I picked again today. not as bad as yesterday. But i think the best thing for me is to set small time intervals of no picking. Like tonight after i showered i only touched my skin for like a half second and then proceeded to not pick. So I went well tonight. My goals tomorrow are to not pick before school, before dance, or after dance. And the ultimate goal for this week is to not pick all the way to prom on saturday night. wish me luck. fighting fighting fighting
went better than yesterday. thats all i can try to do. full head of steam straight ahead to success. Also i am training myself to not examine my face with my hands by raising them above my head everytime i do. i will let you know how it works.
so today failed. I picked my forehead fairly decently and picked a couple elsewhere. i don't know why i did. i felt the urge and left and just promised to pick one but i ended up picking a lot more than one. Still got to keep fighting. but. my nails look amazing!!! and cant wait to show them off
Picked real bad today. I was stupid with my girlfriend and got upset at myself. But I havn't lost the will to get better, and I have a five day challenge to not pick one single bit so I look good for prom. Then I will have another 14 day challenge for my next prom. I have a lot to live for so my goals will be small at first and then grow in increments, just as my life.
i ended the day strongly, doing everything i needed to get done. however i picked midday. I found a quote that i keep repeating and it seems to be working. "You'll never regret doing the right thing" aka don't pick and you won't feel bad. Its worked for six-ish hours, i will see where it leads
So here's the deal. Had an amazing time with my girlfriend and then I go home and get nothing done and I pick my entire body to bits.. . . Ughh. But! I did the regimen morning and night so I am getting better also tonight, when I got to my gmas house, I have not picked. I'm on a roll lol
hey everybody. So today went fantastic but I picked five zits. I didnt shower either which is probably why i picked. Atleast i understand what i have to do. Only room for improvement, can't wait for tomorrow
Sooo today went. . . fantastic! did not pick again! I had an urge tonight, and i had my fingers around a zit. However i did not press or pinch it. I might need to begin to work out again to remove all of the urges but i am definitely on the right track On to tomorrow and btw my acne, or lack there of is awesome. I only have twenty or so active zits on my entire body!! the rest are marks from the past, but those will go away with time. .. so yea. total goodness happening here
OKay. .. so technically it is day six, however i am simply writing when i got to bed. . . so after the immense amount of homework that i had i am now going to sleep. And i did not pick a single zit today so yeaaa pretty awesome.. Anyways the whole work on my teeth thing is working really well, speaking of which i need to put in my retainers. ALrighty, goodnight acne.org. till tonight lol
Whatsup? I only picked one zit today!!! WAHoo! It twas very awesome My face is looking sooooooooo much better. Thank you Dan!! I have been brushing and flossing my teeth and using mouthwash which has been my competing response to picking. It has worked for me. Maybe it will work for you. So basically it was a great day I hop that everyone can achieve their goals. MIne is simply to get better and better and better and better lol. Goodnight Acne.org p.s. its amazing how much time you have when you don't pick. its fantastic
Sooo I forgot to write yesterday. Oh well, I will be okay. Today I picked tenish zits which is much better than yesterday. So I am improving. I found that when I am angry or frustrated I tend to pick and I have to keep my hands busy. So I am paying more attention to my teeth. Wish me luck. be back tomorrow
Picked the hell out of my face. However I read an article from a doctor from Harvard and I helped to identify some factors: 1- I have bottled up anger that I let out through my own picking and self hatred. I plan to fix it by working out and perhaps boxing. 2- I hate being called very good at anything, I don't like boasting yet my parents incessantly tell me I am brilliant. Perhaps I can talk with them about it. My goal is to write every day. wish me luck
