Phase 1

So my first official week in my plan is going well. I have not attempted to pick or squeeze any bumps without a head. Its annoying because i just got 3 new ones -_- One is right in between my eyebrows. I'm kind of excited for it to get a head and I'm hopping it forms before bed so i can pop it... This is not what I should be thinking but it is what has been going through my head all day long. I'm going camping this weekend and i really don't need these new inflamed bumps. It is so frustrating. I

Step Program Idea

I'm having great difficulties in not popping/picking at my whiteheads. I have been successful in not picking/popping larger pimples. This whole not picking thing is not going as planned and is much harder than I first anticipated. I guess because I have been doing it for so long it'll take a lot longer to ween off, so quiting cold turkey was not the best idea. I'd compare it to a long time smoker trying to quit smoking in a day and never doing it again. It seems close to impossible. I'm going to

I'm not a complete fail face

I think I've been looking at my failure of yesterday all the wrong way & I want to shed some positive light on it. I've had 4 giant pimples on my cheeks (3 on left 1 on right) for over a week now & I have not squeezed or touched any of them and they are slightly fading and going away. So despite me going ape shit on my many various whiteheads & blackheads (which were popped with very little pressure in a sanitary way and disinfected after) I've been very good about my other forms of

End Day Two FAIL

I failed today. I broke down and started aimless picking at the flakes on my face which led to me taking it further and popping a few whiteheads.... This means I am back to square one and have to start my 5 day challenge over again. BIG LE SIGH. I'll do a longer update tomorrow and I feel bad for not putting a lot of time into this one but I really want to get back to bed. <3

End Day One

So, I have just successfully washed my face looked at myself in the mirror and not picked anything. This is very huge. I always pick after i remove my makeup and before washing my face. My trick was to no look at myself too long in the mirror & to not look super close. Avoiding mirrors for long period of time is going to be crucial to me not picking. One day down, 4 to go

Day 1 Checkup

I'm not even halfway through my first day and I've already tried to pick off a crusty dead skin with a scab in the middle. Luckily I didn't go through with or I'd be back to square one. This is going to be difficult but I know it is worth it. I have little scabs all over my face from last nights extreme picking relapse, but i only have 1 big active underground zit on my left cheek, 3 big fading ones 2 on my left and 1 on my right and then a couple small pimples along my jawline. I also have a fe

Intro

Hi guys, I've decided to create this blog in order to motivate myself (& hopefully others) to stop picking! I've recently within the last month admitted to myself that I have a problem. I pick at my skin, specifically my acne. I've done it since I can remember. It sprouts from some idea in my head that if I somehow pop the zit and drain it, the pimple will go away faster. This is obviously not the case & I'm left with scabs & red marks. I'm hurting my skin & most likely causing n
