Oh, but it is dangerous, you know. Teenagers like you should get at least eight hours of sleep a day. I wonder how you manage without adequate sleep. I always suffer from headaches when I don't sleep well. I heard that sleeplessness can cause many problems at a very young age. So hadia, I suggest you try to get some good sleep. You definitely can sleep more. Ask your parents for help. I'm saying all this because I know a few people of your age who succumbed to many illnesses due to lack of sleep. So, take care!

I'm on vacations so I can sleep 8-9 hours. However, While I'm in the university I sometimes sleep 4 or 3 hours. I'd like to sleep earlier, but It's impossible because of the homework. There are days where I can't sleep anything, I don't know why, but I feel terrible when that happens.

I dont sleep really well. i usually stay up late because i'm always interested in computer, facebook, instagram, movies... so i dont want to sleep. sometimes i thought too much so it's difficult to sleep
I always promise to myself that i'll go to bed earlier because it's good for my health, my skin but i never did.
some days i had enough sleep and some days i didnt.

Hi nguyenvu,
Thanks for your comment. If you have a lot of problems sleeping maybe you should talk to your parents about it, also to a doctor. It sounds like you may need some help to start sleeping properly again. Sleep is really important for a healthy life. I'm not an expert on this, but maybe keep the last hour before you go to sleep free from homework or any electronic devices. Read a good book that you enjoy and try to relax before bedtime. Is that possible? 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I usually sleep about 5 or 6 hours but its not enough for me. I have to sleep minimum 8 hours but I don't have enough time for sleep in a day. That's why, I always feel tired.

You know what, my mum tells me that a good sleep helps our brain rest and be creative! It's much better than wasting time with an online friend to generate a codependent addict! What do you think?

Well, I usually go to sleep very late. It makes me tired so much. I tried my best to go to bed earlier, but it's exactly very hard.

I usually sleep 5 or 6 hours every night.
But i like sleep with radio on and sometimes with television. Often I listen to music before go to bed and of course I know that's wrong but I don't turn off my phone before I falling asleep. But to be honest I usually sleep very well most of the times.
