I was just wondering... How do YOU guys resist the urge to squeeze a pimble, scratch/poke a whitehead or generally pick at your face? I'm having a real hard time here, and I must admit I go look at myself in the mirror at least once an hour and usually I see something that bothers me, I do something about it, only making it 10 times worse... And I hate myself every time I do it! My self control apparently ain't good enough. So how do you encourage yourself not to do it?

I suggest you take a visit to the "Pickers" thread, theres a website about the effects of picking and yes it does work!

Wow you're right. That "book" really did help. I'll never pick at my skin again.

"What I find helpful is taking a sympathetic tone with myself like, "You don't need to beat yourself up like this." Or "you're so special and I hate to see you tear yourself apart."

That almost made me burst a tear :cry:
