    I also used to self harm... You need to find a reason to stop, maybe for a friend, family member, or a loved one, if not for yourself. Tell someone you trust, and they can help you.

    Hugs or ok sometimes.
    I used to self harm when I was a teenager up untell I was around 19. I havent cutt since then and am 27 now. I had to find other ways of letting my pain and anger out other then harming myself. I found things that would make my brain change thought and turn it away from the thought of SI. I also was going to t and they helped me work it out also.

    *TW: SI* Please Help

    I first started cutting when I was thirteen. Since then I have suffered from sever depression, numerous family deaths and serious illnesses, and an abusive relationship. I am trying so hard to stop self harming, but cannot seem to break the habit. I have tried many ideas to no avail. it is said that happiness is a choice. Hearing this only makes me feel worse, I make every effort to be happy but cannot find peace. I would greatly appreciate any advice offered. I am lost and starting to lose hope. Please help me!

    u just have to take it day by day and urge by urge. one thing that been working for me right now is that i tell myself i can not c*t today i can tomorrow but not today. if u say that everyday then tomorrow will not come, its always today. i am starting to realize what my triggers are and i get myself from the situation maybe u can try that also.

    It is a hard thing to stop. Especially if it's a coping mechanism that has worked for you in the past and you don't have new ones to rely on. The biggest thing for me has been coming up with new coping mechanisms to replace the self injury with.

    Here are some distractions that may be helpful to you, I've used several of them myself. http://www.fortrefuge.com/SI-Distractions.html

    Here are some more links and the hotline 1-800-dont cut may also be useful for you. http://www.fortrefuge.com/SI-SH.html

    If you're an abuse survivor over 16, you're also very welcome to register and receive support through the forums and chat as well.

    I wish you luck and strength in your attempt to quit. If you have to do it one minute at a time, you're still doing it.

    I agree with you. I know that I am unhappy and I know all the pain I am putting myself through but sadly I can't stop. People said it was an addiction but I didn't listen.. Message me if you ever need to talk about anything
