In brief: Yes

There are a few things you can try.
Long term - losing weight, exercising regularly and avoiding alcohol all will help. Short term - lying on one's side is probably the best technique. Nasal strips (like breathe rite) work pretty well for some people. There are various devices - chin straps, mouth guards, etc. All are helpful for some people. You have to try them to know what will work for you.

In brief: Sleep on your side

Snoring occurs more often when you sleep on your back.
Try sleeping on your side. You can even buy pj's or belts with tennis balls inserted that keep you from sleeping on your back. But...Robust snoring may be an idicator of a more serious condition called sleep apnea. Talk to your primary care physician to rule out any throat/tonsil problems, and to direct you for a sleep study if needed.
