Eating and Drinking Habits:

Bring a change in your lifestyle if you are really keen in getting rid of your snoring habit. Try to maintain a sleep routine. Go to sleep at the same time everyday; late night sleeps can be really very bad for your general health. Keep away from rich food or for that matter even try to keep your meals fat and oil free. Eat at least four hours before you go to bed. And yes, you can also have a spoon or more of honey everyday as this can also help you to stop snoring.
