Melatonin supplements help many individuals overcome their insomnia, which is why people who have trouble falling asleep should try these natural pills. Another thing individuals with sleep problems may want to do is quit smoking if they are tobacco users, since a recent study conducted by researchers at the Charite Berlin medical school in Germany found that smokers get fewer hours of sleep and have a less restful sleep than non-smokers.
Reuters reported on the study, which found that of 1,100 smokers surveyed, 17 percent got less than six hours of sleep each night and 28 percent have poor rest quality. According to the researchers, while this doesn't prove that smoking causes insomnia, it's strong evidence that there is a connection to the stimulant effects of nicotine and poor sleep.
"If you smoke and you do suffer from sleep problems, it is another good reason to quit smoking," said researcher Stefan Cohrs, M.D., quoted by the news source.
WebMD has some tips to help people quit smoking. First, the medical website recommends not to go full turkey, since nicotine is addictive and the body should be eased off of it. Also, try some of the many nicotine-replacement therapy options, such as gums and patches.
