Talking Low long... And How Do You... ???

Ok People! So, I arrived from the UK yesterday to CA. I stayed awake until 8:30pm, then finally went to sleep. I was up at 2:30am (10:30am UK time). And, considering that I had been up since 7am UK time on Tuesday, I did I did not sleep one bit on the 11 hour flight on Wednesday! I guess this is Pre-Jetlag-Tension! (PJT).

So, how do you cope with jetlag, and how long does it take your body to adjust to the new time zone.

I cope with RedBull, and it takes me approximately 4 weeks to adjust to the 8-hr time difference!

That 8hr difference is a killer. Did it a few times. Found alchohol and a good shag or three did the tcket. Cures a common cold also.

Melatonin. Available from many health food stores. Seems to reset the body clock.

Failing that, my wife and I get Gardnma to come over and stay for a while.

Oh, cheers - you mean I'll send to to sleep with my endless drolling? Or did you have something else in mind......

BTW: Your avatar is brill, Peter Cook was a genius.

People who consume the beverage in excess (more than 2-5 cans) in a 24-hour period) have been known to express discomfort, such as nausea, diarrhea, stomach pains, gas, and/or sleeplessness.

Ray, I would only have the one can of RedBull, a day! Most likely around 2pm (when my body thinks its 10pm in England!) I don't want to get addicted, just a little help!

Thanks for the heads-up though!
