We have been married for 18 years now. I work in IT and my wife is a physical therapist who chooses to stay at home with our daughter and be a full-time mom (the most demanding of jobs!). I started experiencing significant sleeping problems about 15 years ago. At one point I got in trouble for falling asleep at work because of bad sleep. I was able to address this by losing some weight and getting in better shape, but my sleep problems continued. My wife told me I made regular, but sudden, snoring noises. My snoring pattern was to breath heavily, then not at all, then snore loudly. It was pretty disturbing at its loudest. There were many nights when she would elbow me or I would move to the guest room voluntarily because of my snoring.
I had looked at a few snoring solutions, but nothing appealed to me. I couldn't stand the idea of having something in my mouth or nose. But when I heard of Smart Nora I decided to give it a try. I have to say it has made a big difference in my sleep and our marriage. I think the Smart Nora has trained me to be more sensitive to my own snoring. Given my snoring pattern, Smart Nora is ideal for me. My louder breathing triggers the unit and I'll change position, which prevents me from getting to the actual snoring stage.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find that I routinely wake up with more energy. I also really like that the Smart Nora is so easily portable. We've taken it on several trips and it works great anywhere we go. Now I don't travel without it. I'd recommend that anyone with snoring issues to give Smart Nora a try.
