I've struggled with trich for 16 years. it seems I go through a phase every 4 or so years where I just cannot stop pulling, even doing the things I enjoy most. anybody have any helpful tips on become more proactive to stop? or more aware?

      ive been an avid puller for 8 years, i think the longest ive not pulled was probably 5 days. i try to catch myself doing it, sometimes ill cut my nails super short so i cant have a grip, or put lotion on too. Plus sometimes the lotion burns my eyes so it steers me away from pulling. sometimes i leave my front phone camera on, so if i pull i can physically see my hand being raised and back away from it. although they havent worked as long term for me as id like, these are just some things that got me more aware sometimes :] hope it helped. youre not alone!
