if not i cannot sleep

No. If not, you can't pass out, maybe. But that combination is disrupting your sleep patterns, leaving you increasingly sleep-deprived - especially REM sleep-deprived - and making your situation progressively worse. It only FEELS like it's helping. It's actually exacerbating your problems.

There are other ways to sleep that are far less dangerous and far more effective. Talk to your doctor about your insomnia - and about getting help for your substance abuse.
