I know exactly how you feel. I too was very popular, and I turn into a recluse everytime I break out. My mother thinks I'm crazy for doing all this stuff but she doesn't understand. I am also 18, and i've even done cleansing during college and managed to keep a good diet. The fastest road to success would to follow a healthy Diet (no phony processed foods, just whole foods), Liver Flushes followed by bowel management (it is IMPERATIVE to do this or else you could be doing even more damage by reabsorbing toxins from excess stones. You should REALLY do a colonic because nothing else compares), kill, starve, and rebalance candida, eat your biggest meal at LUNCH, and try to get to bed by at least 11. I know you are probably thinking this way too much, but just try to take baby steps and you WILL SUCCEED. It only takes time, but it is SOOO worth it. Shelley has also helped me A LOT ( //www.curezone.org/forums/m.asp?f=424&i=2135 ). She no longer takes questions on CureZone, but she does at her Yahoo! Group called "VitalHealth". So join that. Don't forget post questions for Andreas and any other people/forums. Use all the resources you can to educate yourself! In my journey to cure Acne (which is finally coming to and end! yay!), I have gained so much knowledge about our bodies, food, health that I'm glad I had Acne (well... almost!). By the way where are you from. I'm from Chicago. I hope to hear from you soon! AND YOU WILL WIN THE BATTLE!
