I did and it worked better, of course, I had to breath through my nose. So I conclude if breathing through the nose helped why did I need the machine. I tried something they wouldn't recommend I starting sleeping without the machine just with mouth taped, it worked I was able to sleep better. Then I discovered sleeping on my back was the problem so I started sleeping on my left side alternating to my right side but never on my back. That helped greatly. Several months later i tried dispensing taping my mouth. WOW! it worked.
