Nose and mouth are the most dangerous areas to pick

I read on this site that the nose and mouth are the most dangerous areas to pick because they can lead to infection, esp. In the brain because they are so close to the brain. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have struggled with those areas, as well as the soles of my feet. I've decided that the best thing to do to stop picking completely would be to focus on my feet again (because they are less dangerous) and eventually stop completely. I've tried many times to stop cold turkey, but I always end up doing it again in a day or less. So what I'm saying is my advice to others would be to do it less and less, and maybe eventually we'll stop.
