i have, just today, found out that my lip chewing (actually, inside my bottom & top lip) has a name! ok, lip picking. i have done this for more years than i can remember. i'm 47, i've done this since i can remember. lately, last couple of years, i'm chewing all my waking hours. i have developed wrinkles around my lips and chin from the constant twisting/pulling of my lips. honestly, i have major wrinkles! i'm not sure why this habit/compulsion has accelerated, but i'm powerless. all i want to do is sit and chew. sometimes i wish i could just stow away and chew..no worrying about the wrinkles or stares from people because of my contorted facial expressions. kinda like a crack head just wants to sit alone with their crack pipe and smoke crack! i really feel like an addict.
