    Other than leaving, what's the best way to defend a relationship against Snoring?

    Do you take up new hobbies or night shift, or join the chorus... How do you help reduce or cure the strain of snoring on a relationship... Without hurting the feelings of your significant other?

    HI PD best thing I can think of is separate bedrooms well, when it's time to sleep?  Say your a very restless sleeper and don't want to keep her up all night-never admit the truth! xo

    Hi Pearl get them one of those things to put in their mouth or on their nose as a gift to reduce snoring.

      I think homicide is frowned upon, even if the snoring's bad, but we've had some luck with Breath Rite strips....

    My husband snores and I'd gotten used to it...until we had a baby. When I had to get up in the middle of the night with the baby, it was very hard for me to fall back asleep with his snoring. Plus, he was waking up the baby. He ended up sleeping in another room so the baby and I could both sleep (and he slept really great then too).

    He had a deviated septum and did get it fixed. His snoring was not as bad after the surgery. Plus, he could breathe easier. But, he still snores.

    Losing weight was the thing that really improved his snoring dramatically. It can be a touchy subject, though.

    Hello.  My husband is a very loud snorer.  I've tried going to bed before him but he still wakes me in the middle of the night.  We've tried many different things with no success.  I alternate between sleeping in the bed with him and sleeping on the couch.  When I do sleep in the bedroom, I use earplugs which work pretty well.  I only have an issue when they fall out.  I also have a glass of Chamomile tea before bed to make me sleep a little sounder.

    There are machines as carolinemd21 says.  Have them go to the doctor and have a sleep study done.  They can then prescribe a breathing machine that will keep the airways open.  My husband could never get used to it but his was set for the max setting making it hard to breath. 

    Just be honest with the person about the snoring.  Maybe they will take a shift or two on the couch.  Hopefully it won't hurt their feeling if they know it's keeping you awake.

    Best of luck!

    Go to Walmart and pick up a big box of earplugs. It really works.

    My hubby and I have slept apart for well over a year now because of his extreme snoring (even the cats can't handle it). We just get together for the romantic stuff, but otherwise we have separate bedrooms smile

    Many times, snoring is caused by sleeping on your back, as the uvula drops down into the throat and vibrates like a sonuva gun, making the sound.

    Often, the snoring can decrease or go away altogether if you can get them to shift to another position.

    My husband is conditioned enough at this point that, if I touch his arm gently and say "Honey, turn over", he rolls over onto his side without even waking up. I gently massage his back for a minute, and the sound drops to workable levels
