How To Stop Taking Sleeping Pills (2019 Update)

non habit forming

If you’ve read our post about the best non-habit forming sleeping aid, you’ll see that we are advocates of not using sleeping supplements or pills that cause dependancy or are habit-forming. Unfortunately, there are millions of people in America alone who are only able to sleep with the use of such aids or supplements. This is a bigger problem than we give it credit for, and it’s something that needs to be stopped sooner rather than later. Obviously, it’s difficult to just stop all together, especially if it’s something you’ve been doing for more than just a few weeks. With patience and discipline, anyone can permanently stop using those pills quite easily.


1. Understand The Problem

It’s always best to first understand the problem you’re dealing with. If you are only able to solve the problem temporarily, you will battle with a never ending struggle of trying to regain a healthy sleep in your life. The problem behind the vast majority of sleeping problems is some sort of insomnia; only you are able to determine what the direct cause of your insomnia is. For most people, it comes from some sort anxiety or chemical imbalance in the brain.

If you don’t have any lead on what could be the cause of your anxiety, it may be wise to consult with a professional. It is entirely possible to suffer from insomnia due to more serious health concerns which you may not even be aware of.


2. Slowly Take The Necessary Steps To Stop

With something like this, cold turkey isn’t recommended. You cannot expect to somehow be able to fall asleep instantly after stopping the usage of sleeping pills all together. Instead, you should strive to lower the dosage more and more each night, until you are taking only a very small fraction of what you were once taking. Eventually, you will reach a point where you can alternate the days on which you take the sleeping pills, and slowly but surely you can totally eliminate sleeping pills from your life.


3. Start Using Mela Luna

Mela Luna is hands-down, the best alternative to sleeping pills and supplements on the market. Essentially, you get the same results you normally would with a typical sleeping pill except it is not habit-forming and works to rewire your brain in such a way that you no longer need to take anything to fall asleep.

For all of human history, people were able to easily fall asleep without the use of anything other than maybe some bedding. Only recently have we begun to put things into our bodies that force us to fall asleep, and it has become evident that this is not totally healthy for us. The use of Mela Luna is not meant to be permanent; instead it is meant to act as the kick you need to completely and easily stop the use of dangerous, dependancy-forming sleeping pills.


Bottom Line

By now, it should be very clear that stopping the use of sleeping pills is very important for your well-being and should be halted as soon as physically possible. Failure to stop the use of such ‘supplements’ can result in permanent damage to certain parts of your brain and will worsen your insomnia exponentially, especially when the product is no longer being used. It may seem like something that is not necessarily the most important, but in fact the opposite is true.
