  1. AFTERWORD July 14th 2008 I no longer visit this website, its message board, or any of the threads containing my old posts, nor do I check my inbox for PMs. My account is effectively defunct. I've long since cleared up and have gratefully and gladly moved on to other things in my life. I sincerely wish the same for you, and I hope that my program may play some part in your solution. I just wanted to come back here one last time, and take a minute to say a couple of things: 1) A lot of people h
  2. it's important to note that 'minimizing' pores is a cosmetic term while 'shrinking' pores is a pharmaceutical term. That is to say, you can minimize the appearance of your pores short-term using a variety of topical (surface) methods, but you can only physically alter pore size from within, specifically through Accutane (though proponents of mega-dose vitamin B5 for treating acne also claim that pores can literally shrink as a pleasant perk with such a regimen). Outside of Accutane (which leav
  3. The consensus among dermatologists is that optimal remission of acne is best ensured with a cumulative course dosage of about 120-125mg/kg. You weigh 52kg and 40mg/day over 5 months is 6000mg, so in your case that's a cumulative course dosage of 115mg/kg; just a little shy of the ideal, but close enough. 1-2 weeks more than what your derm suggests would be the perfect course, but......... derms know best.
  4. Wow I can totally relate to your post! You're right that when it comes to diet for acne vs bodybuilding, it seems like it's basically an either/or situation; either your skin or your body-- your choice! Sucks, don't it. You CAN compromise, but I totally know what you mean about the convenience of just drinking 3 pints of milk a day in order to guarantee your optimal protein intake. It is worth eliminating dairy from your diet for a few weeks just to see if this makes the difference-- for some pe
  5. LOL I don't think black kids feel a need to act gangsta, but it sure seems like a lot of white kids do! Why are there no black goths? I have no idea. Anyone care to suggest why? I'll try a theory: goths emerged as a clique in high schools among kids who couldn't otherwise fit in somehow and so sought to exist outside the system altogether, cynically commentating from the corner. In high school, in general, if you're black-- given the black-is-cool pop cultural environment of today (hip-hop b
  6. ^^ I'd appreciate a follow-up clarification on this as well. What exactly did you do wrong?
  7. I think of goths as a cross between the Stoics; Brandon Lee in The Crow; heroin chic if Calvin Klein sold leather trench-coats; shoplifted mascara; and French existentialist clowns.
  8. Sociologically speaking, gothsluts are an especially fascinating sub-clique. LOL

  10. Anyone ever notice that you never see black Goths?
  11. IMO a properly supervised low-dose course of Accutane (20-40mg over whatever period necessary to achieve a cumulative dosage of 125mg/kg) is not only safer for the average patient than long-term use of antibiotics but in almost all cases will clear you entirely and for good, whereas antibiotics have an embarrassingly low success rate. I know you have all heard about the murderous side-effects of Accutane, but these are very, very, very, very rare, and almost always emerge in cases where the pati
  12. Most married men do not have acne because most adult males do not have acne. Adolescence is hormonally characterized by elevated levels of androgens and IGF-1, which, in individuals with oversensitive oil gland receptors and/or hyperkeratinising intrafollicular dermal cells, can result in increased probability and severity of acne breakouts. These elevated androgen levels are necessary for proper sexual development and maturation, after which (in post-adolescence, i.e. early 20s), androgen lev
  13. One thing for hell is sure, you're not going to get your mind off acne if you spend more than an hour a day here.
  14. LOL yes it's true, but strangely enough all the paradoxically attractive young people always sit by the windows so you see them as you pass by, but as soon as you get inside the McDonald's, away from the windows, it is full of unhealthy-looking and fat people. It's quite remarkable actually how this works out, I really recommend you test this for yourself if you don't believe me! Though bear in mind that obesity with or without a McDonald's diet is far less common in the UK, most probably becaus
  15. Hm, I once thought about this a great deal myself. And perhaps it is highly unethical of me to even impart my thoughts on the matter, lest they encourage someone to do something foolish. I am not a dermatologist, nor am I a con artist. I just like to think about these kinds of things. If the following is inappropriate then of course a mod is free to delete it: Now I'm not condoning self-medicating here, but hypothetically... It is perfectly possible, IF someone were truly determined and at le
