It’s really hard for me to stop picking my skin. The longest I’ve gone is a couple months (which was a few years ago). I’m trying hard to now. I went two weeks not long ago but failed...again. It’s pretty freaking hard. I have to not look or feel if I want any chance at it doing anything. It all just sucks...

Wow two months is so much! I mean if I reach two monthes I'm gonna be so proud of myself. I have a 58 day record (until a big fail), but it was with slipps and little stuff going on almost everyday, so it's not really a big accomplishment. Now I'm trying totaly "clean" days. Right now my goal is two perfect weeks. Day five now...

My first week has just ended, it was probably the most succefull week i have ever had, minimum urge and very much in control.However, I constantly thought about it but more in a "just don't fail now!" kind of way, like I'm just constantly praising my self in my head for and imagening me in a year like I've beat this thing (and it's such a long way from where I'm now). Anyways it's still very occupaing my mind so gotta stop with that otherwise I'll break pretty soon. Well starting my second week!!!!!

So, it's been two weeks now, there were moments when I was this close to giving up, but it feels like if I give up now so I'm lost forever so I was strong and had two completly clean weeks. Now I'm going to try 21 clean days (thats how long it takes alchoholist to get rid of the physical dependence so it sounds like a promising number of days) so tomorow will be day No1.

So happy for your success! Keep going :) I have learned that it is helpful not to look at is so much as a 'will power' thing, because when I make a mistake I feel so bad that I have no will power and am so weak. I really like to think about equanimity, acknowledging the urge and letting it be rather than 'fighting' against it. If I allow the urge to sort of coexist with me but not act on it, more often that not, it eventually weakens and then goes away. It also helps me to be a little more at peace with myself if it do mess up, which actually helps me be more successful more often! Hope this helps. Continue to be encouraged!

So, yesterday, day number 15, I relapsed. Well besides messing up my face I do feel somewhat less tense. So if i can do 35 clean days after this, it means I have made a progress (mentally speaking). As long as I won't go on binge days as I do usually after a long pereiod without touching.

The most I can stop picking is for a day or two......once I stopped for a week but that was the longest I've ever stopped in 3 years ;(
