Then, sleeplessness is created by these drugs. According to some investigates, most people get sleeplessness due to using prednisone after taking their dosage late in the evening. In addition, drinking wine or other alcohols can induce sleep disorders because it disrupts the sequence of sleep states. Aside from, it causes insomnia (or sleeplessness) by altering all sleep time as well as the time required to fall asleep. For example, some people say that when they drink too much or become obviously drunk, they often sleep badly. For more detail, they say that they sleep for two or three hours and then they wake up and can be able to sleep again. Moreover, some fast-food like BBQ or KFC chicken, hamburger, hot dog, etc; and soda, caffeine-drink, etc also are reasons for insomnia. One of the most serious effects of sleeplessness is health problems. This symptom affects people’s brains function. As a consequence of insomnia, there is people’s resistance to illness and disease, increasing negative emotion, despairs and wrecks their appearance. Besides, if people don’t have enough sleep they can’t think clearly, and get good memory. Sleeplessness also causes the body to release too little growth hormone and make skin as well as eyes bad. For special, sleep loss can have effect on lackluster skin and make a dark circles under the eyes. Moreover, according to a research, people who have sleeplessness were 30 percent more likely to become obese than those who sleep from seven to nine hours per day.

Besides, people have this symptom are easy to have an accident, making a serious mistake, even the risks. When drivers are lack of sleep, serious motor-vehicle-accidents are likely to occur. In addition, sleeplessness makes people reduce the ability to concentrate or focus on a study, work, and other tasks. Moreover, people usually make impaired social interaction after a long time living with sleeplessness.

Both causes and effects of sleeplessness have just been analyzed above, major causes are life situation and inputs of human body and serious effects are serious health problems and behavior impact. With all of the above, I hope that people can avoid this worse symptom so as to have a comfortable, healthy, and happy life.
