Everyone knows that sleeping next to a snorer can make you well and truly dread bedtime. But now, it looks like there could be a saving grace. There's a new device on the market that promises to solve all your snoring-related problems

This is impossible.

If only he could be awake 100 percent of the time. Maybe you should take up snoring!


We get it. You're good at sleeping. Do you have to rub it in?


That's true love right there, folks. Also, they are not joking about the smothering.

This is smart!

Now you can keep track of your progress. Maybe go for a new record tonight?

One small favor.

This is nicer than I would be. I would tell them to sleep in another room.

A taste of their own medicine.

How do you like that?! Pretty hard to sleep, isn't it? ISN'T IT?!


Well, dogs are adorable and you can train them to do tricks. Does your husband do any tricks?

It's a process.

They might wake up and stop briefly after step 6, but you better believe you're going to be right back at step one once they fall back to sleep.

Keep that pillow handy.

I'm convinced that pillows were invented as weapons first and as sleep aids second. By someone whose partner snored, obviously.

I can tell.

You should probably start preparing now. Start working out so you can roll him over. Get a recording device, or invest in some earplugs.

It was only a dream.

It's like I could feel the sound of gravel being ground. Almost as if it was happening right next to my ear. Weird, huh?

Charge 'em up!

If my partner snored, you better believe I would have a pair of noise-canceling headphones. And a backup pair.

Yeah, right.

I don't think I've ever met a self-aware snorer. Why do you think that is?

What a difference 15 years makes.

Although, honestly, I think 15 years is pretty generous. I've only been married for 1 year, and I would absolutely say the second sentence if necessary.

Roll over!

It didn't help though, did it? Of course, it didn't.

This is important.

Who cares about the genotype? This should probably be the first question, honestly.

Not guilty!

You can't blame snorers for snoring. They can't help it! Of course, the same can be said for whatever you do in retaliation.


Critics called it a bit of a snoozefest. Also, spoiler alert: nothing the man did worked.

Don't forget!

Anyone who has tried to sleep next to a snoring person knows that it is, in fact, possible to hate someone when they're asleep. It's not even that hard!

They're all guilty!

Are you a man? Then you probably snore! And you probably complain about it!

Nicely warmed up?

Well, there's a new device on the market that promises to solve all your snoring-related problems.

You might finally be able to get a good night's sleep!

Thanks to this brand new gadget, you might be able to silence your partners snoring.

Professor Anshul Sama has created something incredible.

The NHS surgeon and sleep disorder specialist has invented the Snoozeal.

The Snoozeal claims to silence snoring.

It has to be worn for twenty minutes a day for 6 weeks to notice any improvements.

It's for the greater good.

Twenty minutes is nothing compared to a lifetime of sleepless nights.

You don't wear it at night.

The flexible device fits at the base of your mouth and rests against each side of the tongue.

It doesn't hurt.

The 2 electrodes that sit either side of your tongue zap it with a tiny current that you have full control over.

It is connected to your smartphone.

The current is said to tighten the weak muscles in your tongue and throat which are usually what causes people to snore.

The app then records your sleep.

Which you can check in the morning to see if your snoring has improved.

The invention is hopefully launching later this year.

It has been backed by private and government funding.

Prof Sama has been refining his invention for years.

He said: “Many devices on offer do not work and are unpopular because they have to be worn at night, so my aim was to develop something that could be used for a short period of time once during the day."

And it works!

Following human trials of both men and women in London and Germany, the Snoozeal worked at stopping patients snoring in seventy percent of cases.

There were people it didn't help.

For those whose snoring wasn't eliminated, it was significantly reduced.

Bhik Kotchea was the professor who ran the trial.

He said: "The patients liked it and the results were very encouraging."

Fifty-year-old Louise Fitzpatrick has credited this device for getting rid of her snoring, which her and her husband have had to deal with for ten years.

She had tried everything to help cure her snoring.

She tried mouth-guards and over the counter remedies, but with no luck or hope of ever getting rid of her problem.

Then Louise tried the Snoozeal.

Louise said: "I was resigned to surgery but within a couple of weeks on the Snoozeal trial I started to notice a change, and by the end of the six weeks, I was hardly snoring at all. I was amazed. I’m now less tired and I no longer get complaints from Martin." Losing weight, getting fitter, and stopping drinking alcohol are all the other ways to help lessen your snoring problem.
