Do any of you keep a skin picking journal? If you do what do you keep track of? Thank you

I'm not too motivated to keep a journal because I'm afraid that 50 percent of the time I will fail myself and pick. It will be more of a rant of self disdain and unhappiness. I have not isolated any particular triggers...seems there are too many. The common misconception of picking when bored for example....well last time I picked after I felt extremely tired from a long day. Sometimes I see users mentioning one thing as if avoiding it will cure the issue ...and it's just not the case. Even if I exercise and stay busy I'm still likely to pick. I don't see patterns in this behavior. certain things might affect and trigger it.. but again there is no clear fix.
