I'm so proud of you and I don't even know you! I told my counselor and it was embarrassing but since he's a professional he didn't judge me or look at me funny. He's just helping me get through it! totally worth it! I'd like to do a challenge too, would you want to restart it long with me?

Day 77: The final count down. I'm a bit sad that I picked the day before yesterday. I am beginning to miss my colleagues, I need people around me. I'm busy studying now and will start looking for a new job on monday. I have decided to cut the coffee from my daily routine. I love coffee, but it makes me feel anxious after a cup and I realized that my body doesn't want coffee. :( But even though I'm really sleepy and a bit depressed today I feel great physically.

hi basta, - im currently on week 4 of cutting down to 2 coffees per day. it has made a real difference as i was on 4-5 coffees per day. strong. - now i not only sleep better generally but also most significantly, i dream - loads of vivid dreams. I am pleased about this because i had not dreamt for months, if not years? i think this was due to not winding down enough to allow my nervous system to slow down and operate the dream mechanism in my brain - coffee is great in the morning but it does effect me more now, especially now im not picking, it accentuates the feelings too much and prevents me 'shutting-off' my thoughts. The only thing to watch out for though is sometimes giving up caffeine suddenly can contribute to skullcracker headaches. if this happens, just wean off a little slower. good luck basta with this and only 3 days to go! glad you are feeling great physically. :)

Day 80! I'm done with the challenge and feel free!!! I don't really have this terrible urge to pick and this was what I wanted. I was "asleep" before picking every day. Now I feel like I have one problem less :) So happpy!!! My skin has loved me for this. It doesn't produce this much oil as before (I guess I was stimulating the production by squeezing the pores all the time) and I look so much better!!!! I have thought about making one more commitment (100 days) but I will not now. I will take a break and see if I'll do well on my own. It feels "normal" not to pick, that's a great progress. Even though I have made mistakes during this last commitment, I have made a huge progress!!! When I look into the mirror now, I don't search for imperfections but see some other things like beautiful eyes, eyebrows and lips :) Good luck to everyone here! I will come back here and read the forum occasionally but right now I'm flying away from the nest.
