It's so terrible. Once I start, I just cant stop. I can never just pick a little. When I do it's for hours. Then I can go a week for so without. Then, I break down again. It sucks. I really want to start using Retin-A for my acne and as an anti-aging regime...but with my skin picking...it will just tear my skin apart. But I am determined to stop this habit. They say 12 months for the urge to go away completely. I just want nice skin...I could prolly get really nice skin if i just STOPPED picking and went for facials. But when i see little black heads i look and then pick just a few...then go crazy in the mirror for hours. ugh. I cant think of anything that would be a replacement for skin picking. It's just such a stress relief and so much fun when i get all that microscopic junk out of my pores. Has anyone found any alternative behaviors that they do instead? I want to STOP for good! Day 1 begans 2morrow.
