  • Coral Maynard

    I had a very bad habit of picking my spots, no spot was safe... I knew it was bad, I knew there was no benefit, and it did hurt, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't stop... even had a bandage placed over certain spots to stop me! But they would never last much longer than 24 hours. I still pick but am doing much better with it. My solution? I went to hypnotherapy - it was very helpful and useful, but it only works if you both want it to work and believe it works. It's more of a last resort thing, but if nothing else works, this will if you want it to.

    I have a heroin habit going 15 yrs straight trust me their is no equal it as or substance that conjures up even the smallest feeling or any thing that does help in the least to make me even on my most fantastical day dream after I've been awake for a long period and after smoking a few huge party bowl size Indica manifestation filled moments am I capable of quitting using any of the mentioned suggestions in your video sorry and please trust me when I say I've learned my lesson I would never chose to indulge even the tiny amount one time would I ever do once I, or if I get my PRAYERS answered and I find out a way of removing the drug from my life forever would I or could I return for lots of different reason but the major reason of course is it ruins life it is killing my life force needing to get the drug making sure have money for the drug copping the drug always feeling and thinking even hoping every thing will go good the next day is always the last thought I remember before dozing off then it starts agine the same things in the same way with the same adicted mind set. Please trust me do not even try it once don't tempt fate it isn't worth the ways it is now the in control it is using you not you using the drug when you do a drug everyday just to feel the way normal folks do by not sitting in your pants not being able to control your muscle spasms throwing up until there isn't anything left in your tummy but still now it will be dry heaving that replaces forget sleeping for about 4-7 days depending how high your addiction has grown depending on the amount you needed just to be a normal (looking) person it could very well be more than that I know I can't stop you all I can do is give you my reason the he list life I manifested for myself is not one even the cruelest of human being should find them selves going through. I know a bit after 15 yrs running without a clean period to be had now having said that my mother introduced me to heroin when I was 15 yrs old so I have been going through periods of clean and periods of being dirty mostly dirty unfortunately I must admit.

    That explains why I usually go to the bathroom at the same time every school day. It might be the same on stay-home days, too, but for obvious reasons, it's harder to measure on those days.

    While people may want to stop eating late at night due to myths, there is nothing wrong with eating late at night. If you don't want to get fat but like eating late at night, ((I'll give you a less like scenario): If you want to be fat but never eat late at night), I have good news for you!!!!! Calories are equally fattening at times of day (or night)!!!!!!!!

    Breaking bad habits is simply a game of mindset and discipline. You have to make quitting the bad habit so important to you that you have NO OPTION but to quit. You must deeply prioritize your greatest values to create good habits.

      Natalya Ziff well I don't know for sure but my guess is simply DNA. Different genes code for different colours. Why do people come in a multitude of different colours and shades of these colours? DNA
