I'm making a compilation of tricks and distractions used to temporarily avoid picking when the urge strikes, with medicinal backup of course. What little things have you discovered helps you when the going gets rough? A few of my examples: wearing gloves, covering mirrors, not wearing makeup and forcing myself to face the consequence of my actions, buying/using expensive skincare products, exercise (ps. does anyone avoid exercise for fear of sweat clogging pores and making something new to pick at??), napping (I dont pick when unconscious.. I hope). It is my sincere hope that something on this site will help.
