After trying various nasal strips and sprays with no success, I pretty much licked my snoring problem (to my wife's relief) by the simple method of exercising the soft palate on the roof of my mouth; a flabby palate is the source of the problem for many snorers, I understand. It's a bit difficult to describe how to do it. The closest I can come is to say: with the top of your tongue held against your palate, suck hard on the back of your tongue. Experiment with it a little; when you get it right, you'll feel the muscles in the palate start to strain and tighten. I try to do this exercise several minutes each day, and it really seems to work. Good luck!
