.

The same time keeps popping up which I thought was unusual but it seems I am not the only one that wakes up at that time.

My problem is when I see that time on my watch it makes me wonder why and its a waste of time going back to bed as there is no chance of getting back to sleep.

A bit bored so decided to google What happened at 4.20am. And sure enough a chap on one of the forums with the same problem and same time.

And yes you have guessed it I was up at 4.20 am today again.

Maybe we might have a remedy for doing away with our sleepless nights.

I tried BT's remedy of eating cheese and crackers before going to bed and it seamed to have worked.

I had two double cream crackers with cheese about 9 pm last night but never went to bed till 15 minutes past 12 this morning and never got up till 4.30 then back to bed and never woke up till 8am.

Cant remember the last time I had such a good sleep.

A few facts that may have helped was there was no wind, no rain hitting off the windows and it was Saturday and no cars starting up at 5am to take drivers to work.

But I will be trying the cream crackers tonight again and hope for the same result.

A couple of large brandies seems more appealing to me than a plate of Jacobs.

My take on sleep and getting to sleep.

No alcohol, I go to sleep within a few minutes of my head hitting the pillow. With alcohol, it takes a while to get to sleep and the sleep is light & disturbed.

With a little food, I sleep for between 3 to 4 hours before getting up for a visit to the loo. Without food, I sleep for about 2.5 hours before waking.

The snack before bed.

Bread, not Chorleywood type, with cheese, peanut butter, Bovril. Not jam, as I am diabetic, although my Specialist said that I could if I spread it very, very, thinly. Fruit appears to be ineffective, although a banana sometimes does the trick.

Bread, not Chorleywood type

A strange thing to write, what do you mean? a lot of my family live there.

"The so-called Chorleywood Bread Process (CBP), invented in 1961 and now used to make most industrial bread, has turned out to be a culinary and digestive disaster. "

How some modern bread is made.

Thanks for the explanation Pablo. I am pleased to confirm they are not bakers.

There was a Research Facility in Chorley Wood.

There was a Research Facility in Chorley Wood.

Do you mean Chorleywood in Hertfordshire which I do or somewhere else.
