Worked nights for about 17 years now, give or take.
Only get about 4 hours kip; if I sleep for 5 hours, it's like a lie-in.
You can either do nights or you can't. Fortunately I can.
But even for a seasoned pro like me, it gets hard to stay awake (usually around 4am for me).
The secret of my success involves an illicit substance.
Let's leave it there.
Is working night shifts bad for you?
A new study claims that working nights can disrupt gene activity after only three days – and the health dangers are thought to include an increased risk of breast cancer, type 2 diabetes and heart attacks. Does it worry nocturnal workers? And are there any advantages?
I come home in the morning and drink, then go to sleep, or as I like to call it "pass out" for about 4 or 5 hours.
