Our expert says:
The danger of taking sleeping tablets every night is that you get addicted to them.
To take sleeping tablets for six years is madness. You are disrupting your natural sleeping patterns and should stop.
But don't stop on your own, discuss it with a GP who knows about addiction. Not all doctors are clued up on addiction issues.
A doctor can work out a regime for you so that you can decrease the use of the tablets until you are weaned off them.
