In brief: See your doctor
Snoring indicates that air is not flowing freely to your lungs.
Most commonly it indicates sleep apnea. Talk to your doctor about a sleep study.

In brief: Snoring
Snoring is caused by the airway being occluded during sleep by laxity in the throat or sickness such as a cold.
There are some pillows you can get that help force a posture that aims to prevent this. If you are stopping breathing in the middle of the night this could be sleep apnea. Apnea frequently causes snoring and can be evaluated by a physician.

In brief: Prevent snoring
Through the guy out of the bed.
Seriously snoring usually is about weight and sleeping position. Try using a foam pillow, sleeping on your side, and losing weight if possible. There are appliances which can help the serious snorer as well as some throat surgeries which have a modest degree of effectiveness. Discuss this with your otolaryngologist.
