I had gone like for 2 months without picking and this whole week I’ve been picking. It was really depressing being able to have a normal life without picking and then picking and picking and feeling worthless and back to square 1 . Was really hard but no one to blame but me… Any way I wanted to let you all know that I found this very educational and helping website about picking I read the whole thing and it has given me a motivation to stop and alot of ideas to put in practice and very very educational. The website is stoppickingonme.com Hope it helps you in any way. I also seen that alot of more people are talking more about this issue like in youtube. If you guys now of any websites that are helping you please let me know thanks

My face is healing from all the picking i’ve done for the past two weeks. I need to continue not to pick and hopefully as soon as i get money go to the dermotologist or a spa or something so they could help my face get better or something. I’m gonna put my all so i wont pick and mess up for the 100th time already i hope i could actually do this once and for all…
I hope i could just stop picking once and for all ….
Reality just hit me and big time… I have been picking for 8 yrs already since i was 14 and i thought this would be a phase were eventually i would stop the picking but i cant no matter how much times i try or what i do i cant stop picking.I cant believe its been 8 yrs of this nightmare. Reality just hit and i came to the conclusion that I just have to accept this as part of my life and its never gonna change unless a miracle happens and i dont ever break out yeah like if thats going to happen … I try and try and try and try and fail and fail and fail so i just have to accept it once and for all this is part of me of who ui am and who i have become… this is part of my life and theres nothing i can do anymore its more the PAIN that i feel when i say am not going to pick and i do it. I hate myself for it for letting me down for having hopes that i was gonna change that i was gonna live a normal life its more the pain the depression i get!!! I beat myself up for it I am my own worst enemy … I’m to hard on myself i just have to accept this maybey the pain will be less and i dont get my hopes up that am gonna change this horrible bad habit . Seriously its hell when is it gonna end ? Only God knows …. For me am not gonna say or think that am not picking because i do pick and the feeling is much worse …. so maybey if i expect the picking the pain will be less the pain it’s always gonna be there but at least i wont lie to myself having high hopes and the fall wont be as bad …. I dont know what to do anymore …. my dreams of having clear beautiful skin are gone forever ….

I’m starting over once again and hopeefully this time it works I had lost hope gaven up because believe me this is getting really really old and its really exhausting both physically and mentally so sad and depressing I have to keep trying for my family for myself and most importantly for my daughter…
I really dont know anymore… This is a rollercoaster and its NO fun :( One minute am happy as can be and the next sad and depressed. I was really doing good, I was going to therapy and excersing,eating healthy drinking more water, going out having fun and I was keeping busy…and then all of the sudden this same bump comes back when it was almost gone!! Its like a big bump but with no head ugh I pinched it so it could just pop already and nothing!! so I squeezed a few others not that bad,but that big bump is really stressing me out it bugs!!! just from that i get all this anxiety and sadness because I was doing so good…. UGH I HATE PIMPLES !!! Its mixed emotions your fine and then your not happy then sad worried and anxiety ,stressed and comes deppresion and sadness and the guilt the pain the failure the negative thoughts in your head that wont let you at peace with yourself!!! I mean ONE bump created this whole thing!!! I CANT LET IT GO!!!! thats why I could never be at peace with myself its a never ending WAR!!! Its always raining in my head ….Imagine being chained to the one person in the world who you hate the most… and you know you’ll never be able to escape from them … Imagine realising that you HATE who you’ve become… and knowing that you have to live with that person who has hurt you so much for the rest of your life…. When is this gonna end ?
I’m so sad and depressed.. I had 13 days without picking my face and on Wednesday I couldn’t anymore I picked its just that I was full of black heads and white heads everywhere and I couldn’t stand it anymore!!!! Then I picked on Thursday cuz it didn’t make a diffrence I had already picked any way … so I feel terrible now all my hard trying not to pick was worthless today is very depressin because my 2 yr old daughter looked at me and said mommy has a boo boo and pointed at my face I started crying cuz she was touching my face to make it better!!! My poor baby needs to have a strong mom not all picking on her face feeling like shit!! I’m so tired of this never ending story . I need to srop picking and live a nice happy life… for my daughter my husband and for our future kids I don’t wanna be like this anymore but how do I stop? Now I feel so ugly with all my face picked and swollen …. I have rhis huge bump on my forehead its so swollen I can’t even touch it…. for you my baby I have to stop….. know that I think about it when I was pregneant I would pick and 2 yrs later still doing it when I promised I wouldn’t for my baby cuz its affecting me tremendousley .I love my baby…. she could no longer see her mommy in these conditions what’s so ever ….. I have to be strong and healthy and most of all STAY POSITIVE please pray for me. Thanks
