MAGNESIUM CURED ALL CRAVINGS!!! No more hair pulling

Hi, just wanted to share what has been 100% working for me! I have been compulsively hair pulling for 20 years, and hadnt found anything that stoped it. It had recently gotten especially bad.

Im taking a Magnesium (as oxide, aspartame, truant, citrate, alpha-ketoglutarate) with horsetail and silica supplement. Magnesium is 300mg, Horsetail is 43mg, and silica is 3g.
Im unclear if it matters what type of magnesium you take, this is just the type of magnesium I had ordered. I ordered a supplement with horsetail and silica, bc I had read that silica was in diatamecous earth, and people were recommending DE on Trich forums.

One night, I read on a Trich forum post (from years ago), that someone said magnesium worked for them. That night I ended up ordering food-grade diatamecous earth, habit aware, and a magnesium supplement. The magnesium supplement came first, so I took it first. I wasnt sure how much to take so I just took one pill in the morning--and right away the cravings stopped. It was that easy! I notice when I am up for ~12+ hours, the cravings/compulsion starts again. I just pop another supplement, and it is gone! I notice no other effects than this miraculous one! I have been taking it for two weeks now. The habit-aware came, and I havent even opened it up yet- Im going to return it. Ive found somethig that works. If you try it, and it works, please spread the word so that others will know! Im amazed this worked, and amazed there is so little information about it on-line. I never thought I could just stop like this.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll try it as my friend happens to have the bottle of magnesium with horsetail/silica.

I've just been taking 5000/1000 mcg biotin pills and also applying benadryl-equivalent itch cream to the spot on my head. Even though I'm on 64 straight days of success, I still put my hand on my head often strongly wanting take out hair. Mentally, I don't want to undo the progress, so it's been stopping me from pulling/scratching.
