I am such a rebel... I tried to stop taking the honey. I decided I didn't need it. I decided it was too much sugar.
I'm a believer in the honey now!
I think it's good to start slow with it- just a teaspoon or two- but then I think it's important to work up to the recommended dose. The effects seemed to wear off, which is one reason why I decided to stop taking it. For a couple of nights, a teaspoon didn't work. Well harrumph, I thought, why bother if it doesn't work?
Then I started sleeping less and less... partly because our whole family is getting weird rhythms right now, as my husband is home recuperating from a surgery (and ends up napping a lot, then staying up late, then sleeping in late, etc) But last night I just could NOT get to sleep. Someone was playing music loudly in the neighborhood... and the constant base thump was enough to prevent me from sleeping. Then dh would toss and turn in his sleep, or a cat would make some noise or... yeah. So, I dragged myself out of bed after two frustrating hours, scooped out a tablespoon of honey, and went back to bed. Where I slept like a rock for 7 hours. Nice.
I'm a believer! I tried to stray from the path, like I always do, but I'm back in the fold now.
