I had a great week where I used a lot of my strategies and got my picking down just a bit. But then the next week, seemingly out of nowhere, the urge seemed tenfold along with my desire to do it instead of my commitment to resist. It theoretically should've been okay because it wasn't near my period, which always makes the physical urges more intense.
Could this be a sign of withdrawal? Has this happened to anyone else in some capacity? How have you dealt with it? I wasn't able to find any articles on skin picking and withdrawal, so please share if you find something.
