Are you affected by your partners snoring habit?

My husband snores and it's very loud. You can even hear him from out of the room. He doesn't believe that he snores so I made recordings of his snoring. It can be quite funny because he made all sorts of sounds. I read somewhere that a snorer shouldn't sleep on his back. He should sleep on his sides so he won't snore and there is an exercise you can do to stop the snoring but I can't remember it. Something to do with pushing the lower teeth with your tongue or something like that.

Yes, it's terrible. If I wake up in the night, and he is snoring, there is no way I can get back to sleep. I bought him a special pillow that is supposed to change the angle of the neck and help to stop snoring - I think it might have made the snoring a bit quieter, but he doesn't like it. I've tried putting earplugs in, but they make my ears itch after about an hour. I've tried sleeping on the sofa, but am then woken up by my cat pawing at me. It's been good lately, as he is sleeping in another room because the weather has been so hot!

He only really snores when he has been drinking which is usually at weekends so it doesn't matter so much. I can usually sleep through it, otherwise I just move his head or adjust his pillows and he normally stops. If it's really bad and I need to sleep I will move to the spare room.

My partner snores, he does not do it all the time which is probably why I manage to just ignore it but its extremely loud when he does and always wakes me up. He only does it when he is totally exhausted though as in cant stay awake he is that tired so often he could be sat on the sofa and start snoring then i just turn the tv up!
