Hi, I just joined and I couldn't believe there were so many other people here that shared my problem.<br />

Trust me, if you don't stop now it will only get harder. I'm 21 and I've had the "disease" for over 10 years. It started with my eyelashes, to my hair, and now it's moved on to my eyebrows. It fluctuates often, meaning I'll stop for about a month until some of it grows back, and then I'll start pulling again for no apparent reason.<br />
<br />
The only advice I can think to give you is to wear gloves when you go to bed, if you're like me and are tempted to pull while laying awake in bed. You may also wear brow liner or eyeliner, like I do, to cover up the bald spots and avoid embarrassment in public. If you can resolve to, just go for a day without the liner, and keep doing this every time you lapse. During the day, do everything you possibly can to keep your hands busy and most importantly, AWAY from your face. <br />
<br />
Hope this helps.
