Disaster day.



I just left the bathroom after destroying my skin for nearly an hour. Why I do this, I don't know. It has become a huge problem, not only the damage done to my skin, but also the anxiety involved. I have been picking/popping for the past 4 years. I have some scarring that will probably never go away (fortunately not on face). I pick the smallest imperfections I can see only making them worse. I have tried to quit this habit several times with no success. I'm hoping this blog will help keep me on track and I hope others will provide encouragement. I also hope there are others out there who have the same problem and want to attempt to quit by posting daily progress here. I feel it will be easiest to quit with the support of others. I do not know if it is true or not, but I've heard it takes 21 days to form a habit, so I am going to try to post everyday for the next 21 days. Any advice or support will be greatly appreciated.

I'm with you, I pick my skin too! So many red marks :-( Good luck stopping!
Thank you! Would you like to try to stop picking as well by posting daily progress here?
