I have tried this site years ago to help me quit picking but I wasn’t able to stick to it long enough to quit. I have been picking since I was 11 years old. It has only gotten worse each year. I pick daily ranging from 15 mins to 1.5 hrs a day. Some times I go a day without doing it, but these are very rare. I just want to feel beautiful and confident and stop ruining my skin before it begins to scar…if it hasn’t began to already.
Today I decided in a desperate state, after picking at my face for about 1.5 hours, possibly more, throughout the day that it was time to do something drastic about this. So here I am, letting you see my ugly face. And hopefully when I am finally happy with my appearance I will stop blurring out my eyes.
Notes to self: You really could have, and should have stopped after picking for the first time earlier today. But you kept at it into the night. Because you felt hopeless and ugly once you started. Well, wake up! picking more didn’t make it better, it didn’t make you feel better! You feel terrible now and your skin feels raw and rubbery and like fire. And every time you begin to pick you seem to forgot how you feel afterwards. Well don’t forget, this feeling is not something you want to feel ever again. Isn’t that picture hard for you to look at, isn’t the mirror hard to look into you. This makes you want to hide away forever.
