Hi Everyone! I've been hopelessly addicted to picking since I can remember... and I'm now 20 and tired of wasting my youth destroying my skin and my self confidence. The two areas that are the worst for me are my back and face. I can't wear certain clothes, and some mornings I wish I didn't have to face the day. Well... you have all heard this before. I've decided to start, like a few other people around here, to not pick for the entire month of February. I'm nervous and I'm doubting that I can do it. But I want this so badly. I'm writing this in order to hold myself accountable. If anyone else is interested in trying this with me... maybe we could hold each other accountable? No one in my life knows about my problem... and I think I need support. But either way, let the challenge begin! Any tips? I'll try to file down my nails, but somehow that never seems to stop me... P.S. Has anyone seen Black Swan... where she scratches herself? Though I pick... not necessarily scratch... I really identified with it!
