I know some people leave the lips without moisturizer, and some with it. Regardless of whether you used moisturizer or not, I'm wondering how many months you made it to before you gave up. I think I remember some people saying they tried it for a year or so and did not see much progress. I'm trying the leave it alone method, so I'm curious. If there is really someone out there who has done this for a year without results I'd like to know.
