Back to day 1 for me. I'm not that bothered to be honest, I made it like 10 days which is better than last time so next time I'll try go even further.
My skin doesn't seem to have changed (yet) and I've been using Panoxyl for about a week which is really helping to prevent new breakouts. Even if I do get a breakout, it disappears within a day.
Today, for the first time in two weeks, I woke up without any new breakouts My skin looks a lot better than it did when I started, red marks are still fading too. It is getting harder to resist temptations although I've found some ways to take my mind off it (going for a walk, play a video game, take a cold shower etc).
Feeling pretty good, no urges so far. My skin looks about the same. I was thinking about trying Panoxyl again as last time I tried it I wasn't trying this experiment so maybe both at the same time would have better results . Not sure if I can cope with the dry skin that comes with it though lol.
I've found that my skin gets a lot more oily when I'm clean shaven. I find that using an electric razor to trim it down works better and I guess it doesn't irritate the skin as much.
This is my biggest problem actually, I just end up watching porn usually because of boredom and I need to do something to pass the time. I'll try doing the things you said though thanks for the help guys
Think I'm gonna start taking pictures daily too, that way if I feel the urge to masturbate I can look back at the pics and see where I'm going to go back to if I do masturbate.

- Really shows how much this can improve your mental health not just your physical appearance.
Spots from yesterday have started to heal, and the number of blackheads on my nose has improved. Think I might need to stay away from my laptop for while now though, the temptations are getting difficult to handle lol.
I heard that if you want to use zinc for acne it has to be something called "chelated" zinc. I've tried the normal zinc tablets and they had no effect.
Not many changes since last post. Although today I woke up and I had like a million blackheads on my nose and a couple of new spots around my chin. Can't wait 'till I get past the first week as that's when I usually see big improvements
Thanks, I've actually tried it before loads of times and had really good results. My best was 2 weeks and my skin looked really good. So I know it works, it's just hard to get the will power to do it, which is why I'm gonna start posting here with you guys and see if that makes things easier
