I have managed to go a whole day with out any obsessive picking at my skin. I will be honest, I very gently popped a few white heads on my face just because they were so noticeable. They are ones that will look better tomorrow from being popped. I tried avoiding looking in mirrors. Mirrors seem to trigger this compulsion. I've been able to quick picking in the past, but no more than a few days I'd say. I'll be very happy if I can get to a week without any picking "attacks."
