How to finally stop picking your skin…

I picked at my skin for 32 years. Anxiety fueled My picking. At times in my life when I had high anxiety I would pick at my face for eight hours straight in the mirror. I would enter a trance like state where I would forget where I was. The trance would break when my hands were too tired to pick and I could not move them anymore. if you are on this site you already know what comes after the picking..... Shame, guilt, more anxiety, depression etc..I finally reached a point where I really wanted to stop.
The link above will change your life if you are really ready to stop picking. I would suggest taking an antibiotic while you are trying to break the habit because it will help reduce the temptation to pick if your face is clear. Getting your anxiety under control is also extremely important. Meds, exercise, meditation,,, whatever works for you.
