Default Try a snorkel?

I think I can breathe okay for a beginner, but breathing still throws me off-balance. As one of my regular drills, I swim a few half-lengths face-down. Staying balanced and in good form is soooo much easier when I don't have to breathe. So I'm thinking a snorkel might be a good idea.

(By "breathing okay" I mean I can comfortably breathe bilaterally for 200 or 300 meters. If I breathe every 3 strokes I can stay balanced for a stroke or so, but breathing every two strokes is maddeningly frustrating.)

So what do you say? Suck it up and work harder on integrating breathing, or wimp out and buy a snorkel?
