Hi, I too am still struggling with picking after many attempts to stop. The reason we’re picking is because of anxiety. It creates tension in the body that needs to be released somehow. It’s not really effective to address the picking if the anxiety isn’t addressed. I even feel that if the anxiety is halted we would just “miraculously” stop picking as the tension wouldn’t exist anymore. Now the question is— how on this earth do we fix anxiety??
