One study showed that nine out of 10 insonmiacs had be- come drug dependent and it was necessary to wean them from the sleeping pills before the ability to get to sleep could be improved. ~Ahat are the causes of sleeplessness? Those with consistent sleep problems us- ually are filled with either anxiety or anger or a com- bination of the two emotions. It can be concern about a job, the family, finances or any of the host of problems that are so abundant in modern life. It can be anger that the per- son often fail~ to recognize, anger that is not expressed and therefore conducive to a troublesome build up. Almost everyone will have occasional difficulty in ~un- winding" enough after a troublesome day or in anti- cipation of problems tomor- row to enable sleep to come easily. If the person begins to worry about the inability to get to sleep, then sleep is even more difficult to achieve. What should you do about sleeplessness? The obvious: talk out your problems and feelings with a trusted friend. If your problems and feelings are especially intense, dis- cuss them with your physician who might recommend that a psychiatrist would be most helpful. The worst thing you can do is to do nothing about the causes and to take pills to try to hide the symptoms.
