PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

So I thought I was alone in this, but apparently many of you did too!

 

We know we're not supposed to pick. We know it can lead to scars and infections.  We know it hurts.  But we can't help it.

 

I'm starting this thread so that anyone who suffers with picking can have a safe space and judgement-free zone.  Please feel free to share whatever you need. 

 

Be warned: some things written here may seem "gross."   Please don't judge or tell us how gross they are.  We got that already, and that's not the point of this thread. 

 

xoxo,

Sure, I apply it after my shower (after towel drying). I really saw an improvement in clarification on my back after the third use. I've been using the spray a little over 2 months now. However, I did notice if I skipped a couple days the acne would come back (but not full force). Just make sure you stick with it or maybe find another alternative, but it was well worth it to me.

Thank you! I forsee myself trying this out :smileyhappy: I tend to get a couple spots on my shoulders/upper back especially if I'm not able to shower quickly after a good workout, hopefully this will help!

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

Thank you so much for starting this thread. We all know it's bad, some of us just can't help it. I've been a picker my whole life. I've been trying to be good, but most of the time I don't even realize I'm doing it until the damage is already done. 

I didn't realize so many others suffer from picking. I hope this thread helps us to overcome our urges and lead us to healthier habits.

Honestly, I didn't realize this was so widespread either. I hope everyone finds this useful. I already have.  Thanks for participating!

Re: PICKING SUPPORT GROUP

As I mentioned in my other thread, my worst offense is cuticles, but I also have issues with other skin imperfections like scabs or blisters.  I've suffered bleeding, painful hands, infected fingers that took weeks to heal, and scabs that turned into major scars because I just couldn't stop fussing at them.

Omg I am so guilty of this I pick at my fingers so bad when I'm stressed that the next day I can't touch anything. Glad to know I am not alone in this disgusting habit.
