I recently managed to get myself to stop picking acne, but now I have some acne scars all over my body. How long do they take to go away usually?

In brief: A few options

Skin bleaching with various agents or peels may help as well as resurfacing techniques depending on he exact nature of the discoloration which may benefit from glycolic acids peels, hydroquinone, kojic acids, etc.
Ipl, lasers or microdermabrasion or dermabrasion are also options, avoid sun exposure while being treated.

In brief: Depends...

..On depth of scar. Many times, pimples won't scar. In more severe cases, the scar can be deep enough to exist forever. Also depends on area of body.
Chest heals differently than face.
