Trust me, this is also a health hazard as well as a mental illness syptom.
I have a friend that does this. Because of that I know what is really going on. And yes it actually can get intense as seen on the movie "Painful Secrets", so I don't see how this will help any especially if no one takes them up on the offer. Plus what if this way started where we live. (At least I in the U.S. .... sorry if that seem selfish but I don't know where everyone that looks at this is from.)
