What is REALLY the best way to stop??? My husband will go for several days and snore like crazy and he wonders why I wake up tired. Then he will go months and not snore. So what is it and how can it be stopped? There are all kinds of pillows, pills and chin straps (of sorts) but he won't even think about trying them And the pillow is very expensive!) So help----Thanks in advance!!

Now that's interesting. With my husband, it's every night. Some nights are worse, especially if he's congested, but basically it's every night. I sleep with earplugs actually. Now in your husband's case, maybe it's congestion too. On the days when he snores does he have a cold or nasal allergies or something? Possibly it's something he can look into with a doctor?

Hi I know how you feel my fiance snores I do to ,but well skip that part my reason is because I can't breathe I thought it was allergies ,but a few x-rays later it was something else my nasal passage is blocked and that's why I have to have surgery for it. Here's my advice ears plugs if I was going to have a baby in a couple months I'd get ear plugs ,but seeing how I'm having a baby and I have to hear her cry's theirs no ear plugs for me. also see what's the cause of his snoring. I have no idea why my fiance snores in the beginning of us I had sleepless nights when I slept over due to his snoring I had to get used to it because I knew I snore we both talk in our sleep were a great pair huh? try the pillows me I tried the breath right it didn't work it didn't stay on my nose at all. They should invent something better. There's pills for that? I would get the pillow I think it's a lot to do with the air passage for me it's probably half the problem. If your necks lined up I'm sure it helps or you can only hope. I hope you find a solution I have yet to find one. We don't live together yet so it's not so bad I can sleep through his snoring some how ,but being pregnant due it a couple months and having to go to the washroom and tossing and turning because I'm not comfortable I'm waking him when he stays over? I'd say I was sorry for it ,but I had to give up so much for our baby and while now sleep is one of the things. He'll have to get used to it.

Have one of his friends say some thing about his snoring and he might listen to them and tell his friend that he should see a doctor or about it if he dosen't like that than try some thing that will help him stop snoring. GOOD LUCK....I found out that I snore and you don't know that you do. cd

There are those nose strips they sell. They claim they work for snoring, but I've never tried them for that. I do wear them to sleep when my nose is congested and it does help me breath easier at night. They're pretty inexpensive and aren't uncomfortable, so they might be worth trying. They also make throat sprays that are supposed to help snoring. I'd start out with some cheaper remedies first and see if you get any results from those. If your husband refuses to even try anything at all, then you should get some sort of really loud noisemaker and every time his snoring wakes you up, use the noisemaker to wake him up. Once he sees what it's like for you, he may be more willing to try something.

My dad snored his whole life. He still does. The only thing that slightly helps him was when he was propped up a little. I did hear that the surgery helps sometimes. I wonder if he has a deviated septum?
