  • Hey there Bwstop Well done for coming forward and admitting this is something you do. It is such a hard move to own up and say look, this is hard. I don't know how to stop this and I welcome support. We are a great little support group and every…
  • Hey guys - a massive warm welcome to Annie and Owen! Lisa, well done for your 18 days. Fabulous. Joy don't you dare restart your count!!! At this stage, don't start recounting until you have spoken with me because we have methods to cover ourselv…
  • Hi Nicky I don't think CBT is the best answer for such a small child, perhaps have a look at the specialist support at https://trichotillomania.co.uk Please would you watch (and like) my video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM5JU5oy1lU I tru…
  • Congratulations ND - for making your own decision and sticking with it. I know it is really hard sometimes. Massive hugs to you and keep resisting those urges! Love and pull freedom Neo
  • I really hope you're feeling better after our chat, Lise x
  • Hi ND, Sorry to see that you sturggled like this. I definitely wouldn't recommend those systems - they're so uncomfortable and they can also permanently damage the hair roots. As Michelle says, I wouldn't shave your head either as I think it will…
  • Hi Anniea, Welcome to the website and I am so sorry to hear about your Dad, even though it was a long while ago - it still hurts, huh? Mine passed away when I was 19 and all these years later I still talk to him and miss him. You are right that y…
  • Hi Everyone I hope your day is going well. I know what you mean, Lisa, it is different weather for June! I thought I would write in here this morning before getting started, I guess to remind myself why I do this work. Busy Friday today and I wa…
  • Wooohooo, come on GIRLS - so proud of you both, Joy and Lisa. I know you have both had some really tough times in the past week or so. You can DO this. Yes, we know people are around and reading the forums. Funny, so many people will put their w…
  • Hi Vick I am so glad you asked this question - let me refer you to the regrowth forum where there is plenty of info - let us know how you get on. in a nutshell, 10 months is no time at all for hair growth and yes, hair grows long after that. Love…

  • Hi Annette, I don't think the behaviour was copied, but more genetic. I'm so glad that you wear cotton gloves. You're doing the right thing - keep posting about how well you are doing because that is a lot healthier than theorising about how it s…

  • Hi Thanks for posting how you felt today, Lisa. I'm getting stuff done at a rate of knots today - feeling like life is getting back to normal slowly. Taking ACTion through urges is the best way to get through them without pulling so well done YO…
  • Wooohoo, you are doing so well, Lisa! I am hoping the weather for today is going to be magnificent - as you know I am in the South of England too. I had a tense start to the day with problems on the website, but I am calming myself down now. Last…
  • (Image) Well there's a beautiful star for both Lisa and Joy, as well as anyone else who lurks here, pull free, pretending not to be here! Well done! Superb job and just keep going. Love and freedom Neo
  • Lisa, you are definitely worthy of your lashes - you can do this ... how long are you going to pledge for this time? Lets get a pledge in here, with a detailed commitment of how you will do it. Just don't sit down!!! Put barbed wire in your undi…
  • Hi Lisa So sorry for not seeing your messages before now - I have been unwell and so busy with people being upset over the implications of global changes. Well done for getting your feather - I have one here and I really love rubbing it across my …
  • How do you feel after half-term? Take things easy, people - remember that the most important person to look after is YOU because if you aren't on tip-top form, then you can't help anyone else. Have a great weekend. Love and freedom Neo
  • Hey Mhairi and thanks to Joy for posting this topic. Hey Lisa and Michelle too! So many positive reasons to stay positive and free of unwanted behaviours. I am sitting on my balcony on 1st Feb in brilliant sunshine, looking out on a beautiful…

  • Hi there Giavanna - what a lovely name!!! Congratulations for trying everything out there. Tric does need a very special approach because of its obsessive nature. I can promise you that you haven't pulled to the point your scalp won't heal. I st…

  • Super progress, here, Lisa. Tric can definitely DO one. Who needs it? It was there to protect us in the past, so that we didn't have to be the loud ones, always complaining and spreading our problems around. Nowadays we have better ways of handl…
  • Aw, guys - you're great. You are right, Lisa, lets have a group hug! This picture isn't a group hug - in fact it is pretty peculiar but I like it (Image) Sorry to hear that you pulled, Lisa and that's just tric telling you not to email me befor…
  • Hi Ladies Sorry to hear you are both in the middle (literally) of a friend situation. Just remember that we are all one being, there is no separation. If one suffers, we all suffer and when one is calm and relaxed it relaxes and calms the rest. …
  • Hi Joy - what's with the cucumbers, lol? Surely there is not another person who (like me) eats whole cucumbers like fruit? My family think it is hilarious! I'm so pleased to hear you have been getting on well with the trichotillomania mp3 - I thin…
  • Well done, Lisa. We really should recognise just how successful it is to stop at ONE hair pulled - very few people with tric can do that! I am really tired today and would love to go back to bed but I have an interview for a documentary on Tric to…
  • Hi Lisa It sounds like you are doing so much positive stuff at the moment. It is important. You're doing really well and I think what's really important is to assess, on that scale of 0-10, how much effort you are putting into your own wellbeing …
  • What a lovely post, Joy. I hope you are feeling better and have a few good days behind you now. If not, maybe now is the time to start afresh? It is interesting that you are so rarely pulling now (we call this PPF or practically pull free) and ye…
  • Hi Worried Mum I am so sorry that you have this condition and yes, it is a challenge to stop our children from copying. I will post a link to our tips page for stopping pulling. Spend a bit of time on the website and poke around - we are on your …
  • I feel really low today! It is getting to me a bit. I have taken action. I made a commitment years ago not to SIT with anxiety (without doing anything about the feeling) so I have put Radio 1 on and have also been getting up every 15 mins to do a…
  • Just saying hello What a busy few weeks we have had - although not so much here in the forums. I hope everyone's doing ok and look forward to chatting with you guys again soon. Love and pull freedom Neo
  • Hi there EB phoenix I just answered a post by you on another topic. I forgot to mention that we will of course support you, no matter what you decide with the intralace. Where partners are concerned, it can be really hard to understand or know ho…
