This is exactly how I feel. I start in search to remove unwanted black heads or tiny raised bumps. Then I create something that wasn't even there/you couldnt even see in the first place. I constantly go through phases where I do really good and then relapse. My skin will almost be completely clear and then I go and ruin it. I HAVE TO STOP!

1. Make a smooth-ish surface 2. Get out the "sick" (that's what I think is it gunk or whatever) 3. Anxiety 4. Feeling very negative and insecure 5. I do it absentmindedly, too. Like I won't realize I'm doing it until my fingers are bloody

It is such a good feeling to see just how much i can get out of one bump, i finally say "just one more" and ends up being 3 hours later. its been a daily struggle but if you have found a way to stop, please, i beg, lmk. :)

struggling a bit as well lately. Trying to stay out of the bathroom, but the husband was outside for awhile and I went on a picking spree. It was only about 10 minutes, but as you know, it can cause a lot of damage in those ten minutes. Keeping my face hydrated to avoid more problems
