Help Please

Im 25 years old and dealing with this problem for as long as I can remember. I just had an episode with picking my face in the bathroom that I finally decided to figure out what I need to do to stop these urges. I don't know how everyone else feels but I do it and I'm not really thinking about what I'm doing during the process its like a zone out. I feel absolutly awful after I have done it and can see the results. I'm in a pretty happy time in my life and the urges have slowed down a little bit. I can usually make it 48hrs without having the urge. It helps when I have people around or my boyfriend stay the night but the minute I know that I have some alone time I find my self sitting in my sink of my bathroom and picking things that dont exist. I now have 2 scars that I'm trying to heal with retinol. I'm starting to get very depressed about this the older I get and the less elasticity my skin has. I don't know what to do at this point I thought this would help to know that I am not alone. Has anyone bought the book and gotten results? How do I get through this... I don't pick because I'm stressed or depressed but the picking and the permanent results are making me feel that way. If anyone is out there?
