I haven't been on here in ages but I'm still signed up to this thread for email alerts, so thought I'd stop by and say hi again! A new excuse is resignation. This is who I am, I will never be better, why bother even trying. Sad, but how it seems to me. And Violet Dawn, your "I'm good at it" excuse, ...

The one excuse I have been using very often lately is I don't believe I will ever be able to stop. If I don't believe this then there is no point trying, instead I keep picking and making everything so much worse. My skin looks like an old persons and I'm only 19. I should be able to wear a strappy ...

I hadn't even thought of this until I read this thread, but when I was 12, around the time I started picking on myself, I had a growth spurt which left me really tall and slim and my teacher at the time said I should do some modelling! Maybe I was rebelling against that because I was always of the m...

I know this thread hasn't been active in ages, but I have another excuse that has been a big issue and I only just realised in the last few days. - I have disease/ disorder. Before I came to this site and found out that what I did was SOMETHING rather than me just being strange, I actually occasiona...

Hi ctoll Personally I find that if I am good at not picking my face for a while, I start picking my body more and vice versa. I think that if I want to completely stop picking, I have to stop it everywhere. My picking was initially mainly just my face and over the last 7 years it has spread all over...

Thanks Janine, I always find it so suprising how much other people on here can relate to things that I think are my own personal pains. I thought of another big excuse! It's the society-demands-perfect-skin excuse. Sure it does and it may not be right, but nor is it right for us to use this as an ex...

Janine, everything you said hit home. I sometimes wish I could see my own back so I could pick it properly rather than just scratching and clawing blindly, just so I could get EVERYTHING out because I could do a much better job than anyone else. I have trying very hard to resist the last few days wh...

I completely agree with you Tzipi, that getting the core can help it heal faster, which makes it even worse, because THIS excuse can be true! The problem I have with it is getting JUST the core. I quite often will go further and go back again and again just hoping to get more, even though the main p...

- People should like what is on the inside, not what my skin looks like, so why does it matter if I pick or not? But then I realise trying to stop picking has nothing to do with other people. Maybe not NOTHING, but it has more to do with the confidence I have in myself and how happy I feel inside my...

I thought of some more


I've already picked today, so it won't matter if I just keep going.

I'm not going out this weekend anyway, so noone will notice if I pick.

If I'm picking at least I'm not an alcoholic/drug addict.

I'm not hurting anyone else, so why does it matter?

The excuses I make for picking.

I just thought that it would be helpful for me to make a list of all the excuses and lies I make to justify my picking, so that we can share them. This will allow us to be more aware of them within ourselves and to make us more equipt to combat the excuses. I have been picking so long, one more day/...

Re: At What Point Do You Consider Therapy?

I wonder if perhaps it's all in my head from what I've been reading about and I'm just a hypochondriac. I wonder the exact same thing. I think maybe I do pick, but do I really have a problem? But then I realise how much time I spend doing it (... she says just after finishing a a 1 and 1/2 hour pic...

The scalp and hairline are my easy fixes. I pick there because no-one can really see it!
I quite often just sctach off all the dead skin and the bumpy hair folecules (sp) and roots.
It's just so easy!

Just not having to touch all the time!
I may have had almost pick free days, but the constant touching, to see if everything is alright, creates more trouble than its worth.

To be free.

I bought myself a nice ring a few weeks ago and it is my "twiddle ring". Whenever my hands are bored I move it around and take it off to keep them occupied.

I pick my entire body. Everywhere. From scalp to toe. Not really toe, although ocassionally my feet. But the worst places are my chest, breasts, shoulders, back, back of my arms and face. Actually that a long list of worst and covers most of the body anyway! :? It's so easy to reach my arm down the ...
