Wow, it’s hard you guys. I’ve been using cognitive behavioral techniques from the skin picking pages to stop biting my nails and while I have been largely successful in letting my nails grow, it’s been really tough. I have also been far from perfect at it. I’ll “clean” my nails now, which is tantamount to biting them but not really all the way. Ok, that’s gross.
Anyway, skin picking, which is the same as nail biting in almost every way, is a big deal for people with acne, and I’d love to help people stop doing it. What I’m noticing, however, is that you’ve got to have a lot of motivation to change because it’s a tough habit to break.
I’ll keep truckin’ along and posting my experience in my thread on the picking board along with pics if you’d like to follow along. I could use support!
