Bodily changes after stopping subs

Postby MyPainIsYours » Fri Nov 02, 2012 1:40 pm

Hey guys just wanted to make a post about changes in the body after stopping subs. The main one i just want to talk about is my skin! Before drugs and while on them my skin was pretty much normal. I broke out once in awhile and had dry skin in the winter. After stopping subs my skin is completely different. My face is now oily and is always growing a new spawn to hatch. I wash it and literally an hour later it feels dirty again. My hands and feet are so dry. Lotion doesn't even help. I break out on my body, and badly too. I have had horrible cysts on weird places that seem to grow overnight. I don't know if this is normal. Or if anyone else has had such a dramatic change. I don't know what to do to help it either. I have tried washing with different soaps. Different lotions.. Nothing seems to actually help. It really makes me feel... ugly :puppy-dog:

Some of us female long time members used to talk about this all the time, plus there was this body odor you couldn't quite ever get rid of that stuck around for a long time. Just a smell, not a nice smell, but not a strong smell. Ugh! I sure don't miss those days, sorry you are going through this. Just know, IT ENDS!

I have been breaking out terribly too but figured it was bc I was pregnant. I broke out really bad when I was pregnant with my other son, too! It really sucks and I am at a loss as to what to do myself. I was thinking about ordering some proactiv....I usually only get one zit a month if that:(

Please take as much vit C as you can stand. Also multi vits...

remember that skin is an organ and it detoxes too.

I lost a lot of hair during the months after detox and turned gray....but then it switched back to a blonder color last year....go figure.

I know something that would work for you ladies but you have to be freaky......LOL :oops: !

OK, OK I'll stop and get my mind out of the gutter but since coming off subs my sexual appetite is roaring and the Mrs is out of town for two more weeks, and if I don't do something about it my twins will be dusting the floors by the time she comes back home, and we have a lot of carpet, ouch! Before, when I was using subs I would even forget about having sex. Now that is twisted for a man! Now I have to check to see if the wind is blowing too hard before venturing outside. That would be very embarrassing to explain!
Oh and the smell thing, that's not just a woman issue.

Hard labor? Naw the water in the shower finished me off! No touching needed. Crazy shit! I'm scared to tickle my twins, I might white wash the walls! Well I don't know how much of that would actually be considered "washing"? But the Mrs would be pissed off! :thumbup:
