A lot of people are just like you ctbo. When I started 'confessing' to other people about my skin picking problem, almost all of them said that they picked at their skin, too: almost everybody's picked at a scab before... and look at certain kinds of monkeys that spend a big part of their day picking over other monkeys' bodies, or think of how most people just love popping bubble wrap or breaking through frozen-over puddles... What's wrong with you and me and lots of other people is a matter of degree--taking things to an extreme--, and of impulse-control. Some people seem to be able to tell themselves to just stop it; I for one have never been able to do that very well. The only things that work for me are being so busy I don't have time to stand in front of the mirror (which is rare), or making sure there's always people around (I never pick at my face in public), or having clear skin (when I'm lucky).

I have the same problem. My parents (and myself) ask me what's wrong with me almost everyday. I'm getting a lot better though. It really is satisfying. It's almost like you're defeating the zit. But stick with it though. WILL POWER!!!!
