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.

I agree with you on this. Making a commitment is easy but maintaining it is a little tough. You need to do a lot of hard work for doing so. I myself make many commitments but am unable to maintain it.

WOW! I'm not even sure what to say after reading through some of my old posts....I'm so shocked! I have made so much progress through that 100 days or so of posting and the time extended beyond that! I only hope that everyone knows there is still hope! My life-coach taught me a lot through this process and for anyone reading who needs help...please visit her website. She is amazing and has gone through this herself so she knows first hand what it is like to struggle with this addiction! Stay strong everyone! :)) http://www.bfrbcoaching.com

I don't want to intrude and seem like a copy cat everyone but i guess at the same time i really do.i really like what ppl are doing with the commitment and i am going to try hard to make a 30 day commitment to post daily so i don't feel so alone. I hope you guys don't mind. My day 1 Will start tomorrow but as for today. Sure coulda been better .I can do better if i try maybe. We Will see.The one thing i really want to try is staying away from mirrors and i got that idea from "toomuchpressure" but i don't know what to do about washing my face at night and putting on my make up in the morning. Maybe i can put a timer in there and get my family to have my back and make sure i hurry and get the heck outta there. Then put towels on them thru out the day and tape up my visor mirror in the car. Also. I really don't know how to keep my hands busy. I feel withdrawl just thinking about it. I have tried fake nails be4 and was amazed at how she said they helped her because they have me too. You would think not but they did. I may try that again. Plz keep me in your thoughts and those that pray, your prayers. Thank you. *reece kttttk6@gmail.com. Plz someone email me

This is wonderful you want to make a commitment @ktttk6! You can do this! Yes staying away from mirrors, fake nails. To keep your hands busy you should play with something...I use a tangle toy. Keeps my hands busy so I'm not touching my body! You are in my prayers! Carly

Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for sure! I too will be making the committment and posting my progress. My big problem at this point (as someone else has mentioned) is that the skin that I have peeled off and is red, heals with a thin, clear, hard scab and because it's bumpy and hard to cover, I peel it off....again. I think I'm starting to get it now! That's not going to work!!! Hopefully if I leave it alone for long enough, it will just flake off! I'm starting to hate my self for this problem and spending so much time to try and cover it up just to run out to the supermarket makes me crazy! I so feel for everyone with this problem!!! We will be better!!! Prayers, hugs, kisses!

DAY 1. It was so so hard but i made it better than normal. The hardest past was not looking in the mirror and keeping my hands off my face. Without looking at myself today i felt really awkward as if i had no identity without seeing myself so that's going to be a journey to learn to accept myself aside from my image, no matter what it may be like. I know i don't know anyone in here but i still choose to say thank you to my new friends in this forum because its very good to me to know that i am not alone. Thank you all and today is ALMOST over with little picks and no openings of wounds. I wish all of you luck and strength. Good night everyone.

Yoga and Ayurveda courses, the majority of which can be without a doubt involving excellent excellent, although by simply the incredibly nature that they tend to be uni-directional. Those who go through may take together the Pilates teacher’s diploma or possibly a level with Ayurveda and this can lead to a job for a lifetime. http://www.yatan-ayur.com.au/online-yatan-yoga-course
