Do you sleep with a snorer?

Print Friendly

Broken nights of sleep due to sharing a bed with someone who snores, is proving to be an issue for over 40% of couples in the UK.

According to the British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association there are 15 million snorers in the UK. Male snorers outnumber female snorers by two to one. Recent research suggests, those living in Northern Ireland have the highest incidence of snorers, and also snoring may be hereditary.  Post-menopausal women are more likely to snore than younger women!

Does your other half’s snoring keep you awake at night? Are you forced to sleep in another room? Have you tried any methods to help stop the snoring? Or maybe you’re a snorer yourself and it’s your partner who is wearing the earplugs at night?

I did sleep with a snorer, it was hell when he had downed a few pints, my word he could strip the wallpaper with his gurgling inhalations.
One night it was so bad that the Dogger Bank fog horn was answering back... Morecambe Bay lifeboat was launched, and 3 factories knocked off 6 hours early!

I slept with a bad snorer for many years but when I became dangerously ill we slept in seperate bedrooms. We have never got back to sharing the same bedroom again. I miss sharing the bed but do not miss the snoring!

If my other half snores too loudly I either wear earplugs or go in the spare room! No problem.

I used to snore very loudly which resulted in separate bedrooms ......I was then diagnosed with sleep apnea and supplied with a machine to cure the problem .
From the first night using the machine ..I DID NOT SNORE !!! ....and I found that instead of sleeping in the day ..because of poor sleep....I did not need to daytime sleep.
This machine ( free on the NHS ) has changed my life.

Totally agree we both snore so why just the woman!

I completely agree ... all stock images seem to portray it's men who snore, but as a female snorer, I think your point is very valid 🙂

Yes my wife snores like a chainsaw going off! Some nights I have to move to another room as she wakes me up and I simply cannot sleep! She wakes me up because of the noise and I sometimes make loud noises and the snoring stops and then 1 minute later its off again!
