What can I do to stop snoring? As a general guidance, it’s always advised to try out some general preventive measures to stop snoring and see if that helps first before going down more of a serious treatment route.

Some common preventive measures to try out first is to try losing some weight (especially if you’ve got excess fat around your neck), avoid smoking, avoid drinking alcohol (especially just before bed) and to try sleeping on your side rather than lying flat on your back.
