Hello, I'm 20years old and I've been picking the skin on my face for about 5years. I dont know why I do it, I just do it and it makes me feel horrible. I haven't had any sleep last night, I always get scared at the results of the usual "last night picking", you know what I mean.. While i'm typing this, I have toothpaste on my face so I won't pick it again.. sounds very silly and stupid does it? I don't wanna go out because i'm ashamed of my skin. It isn't always this way, sometimes I just stand for even as long as an hour in front of the mirror, picking all of the slight imperfections on my skin and instead of "fixing" them, I ruin my face. I know I would have a pretty good skin if I just wouldn't pick it, that is why this is so frustrating and I feel stupid and weak because I cant control myself the very least in this case. This is a neverending picking cycle for me, when finally the skin on my face heals, I know I'll do it again. I need to stop. How?
