looking for a "buddy"

Hi everyone! So I am looking to find someone to check in with daily. Im 20 and have been picking for 7 years. Ive done a lot of work around educating myself about this addiction, actively working for my sobriety (with tracking my picking/ its causes), doing therapy, and recently "coming out" to friends and family, but I realize now I need more support.Its been a while since Ive used the forum, and I am trying to get back into using it more frequently, but Im also thinking that corresponding with someone one-on-one, every day might help. It seems having someone to hold me accountable is important for my recovery. Is anyone interested in doing a daily email or IM thing? Im would hope that we could share as much as we wanted to, but also keep it short, like a "check-In" if need be.If you're interested maybe leave your email and we can chat. Anyway Im happy to be re-connecting with the anti-picking community. More power and love to all of us.

Hey! My email is I was going to have it the same as my user name here, but it is too long. I'm a girl, I'm in university, I'm a shy person. I have picked since I was about 14. My picking was/ is quite severe and has caused me loads of stress. I'm on day 6 of my 4th attempt to stop picking. Feel free to email me your progress and a blurb about your day or anything :) And I'll reply.
