Thanks for the support and good luck with your goals; so far I've been doing great no picking or face touching for two days. I also pick hair follicles on my arms and haven't done that either which is nice, at this point the most difficult part has been not biting and picking at my lips. Where I live it's very dry and cold at this time of year so my lips become quite chapped but I've been avoiding that as well.

I too resolve today, Thursday January 2nd, that I too will stop picking my skin. This habit has been with me for over 15 years but I will put an end to it today. I want to start respecting my skin and not using picking as my method of anxiety relief anymore. It never works and just leaves me with feelings of shame and disgust. 2014 is our year to be free of this compulsion!

New to site, but wondering how you are all doing with your New Year's resolutions? Hope you are managing to pick less, if not stopped.

Hey there, i'm new to the site. I made this same resolution but failed after about 1 week. Thank you for re-motivating me :) I am going to make another attempt as of today (Wed 29th Jan, 2014) to stop destroying my beautiful skin. Thanks again and good luck everyone. Much love, Kristy.

Hi all, how are you going with your pledges? I hope well. I joined this site today because I am having trouble with a promise I made to myself that I would make a plan and get rid of my face picking habit. I did ok initially, but soon stopped recording, paying attention to, or trying to stop myself picking once I got really down. I realised that what I need is support and accountability, and I believe that will really help. So for any of you who are at the same place as me and would like someone to be accountable to (and visa versa) I would love to start that discussion.

I've tried the whole "resolution" thing, but honestly, it hurts me more than anything. I find that if I do end up "messing up" that I take it as a failure, which is the wrong way to look at it. Instead, it's better to see it as a bump in the road to awesome-ness :P, and keep moving on from there. Just hoping no one stresses out big time if you do pick on your journey to healing. Change never comes without challenge.

Sorry for not responding in a while my fiance took a job where he's out of town for a few weeks at a time and it's taken some schedule adjusting. As far as picking I've been doing very well I haven't touched my face since just before new years and only occasionally find myself scratching at skin on my back and arms. I'm working on that too but my face was my main concern when I made this resolution. I wouldn't want anyone to beat themselves up if they made a mistake here and there; the main point of this resolution is to start paying closer attention to your habits in hope that you stop yourself before it's too late. We're not all going to be at the same place when it comes to healing this disorder but for me I was ready to commit to stopping all together. For others it's important to first get a handle on the stressers that cause you to pick in the first place as well as avoiding situations where you're likely to break down. Also if you break this resolution just remember that each month, any week, everyday could be the first day towards a new goal.
