I am 17 male and have been picking KP on my arms and chest for as long as I've had it (since around 12?) I also have trouble with picking blackheads on my back/shoulders which usually become irritated and turn into big painful pimples (either that or they're popping up out of nowhere).
I think my picking started when I was little. When I got in trouble my parents made me stand in a corner and I'd pick paint off the wall, it was a stress reliever and as I got older I'd pick any scabs I got and would take months to fully heal.
I'm making this for log/journal thing for myself to post my progress, and hopefully quit picking for good, I feel that if this is online for other people to see it'll be easier for me stop. Whenever I tell myself I'll stop picking I just can't, I haven't gone a single day without picking something, as of right now I have around 80 red marks on my chest, arms and back.
So here starts my quest to stop picking, I'll be posting daily on my progress.
