I find the general tips are quite good, like dark room, writing, reading, etc. There is also the possibility that you are so exhausted that your whole body just want to lay there and fall asleep, but you've reached a point where your mind just won't because the exhaustion. Sometimes you keep thinking about falling asleep and when you don't, you think about it even more; and that keeps you're brain active, then you get frustrated about it, and at that point, it is very very hard to fall asleep. Over the counter sleep aid, or prescription would help, even a painkiller would help to relax your mind. In my case a simple beer while watching tv before bed quiets my brain, but it rarely happens to me. Personally, light in my room does not bother my sleep, and tv on but very low volume or a fan turned on does not bother me as well, it blocks out the outside noise. Also it depends if you are a heavy or light sleeper, if you have insomnia or if it's just one of those nights. Most often than not, it's on our minds, I know people that drink a beer or take sleep aid every night after work because it "puts them to sleep", however, I think they have already influenced themselves into believing they "need it". Just try not to rely on "sleep aids" of any kind on a regular basis.

Is it something simple like are you staying up too late for too long throwing off your biological sleeping clock? Or are you eating heavy late night snacks? Or is your mind wondering thinking about problems?

When I can't sleep, I try the relaxing method that the lorica on its CDs for hypnosis that usually puts me to write to sleep! Just relax and let your mind relax concentrate on different parts your body tell him to relax eventually you will be sound asleep

I always use this method also and it always amazes me how well it works.  I like this method because it is natural and requires no drugs or medication of any kind which can have harmful side effects or become addictive.

I have tried the melatoin and it doesn't seem to help I think I might need a higher dose I was taking 2 mg.

    Avoid caffeinated drinks and yes! visit your local pharmacy for OTC (over-the-counter) medicines because they really work.

I used to get that, but I am fine now. I found that reading a book before sleeping really helped because I personally hate reading. Reading makes me very bored and sleepy; especially when I am laying down. I think that a quiet environment really helps too. Maybe you should listen to natural sounds such as rain and oceans.

My cure is usually a nice long hot shower.

If you do happen to overcome your sleep problem using any of the previous advice, even if just for a few days, I would suggest trying to wake up a bit earlier than normal, perhaps an hour or two; you should feel more exhausted by the time that your ideal sleeping time comes which will help you fall asleep immediately, or much easier.
