In Topic: Smoking And Acne

02 July 2013 - 07:16 AM

I smoked cigarettes and i suspect that gave me a lil acne. Now i've smoked weed quite a few times now and  i'm not advocating smoking weed but it feels like that actually did quite a bit for my skin. I got the munchies like mad and i ate a load of stuff that i shouldn't  which would usually give me acne..... but it didn't. 

On several occasions infact.

Now i'm not sayin theres a definite link but....


I'm just puttin it out there...

Thanks guys ya quitting is tough eusa_doh.gif.  I've been really tempted the past week but I just keep thinking about getting a nasty cyst the next morning and I fight through it.  Almost 4 weeks since my last smoke banana.gif  !!

The fabled success thread, never thought i'd make it. 


Anyone reading this, go through my previous content if you wanna find posts about my acne experience,  the link above tells you how to get rid of that last nagging bit of acne. 


Next week i'm going to a nightclub to celebrate my 18th with 12 other people who are on the guest list.  Acne forced me to eat well and exercise and because of it i'm looking good, that is to say i've never been more confident. I just wanna say to anyone on their last legs to not give up. Clear skin is not a carrot on a stick, even though it feels like that sometimes, it will come if you stay focused and remember the real reasons why you're doing this! 

If im honest, i did it for a girl! But it turned out she weren't that great! 


feel free to PM 

and heres a pic from 9 months ago in case you're wondering what i look like:

Great job and thanks for the information!


Personally, it's hard for me to recognize stress when I'm under it. As a result, I just try to take it easy and breathe deeply as much as possible throughout the day. I take whatever time I have to calm myself.  If I'm driving in traffic, I'll use that time to do deep breathing and sort out any niggling issues. Throught the day, I make a conscious effort to slow my mind down when it's racing all over the place. I practise smiling as much as I can (sounds foolish but it works - just smile, whether you feel happy or not). I can report that I feel calmer and happier, and this shows in the skin.

So true, its been proven that you do get happier even if you force a smile. Have one on me :)

i've just had 7 bananas, had some weird craving out of the blue, i'm not stressed but it's in the back of my mind as to whether it will break me out further. I really hope i don't.

I must have  jinxed it or something because i'm breaking out in very small spots suddenly.
Three days ago i got a common cold but i needed a job, so i still went out and walked around town a lot. That day i also had bad stomach cramps and some.....stool problems.The second day i had to go shopping even though i had a cold, despite this i still got better. No stomach problems that day.
As far as i can remember i got ill and then suddenly i started to break out quite a bit, have you ever heard of something like this?
I haven't eaten anything i shouldn't but i guess it could be because i stopped accutane like 5 weeks ago and perhaps that was covering up some food intolerance. I doubt it though.
I've also thought that it's perhaps the FOS or insoluble fibre. Not sure what to think
Lastly i have considered the fact it may be masturbation, but again i doubt it.
Help is appreciated Posted Image

Would appreciate any input.

Digestive problems are a sure sign of inflammation-->acne.

My best tip is to not obsess about the daily ups and downs, but to look at the progression over weeks and months. That's what counts.
Compare it to weightlifting. Some days you'll have a great day and lift heavier than you did the previous day. Other days you'll feel terrible and have to lift lighter weights than usual. However, as long as you increase the weight (progress, get better) over months that is all that matters.
