You are supposed to slurp your noodles--it is supposed to mke the soup taste better and show that you are enjoying them. The two businessmen in suits sitting next to me at the ramen restaurant were champion slurpers. They held their chopsticks in their right hands, the soup spoon in their left, and they wolfed the soup down in about 30 seconds.
I tried to slurp, I really did. But some things are just too ingrained. I don't know if years of atrophy have just destroyed my slurping muscles or if it was just too much of a psychological barrier after decades of being taught to eat quietly, but I just don't have the neccessary slurping skills.
Of course, maybe the problem was just that I just couldn't inhale properly since my nose was blocked . . .
