The A-Z of living with a snorer

Living with a snorer who won't treat their problem is frustrating.  Show this A-Z to the snorer in your life and let them know what you go through each night!

 

A - Alarm

A thing of the past.  It’s completely redundant as you’ve been awake all night anyway.

B - Bedtime blues

That feeling you get as you climb in to bed, knowing that a good night’s sleep is a mere fantasy.

C - Couch

Sure the couch isn’t as comfy as your bed. But at least you don’t have to share it with a hibernating bear.

D - Denial

The stage your partner seems stuck in.  Them?  A snorer?  Never!

E - Ear plugs

The industrial strength ones they use on airfields.  They can block out a low flying plane, but not your partner.

F - F words

You are normally polite and well mannered.  But after the 5th time being woken up, you go from Queen Elizabeth to Brian Blessed in an instant.

G - Groundhog Day

If your life was a film, this would be it.  The same thing every night.  But without Bill Murray.

H - Herbal tea

Aromatherapy, meditation, counting sheep.  Nothing will help you fall asleep before snore o’clock.

I - Insane rage

You’re pretty sure you loved your partner before you went to bed.  But the red mist has descended and are on the verge of filing for divorce at 2am.

J - Jealousy

You are jealous of your single friends who get to sleep alone.  Jealous of the man opposite you on the train who sleeps in his seat.  Jealous of your partner snoring away.

K – Kick, elbow, pinch, repeat.

Your nightly choreographed routine for trying to stop your partner snoring.

L - "Light sleeper"

Oh, gosh!  How silly of you! It’s not your partner’s snoring that’s the problem, it’s that you’re a light sleeper. 

M - Marriage

That silly contract you entered in to before you realised your partner moonlighted as a bulldozer.

N - Naps

You’re pretty sure they’re the only reason you can function right now.  That, and caffeine.

O - Orthopedic mattress

The one you spent £300 on, thinking it would give you a good night's sleep. Not doing much when you're sleeping on the sofa.

P - Pillows

What you once saw as a comfortable place to lay your head now seems more appealing as a weapon to suffocate your partner with.

Q - Quiet

The blissful split second between snores when you try to kid yourself that the snoring has stopped.

R - Real life

That thing you're so tired you’ve completely lost touch with.  Is that ketchup on your shirt?  Did you forget your dentist appointment?  Who even cares?

S - Spooning

What other couples do; something you couldn’t even dream of, for fear of a burst ear drum.

T - Torture

Did you know sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture?

U - Undead

Looking like an extra from The Walking Dead has become the norm.  And you’re past the point of caring.

V - Video evidence

The only way to prove to your partner that they snore.  And they will still find a way to deny it.

W - Wine

Lots and lots of wine.  Surely there is no other way to successfully fall asleep next to a snorer than to pass out drunk?

X

Exactly what your partner is going to become if they do not SHUT UP.  Your ex.

Y – “Yes boss, I WILL work that night shift”

Just so you can sleep in the day when your partner isn’t home.

Z - Zzz

The noise you wish you were making, but fear you may never, ever make again.

Want your partner to stop snoring? You're not alone!

3 couples, 1 week, 0 snoring!

As part of National Stop Snoring Week (20-25th April), we decided to run a Facebook competition - the Snoreeze Good Night Challenge

3 couples worked with us to end their snoring nightmares and get a good night's sleep.  The couples had used our products during the week and rated their sleep out of 10.  The prize for the couple who made the most progress was £150 to spend at Next, so there was a lot at stake!  


Click the names below to see how each couple got on:

 

 

Debbie and Stuart

Debbie and Stuart have 6 children, but both snore.  We knew straight away that we wanted to help them as children can be so demanding, even when you have had a good night's kip!

 

What products did they use?

We spoke to Debbie and after a few quick questions, decided that both her and Stuart's snoring was multifactoral - caused by vibrations in their throats, and made worse by finding it hard to breathe through their noses at night.  We sent them some Nasal StripsNasal Spray, and Oral Strips in the hope that the combination of products would help to solve their problem.  (If you'd like to see what products would be best for you, visit our Diagnose Your Snoring page.)

