You add equal parts distilled water to half the solution to 40% and so on.

Hey guys! Sorry to hear so many of you are struggling just like me. My boyfriend knows about my picking problem. I finally admitted it to him after I picked at my face and felt too ashamed to see him. He's great, though, and loves me even though I sometimes tear apart my face.

 

Anyway, today is day 3 of not picking! My face is healing well from my last picking session and some of the scabs are flaking off. I'm trying to keep them on there as long as possible, though, to avoid scars.


In Topic: How Bad Is My Acne?

I'd say it's moderate. It doesn't look bad or distracting to me at all. I think lots of young guys have acne like this. That doesn't make it any more enjoyable, though. What have you done to treat it?

I had this when I was on accutane. I scratched my face at night and I guess my skin was just so sensitive it left marks like that. Just leave them alone and they should heal.

I've been reading the same book.!  smile.png  I too have this issue with anxiety and picking.  it's awful.  sometime I cant sleep at night knowing what I just did to my face.

 

I love the contract!  I will also sign it and tape it in my bathroom.

 

thanks !  we can do this!!!!

 

hugs

 

It's a great book! This article is also really great and gives a lot of wonderful ideas: http://www.trich.org...Strategies.html

 

I can totally relate to not being able to sleep because of picking at my face. I actually sometimes get panic attacks because of the damage I've done. What actually prompted me to get the book and start this log was a horrible picking session which left scabs all over my face :( I had a panicky feeling in my chest for two days after doing that. I don't want that to happen again and I don't want anymore scars so I'm determined to not pick this time! Feel free to post your your picking journey on here as well if you'd like. I think it's helpful.
