Does anyone else have a problem sleeping after playing poker, It has to be me or something about the buzz but i just can't sleep. I been advised to see the doctor and get some pills but i am reluctant to do that as i am against pills or any drugs.

But if anyone does and knows anything grateful for the advice

Yeah,most players cant sleep right after playing (me included).
I'm usually watching a movie or something else after playing and then I'm sleeping.
So just end your session 30 min - 1 hour before you plan on sleeping,watch some TV or something like that in that time and then it should work

Hey tox, it happens to me too sometimes. Last night I played for two hours and got three vicious bad beats that upset me and made it hard to fall asleep. Like you I avoid medication if at all possible, especially sleep pills which I have never taken for fear of becoming dependant on them.

Two things help me fall asleep: My favourite is to simply get up, grab a beer, sit down and watch a little mindless television and relax. Normally after 30 minutes I am ready to sleep. The other thing I do is when I am lying down I picture something very peaceful: I remember some of the times that I have been fishing out on the lake, the water is a perfect mirror and the water clear, and the sun is nice and warm but the fish aren't biting. GL with the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Sleepy

Yeah, I recognize this problem. When I have got further than expected in a tournament, and it drags on 'til the wee hours, it's not that easy to go to sleep, bad beat or not.

I usually read for half an hour or so, and it works out. But if you are thinking about pills, I guess that won't help you...

Getting drunk works exellent. Although, my wife says I talk about poker in some language she doesn't understand, when I have been playing drunk. How she knows it's about poker, when she doesn't understand the language, _I_ do not understand. But there it is...

Yep, same with me.
Sometimes I am lying in the bed and just thinking of several hands...
What did I wrong..., why I played it this way etc...
But yesterday it was the other way round.
I layed down on my sofa, played a freeroll and felt asleep why playing it, lol.

No problems here, maybe you don't have long enough sessions Tongue

I mean after a 4 or more tables to hours session you are really tiread and i bet you can go to sleep very fast without any pills Blink

Since more mobsters say have the same problem then it must be true but i think you should do something else, do not take pills, are really bad for liver...

Yes i had that problem in the past.
I couldnt stop thinking of the game, in terms of right and wrong play and it was very difficult
for me to sleep.
After some time the problem was getting even harder and i stopped playing for a week to take my mind away of it.
After that i manage my play this way so most of the times i have like 2 hours ahead before going to sleep.

playing poker for long hours can be demanding on the mind and you have to keep staring at screen for so long , so take short breaks in between.
and quit 1 hr before your usual sleeping time. maybe it'll help
