Day 1 - I came home from work yesterday feeling lonely and depressed over the fact that I've fallen back into old skin picking habits. I skipped my painting class and spent the night moping around watching tv. On a whim I decided to post on this forum. Three posts later I started to feel something that I've been missing for a while - hope. Hope gives us something to strive for. I woke up this morning feeling unbelievably hopeful that I can regain control of my skin picking and my life. Today is the first day of my thirty day challenge to not pick and so far so good (granted it's only 10am but I'm feeling positive about today). Post down below if you want to start the 30 day challenge with me!! I've been though the "healing" process before (both physically an mentally) so hopefully I can give you guys some good tips an advice. First step today will be to take a picture of your face with no makeup on. This can be a very difficult step if you are at a low point with your skin picking. But at the end of this challenge it will be amazing to see how far you've come. Good luck!!!
