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!
