    Stupid Zits!

    I am a otherwise beautiful woman. My only downfall are these huge, ugly, gross zits all over my face! And I can't stop picking them! (Which only makes them bigger, uglier & even more gross!) I'm 37 years old, why do I have zits? :P

    F***Me and My Skin!

    Yeah, so I get a zit, and I go into this transe where I just have to pick it! I pick one, and then I have to do another, and then I start squeezing blackheads, until my face get's all red and scabbed. It's terrible!

    According to the CDC 5+ drinks in one night is too much. 15 drinks a week is heavy drinking. By that definition I have been an alcoholic for a very long time.
