My husband snores on his back so I just roll him over... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't... Ive always liked listening to music, but he needs it quiet, and I dont like his snoring, so I just listen to my discman until Im almost asleep. It works perfectly!

Oh, I have told my husband that if he ever dies in his sleep - it will be because I killed him for snoring!

He's horrible! I can hear hm two rooms away. And I already suffer from insomnia - so some nights my sanity is about to crack. He's gone to the Dr. but they say the only thing that can be done to help is surgery - and he doesn't want to have that done.

And he snores in whatever position he lays in. I am very thankful for my Ambien.

The good old nudge and roll over worked for the past few years, but he's over the edge now. I'm afraid he will need surgery as well. But I need sleep and he wakes me up every night (that he doesn't end up on the sofa)! Imagine this, one night he was snoring numbers, literally. His entire life is numbers, I was amused by it, then I plugged his nose just to see what would happen. The next day I'm telling my story, he was even in stitches, and he's usually pretty sensitive about all of it. But it drives me CRAZY!

This needs a small surgery?

When my husband's snoring wakes me (sometimes even his breathing bothers me!) I pop in the earplugs I keep on my nightstand, and I can't hear a thing! I'm not sure they'd work for the "three rooms away" kind of snoring, though.

I would wear ear plugs in a heart beat, just afraid I wouldn't wake up to the alarm in the am, and I really need the alarm. It would work ok on the weekends. Maybe I could convince him to wake me before he leaves for work, or take out the ear plug(s). Anything would be better then waking up three times a night!

I'm not saying this is the case here, but snoring is always seen as an almost comical complaint - yet sleep deprivation is the worst kind of torture - quite literally. It was certainbly used (and probably still is!) against prisoners of war as a means of weakening them, and is dreadfully effective at lowering the morale....
Coupled with this, there is the tension and resentment it causes in the unwilling insomniac.
It is also worth bearing in mind that the snorer is also not experiencing a 'good night's sleep'... Their loud snoring is a sign of excessive restriction of the wind passage, and they are struggling to take in enough air to breathe and to function properly. Occasionally, in extreme cases, this causes sleep apnoea - a cessation of breathing all together, when there is a pause, a silence - and the person is deprived of air completely. This can lead to medical complications and other side effects.
But it's little comfort to the partner, who not only has to endure sleepless nights, but also listen to the road-drill noise-level next to them!
you can tell I speak from experience can't you? laugh

My partner can be heard from outside the house.
That's loud.
But he's very sensitive and touchy about it. He used to get quite offended when I told him how loud he was, but now he realises it's a problem....To make matters worse, he's had his nose broken. Twice.
So I do wear earplugs, he catches the alarm and then wakes me, (but I usually wake up before him anyway, such is my body-clock accustomed to the hour....)

The best practical measures for a snorer are to watch their weight, because excess chubbyness round the throat is definitely a factor, watch what foods they eat late at night (dairy products are a culprit at times) and to not smoke.

here's a couple of links I hope you'll find helpful.

Alexandra, thanks so much for the links-very helpful. And yes, you do get it! Your partner sounds much like my dh, sensitive about it. He's getting better. And he sleeps on the sofa many nights, just so I can sleep, and stay asleep. He doesn't have a weight problem, he has small sinus passages. After reading the links he probably has more than one problem. Again, thank you.
