    Hi Everyone, it’s been just over a year now since I took Martin’s course to help overcome my insomnia. When I first approached him I was in a terrible state and sometimes going for 2 or 3 nights with hardly any sleep. Following Martin’s ideas closely brought me back to a normal sleep pattern in around 2 weeks! I’m so happy and grateful that I took the course. If you’re undecided about getting started I would strongly encourage you to get going. It’s worth every penny!

    Did you do the sleep restriction part of the programme?

    Hi Helen, yes I did. That is a vital part of getting back to normal. I think one of the reasons insomnia develops is by developing bad habits. Sticking religiously to the suggestions in the course helps to re train the mind and body to achieve a proper sleep pattern.

    Thanks Phil. I tried about a month ago to do the sleep restriction on my own, managed 10 nights with variable results but stopped as it seemed to be taking a long time for me to reach over 85 percent efficiency to enable me to start bringing my bedtime forward. I feel like I’m OK with the thoughts/thinking side of things (I just don’t think of anything when I go to bed but can still be awake the whole night ?) so need to focus on building sleep drive.

    I’ve done the free stuff but not any paid. I found the emails really useful and the information on here great. But whilst I’ve improved its very up and down and this week is more down, regressed pretty much?

    Helen, from all I have read, and my own experience, it can take much more than 10 days. I’m on day 15 and just starting to see a positive trend. Some people take much longer, depending on how long they’ve had issues.

    Agreed on the point regarding how long it can take. I’ve had insomnia for 27 years and it’s probably not too realistic to expect (for me) results in just a few weeks.

    It is so refreshing to hear everyone’s story. It can be utterly deflating to deal with this. I’m grateful to all of you.
