Hm, maybe you could start like, eating a mint or something whenever you feel it coming on to keep your mouth occupied and to train your brain against this habit? Try your very hardest to disconnect the two habits in your mind! You can also try just reading one word at a time and rewarding yourself everytime you don't mouth it to train your brain in that way! Good luck!

searching for myself...
and hugs. mostly hugs.

I agree with Faith.

The good thing is that because you are conscious that you're doing it, you can try to stop it. It's just a matter of willpower.

Try a mint, or just try pushing your tongue to the roof of your mouth and keeping it there.

If it's not visible to others though, I wouldn't worry too much.
