hair pulling... - February 28th 2013, 11:58 PM

I've been doing it since I was 11, and its almost an unconscious thing now. I've tried many times to break myself of it, but don't know how... Any tips?

Find something that keeps your hands busy during those times. Sewing, playing video games, etc. That should help limit if not completely stop the hair pulling.

I have a similar problem - I pull strands of my hair out and put them in my mouth >_< Not attractive ...








Do we remember all the sad things that happened before today, or have we forgotten them?

S tough to stop and hard to even realise you do it sometimes
