Those who've successfully stopped... how did you do it?
Posted May 10th, 2010 by Solarrain4
My bad spot for picking is my arms, which is not easy to avoid at any part of the day. I've been trying to stop picking for three years now, and the longest I've managed to pull off has been two weeks. All it does is interfere with my everyday life. I've tried so many things - twiddling my thumbs, taking notes in class even if I had them already, writing things down, etc. I've even asked my teachers to stop me from picking if they catch me - all have agreed to, but so far, only three have actually done so, and the ones that have not, I've been trying to remind. So nothing's worked for me so far, and now I'm seeking advice. Those of you who have successfully stopped, how did you do it? I know I need to stop... it's actually stopping that's proving to be so frustrating.
