I agree with Andy.

I thought I was a mouth breather, but a nasal mask is what works best for me.  I automatically learned the tongue technique withouteven realizing what I was doing.

I love the nasal masks I use (DreamWear and P10), but have a FFM (Amara View) for backup if I am having a night where I really want to breathe through my mouth.
