To Pop or Not to Pop? No picking.

Recommended Posts


I just wanted to start a thread on no picking. I've tried for a couple years now and I feel that I am finally determined to do it after seeing all my scars. I only break out in big pimples on my forehead. That's the only spot I pick. I do occasionally get breakouts around my nose but not really. My big goal is 23 days. IDK why but if I make it that far I feel that I won't turn back! 
Right now, pretty bad breakout on forehead with a couple tiny red ones on my cheek. Picked like CRAZY today so today's day 0. 

I pick normally right before/after my shower. Instead of picking, I'll bring my laptop in and maybe listen to music instead of sit infront of the mirror and destroy my face. I've got this! 

Any tips? Let me know!

I have found the best way to stop picking is to try as best as you can to avoid mirrors at all times. When I'm in the bathroom I put the light on in the stairway but leave the bathroom one off. That way I can see what I am doing just about but can't see my skin very well to pick at it.
