  • Hello @cruroltab4 I am a frequent eyelash (eyebrow, nose & scalp!) puller too! Many of us are. It seems if I can get a handle on my lash pulling, then I'm struggling with my scalp and vice versa 🥴 Eyelashes are tough because visible gaps can …
  • Congrats @R2021 on keeping the Scalp Pull-free going AND for starting another streak again with your lashes!! I recently blew a 4 day pull free stretch, but just like you, I'm starting over 👍 You are right, we ARE human and we are gonna slip up som…
  • Hang in there @mina67 🤗 You'll definitely find plenty of supporters here! Going totally Pull-Free is such a rollercoaster of a journey. It's gonna take some time. But you WILL get there! You've already had success once for 3 weeks. I think that's…
  • Well @Michelle Harper it's been about 10 days since my last post and I think I'm feeling 'better' but still not where I want to be. I'm coming off a pretty intense pull session from yesterday, but I do feel as though I'm coming out of my slump now. …
  • Congrats @Danielle !!!! I am sooo jealous right now 😉 There's hope for us all!!
  • Oops.... trouble with internet 🥴 But telling someone and sharing your story is HUGE!! One of the basic first steps is starting a Pull-Journal. Writing down when & where you pull and how you're feeling at the time may lead to discovering the…
  • Welcome aboard @charlie !! First and foremost, please know you are NOT alone. There are plenty of supportive people on this forum that have been suffering for years. While I am not one of the super successful ones that have been able to give up pull…
  • Thanks for checking on me @Michelle Harper Unfortunately I've really been struggling lately. 😔 For the last 10 days or so, I've been finding it hard to get in a straight 24 hours of not pulling. I've been pulling a lot at work too, which is unusual…
  • Well guys here's my latest update.... It's been a rollercoaster as usual. Had some solid pull-free streaks (6, 6, 4.5, 3 and 1.5 days). Got my hair cut (or rather, just evened out) Have a hair stylist that I've trusted for years. She always make…
  • Way to go @R2021 AMAZING accomplishment!!! Someday I hope to be where you are at right now. Enjoy the spotlight and treat yourself to something nice. You deserve it!!! 🏅🏆
  • Hi @yurisen Good to see you back on here. Well i made it 8 days before I gave in. So now I'm back to 1 day, 20 hours and counting, and not giving up 💪 My latest relapse didn't feel as traumatic and disappointing as it usually does. I don't know if …
  • Hello Trich Family! It's been a while since I was able to post when I'm in a GOOD place for a change! 5 days and 22 hours, so almost 6 days! Kinda worries me though 😬 When is the next 'shoe' gonna drop? When am I gonna fall off my wagon?? How can…
  • I'm starting over too @kitty142 ! Twenty two hours now and counting... Last night I reached for my hair, was able to stop myself TWICE by grabbing a fidget toy. But then as the evening went on, my willpower and self awareness waned and I was back…
  • Please don't get discouraged @CharB Sometimes the alerts work and sometimes they don't for some reason 🤷 There have been many times in the past that I thought it was unusual that no one has been posting for so long, but when I actually log on to t…
  • You. Are. Amazing. @claudia.grace !! One hundred days?!?! Are u kidding me!? You should be soooo proud of yourself! You seem to be in a good place right now so keep it going!! I've not been doing so good myself. Just blew a 3 day pull-free streak…
  • Best of luck to you @Christie on your journey. Hate to admit it, but my recent Pull Free journey was very short lived 😕 But I've cleaned up the giant pile of hair I created tonight, restarted my counter and am currently on a sixteen MINUTE pull fre…
  • Hello Fellow Pullers. I wanted to write an update on my progress (or rather, lack there of) and I couldn't decide which discussion thread to add to! I didn't want to be a big 'downer' on those celebrating their own recent Pull Free Successes. I am s…
  • You Rock @Gir !!!! Keep showin' us how it's done! Every day is a battle and every day you come up with a win. You should be very proud 🤩
  • Congratulations @R2021 on your month+ pull free streak! Keep going and don't give up! Some day I hope to be where you are. But right now, I can only manage a few days at a time, usually around 3 or 4. Just messed up a 5 day streak tonight when I d…
  • Congrats to you @Joy! Been following your Bedtime Reports for a while now. I know what you mean about finishing an organizing project. I'm a bit of a ClutterBug/hoarder myself and it's difficult for me to find the energy to tackle big projects like …
  • Hey All, Been 2 weeks since I posted last. I've had some short successful stretches since then (2 days, 3 and one 4!) but most of my pull-free stints this time have been 24 hours or LESS 😞. I read in a different thread how Yuri describes her pull…
  • Good to hear you are seeing healing in your legs @Anna 👍 Our bodies are truly amazing aren't they? No matter how much we use and abuse them, they still hang in there with us! Don't be too hard on yourself for not journaling every day. I would love …
  • Way to go @claudia.grace ! We are so proud of you kid 😍
  • Sending tons of hugs and support your way Yuri!! I messed up today again too. No excuses, but just like you said, easier to have a quick pull session than to struggle to try to fight it. I believe I got it out of my system (for now) and I'm ready t…
  • As long as we're confessing here Yuri, I just had a relapse myself last night, after 9 days being pull-free. So disappointed in myself 😞 It always starts so innocent-like. That first hair comes out so easy, and I always rationalize it that it didn't…
  • I know exactly what you mean @Anna about your friends and/or family saying something that isn't meant to be hurtful, but it is. They seem to only recognize the negative and can't see the progress we've made so far. Just know that you can share bo…
  • Hello there & welcome @anch0r33 !! I've just been catching up with all the new posts and new members. I just had to comment on something @Michelle Harper wrote earlier in this thread..... "Relapse doesn't start with the first hair pulle…
  • Good luck on your new journey @Anna !! I admire your determination. Give your Trich some hell today Girl!!😉👍💪
  • I must be following your lead @claudia.grace I made it 4 days before I had to start over. Right back on the horse though!! Keep going @yurisen! We are so proud of you!!
  • Way to go @claudia.grace!! I know what you mean about that one day mark. It's much easier to 'cheat' when your counter is under 24hrs. I just hit Day 2 (again) and I'm hoping to stay on track this time. Time to get the Fidgets out and make myself st…
