I suggest that your husband consults an ENT specialist for an examination and treatment, as there are many causes for snoring. With the correct diagnosis, the best treatment can be prescribed.

Hi,

I am not a doc but my husband has got the same problem, smoking and drinking alchol before going to bed or in great quantities makes the snoring even worse. This has something to do with the stuff in alcohol and cigarrettes that makes the lining or something in the throat go numb or relax and this cause the snoring. Also when eating large plates of food at night. I thouht when he stopped smoking that the snoring will stop but not, he has to abbsolutely drink or eat nothing before going to bed, every night is a restless one. Hope it gets better.
