Can you? Do you sleep without any noise around you? I can not do this! I hate sleeping in complete silence, its hard for me to fall asleep then I am waking up quite a bit to different noises throughout the night. Since I was 14 I slept with an air purifier turned on, the noise isn't that loud but I am so used to sleeping with it on, sometimes I will fall asleep to the tv as well. What about you? Do you sleep in complete silence? your snoring partner does not count lol :)

I can't sleep in total silence unless I've been asleep for awhile. I will watch TV then fall asleep on the couch. I can then go to bed and sleep easily in total quiet. But I can't FALL asleep in total silence. very seldom do I retire at the same time as my wife due to this fact. Ugghh. I think this comes from being in the carnival at such a young age. I was used to the motors and generators running all the time and that helped me sleep. I don't know. Sounds like the only logIcal reason I can come up with. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Your childhood did probably effect your sleep patterns you seem more at peace with noise to help you sleep. Thats how I am thanks for your response

I sleep in complete silence. I live in a cave house in a rural part of spain. My nearest neighbour is 10 minutes walk away. I love the peace and quiet. I lived and worked in London for 23 years befor I moved here and to constantly have noise and to hear other people wore me down. If I go back to visit family in England I find it difficult to sleep with noise and streetlights.
