2009 New Years Resolution

I have decided that starting yesterday, I will do everything in my power to keep myself from biting the insides of my mouth and picking my scalp and face. I've caught myself a few times, but so far I am feeling good about this. I've bitten the inside of my mouth since I grew teeth, and my face and scalp have been an issue since I was 11 years old (the last 10 years). It's time to stop. No excuses, no exceptions.

Goodluck to you. I have the same resolution. But then again, I've had the same resolution several years in a row now. I only hope you can do better than I've done! All the best =)

Thank you for your support! :) So far I've stopped myself at nibbling on my lip and found my hand wandering through my hair to my scalp a couple of times, but have not done anything that goes as far as breaking the rules. :) It's only been 4 days though. lol

I am very anxious today. Concentrating on a stress ball is doing wonders for me right now. It keeps my rouge hand occupied and I am concentrating enough on it to distract myself from biting. I'm getting those "ghost" itches now though, you know, when random parts of your body that you typically pick just start to itch? They crave the attention. lol
