Since sleep is so important for growth, on average how many hours do you get a night?

I'm a borderline insomniac who on average usually only gets 4-5hrs a night. I try to supplement it with naps where I can but I rarely get the recommended 8-10hrs of proper uninterrupted sleep.

I'm a really bad sleeper. I usually get around the 5 to 7 hours sleep a night. Pretty frustrating sometimes.

i have always had trouble falling asleep, i probably will reach the point soon where i start taking sleeping pills, but im really sceptical about them. on average i get from 4-6 hours. what i find works very well if u have trouble sleeping, is turning off ur computer monitor, turn off the TV and just lay down on the bed and read a book or just relax, then after an hour u try to go to sleep. i find i fall asleep alot easier if i do that than if i have been sitting watching tv or infront of the computer...

i try to get at least 8, but doesnt always workout.
i have a hard time falling asleep a lot too, so sometimes i plan to get 8 hours but takes but hour or more to go to sleep so i end up getting 630-7 hours

I get like 7, I try to get more like 8-9 on the weekends. I always make my biggest muscular and strength gains over the summer because I got no school and sleep in every day.

I probably get around 6-7 on average taking into account my 2 night shifts which fuck up my body clock. Shift work is really hard on the sleep.

i dont know if you agree with me or not but sleep is more important than supplements , and training itself for body growth . it is more important than sex !!
