1 common trick that my mind likes to play on me is the pimple game. I will sometimes get a pimple in or near my eyebrows that confuse my picking urges. What I have been trying to teach myself to do in these situations is plan ahead.
A few days ago I could feel the soreness of a new bump on my brow. I looked in the mirror and told myself that these times are usually tough for me due to the abundance of sensation that it gives me. I told myself to GET OVER IT!!! This is not new. This is not exciting. This is not exhilarating. This is a problem. A problem that can be fixed if you just be strong and fight the feeling for a few days
So far so good…
I am not a picker anymore!!!!….
