With snoring affecting around 40 per cent of the UK population, the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association’s annual National Stop Snoring Week aims to make people aware that nobody needs suffer as a result of snoring: it is a condition that can be treated.
Snoring is one of the most common reasons why many people struggle to sleep and very few know what causes it and how to treat it.
Not only can snoring have a big impact on your sleep but it can affect your partners too.  One of the biggest complaints about sharing a bed is snoring and studies show that many British couple opt to sleep alone every night for this reason. For some ear plugs can be a huge help but when a partner’s snoring becomes a significant and ongoing problem, seek help. What starts off as a niggle can become a major issue– so it’s important to get it sorted.
Leading bedding specialist, Slumberdown has some top tips from its sleep expert, Sammy Margo, on how to tackle snoring:
1. Record your partner snoring
Recording the snoring and playing the sound back to your partner will help them both acknowledge that there is a problem, and understand the scale of it. Many snorers will spend years not actually realising how loud their snoring is. Once your partner is aware, they’re more likely to be more cooperative in tackling the problem and you’ll be in it together.

2. Use a snoring app such as quit snoring to help
There are several brilliant sleep apps out there that will help reduce snoring. I would strongly recommend one called ‘Quit Snoring’ which has been compared as one of the best snoring apps on the App Store. The app records and displays your information about your sleep, sleep environment and your snoring. When monitoring your sleep and detecting a snoring pattern Quit Snoring will play a message and nudge you.

3. Go to bed before your snoring partner
Choosing the correct pillow can actually effect your snoring considerably. Having a pillow that doesn’t support your head and neck will constrict your airways, and therefore increase the likelihood of you snoring. Try a pillow that is specifically designed to stop snoring, such as Slumberdown’s Anti-Snore pillow available at Tesco, £6.00. The ‘S’ shaped design of the inner foam core, supports the head and neck which encourages better breathing.

4. Try going to bed before your sleeping partner gets a chance to set of snoring
Going to bed before the snorer does will mean you won’t suffer from the anxiety of waiting for them to fall asleep and begin snoring which you know will keep you awake. Even if the snoring usually wakes you up, at least this way you can get a head start with your sleep and you never know, you might even sleep through the noise when your partner joins you.

5. Sew a tennis ball into the back of the snorer’s pyjamas
It might sound bonkers but it’s one of my best tips to prevent snoring. Sewing a tennis ball onto the back of the snorer’s pyjamas will make it uncomfortable to lie on their back, which is the position most likely to trigger snoring. Instead, the snoring partner will be forced to sleep on their side and will therefore be less likely to snore.

6. Try some throat spray
Throat spray is a brilliant, nifty and inexpensive solution to help reduce snoring. It works in the same manner as anti-snoring mouthwash, specifically formulated throat spray helps to tighten and lubricate your throat muscles, therefore encouraging better breathing. Natural formulations in certain sprays can last for up to 8 hours so you shouldn’t need to respray in the middle of the night.

After various test ect (including a bilateral sinus wash out) I was given a UPPP and tonsillectomy to stop the snoring. This is an awful operation but did seem to work. That was nearly 20 years ago now.
