Hello. My name's James and I'm 20.
I gave up for 5 weeks in January this year. Unfortunately I ran into an excessively stressful time and caved in. I also had a lot of quit zits which did not help at all. I feel I've only just finished puberty and I've been pretty much zit free for 2~ years, after suffering from very bad pimples for 5~ years.
I've read that these quit zits can last for up to 18 months, and with Uni on the horizon in September, I really do not want to risk dealing with them again for that long. It's not a pleasant thought at all.
I was wondering if any of you had first hand experience with them, any tips on what to do, how to treat them, how to NOT get them (lol) etc.
I know the inevitable effects of smoking far outweigh 'a few pimples', but I just can't get past the idea of possibly reliving my pimply years again!
