Snoring! A habit, which actually no one likes. If someone is snoring occasionally then that is not a matter of issue, but if this is a regular thing then that is something to worry about. The noises are like wheezes, whistles or rattles that not only irritates your partner but also block your airway. Clogged and chronic snoring is also a symptom, of a potentially serious condition of heart disease which is known as obstructive sleep apnea.
