🫤 Helped a little

Really has to be someone you trust, it will come with a lot of RSD, but it helps if you're with someone often.

❌ Did not help

My friends and family have always tried to get me to stop. Whether they told me gently or harshly, the problem is that you stop for a moment, but as soon as that person is gone, you bite. Not a reliable strategy, but thanks mom, you tried.
