So, What is Snoring?

As a summary, the first paragraph of one of my articles is repeated as follows; ‘In plain terms; snoring is the sound made while sleeping when air movement is obstructed. In other words; snoring is when air is restricted through the nose and mouth because of the narrowing of airways. The resulted sound could be soft, imitating more of a loud breathing, but the sounds can also be loud and unpleasant for those who have to hear it.’

Hence the name

NameplateSo what’s in a name, more to the point; why StoptheRumble? Well, probably because Stopsawinglogs sounds like a carpentry site, and because StopSnoring is frankly; a bit boring.

The snoring sound is compared to the sound of sawing logs, and to the sound that thunder makes when amplified, a rumbling sound. Hence the name; StoptheRumble.


Picture this……

So imagine this scenario; you manage to finally drag yourself to bed at around 00H30 after a long day of hard work. You hold two jobs to Working Hardkeep the cupboards full of food and cloths on every one’s back. So when you get back home at around midnight after working your second job, your wife and two kids are already fast asleep. You get your food in the microwave where your wife graciously leaves it for you every night. You eat it down very quickly and there is barely time to take a breath, because at 6 o’clock you have to get up again for your daytime work. On the way to your room, you pass the kids to give them a kiss goodnight. A quick visit to the bathroom and you gently get in bed, being extra careful not to wake your wife. As per normal, you lie a bit on your back to reflect on the day and to start dosing off, and then you turn on your side ready to fall asleep. It only takes a few minutes for you to fall asleep, as you are normally exhausted by the time you get to bed. Just before you are fast asleep it happens; that all familiar rumbling sound the sound that can make grown men cry. NOT AGAIN!!! Just your luck, your wife is snoring…..again!Whatever

Now this scenario could be a little different for you. In most cases the snorer will be the man (sorry guys), as snoring mostly occurs in men. It does happen however that women do snore, and I know this because the above example is very close to home. 😉

So to be fair lets imagine another short scenario; you are fast asleep next to your husband/boyfriend, when you suddenly get woken by this awful loud rumbling sound. It sounds as if somebody is trying to break into your house with a wooden saw. After a few seconds of being completely disorientated, you realize it is your bloody man that is snoring…..again!

So, are you in any of these pictures? Changes are the answer is yes, because firstly; snoring affects between 30% and 50% of all people, according to some studies done, and secondly; if you are reading this you are probably here looking for answers. 🙂
