I have an extremely bad habit. I pick the pads of my fingers or my lips. I've been doing this for years and can't break the habit. How do I stop this?
Looks like you. Have been diagnosed with anxiety ; receive fluoxetine ; behavior therapy. Don't know which form of behavioral therapy - but cognitive behavioral therapy can prove helpful for compulsive behaviors. Do you have a psychiatrist? If so, is that provider aware of this on-going behavior? Sometimes a change in medication dose or type can be helpful.
