made it through the night!

I wanted to pick a few times, but remembered my post on here vowing to make it 24 hours. The only way I can do it is to check in a lot. One thing I thought I'd share, that has really helped me, is saying a prayer (or if you don't pray just setting an intention) to not pick right before you go into the bathroom. Its a reminder of my goal to stop and I go into the bathroom more focused and get out quicker. Just thought Id pass that along.

Congrats!! I had the same issue if I was in the bathroom too long or stood too close to the mirror I would have a tendency to pick. Now I get out quicker and force myself to stand two feet from the mirror and it really does help. Good luck! ~Anne
