Do you mail your book and CD outside of the U.S.?

No, I’m sorry we don’t, but the book will soon be available as an e-book.  Check the order page for details.

Will I find these recorded messages anywhere else?

I write and record Doses of Comfort, customized for hair pullers, like myself and only offer them here and a few other websites.

Where can I get more information about trichotillomania?

I believe your best source for unbiased information is from the Trichotillomania Learning Center. In the mid-1990s, I attended one of their retreats and in recent years have been to several of their conferences. I encourage you to become a member of this wonderful organization.

Why did you create Doses of Comfort and Manage-Trich-Urges.com?

For some time I have felt it was my mission and purpose to help other people who pull hair. Upon completing my book, Urges, in late 2008, I realized that a calling in my life was to create a program for other hair pullers that would bring comfort and inspiration.

Is this program appropriate for teenagers?

Yes, absolutely. The content of my messages will always be appropriate for all ages, but I encourage parents to listen to the free message first to make sure you are comfortable with your child listening to this message.

How does the program interact with therapy, counseling or other treatment?

These messages are written and produced to give you comfort, hope and inspiration. This CD should not replace any cognitive-behavioral therapy, counseling, or other treatment options you are either currently engaged in, or are exploring. If you are seeking a counselor who can talk to you anywhere via Skype, contact Joan Kaylor.

Have you encountered anything that helps reduce the urges?

I haven’t found anything to be of help, but we are all different. One item that has caught my attention is positive reports about a supplement that can be found at most health food stores called N-acetylcysteine.

Is this a hypnosis program?

No, it’s not intended to hypnotize you. This program is intended to bring you to relaxation and deliver positive messages that will help you get through your day. You may choose to sit back, close your eyes and be lulled with my voice. Or you may choose to listen while engaged in other activities.

You’ve obviously shaved your head. Does that mean you’re cured?

No! I’m far from cured of hair pulling. I can’t let my head hair grow out but for about a day or two and I’m already digging away trying to find one of those pesky gray ones to pluck out. And a go-tee? Even though you see in some pictures that I’m sporting a go-tee, you’ll see the gotee isn’t long or thick. Every few months I’ll let my go-tee grow (mainly because my wife and daughters like it), but after about four or five days the trichotillimania urges are completely uncontrollable. Inevitably, I’ll be working at my computer when my left hand sneaks up to my chin, starts to stroke my go-tee, and then I pull one out. Then another, and another. When I do this, my self-esteem is wrecked for hours. I’ll rush to my bathroom to shave the go-tee and when I’m done shaving my heart is racing with anxiety. So I rarely let a go-tee grow. Oddly, I can sport a moustache, but I have no urges whatsoever to pull my moustache. Strange, isn’t it?
