I absolutely fucking HATE having to sleep with either a full nose or a throat making odd noises everytime I breathe

There is NOTHING (including eating noises) that agitate me more than having to use my mouth for breathing because my nose is full. I'm already addicted to nose spray because I'm sick and I can't breathe at night, but FUCK waking up at 3 in the morning because I can't breathe properly or have too much snot up my canals.

FUCK IT

I can tolerate mouth breathing normally, just so I can control the amount of nose spray I take while I'm sick, but LEAVE ME A LONE AT NIGHT PLEASE

I NEED SLEEP OKAY

>:(

    I think it says on the instructions paper that comes with the spray that you shouldn't use it longer than a week, after that time it's not helping anymore.

    @Pyjong You're right, it still works but afterward the nose tissue becomes inflamed again but worse, and then it becomes an endless cicle

    This is so damn relatable. That nose spray is devilish, I’ve been addicted to it multiple times as well. What I hate about breathing through my mouth is that it becomes drier than the fucking Sahara after a certain amount of time.

    I found a neat hack to break the addiction, though. You just spray one nostril. The other one will remain swollen and full, but the swelling will go away at some point. Then, stop spraying completely so that the other nostril can break the addiction. Usually takes 3-4 weeks to get rid of it that way.

    A good combination is a nasal spray AND frequently blowing your nose. Pulling it in constantly won't help.

    Try steam capsules. I have these eucalyptus capsules, and they work miracles.
    It's kind of annoying to sit with your face in a steamy pot, underneath a towel, but it's worth the hassle.

    @Ansis it’s more of a swelling inside the nose, so blowing your nose barely helps...

    @RantSomeWhere Hey I remember trying that years ago, I'll surely do that!

    I forgot the name of it, but a bottle of warm salt water pumped through your nose (drains out the other nostril if you do it right) is how I help myself when I'm sick. Added benefit of not inflaming my nose further and making the mucus go away.

    Give it a go :)

    @SoulSkrix a Neti pot.

    I've been on and off them, they're weird but can work wonders. Definitely follow the instructions tho - you can get serious infections if you're not careful. Sanitize sanitize sanitize.

    @RantSomeWhere Although it isn't ideal, I can at least breathe during the night

    I'm even able to breathe through the 'bad' hole from time to time

    If I have an important presentation or need to communicate clearly I will surely use it on both, but I'll start using only one spray whenever I can in the future :)
