Yep, all the time.  It's something I've always struggled with to one degree or another.  In the last few months it's been pretty bad.  I try to stay mindful of it.  Also, manicures help me stay away from doing this.

I used to pick my arms and they were scarred all up and down. Just try to realize that every time you pick you could be making permanent scars. Try to do anything you can to stop, including just distracting yourself. Tell your brain no!! that's what I had to do. My arms finally look almost 100% but it took a long time. It feels like you get sucked in when you start something like that and I know it's hard to stop.. sometimes I find that playing certain games let me focus that same energy/obsessive thing on a game. It's at least a healthier way than hurting yourself/ scarring yourself. I hope you can stop, just try with all of your will power and Def. try to pull away from it.
