Soooo, I finally decided to truly go out and stop picking yesterday. I have been pick free but I every time I look in the mirror (to brush my teeth or otherwise) the urge to pick has grown increasingly bad. I understand that this is probably normal as this was my stress creator and reliever and a boredom habit. any suggestions on how to soothe the urges? I have also recently quit biting my nails which used to be my soother but not I'm determined to quit both so I'm looking for some good suggestion. I work out as much as I can to relieve it (no more than an hour a day) but it still is there. Help?

I quit smoking with the use of tooth picks.

I just chewed on them from when I woke up until I went to sleep.

Almost 3 months cigarette free, so they worked for me. Same idea for the nail biting, have your hands and mouth occupied with something to prevent you from picking, biting, smoking, etc.
