“No More Drugs”: Anonymous Female Testimonial

I am 71 and have been unable to easily fall sleep without lorazepam for years. When I started reading about the possible harm the drug might be doing, I went into action. I read about sleep and tried a number of apps. Then I came across an article in Forbes. Then I read more about your app and the cognitive shuffle. I was intrigued. It made perfect sense.

I tried the app a week ago and I fell asleep. The next night I put it on for an hour so I would not end up worrying that it would end before I fell asleep. I have fallen asleep every night, sometimes in minutes, but never more than around 20 minutes. No more drugs.

Thank you.
