Unfortunately we've all been there, just try to pick yourself up and start again - there's no shame or disappointment in that. Let us know how you're getting on, it might take several or hundreds of attempts to get to 30 days so be patient with yourself. I'm still trying to get to 11 days after a year of trying. Here's a quote from Theodore Roosevelt maybe it'll make you feel better: " ... the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

hi I am planning to do the same from today on, i am sick of this habit. I have scabs on my lips because it's where I picked, but I will not attempt to hurt myself anymore.

oh man.. that sucks:( don't give up!! I know its so hard, but just don't stop trying. I am sorta kinda new to this (lol) and I can totally relate to how you feel. And people don't understand that, we aren't doing it because we just want to.. its because we cant stop! What kind of "tricks" have you learned? I am just now talking about this with my therapist, and he doesn't know a LOT about it.. all I got is a breathing exercise. Its not working that well:(
