Mouth leaks - can "training" help?

RE: Mouth leaks - can "training" help?
I woke up and actually thought: "Is this thing on?" Yep this happens quite often with me, put a hand by the vent.

You are getting there! It can happen.

Talk intelligibly with the cpap on.
Drink some water...beginners can use a straw.
Inhale at the mouth and exhale from the nose, then when you're good at that, reverse.

All of this can be done, and practicing it gives you REAL control and understanding of air pressure. You'll look pretty silly in the first attempts, so video is encouraged. I'm not kidding, it not only can be done, it can become easy.

Thanks. This was very helpful.

At some point in trying all of the above, I "discovered" something I hadn't been able to before and closed off whatever door it was that I was having trouble closing. At one point last night, I woke up and actually thought: "Is this thing on?" because I didn't notice it.

I'm sure I still need practice, but this was very helpful and reduced my mouth leaks considerably.

Well thanks for that! I really appreciate the feedback I might not be a nut. Thanks
