They can: Depending on what is obstructed in your airway they can help. If your nose is narrow and congested at night then breathing better through it will help. The breathe right strips work very well for a lot of people but not all. The best thing to do is try them. One thing, though, they tell you to wear it too high on the packaging. The correct place is lower than where they say to wear it.

Possible but : Nasal strips can stop snoring if the cause is from the nasal cavity. Often snoring is from a constricted airway (back of the throat). Possible but unlikely. Hope it works.
