Oh Sweet Sleepy Time | ZzzQuil | Sponsored

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZzzQuil for SocialSpark
All opinions are 100% mine.

I am awake and alive

(and many days before)
I was not.

Awake that is.
Alive, I was.

Recently, the makers of Vicks NyQuil sent me a sample
of the liquid version of ZzzQuil.

I was down to try it
because not so long ago
I actually bought my better half
the pill version of ZzzQuil.

I was apprehensive about buying him sleeping pills
so I was looking for something a bit more natural
or at least something that was a known entity to me
in the scary "pill for everything" aisle at the grocery store.

That was when I first stumbled on ZzzQuil.
And when I started struggling to get a good night's sleep
it took everything in me to get one of those pills down.

Not because ZzzQuil is bad (I'm getting to that)
but because me and pills are bad.

I just psyche myself out and I can't get them down my throat.

So here comes liquid ZzzQuil to the rescue!

What I love about ZzzQuil is that it works. Fast.
Evidently, it's active ingredient diphenhydramine HCI
has something to do with that.

I'm no chemist (though I did get into Cornell as a wannabe geneticist)
so you'll have to look that up.

I also love love LOVE that it is in liquid form for me
and in pill form for him (LiquiCap® to be specific).

And of course I bought it because it said right on the package
that it is non-habit forming.
Heck, even 12 year olds can use it.
Which, of course, made me skeptical
that it would do the deed on my 6'6 better half.

And it did!

Which of course made me less skeptical about it working on me.

And it did!

There are about a million and one other things I loved as well.
For instance, nothing is more frustrating
than fighting your tamper proof med packaging
when you are sleep deprived.

The packaging was SUPER easy to hack into.
which is a good thing for me in my no-kid house.

It has the standard kid proof stuff too,
but not the Ft. Knox packaging I've experienced lately with, say,
my chewy prenatals
(that don't have enough iron in them because people who want to be moms
are not responsible enough to keep chewy iron filled candy looking meds away from their kids.
I digress...)

Just. Saying

ZzzQuil saved my butt.
I woke up refreshed
and a lot less angry
about the prenatal thing.

And a lot more ready for hot yoga.

Check out (and like) ZzzQuil on Facebook
and in real life
and tweet about your #ZzzQuilNight once you wake well rested.


  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all.

    Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals
    or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could definitely be one of the best in its field.
