Know that, for must users, it is a journey not an overnight fix. Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones, but if not, know that it is a journey for the majority. Persistence and perseverance are keys.

I agree, I am in the process of trying to find a mask that I can wear that seals with out ratchet strapping it to my face. I ordered one that a friend has been using with great success. I don’t mind the process , just need for the mask to be comfortable. Thank you for the welcomes .

RE: New guy
Most masks are designed to seal without being super tight on the face. In fact, overtightening causes air leaks.

Here's a good wiki article to help.
