I am 48 and have been picking my skin for as long as I can remember. I usually pick the skin around my fingernails but also pick at scabs or any bump or dry patch that I notice. Even worse than the skin picking is my habit of chewing/grinding it between my front teeth (incisors). As a result of this grinding, my upper and lower front teeth are chipped and ground down. I would love to get my teeth fixed with veneers however I don't want to spend the thousands of dollars until I stop this life long habit of picking and grinding. Has anyone successfully stopped this habit? It is so frustrating. I want to stop so badly, but I can't seem to. Even while reading this website, looking for some solution, I catch myself picking and putting it in my mouth to grind.
