Actually, it works best if you don't pass the bottle. :twisted:

Alcohol at nigttime has a "rebound effect" - helps get to sleep, but then causes wakening in the early hours.

(I gave that Spiral Stairs a go, but forgot to descend. I woke up at the top) :roll: Well, it was I climb of the same name I did a couple of times)

Often I do Yoga right before bed -- not all the balancing stuff, just a few exercises (like leg pulls) that stretch large muscles. If done gradually, the body works through a little starting pain by producing endorphins. The rush of relief after I finish Yoga is most similar to the feeling I've gotten after a morphine shot, say during a kidney stone episode. YMMV.
