Women lose 3 weeks' sleep yearly to snoring

It's a finding which may not come as a surprise for many women — one in three of them lose three weeks' of sleep every year because of their husband's snoring, a new study has found.

The survey of 2,500 adults also found that snoring is such a nightmare that 39% of other halves regularly flee to a spare room in search of peace — while one in nine couples sleep apart permanently because of the problem.
And contrary to what women might like to think, it is not just men who are guilty of the habit, although they are the most common perpetrators, according to the study.

Figures obtained by the British Lung Foundation show the problem is causing 39% of adults to miss an average of one-and-a-half hours sleep a night. This works out as 574 hours every year — or nearly 23 days.

The survey also found that nearly a quarter of men (24%) said they were kept awake by their partner, compared with 41% women who complained about their men.

Official figures show the condition affects 4% of middle-aged men and 2%of middle-aged women. But Dame Helena Shovelton , chief executive of the British Lung Foundation said: "If we look at the figures which show that snoring makes a third of people move rooms, it would suggest it could be more common."
