I keep reading about everyone who is making these commitments and you know, I really want to make one too! I feel like maybe if I post daily about how i'm doing, it will keep me motivated to keep doing better! I will start right now, but officially begin day 1 tomorrow of my week long commitment. If I can get through a week...I can get through longer! As of today, I have done alright...Only picked a few minor spots. I am home alone tonight making it harder, but I am going to do it! I have to promise to myself that there will be no more tonight! Wish me luck!! :)

I am really hopeful that writing this out and reading what others' experiences are in overcoming picking will be helpful to my experience. I have been picking for 10 plus years now....I am terrified that my hair has thinned where I pick around my scalp and that I may show bald spots from this obsession. I think the key to beating this disorder is being aware as well as kind to myself as I try to recover. I am hoping to learn more from others and maybe try to use this as a focusing tool as well.
