Breathe Right Nasal Strips

Ever seen those commercials for Breathe Right Nasal Strips? They’re those strippy things you put on your nose at night to stop snoring.

Y’know how much those things cost? They’re about $23/box. Now I think the box has about 30 of them in it so I guess it’s not even a buck a strip, but still, that seems expensive for a good night’s sleep.

Anyway, I bought a box. My honey can snore the face off a trout (whatever that means), and apparently so can I. When I told him that I’d bought these for his snoring and for me too sometimes, since I snore sometimes, he told me that I snore all the time. All the time? I snore all the time? Hmph, I didn’t know that.

The difference between my snoring and his snoring is that he likes to listen to me snore. I think it helps put him to sleep… when I’m not snoring the shoes off the bacon. And his snoring? Holy crap. It wakes me up when I’m trying to sleep in. I may sleep through it all night, but as soon as I get up to pee, he subconsciously thinks that he’s got the bed to himself, and he feels free to snore to his heart’s content – really loudly and unabashedly. So when I go back to bed, I usually can’t sleep through all that thunderous roar.

So I’ve got these strips. I haven’t tried them. They’ve been sitting here for a week now and I’ve yet to stick one on my nose or his. Maybe we’ll try it tomorrow night – then I can test whether I can sleep in silence on Saturday morning. Although I’ll probably get up to pee and not be able to get back to sleep anyway, I’m so used to getting up at 6:00 a.m.

I’ll let you know what I think of them.

    Maybe a nice idea for Valentine’s day. It’s a different kind of a strip ;)

  3. I hope the Breathe Right Strips work for you (but they are not that expensive are they?) Different snoring remedies work fir different people depending on your snoring type. There’s quite a good self-test at http://www.putanendtosnoring.com

  4. Ear plugs work way better – I have these ones rated to reduce ambient noise by 32 decibels. My hubby has sleep apnea (and no cpap) and my ear plugs block out his snoring (and the kids crying for mommy in the night).

    I don’t get it. An article about breathe right strips that she never used? Am I missing something here?

  9. jafer says:

    It’s not an article about the strips, m. It’s an article about my life and buying the strips. I don’t work for the company, so you’ll have to excuse me if I’m just blogging about things in my life. That’s what you’re missing.

    Snoring is primarily a result of an obstruction in the air passage

    Snoring can be classified as mild and excessive.
    In mild cases of snoring, snoring can help you to this.
    If you snore while lying on your back then practice sleeping on your side.
    This will help you breathe easier.

    Substances known to hold off mucus (that triggers snoring) from draining are fatty dairy products while sleeping pills and other sedatives have components that relax the muscle tone in the neck that results to flabby and collapsing soft tissues (these triggers vibrations as well).
    Besides the physical benefits and a regular endurance training to have, can also be a solution for snoring.
