Do you wear ear plugs to bed? Does it help you sleep better?

Several years back, we lived in a house that was very near the highway. And, you could literally hear the traffic 24 hours a day, even at night. And, that made sleeping almost impossible. At the time we couldn't afford to move, so we just had to deal with it. Most times, I would run the air conditioner and that would drown out the sound. But, you can't do that in the winter, so I had to wear ear plugs to sleep at night, instead. Surprisingly, they really worked to drown out the noise. The place we live now, is so much more quiet, so I don't have to wear ear plugs to bed. Unfortunately, now that it's so quiet, I suffer from insomnia and don't sleep anyway. Ironic, I guess. Do you ever wear ear plugs to bed, so that you can sleep? Does it help?
