2. Life-style change
Life-style changes can also help ease snoring, and among them are avoiding alcohol before bed, and losing weight. Many people enjoy a glass of wine, or other drink before bed, and this may be the cause of some snoring. Alcohol acts as a muscle relaxant, allowing the soft tissues at the back of your mouth and throat to collapse inwards. There is also a positive relationship between obesity and snoring. It is believed that extra weight put on around the neck puts pressure on the soft tissues in the throat and can case them to collapse in during sleep.
