Day 3 No Picking

Just an update - I've gone 3 whole days without picking. It's possible! My scabs have all dried up and healed thanks to Calamine lotion and keeping band aids on my fingers so I don't scratch off scabs. Hopefully this is a little light for you guys! Success is a daily thing. Best of luck to all trying to stop. I'd love to talk so we can help each other.

Wow! Just wanted to say great job! It is so difficult but we just have to remember to take it one day at a time. If you have any more tips to share that would be amazing. I just went four days but then relapsed so I am going to start over. I'm trying to go one week but it seems impossible!

Thank you! It has been quite an accomplishment for me, and I hope my small successes can help inspire other people too. Maybe don't say "I won't pick for a week."Try tackling it daily. The ultimate goal is to be aware of your own picking - when do you do it? Put band aides on your fingers then. Before you know it, the single days add up to a week. I wish you the best of luck and would be more than willing to share any advice with you.
