    Woah dude before your acne treatment you looked just like Patrick Steward! Why would you possibly want to change?

    As long as you take care of yourself by dressing nicely, not being a fat shit and grooming yourself then you'll soon find that the key to being a "smooth talking pimp" is simply being confident.

    The sooner you understand that, the better.

    I found the the best way to cure acne is take multivitamins, get plenty of sleep, drink a lot of water, eat a healthy balanced diet, and using a non scented soap and moisturiser. I found that overwashing and drying my skin out actually made it worse.

    I'm happy for you man, I know the horrors of acne and the anxiety it can cause.

    you are still unattractive
    I can bet you're ten times more unattractive just based on that sentence, nobody likes somebody with a personality like that.

    Where are you from? I've lived in a few different states and three different cities, and I have never EVER seen anyone make fun of a grown man that had problems with acne. Even when I was in junior-high and early high school when I had some acne, nobody said a thing. Almost everyone gets it, and you probably would have grown out of it.

    If people were making fun of you because you have 'acne', why'd you want to socialize with them in the first place?

    More than likely it was your reaction was the part they found fun, as is the case with all bullying.

    I think my acne was a lot to do with stress and depression at the time. Once I realised that no one really cared that I had acne I learned to stop caring about it myself. After that I became a much happier person, gained a bunch of confidence and set my sights on the next thing to fuck with my emotions.

    The Ladies.

    I don't know if just relaxing and not worrying about it has worked for anyone else though.

    I hear all the time about how dangerous Accutane is, but my experience with it was actually decent. It cleared up my skin within a couple months. After that, I felt the exact opposite of depressed, I actually became slightly over-confident in my appearance I think. I definitely don't worry about my girlfriend finding a better looking guy, and whether it was related to the psychological effect of having clear skin or not, the average length of my relationships went from a couple months to a year pretty quickly.

    Took it Sophmore year of High School, now I'm a Junior in college... No more pimples. Totally worth it. I would seriously recommend it to anyone, but now it's associated with horrible side effects. It's sad.

    Man I should take accutane, but whatever since I'm covered in goddamn scars anyway

    It sucks because the scars look worse than the acne, there are some operations to get rid of them though

    OP didn't even have that bad acne should have seen my face in sixth grade (I'm sure there are many facepunchers who agree)

    Still nice that you got rid of it, acne sucks

    I actually took Acutane for more than a year and it did my Acne absolutely no good and made my health terrible for the entire year.

    I stopped it long ago and my health is still kind of ass, my acne is slowly going away over time though, the more I grow up the less bad it becomes, so I'm just giving it time.

    I took Accutane for almost two years. It was definitely not good times during those two years, but I can say and show you just how much it actually helped me.

    Here's an embarrassing picture of me back in 2006. At the time I was already on some silly cream stuff and what have you, the typical "cures" for acne that didn't require a prescription. I won't lie, they did certainly help a bit with the redness, but as you can see below my face still looked like a mine field.



    I don't have any pictures before I used even basic treatments, but I can assure you it was far worse.

    Now here below is a recent picture of me, six years after the above picture was taken. I have no acne at all and I'm perfectly healthy.



    In fact, I hold a class 1 medical certificate and I'm a pilot which to me proves that Accutane has had zero long term negative effects.

    My friend Tom said to me a month ago on a night out something that stuck with me since.
    "Danny you've changed since I met you"
    "In what way?"
    "You were a mess when I met you. Not because you were drunk. But because you were a mess. Physically and socially."
    "Thanks Tom"
    "No- I mean, you've changed.. now you're a smooth talking pimp"
    "..Thanks Tom?"
    "It's compliment. I think."
    Something tells me your friend Tom is even more of a "Nice Guy" if he thinks you're a pimp. Definitely confirmed if Tom is the guy in the bottom-right of the second picture in the OP.

    you are still unattractive
    I can bet you're ten times more unattractive just based on that sentence, nobody likes somebody with a personality like that.
    Because it's impossible for a person to be attractive and make unfriendly comments.

    Also, the way you're telling it in the OP makes you sound kinda douchy, while you don't sound like one in other cases.
    It was supposed to be ironic. It just didn't come across that way

    Edited:

    More than likely it was your reaction was the part they found fun, as is the case with all bullying.
    The only people that abused me were strangers in the street.

    I live in a town that Ricky Gervais described as "full of white trash" and "a shit hole".
    He met somebody that goes to my Uni and he LAUGHED at them. Instantly.

    First of all, your acne is nowhere as what I would consider "bad" according to your photo in the OP. I've seen people with worse cases than you in real life quite often

    Second, You could've easily get rid of them with safer medications that you apply directly onto your face rather than taking pills that could've potentially destroy you, if you consult to a proper dermatologist.

    And last, you're still a fool for gambling with a drug that could've severely destroy your body over minor cosmetics.

    First, a doctor told me I was bad based on a chart system. I was rated a 7/10. I know there is worst.

    Second, I had been on such medications for a year.

    And last, it goes beyond minor cosmetics when you feel like shit every second of the day and can end up with permanent scars.

    I managed to reduce my acne by 80% by switching to lactose-free milk and cutting out other milk-based products. People recommended stopping drinking milk, but then I realized that it must be something in the milk itself. Turns out Lactose was causing my acne.

    I just used some cream that ripped my skin apart (literally) and hurt like a son of a bitch, but only for the first two weeks or so. And it worked in matter of a few weeks. And even if a had sudden zit pop out, I just used that cream and it disappeared the same day.

    No side effects. I wouldn't want this cream on my dick though, oh my god that would be nasty when you think about it.

    I had nodulocystic acne throughout my highschool career...it was IMPOSSIBLE to think that a day would come when I didn't grow a new, completely obvious lump on my face. I went through a full treatment cycle of accutane, and it cured my condition in much the same way as you would hope for in a best case scenario. I only wish I had done it sooner, considering the psychological impact of school life with such an obvious imperfection.

    And now, some years later, (minus a few pock marks on my face) it's like I suffered that problem a lifetime ago. My confidence grew as I was able to look someone in the eye, knowing they would look back at mine, and not at all the pulsing orbs under my skin.

    Yeah you're right actually.

    Everybody has said something offensive like that before so I suppose with my view that'd make everybody unnattractive, maybe he's just had a bad day or maybe he's trying to shrink the OPs now enlarged ego.

    My bad.
