The Road To A Clear Face... Stopping My Picking

There hasn't been a day in the last 3 years in which I haven't felt the urge to pick or haven't touched my face. I now look at my face and realize what I have done to it: all the scars. It is frightening. Every day, I make a promise to myself that I won't pick but then never keep it. I have tried so many different techniques to stop, but they have never worked. There have been so many highs and lows that I don't even know what my highest peak was. Every day I think: how many pimples have I picked in the last 3 years? How many zits have I popped?. I have recently decided to try with all of my might and strength to stop picking and touching my face. I need to break my OCD. Most people say that once you stop picking for 30 days, your addiction is under control. With that said, I am going to try to stop picking for 30 WHOLE days. If I pick, I will start over. I need advice on what techniques people used when they stopped and how they felt when they did so.
