I wanted to stop, but I didn't know how. I had started to believe stopping wasn't possible.
Finally, I radically reduced my picking thanks to steps I created for myself. I later learned these steps correlate with proven body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) treatments.
Despite the complicated names for these disorders (trichotillomania, dermatillomania, onychophagy), the ebook is not medical or academic. It's a reader-friendly guide that shares clear steps so you can feel in control rather than desperate, confident rather than ashamed—so your hair, skin, or nails can be more like you want them to be.
What the BFRB Guide Is
Tips and strategies are part of healing, and the BFRB Guide shares plenty, but it goes beyond that. It covers a process to radically reduce or even stop your picking, pulling, or biting.
THANK YOU! Finally a Helpful BFRB Book
I have been searching for a book that would help me stop my BFRB, but a lot of the resources I found weren't very helpful. Therapy for BFRBs can be expensive.
If you're looking for a book to help you heal from that behavior you feel is uncontrollable—look no further. I urge you to read her book, try the advice given in the book, and see how it will help you.
Thanks Lauren! I am so happy your healing has led you to help others heal as well. :)

All BFRBers Are
This guide will be particularly helpful if…
- You have dermatillomania.
- You target blemishes (zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, milia), ingrowns, and the like.
- You’re unsure why you do it and have tried covering mirrors, using gloves, or marking a calendar, among many other things.
This guide will also help you if...
- You have trichotillomania, onychophagia, dermatophagia, or another BFRB.
- You target hairs (head, lashes, brows, beard); your nails, fingers, cheeks, feet, scalp; or something else.
- You have an idea why you pick, pull, or chew (and I don’t mean just “to get that thing off me!”) but haven't been able to heal to a meaningful extent.
Fantastic book with a holistic and logical approach to help control and overcome body focused repetitive behaviours. For me, dermatillomania has hindered my full potential and for the longest time I tried to face it with just sheer willpower alone, not really knowing where to start apart from thinking 'Just don't pick!'.
This book will help you to curb your urges and triggers and feel more in control, as long as you follow all the advice and trust yourself and the process. I'm looking forward to healthier skin and a happier me.
