Reading your comment is crazy... you said everything i feel and have been through.. ive been picking my face since i was a young child as well.. in the past year i have started picking across the top of my back... i cant stop... i use a needle and tweezers too, and i keep it a secret from my partner who i live with... i work in fashion and its so embarrassing when you dealing with people everyday and you know they are starring at your face... as the year has gone on, ive moved from picking at my forehead ( i had a fringe cut to try and hide it), and since then have moved on to the cheek just to the side of my nose, and now my chin... i jsut went on a binge then and have all these red holes in my face... i dont understand why i cant stop... this compulsion makes me so depressed, but the thing is im doing it to myself... i think of all the things i could achieve if i didnt have this problem... i dont know if i will ever be cured... has anyone else found a way to stop?
