5 ft height. You are overweight. Snoring is commonly seen when somebody is overweight and has short neck. It is because of narrowing of throat while sleeping. So as air flows there is sound. It can be worsened by alcohol and sleep medicines. Avoid them. You need to exercise and lose weight. You can sleep on one side rather than on back.
