Is It Just Me Or Are My Nostrils Getting Bigger?
I am using a nasal pillow mask. I am starting to think my nostril openings are getting bigger. Stretched. Enlarged. Will it stop?

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
