Lol, this post is hilarious. Do you guys just text each other "OMG I am about to pick!!!" ....."Don't do it man, don't do it"
haha....no, not at all. I just think about this thread when I go in for the kill.
but yes, it is kind of hilarious. but, for me, it's a problem and even though I can usually laugh at myself, there have been times when I have been really depressed after a session of picking my own skin. I'm just looking for support.
oh another thread! i'll join this one two, since i know we've had a few chats on here recently.
how long is this one? 30 consecutive days?
Yeah! I made a new one to encourage other people to help me out haha
30 consecutive days is the first hurdle-- lifetime is the ultimate goal!
haha! do you know what i've thought about doing, i know it sounds like swapping a bad habbit for another one (and in many ways it is) but.. I was thinking, smoking would help me to relax.. now before anyone jumps down my throat i am talking about those vapour devices and smoking flavoured liquid that has NO nicotine in it.
the reason i think this could help me is because 1) it would give my hands something to do when i feel like i may want to pick 2) it uses deep breathing, thus relaxing you
another thing, i've recently managed to grow my finger nails! and my mum noticed and said she hadnt seen me with normal looking finger nails since i was about 8 years old!
anyway, i'm going to try to not pick, but it just seems the temptation is over whelming. I get such a kick out of getting the crap out the pore. but i know i need to leave the skin.
@lewis, i never touch my face during the day if im out etc, the only time is once i have thoroughly washed them.
have you read that stop picking on me guide that floats about the net
Oh good lord, don't start smoking just to get away from picking!
Do something not bad for you like exercising or making origami cranes.
I totally understand getting the stuff out of the pore. Otherwise, where the heck is it going to go? In my mind, I might as well just get it out now because sooner or later it's coming out anyway!
I picked at one small one last night, but treated my face nicely otherwise.
