    I have been reliably informed that I sleep like a baby. No disturbing others from me ;)

    Yep, tell her to sleep elsewhere, or wear ear plugs.

    don't smoke

    don't drink too much...especially late at night

    don't sleep on your back

    lose weight




    Actually just stopping smoking pretty much stopped it for me.

    Weight is usually the answer but not the only one (especially if you're thin :)).

    Ask her if you tend to jump/move a lot in bed and if you seem to stop breathing sometimes. If so you might have sleep apnoea and you need to see your GP.

    This website has some good info on snoring
    http://www.britishsnoring.co.uk/

    And I'd just like to add, don't underestimate the effect snoring has on your partner. If severe it can drive someone litterally crazy. If there's anything you can do to stop or at least reduce the snoring, do it not only for you but for your partner. Telling her to use ear plugs is likely to p*** her off (it did me).

    Sounds to me like its her who has the problem.

    Tell her to accept you the way you are. Why should you go changing?

    Tell her that lots of sex causes all the muscles to relax and you won't snore.

    I would suggest you see your GP about it. It might only be a mild case but sleep apnoea increases the risks of heart problems, it also affects your blood pressure and all sorts of things with the worse effect being that you feel more and more tired over time to the point where you fall asleep at inappropriate times.

    My husband started with it about 3 years ago, scared me to death the first few times I noticed. He got officially diagnosed with it last month and has a severe case: he stops breathing and wakes up 70 times an hour (you don't realise that you woke up as it's micro wake) so he needs a CPAP machine. It's not the best of news but if it allows him to have proper nights sleep and to feel rested in the morning it's all worth it.
