Hey guys! I'm in need of real support. I've tried for so long to stop picking and squeezing my face but I can't break my habit. My face looks like it has permanent red marks where old acne used to be and I know it's because I pick it so much. I absolutely cannot stop. I have a few strong OCD habits, but this one affects my life the most. I'll spend 30 minutes at a time in front of my bathroom mirror picking at acne and squeezing pores. I feel like my face will never EVER be clear and pretty like everyone around me, and it's my own fault. When I saw this site and that other people struggle with the same thing, it made me feel a lot less alone. I'd love to hear what some people do to keep themselves from touching their faces. Any kind of input at all would mean a lot!
