Hi that sounds exactly like me. Im 22 and iv picked my lips since i was a kid. i am also addicted to vaseline for my poor lips, i se it about 20 times a day and panic if i cant find it. i also chew the inside or my cheek when my lips are too sore theres only such much of the year you can get away with saying their cracked from the cold its nice to see other people with the same issues

Thank goodness someone else picks their lips. I also bite the inside of my cheeks (though I haven't done it in a while. I am almost 29 and I've been picking since I was 12. Just a few years ago I made the connection of why i do it. My parents divorced when I was 12, though things were bad before that. anyway, I realized that my past had a lot to do with my present behavior. I'm in the same boat as u. I try to stop, but it's an almost unconscious behavior. I have to carry chapstick (more than one kind) with me at all times. I've been considering going to counceling, but I feel like the doctor's office that I go to would dismiss my issues. I guess I don't have any words of wisdom, just the reality that you are not alone, and there are probably deeper issues behind the picking
