Always fall asleep in recliner?

I have 4 home theater chairs. I almost never recline them in the evening because I will fall asleep in a dark room every time. It doesnt matter how good the movie is or how loud it is. If it is after about 7pm I have no chance. If I am at a pro theater with recliners, same thing.

I must always sit up while watching movies after 7pm. I was tested for sleep apnea, I dont have it. If playing a video game, can stay up all night easily.

Just curious if this is common or any other comment.

Do you normally get enough sleep? Maybe the dark room + reclining position is enough to trigger your body into thinking it's time to finally get some sleep.

(I have fallen asleep in my recliner a few times while watching a movie, but the cause each time has been an excess of red wine and/or whiskey. )

OP,

Count your blessings! Your body falls into sleep when it needs the rest. Like @eljaycanuck mentions, you may not be getting enough sleep under normal conditions. There are days I would pay a Million dollars for such a Recliner!!!!

AdamG, ...out!

Same thing for me! Reclining couch seats rather than chairs, but same deal. I'm chalking it up to old age...

OP, how old are you, what do you do during the daytime and when not sitting in the recliner, what is your normal bedtime and what time do you wake up?

i'm 58 and if i recline in any of my recliners when it's dark, i find it's normal, natural that if i'm still enough and my heartrate goes low enough, i will easily begin to fall asleep. it's normal for the most part and nothing wrong with it.

why do you think we make children sit still for a while when we know they need a nap in order for them to go to sleep! also, when your tired, your tired!

Another thought is what time do you ordinarily awaken in the morning?

A thing you can try when you first start to feel the signs of drowsiness, is to have a stinky onion nearby and take a whiff. That should bring you back into the waking state.
