new, and would love help!

i am 19 years old, and have always pulled out my hair. usually one strand at a time, and the hair has to feel a certain way for me to pick it out (not smooth like the rest) and i also pick my skin too. i have been peeling the skin on my lips for a very long time now as well. i have slowed down A LOT on the hair pulling but my lip peeling has increased. looking for help/support. thank you :) also i am so glad to see there are other people out there going though the same thing.

Hey, what do you think about doing this together? It's so much easier to do something when you have others supporting you... I am the same age as you, I don't pull my hair but I have been picking my skin all over my body for years. Let's say we both make a commitment to stop, we can support each other along the way!

I also am a lip picker. I pick at the lower lip and it bleeds all the time. I want to stop but not sure how to. I've been a lip picker for about 40 years. Feel free to contact me.
