My bf flies a lot for his work. He always sleeps on the plane. I asked him if he wore a snore guard on the plane and he said no, because he doesn't snore while sitting up. One day we were both very tired and were sitting on the couch watching tv. He fell asleep while sitting up.....He was snoring soooo loud. I was imagining how the passengers must feel being on his flights. He now takes his snore guard with him.

See snoring doesn't bother me when I'm not trying to fall asleep. And I can't sleep during the day or on planes unless I'm unusually tired and at that point, no noise bothers me.

Although last weekend we were napping, I got up to watch tv in the other room, he comes on the couch intending to stay up and he falls asleep and starts snoring! Lol, *******!

Have you noticed him gasping for air when he snores? If so he could have sleep apnea.

My husband is a long time snorer and I am also a wakeful sleeper. I can sleep through his snoring if it is rhythmic and repetitive, but when it is erratic or obnoxiously loud, then it disrupts my sleep. But he went for a sleep study and was diagnosed with apnea. The CPAP machine worked wonders for him and he sleeps much more soundly and the hush from the machine is kind of soothing. It took a little while to get used to but now it is part of his regular routine.

I do swear by earplugs too even with the improvement because general night time sounds cause me to wake up. I sleep much more soundly with them so I would recommend those too as others did.

No, he's not that bad. His snoring is pretty light but sometimes loud. If it was that bad, I wouldn't be able to sleep at all with him. I just hope it never gets to that level. :/

I have 2 friends that snore like that. Once I had to go and purchase another hotel room in the middle of the night because it was night 3 of no sleep, the other time I slept on the couch outside.

Do you live in a dry climate, or is the air in your bedroom very dry? My husband is a snorer as well, but I noticed that he got louder in the fall when it started to get really dry here. We started sleeping with a humidifier on for my own sinus issues and his snoring doesn't seem as loud when we are using it every night.

I did some searching on some old threads and I'm going to try this -

He said his ex and his exwife also complained about the snoring. He tried the nose strips but he said after a few days they dont work anymore. I just recently started noticing the snoring. Either I'm sleeping even lighter or the colder weather is making it worse(which was the case for my ex). My ex and I had to sleep in separate rooms for a while in the winter.

His snoring is light so I'm thinking earplugs could work. I'm guessing there is no real solution to the snoring. I've read about the sleep studies and the machine, i don't expect him to wear that crap while he's sleeping.

im a light sleeper and my husband snores like crazy loud. SUPER loud. I have slept with ear plugs for the past few years. it blocks it out just enough sometimes. sometimes its still too loud and i just lightly kick his leg and it makes him roll over and he usually stops for then. i also noticed he snores louder than ever when he sleeps on his back on his side its not so bad
