    Guilty. No joke I wake up in the mornings like "what the hell, I didn't text this!" or "what did I even type??". It's pretty funny!

    I'm curious if the sleep texts make any sense at all, or if they are just a bunch of gibberish like drunk texts.

    I have an idea how to avoid doing this. It's called, turn the damn thing off and keep it out of your room!

    Unfortunately, teens and 20 somethings won't understand that. They think every minute of their lives is important.

    I saw a show where they were talking about sleep deprivation in young people due to this issue.They had a teen on there and they found out it was the phone causing them issues but still wanted to keep it on all night regardless of the ill side effects of poor sleep.

    In a lot of ways I'm glad I didn't have this issue with mobile phones when growing up.

    My sleep texts sometimes make sense. Most of the time though its like I see what I was trying to say, but I executed it very poorly. Very similar to drunk texting. lol

    Well my phone is my alarm clock but I also keep it on for emergencies. I have a sleeping disorder so I don't sleep often already (this is before I even got a cell phone). What basically happens to me, I don't fall asleep easily, I can't just close my eyes at the end of the day and sleep, it takes hours for me to fall asleep if I even do. There are some nights I just lay there. When I am "asleep" though I do not reach full REM like ever. So my mind is still active and it basically functions as a light nap, which is probably why I am able to respond to texts. Don't get me wrong, this is not from my phone, ive had this probably well before I had a smartphone. I use my phone and tablet as a way to pass time until I am able to fall asleep. Very hard to explain, but I've done dozens of studies at different hospitals and they all say the same thing.

    I haven't been personally involved in any tests myself but I was with someone who did. On top of that I've seen many shows and read a few articles on sleep. Most common factor in poor sleep is that people don't let themselves turn off from the world prior to sleep, poor routine. Second is having stimlants prior to sleep. Third is bed and pillow combination.

    I have a bit of sleeping issue but it's mostly due to sinus problems and pain. Both of which I'm working on fixing.

    I believe mine is a combination of sinus, eating late (which I can't help because I school and work from 7am to 10pm so I have to eat at some point), and staring at screens all day (like I said school and work 7am to 10pm). When I was younger and first started having issues, it was because I was in my programming phase where I would spend every day of every week trying to self teach myself how to program (like 14yo at the time so it took much longer lol) but now its something I can't really do anything about. Now I need to apply for medicinal! ;D lol
