It's a myth that over-weight people are the only one's that snore. Men often snore and women snore more during menopause (when periods stop.) Stress can attribute to snoring (when a person isn't in REM sleep.) The other side of the coin is there could be polyps in the nose. Deep snoring is NOT good for anyone! There are good snoring aids at your pharmacist such as the strip (which opens up the nostrils.) If you find this doesn't help then please see your doctor. Good luck
