SCAB PICKING

I am a 50 year old male and have been picking scabs on my legs and arms since I was a teenager.  My dad also picks scabs on his legs as long as I can remember.  My son is now 20 and I do not want him to develop this habit.
I have tried to quit on my own but have never been successfull.  I finally went to a physician and they prescribed Prexiva at 30 mg..  All that seems to have happened is that it messed with my sex life.  Has anyone ever quit doing this sucessfully and how did they do it?  I have not been able to find one person who has quit successfully.  I really want to stop but don't know how to begin.  Can you help?

Well explain to your son how you dont like doing it, Perhaps you need a med from your Doc to stop getting spots you have to pick in the first place, and then just try to make your self stop, ask why you do it , maybe some councilling will help.
