I'm done with deodorant/anti-perspirant. I haven't worn it in about 3 or 4 weeks. I decided one day that I didn't think I really stunk much and I don't sweat very much. And, I always am more wet when I use anti-perspirant than when I don't. And I'm sick of getting white smudges on my dark shirts when I put them on. So, I decided to go off it and gave Jared strict instructions to inform me if I needed to rethink my strategy. So far, so good. Jared says I don't stink. And I haven't gotten that uncomfortable armpit wetness as often. And my clothes are going to last longer. And, all of those theories about anti-perspirant giving you cancer - I don't have to worry about it! On average, I would say I'm about 8.7% happier each day with no deodorant/anti-perspirant in my life. Obviously the absence of deodorant is not for everyone, but I've had no ill effects from not using it, so I'm just going to soldier on - deodorant/anti-perspirant free!
