    I pick because I feel people are looking at

    them, not me. I get stressed and I start... I can't help it... They bleed or a lot of skin is removed...

    Yea

    I like friggin dig my nails under that sucker and pick at it, and make sure I get the core out, and make sure it starts bleeding. I don't get a lot of zits, but when I do it's fun to play with them. Sometimes I'll sit and pop all the zillions of blackheads on my nose and chin...

    Stupid Zits!

    I am a otherwise beautiful woman. My only downfall are these huge, ugly, gross zits all over my face! And I can't stop picking them! (Which only makes them bigger, uglier & even more gross!) I'm 37 years old, why do I have zits? :P

    Pick At My Zits Due To Stress

    Okay, I have developed a bad tendancy to pick at my armpits and face for the past two years. I pick at the zits until they bleed. This started in middle school and was much worse than it is now. I would stress due to grades, fanfiction, or family issues. I would go stand in...

    F***Me and My Skin!

    Yeah, so I get a zit, and I go into this transe where I just have to pick it! I pick one, and then I have to do another, and then I start squeezing blackheads, until my face get's all red and scabbed. It's terrible!
