How to Deal with Popping Pimples Addiction
Are you a pimple popping addict? If so, then that is bad. Addiction is never good in any sense of it. Popping pimple addiction means you have no control on your pimple popping and as we have seen in the previous hubs, that is not good. Pimple popping should be controlled and done using the proper techniques and done at the proper time. But then again, it is hard to blame ourselves. In our effort to look good and attractive, we want to get rid of all those unsightly pimples at once! However, there is where the saying "patience is a virtue" would act as our words of wisdom.
As already discussed before popping pimples is not bad. Controlled pimple popping can even bring you quick relief! This is especially true to young adolescents because that is the time when they are very conscious of their looks. Just imagine that you are going to have your first date with your longtime crush and suddenly a big pimple pops in the middle of your nose! Truly frustrating. And as such, many people disregard all advice and wisdom and just simply pops pimples whenever once takes surface. In time, this becomes a habit, becomes second nature and becomes an addiction.
Pimple Popping Addiction
When you hear of the word "addict", it normally brings with it a negative connotation. We normally picture drug addicts who plug in drugs into their blood stream. And with good reason too. Addicted to anything is never good for us. Addicted to drinking softdrinks or colas is not good as these will destroy our health in the long run. The same is true with popping pimples. Addicted to doing so would bring us much harm. Why?
There are a few good reasons. First and foremost, if you are addicted to doing so, controlling your urge to pop them would be very hard. Even with your knowledge that doing so improperly and at the incorrect timing, addiction to it would override all reasons and the desire to look attractive would impose itself.
Another reason is that being addicted to it means doing so habitually and thus we might do so in public without us being conscious of doing so. If that happens in public, it might bring us shame because many a times, when you pop a pimple with your bare hands (or fingers) the puss from those pimples will squirt out! If someone sees you doing this, it would destroy your image and self-respect.
