Thank you so much for sharing this! I went to home depot today and picked up some artscape brand window film. I've covered one mirror so far - it was fairly easy to do and I already feel calmer knowing that I can't see my pores or blemishes in the mirror I primarily use for picking. The artscape brand said the removal is easy (this was important as I think my parents would kill me if I permanently obscured my bathroom mirrors lol)

After having picked for 10+ years, and now at the height of another relapse, I am going cold turkey on looking in mirrors. I think you're absolutely right that they are the ultimate mediator of this behavior, as I too would spend 3-4 hours a day picking to get my deep ingrown hairs out. Let's hope this helps and we can control the urge to pick now!
