    I'm like to [verb]

    Is it correct to say like this:
    I'm like to fall asleep
    ?

    I know "I'm about" is ok here but nevertheless..

    Thanks

    'I'm likely to fall asleep'.

    In spoken English in the South, you'll hear "I'm like to..." to mean "It's likely that I will..." but don't use it if you're not from there and don't use it in writing.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
