What do you all do when you try to control your actions?

I am still having a lot of difficulty trying to control myself with the picking. I seriously pick everywhere. Unless its at my job. But I notice as soon as I wake up I start picking. When I'm in the shower I start to pick. Even after the shower. When I am driving I pick. When I am watching TV, on the internet, and before bed... My face looks hideous. I am so ashamed at what I did to myself. The other day after I got out of the shower I could not stop staring at myself in the mirror at all the damage I have done to myself. I used to have nice skin. I even have modeling pictures. I really wanted to cry. So I picked up my camera and took a picture of what I looked like now. I want my face to heal so bad. I have to go to a wedding in a few days and I am worried that I wont be able to control myself til then. I need some sort of self control. I want to be able to take a picture from a week from now to compare it to the picture I just taken recently to see if there is any healing.. This feels like the worst addiction ever.
