... I learned at one of my meetings that is is hardest for addicts of opiates to get back to sleeping normally b/c of what the stuff does to your body & mind, helping you sleep. Now that you don't have the stuff in your system, the natural way your body/mind knew how to sleep doesn't remember how to work... you have to get that part of your body/mind working again.
