Hi everyone. Another user, Raeina , and I had an idea to try and do a group challenge of abstinence from picking, and noting down what happens (feelings/temptations etc). We thought we would try and go 5 days without picking and see the results. Does anyone else want to join?
About me: I have been picking for a few years now, mainly at my face and at ingrown hairs. In the past my skin was pretty much perfect except for problems I'd caused myself by picking. For some reason this year I've had acne for the first time, it seems to be getting better, but it's making it extra hard not to pick. I have had periods in the past where I've managed not to pick - the longest was 3 weeks in February - and now I want to try and abstain again. Last week I did 4 days then failed again. But I'm ready to try again! Who's with me? Rose
