Only a Few Hours of Sleep. Asap(need Sleepif I Can)

Practicaly everynight I get 4-5 hours of sleep. I try and try, but I just cant sleep. Just lay there in bed. Are there any methods to falling asleep easier (and longer)? With no medication, or doctor visits... I am having some family problems and am thinking about just moving away from everything, but I cant... What can I do?

Supposedly this can be caused from many many things. Im going on a while now without any sleep, though I am trying to see just how far I can go. I've been sleeping maybe 3-1 hour a night for maybe a month or 2 now. You arent alone at least! :)

You have to observe sleep hygiene to overcome this problem.