 

Did it work?

Debbie and Stuart tried the Nasal products alone at first, and managed to get some really good results.  But, we knew things could improve even more if they tried the Oral Strips, too.  We weren't wrong as Debbie said they had a 'flawless night's sleep' and she was 'amazed'.  

Debbie even cheekily combined her score cards to give the Snoreeze products 11/10 one night.  We were so happy that the products worked so well for Debbie and Stuart and decided to award them a runners up prize of £75 of Next vouchers!Snoreeze Product Review

Georgina and John

Georgina got in touch and told us she was keeping John awake night after night with her snoring.  We wanted to help them to both sleep through the night and show people that your mornings can be so much happier when you have slept well.

 

What products did she use?

We spoke to Georgina and decided that like most people, her snoring was caused by vibrations in the back of the throat.  We sent her some Oral Strips to try as they are a favourite with our customers.  Later on in the week we sent Georgina a Throat Spray to try too, and this was her personal favourite! (If you'd like to see what products would be best for you, visit our Diagnose Your Snoring page.)

 

Did it work?

Georgina tried the Oral Strips first, and although they stopped her snoring and left her husband 'happy and well rested', using a strip wasn't her preferred method of stopping her snoring.  However, when Georgina used our Throat Spray, everyting slid perfectly in to place.  Georgina described the spray as 'very easy to use' with a 'lovely minty flavour', and she scored her sleep a 10/10 - perfect! We loved how entusiastic Georgina was about taking part in the Good Night Challenge, and we awarded her a runner up prize of £75 of Next vouchers!

Does Snoreeze work?

 

Gemma and Stefan

When Gemma entered the competition, she told us that her husband sounded like a 'warthog' at night, and that between his snoring and being woken by their newborn baby, sleep was a struggle!  We wanted to help Gemma to get the sleep she deserves, and to encourage Stefan that relieving his snoring would be beneficial for them both.

 

What products did he use?

We spoke to Gemma and decided that like most people, Stefan's snoring was caused by vibrations in the back of the throat.  We sent Stefan a Throat Spray to use throughout the week. (If you'd like to see what products would be best for you, visit our Diagnose Your Snoring page.)

 

Did it work?

Gemma admitted to being skeptical about whether a simple spray could stop Stefan from snoring, but we were happy to hear that she was pleasantly surprised! Gemma even went as far as saying she had no use for the spare bed, because she was now happy to share a room with Stefan without needing to escape his snoring! We loved Gemma's creative take on reporting her scores to us and she was awarded first prize of the £150 Next voucher!

Will Snoreeze work for me?

We really hope that all 3 couples continue using the products, and can finally say goodbye to snoring and hello to great sleep and happy mornings!

The bedroom nightmare giving women sleepless nights

In our most recent survey, carried out by YouGov, a massive 93% of UK women in relationships have said that their partner snores at some point.

Snoring is often laughed off as a bit of a joke; but 75% of women with snoring partners admitted that the problem has some sort of effect on their life or relationship.

Of the 75% of women that say their partner’s snoring has impacted on their life:

  • 26% say they have gone to bed first in order to get to sleep before their snoring partner
  • 87% say that they have shook, nudged, or kicked their partner to silence them
  • More than 3 out of 10 (31%) admitted sleeping in separate bedrooms in order to get a good night’s sleep
  • 9% even admit that they have considered putting a pillow over their snoring partner’s face while they sleep

Snoring can cause many problems not because it disturbs the snorer, but because it disturbs their partner. 

  • 59% of women say a disturbed night’s sleep leaves them feeling irritable
  • 33% say it leaves them emotionally sensitive
  • 24% say they feel resentful towards the person that has disturbed them

Looking at these statistics, it is no wonder that snoring can cause so many relationship issues.  Despite this, only 13% of women with a snoring partner said they or their partner had ever purchased a snoring relief product.  This means that there are a lot of partners across the UK being disturbed, and a lot of relationships left to suffer.
