Try changing your sleep position, in order to reduce snoring. Sleeping on your back can force your head down and cause your throat to close up somewhat. Sleep on your side, as a means of making sleep easier on your neck, and to help reduce your snoring.

 

If you have problems with snoring during the colder winter months, consider purchasing a humidifier. If you allow the humidifier to remain on in your bedroom while you sleep, you may notice less snoring. The moisture in the air reduces congestion in your chest and reduces the breathing difficulty that can lead to snoring.

 

Keep your weight down to avoid snoring. While being overweight doesn't necessarily cause snoring, extra fat in the neck region can place additional pressure on the airways, which can cause snoring. If your snoring problem worsens after you gain a little weight, your best solution will be to lose the excess weight.

 

If you want to stop snoring, don't drink that glass of warm (or cold) milk at bedtime. Dairy beverages can make your nose generate more mucus, which will block your air passages -- which will cause you to snore. Drinking water instead will keep your nose from blocking, and will keep you from snoring.

 

Keep your nasal passages open to prevent snoring. Stuffy, clogged noses, and other nasal obstructions, can contribute to snoring. If you are suffering from a cold, try using a vapor rub, humidifier or a neti pot to clear the blockage in your nose. Nasal strips are also a good investment in the fight against snoring. These are placed over the bridge of the nose and allow extra air to flow through by forcing the nasal passages to open.

 

Illegal drugs should never be used, under any circumstances. These can cause you to snore. Marijuana, for example, is a drug that relaxes the body. Any type of pain killer can have the same result. Total relaxation feels good while you are awake, but can cause snoring once you are asleep.

 

Discuss your snoring with your dentist. If your lower jaw slackens in your sleep, it can contribute to snoring. Your dentist can fit you with a special mouthguard to wear at night, which will hold your teeth together and keep your jaw relaxing too much. This may fix your snoring problems.
