Do not take Tranquilizers and Alcohol

The central nervous system is affected when you ingest sleeping pills or alcohol. Your throat muscles and those of your jaw tend to relax, making you more likely to snore. Further, both alcohol and tranquilizers are contributory factors to sleep apnea a very dangerous condition which can be fatal and often the cause of cardiovascular diseases. These should not be taken at the same time. Consult your doctor if you have difficulty falling asleep without these.

Quit Smoking

Nothing damages the system of respiration as much as smoking does. Smoking aggravates snoring. Stop smoking.

Get your allergies treated

When you suffer from allergies, especially if you tend to breathe through your mouth while you sleep, you will snore. Saline sprays, antihistamine or humidifiers are helpful. Try any one of these to get relief.

Maintain regularity

Get as much sleep as your body requires. Try to go to bed at the same time every day and wake up at the same time next morning. Erratic habits compound the problem manifold.

    I want to start by saying I’ve been having ssues with snoring and sleep apnea most of my adult life. I am always snoring quite loudly and wake up quite tired. I tried a lot of solutions, natural remedies, sleeping pills and much more. But with no luck .I was allways waking up quite tired even if I went to bed early the night before. Anyway, the solution to my sleeping issues arrived when my brother told me about this great new device .The anti-snoring device or gadget is called Zippah Rx and it worked like a charm for me. My wife and my kids told me that my snoring volume had gone down and I finely wake up felling rested.If u never tried an anti-snoring device it will take you a bit to adjust.

      I totally agree on the mouthpieces for stopping snoring, Stella. It’s been a live saver for our household… although we had the best success with the good morning snore solution. Thanks for posting!

    Hi Temilola,

    Those were some great tips to stop snoring and I need to forward this to one of my uncles who DOES snore a great deal. So much so that his wife has now shifted to another room as they keep getting louder than before.

    Yes, there are also many reasons why people snore, and while one of my research articles on the same subject that I’d written long back – the facts were rather shocking. Nevertheless, if you can take certain measures as you mentioned, you’d be much better off.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂
