I’ve had snoring problems for years and, even though I don’t have Sleep Apnea, it runs in my family. I first discovered my snoring problem when I was about 10 years old. One of my friends from school was having a birthday party at his house and about 12 of us set up tents in his backyard. We were all pretty tired from the cake and excitement, so we fell asleep pretty quickly. To my surprise, I was woken up just a couple hours after falling asleep. I found that all of my friends were staring down at me, looking slightly tired but laughing all the same. I asked them what was so funny, and they said that my snoring woke everyone up! This was something they would tease me about, but it was all in good fun, and it was something I was never ashamed of.
The years passed by and my father was eventually diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. I was 18 years old at the time, and became very worried when I discovered that Sleep Apnea was a condition that can cause someone to temporarily stop breathing in their sleep. I was assured that this is rarely fatal, but it was still something that concerned me. Soon he was forced to use a CPAP machine. This was something that he seemed very reluctant about.
I later contacted our family’s doctor and asked if there were any alternatives to this method. The doctor simply told me that the only effective alternative would be surgery. I was then asked if I suffered from any sleep disturbances. The doctor’s eyes widened when I told him that I was an exceptionally loud snorer. He said that I was at risk for Sleep Apnea as well. I learned that anyone who snores is at risk for Sleep Apnea, but since it runs in my family I was especially at risk. This scared me a bit, but I was still young when I found out, so I shrugged it off as something that would never happen to me.
My snoring progressively worsened and I found that I was being woken up by it several times a night. I carried on regardless, viewing it as a minor inconvenience. It wasn’t until I met my wife that I realized how much of a problem it was. She laughed it off at first, but eventually she began to grow annoyed with my snoring, as it was causing her to wake up several times in the middle of the night. I noticed a distinct change in her attitude as well. She seemed tired and on edge because her quality of sleep was on the decline. I hadn’t yet made the connection between irritability, sluggishness, and poor sleeping habits, but I knew something had to be done. It was getting to the point where she didn’t even want to sleep in the same room.
That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I went online and conducted a bit of my own research, and that’s when it hit me that there were a wide variety of simple solutions to all of these problems I was having. Not only that, but I also learned that interrupted sleep (brought on by snoring, in my case) can lead to a number of problems, namely the irritability and sluggishness that my wife and I were suffering from. At this point I knew I had to try to find a way to put a stop to my snoring. I didn’t have Sleep Apnea, and I wanted to make sure that it never came to that.
Initially I thought about getting in touch with the old family doctor, but decided against it. That would be a last resort, I told myself. I took out a bit of money that I had saved for occasions such as this and decided to splurge on products designed to prevent snoring. At first my wife thought this was a terrible idea, but she thanked me once the snoring stopped. I still feel that this is one of the best investments I’ve ever made, as it essentially saved my marriage and improved my mood and quality of life.
So that’s where I am now, thanks to the products I’ve tried I am no longer plagued by snoring and I feel that I have successfully avoided any chances of developing Sleep Apnea as well. I didn’t need to use any expensive prescription devices or undergo any surgery to get to this point, and though this may not be the case for you, I feel it’s very likely that at least one of the products on this site will have the ability to help you.
Some of the products begin to take effect after a week of use, while other products are not effective if used improperly. A small number of products can even worsen your snoring or Sleep Apnea symptoms if used incorrectly. In my product reviews, you will find that I have addressed all of these concerns and, where applicable, I provide instructions for the proper usage of these products. There’s no reason to throw away a perfectly good product because it confuses you. I don’t want to see you make this mistake.
If you’re here you’re probably going through the same exact thing I was about a year ago. Let me be the first to congratulate you for taking the step to put an end to your snoring! As you’ll find, it’s much easier than you may think. I can’t begin to explain how much better my life is since making this change, and I also feel very stupid for not doing something sooner. Most of our problems have very simple solutions, you just need to want to look for them.
