提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
Homework
        For the last 15 years, S F has struggled to get a good night sleep. She used to take sleeping pills that she bought over the counter from the chemist but they didn't work for long. Her anxiety about becoming dependent on tablets just made her insomnia worse. She now uses an online sleep program that works for her and would never go back to medication.
        I was in despair really, having taken pills in knowing I shouldn't be putting chemicals in my body. I thought seriously suicide to be honest because I couldn't say how I could draggle on all my life where I was failing.
        Pharmacists are now warning insomnia suffers about the dangers of treating sleep problems themselves. According to a new survey 30% of people with insomnias have taken sleeping remedies for longer than a month without getting any medical advice. 14% have taken them for longer than six months. And 18% have no idea how long they’ve been on medication.
        If you have a long-term sleeping problem, if you last longer than a month, for the majority of those cases that's possibly underlying medication condition and that could be a mental health problem like depression, or a physical symptom like asthma. So we like people to talk to their pharmacists and get really good advice about what their underlying condition might be.
        Sleeping pills treat the symptoms but not the cause. Pharmacists are urging the one in three people who suffer from insomnia to seek help and only use pills as a last resort.
