So close yet so far!!

I have picked for years, maybe since I was about 12 so we are talking nearly 15 years here, I am covered in scars and scar tissue, mainly on my jaw line, neck, chest, shoulders, arms and back. The scar tissue is the problem. I am so close to not picking at all, I go through phases with it, it is worse when I am anxious and I also have depression. I would say at the moment there are maybe a dozen sections of my skin (mainly the shoulders) which have raised scar tissue and I can't seem to stop picking at it because it is raised, I've stopped picking where the skin is flat but the raised parts are my downfall and I know I am making them worse. I am proud of how far I have come in terms of how little I pick now but PLEASEEEE does someone have any idea how I can stop picking the scar tissue so it can heal!!?? = )
