Mine is a nice cold Modello with a good Cuban cigar (Romeo y Julietas).

What are you partial too?

Sam Adams here. I usually have at least one variety pack in the fridge at all times. There is also always wine in the house, both red and white. Usually either Pinot Grigio or Chianti.
Nice. My wife is a huge Pino Grigio from a winery called Grape Creek Vineyards so it's always stocked. Sam Adams is an excellent choice.

I usually go with a beer as I'm not a fan of Wine or Liquor. Right now I have some Sam Adams Summer Ale and Boulevard Wheat Unfiltered beer.

After a hot day in the yard, I'm an IPA guy. Ballast Point Sculpin, Cigar City Jai Alai, Founders All Day IPA if I'm looking for something a little lighter. They're are plenty more I love, but those are the standbys that I know I can depend on.

Very nice. I recently began drinking IPA's. I tried a single Sierra Nevada's torpedo extra. Wasnt too shaby.

I used to have Crown and diet coke waiting for me. But when it's so hot outside, it just didn't cool me off. So I switched to just water because my youngest son who is 7 now, would bring me a glass of water while I was outside all the time. Out of the 5 people in the house, all considerably older than him, he was the only one who thought, "Geez, dad might need some water right about now" But now, I just grab a cold Dos Equis! Kill the first bottle within 30 seconds and then reach for the next while sitting in the garage trying to cool off.

Sounds like you raised him right! Good going son!

I prefer a nice cold Yuengling. I haven't found an IPA that I like. Perhaps that means that I need to sample more, but I have to be careful with my intake of alcohol. It doesn't jive well with some of the meds that I take every now and then.

I had some blood work done the other day and my GGT level (liver)is way out of range. It should be between 9 - 64. Mine was at 300. So for the past 3 weeks, I have cut my alcohol intake down from 7 days a week to 2 days. I'm gonna try to make it 1 day starting this week.

The bad thing about not drinking during the week is that I can't ever go to sleep. I'm never tired enough to go to sleep.
Copy and paste of a resource for improving sleep hygiene. This is sound, if general, information.

sleeping advice

sleep only as much as you need to feel refreshed during the following day: Restricting your time in bed helps to consolidate and deepen your sleep. Routinely spending an excessively long time in bed leads to fragmented and shallow sleep. Get up at your regular time the next day, no matter how little you slept.

get up at the same time each day, seven days a week: A regular wake time in the morning leads to regular times of sleep onset, and helps to set your "biological clock."

exercise regularly: Exercise makes it easier to initiate sleep and it helps to deepen sleep. Try not to exercise within 3 hours of bedtime, unless you know this doesn't matter for you.

make sure your bedroom is comfortable and free from disturbing light & noise: A comfortable, noise-free sleep environment will reduce the likelihood that you will wake up during the night. Noise that does not awaken you may also disturb the quality of your sleep. Carpeting, insulated curtains, and closing the door may help. Background white noise may block out other potentially disturbing noises.

make sure your bedroom is at a comfortable temperature during the night: Excessively warm or cold sleep environments may disturb sleep.

eat regular meals & do not go to bed hungry: Hunger may disturb sleep. A slight snack at bedtime (especially carbohydrates) may help sleep, but avoid greasy or "heavy" foods.

avoid excessive liquids in the evening: Reducing liquid intake will minimize the need for nighttime trips to the bathroom.

cut down on all caffeine products: Caffeinated beverages and foods (coffee, tea, cola, chocolate) can cause difficulty falling asleep, awakenings during the night, and shallow sleep. Even caffeine early in the day can disrupt nighttime sleep for some people.

avoid alcohol, especially in the evening: Although alcohol helps tense people to fall asleep more easily, it causes awakenings later in the night.

smoking may disturb sleep: Nicotine is a stimulant. Try not to smoke during the night when you have trouble sleeping.

don't take your problems to bed: Plan some time earlier in the evening for working on your problems or planning the next day's activities. Worrying may interfere with initiating sleep and produce shallow sleep.

train yourself to use the bedroom only for sleeping & sexual activity: This will help condition your brain to see bed as a place for sleeping. Do not watch TV, or eat in bed.

do not try to fall asleep: This only makes the problem worse. Instead, turn on the light, leave the bedroom, and do something different such as reading a book. Don't engage in stimulating activity. Return to bed only when you are sleepy.

put the clock under the bed or turn it so that you can't see it: Clock watching may lead to frustration, anger and worry, which interfere with sleep.

avoid naps: Staying awake during the day helps you to fall asleep at night.

To elaborate on Socials information, have you tried to take something natural like Melatonin?
