This was the Good Question the other night and Paul and I just looked at each other and laughed. Can snoring be stopped? LOL!! NO! OH HELL NO!!!
Snoring. I’d like to have a quarter for the amount of times Paul and I either talked about it or fought about it. We’d be rich.
Anyone who sleeps with a snorer knows how miserable it is to lay there night after night and nudging them to roll over and finally giving up and moving to the couch. The snorer then treats you like the bad guy. Oy Vey!!
With Paul, his “snoring” isn’t like the sound of a train passing through. It doesn’t shake the room and bed. There are no fireworks. It’s more like puffing sounds and mouth noises that NEVER stop. It sounds like a little orchestra coming out of his mouth. You never know which sound is going to come out. He also tosses and turns all night and when he moves like that, I did too. There were many restless nights that I felt like I was on a trampoline!
He tried these Breathe Right strips for a while but like anything else, it was a pain in the butt to put them on and after a while he just gave up. If I were to walk this earth again, I’d always have had my own room and my own bed. The last 15 years have been the best sleeping for me and had I known it was this easy, neither of us would have had to go through what we did.
They did say in the story that there are ways to “try” to get the snorer to stop. Lose weight. No alcohol. Sure, those are all very easy things to do! People just say those things like they are such an easy thing to do. “All you have to do is lose weight!” Sure!! I think it’s safe to say if you’ve snored for 40 years, you’re not going to stop.
Are you a snorer? Do you sleep with a snorer? Other than smothering them, what do you do about it?
