Exchange phone or skype "ERP" sessions?

I've been a pretty severe nail-picker for a long time, have been in therapy a lot (and currently seeing a CBT), and have done some short exchange sessions with other pickers. Basically involves communicating info to the other person ("How strong are the urges to pick right now, on a 1-10 scale?") and that kind of thing. I've found it helfpful for my recovery. (I'm getting considerably better over time, but occasionally relapse, and need consistent "reminders" about the issue...) I don't have a lot of time for this, but would like to find someone who is interested in trying this out?

Hi, I'm a chronic and severe skin-picker and have similarly been seeing a therapist to help recognize and better understand my problem. I think it would be helpful - and even more helpful to exchange a group skype session if anyone else is interested.

In reply to by thefurtive_der…

I think that would be great, actually. This is day 1 without picking for me and I need all the support to stop picking that I can get. If any of you would like/need to talk, I'm here and my email is (:
