The internet to frequent user is often known as a cause of Insomnia and not a cure. Now, a recent study of 44 individuals with a history of difficulty in sleeping at the University Laval in Quebec, found that half of whom were put on a Cognitive Behavior Therapy program (CBT-l) for Insomnia, experienced a decrease in the severity of their insomnia and were less likely to wake up in the middle of the night, compared with the other half who were placed on a waiting list. The results suggest that Internet Intervention programs (which are aimed at changing sleep habits, scheduling as well as misconceptions about sleep and Insomnia) may be effective in treating insomnia, without the use of sleeping pills.
