You may have already discovered it, but the self monitoring app on this page is free, and I thought it was helpful for helping myself become more aware of when and why I was picking. Taking a step back and looking at that can help you to find solutions. The actual program on here was super helpful to me, I would highly suggest it, if you are able to. I cannot believe how beneficial it has been. Well worth it to me. I'm in my 30s and started picking in my teens, really wish I would have discovered this much sooner. Another thing I have learned, be nice to yourself! Beating yourself up about picking only worsens the problem (I know from experience). A book that was recommended to me "Self-Compassion" by Kristen Neff. I highly recommend it, I kept seeing myself over and over again in this book. Seriously, wish I would have known about it when I was a teenager. Most importantly, you have started your journey to helping and healing yourself, congratulate yourself for that! Acknowledging you need help is the hardest part and the most important step! Good luck, I hope you the best!
