hair biting/plucking

i am so surprised to see such a site like this.finaly i can relate to people in the same situation as me, and we can help each other.i have this issue of biting out my hairs from my hand and wrist area.its going on for years, and it needs to stop. it is already getting embarrassing since the damage i did is now visible.is there anyone out there with this habbit?can anyone help?

When did it start, do you remember? When do you do it? When your bored, anxious, angry? Getting to the root of things may help some in the way of self awareness. We may not do the exact same behaviors, but we all suffer the same type of affliction and the same consequences, so we do understand you. I reciently found this site myself. I am still coming to terms that I have a problem. I am not the most severe case, but I still have uncontrolable urges. Not being in control of your own behavior is a problem, period. I hope we can figure our issues out.
