I don't have a problem sleeping.  Once I lay down takes less than 10 minutes.

For me it varies.  Most of the time I fall asleep okay.  However, I usually need a tv or a radio on.  It is hard for me to fall asleep with pure silence.
Several years ago I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea. The biggest problem I have though is not necessarily falling asleep.  It is staying asleep continually all night.
Many times, I will fall asleep and wake up 2 -3 hours later.  Then I will fall asleep again after an hour or two and go into a real deep sleep where I wake up later than I planned.

This however, does not happen too much.  Usually I average about 4 -5 hours a night though it is not continual as a rule.

If im anxious about something or i have something important the next day it takes me hours to get to sleep

It varies for me. Usually I will read till I can't focus on the words then shut my light out. but if my husband is grumbling because of the light and makes me turn it out I'll lay there for hours sometimes trying to fall asleep.

I am usually awake for about 15 minutes before falling asleep. Listening to music helps me fall asleep.

I have found that if I want to fall asleep the answer for me is to try reading, lol I usually don't make it through 1 chapter!

It really depends. Lately I've been getting tired super early at like 7 pm so its not hard for me to fall aslee. Maybe half an hour at most. But on my really bad nights I can be tossing and turning literally for hours until I just give up.

Same here, I rarely have trouble going to sleep - would have to have something seriously troubling my mind or have significant back pain, otherwise I usually pretty much fall right to sleep.

Unless I'm particularly tired, it usually takes me a moderate amount of time to fall asleep. I'd estimate 30 to 45 minutes.
