    Snap! Yeah, I usually go to sleep around 5 - 6am and never get up til about 5 - 6pm, and it is because I don't have a social life that I allow myself to do that. Sometimes I even miss Uni lectures because of it. I find the best way to tackle this sort of thing is to try and stay awake all day (usually hard cause I find myself drifting off for a nap around 2pmish) and go to bed at the normal time (for me that would be around 10 - 11pm), and by then you'll be just so tired that you'll sleep right through to the morning - and then your sleep pattern's back to normal.

    i have always been somewhat nocturnal. it's not really an issue because like others have said my social life is non-existant. :rolleyes:

    Try staying awake all day, you'll soon exhaust yourself. If it hard use caffiene, except in late-afternoon/evening, at that point you''ll just have to use will power. Get a sleeping pattern, even if you are not sleeping exactly. At least then your body/mind will know what the heck is going on. It can't be healthy waking up in the late afternoon. What about melatonin levels?!

    I have this same problem. I usually go to bed around 3 am (sometimes around 2 am). I dont fall asleep until about 4-5am. Then I sleep until noon or after. It really disrupts my day. I miss church, Im late for appointments, I wake up hungry and sick, ect, ect...My only advice is to wake yourself up early one morning and stay up all day. Set an alarm clock in the next room, set it to play annoying music very loudly, that way your forced to get out of bed to turn it off. Then just stay up. Dont go back to sleep and hopefully you will be tired at the next normal bedtime. I know easier said then done(I dont want to do it either. I love late nights and late starts to the day)...:rolleyes:
