I Guess You Could Call Me An Addict.. 9 Years And Counting..
Posted 18 April 2012 - 07:12 PM
Although, I think 9 years is starting to get a little out of hand. I pick for at least a half an hour every night and it's really starting to show on my skin. I am already getting noticeable acne scars at my considerably young age. Once upon a time my acne was actually completely gone (thanks to accutane) but through my obsession with picking and touching my face it has come back.
Can someone please help me break this habit for good? Because I am really sick of dealing with it...

It's the most tempting when I've got a painful one that has a massive white head, just begging to be squeezed.
What I do to stop myself is I start this argument for myself:
Do I want what's best for the short-term or long-term?
Short-term: I'll purge the pimple in hopes it will disappear sooner with the potential of spreading bacteria or scarring
Long-term: Leaving the pimple be knowing that it will eventually heal, and minimize the risk of making the breakout worse or leaving a nasty scar
