I Will Stop Picking, And I Will Post My Progress Here Every Day

Recommended Posts

2012-07-12: I hereby pledge to stop picking at my face, back, and neck. In the past 3 months, my acne has improved a lot due to oral doxycycline. However, as fresh new pimples become more rare, the old scabs become more noticeable. I need to stop reopening these wounds, I need to let them heal.

I have tried to swear off picking before, but this time is different, because I am going to be accountable to all of you. I am going to post once each day reporting my success or failure.

If I stop replying, then you should yell at me in this thread or via personal message. I must not slip back into my old habits. Not this time.

Wish me luck.

It has been a little more than one day, I am doing okay so far. I picked one spot absentmindedly, but stopped when I caught myself.

The longest I have ever gone without picking in the past is 3 or 4 days. Also, usually I totally give up after failing. My vow this time is to stick with it.
