I have never bit my nails, but I do the same things as you. I have dark purple scars and spots because of the damage I've done to my skin.

OMG with exception to the nails...I am the EXACT same way. I am trying so hard to give up my magnifying mirror but im so worried I will not see big groce zits and leave the house - but i still leave the house with scars and sores which I would think would look worse. I am going to take the mirror to work - I cant pick there like I do at home but at least I will be able to check in case there is something - a compromise. I dont pick at my nails because the pain is too intense when they get infected (which is every time I pick them). I pick my lips and nothing stops it so I am going to start therapy. Think it through also, how will you feel when your done, what will your face look like? Are people noticing the scabs and sores? Is that really a zit? Is it reall ready to be removed? Do you deserve this? Do you deserve to be pretty? Try different acne treatments till you find the one that works and stick to it. Dont touch your face and blot the oil with a tissue throughout the day.
