If you have anything you need to do, like around your house or room or with work/homework, save it for tomorrow. I always do that to keep myself from cutting while being home alone. I just try to keep myself busy until somebody else comes home.

Invite a friend over? It's not a long-term solution obviously but it'll stop you from doing anything that day.

For me personally, I'm home alone a lot and I've learnt to like it. I see it as an oppourtunity to completely relax and not be distracted by other people. Maybe do an assignment or something that requires your full attention? Or just get out of the house- go for a walk. Sorry I can't help more

I used to be the same home alone. I've gone better now. I just watch a film, do homework, clean, listen to music really loud or do anything to get my mind off it.

Maybe phoning a friend may be a good idea?

I love being home alone. What you do is you get a few dvds, or line up something on tv. Get some nice pop or something, some nice food, and just chill out and enjoy having the place to yourself. It doesn't have to be a bad thing at all. Good luck

Re: how do you deal home alone? - June 7th 2010, 03:05 AM

When I'm home alone I turn up my music super loud and run around the house and dance like a maniac haha... endorphines are a natural high... and natural highs are good for yah so it's way better than the high you get from cutting or drinking... even run around the house and yell!!! YEAH MAN! I do that when I'm frustrated or angry... don't think about the bad stuff when ur alone. Think about how you can do anything and nobodies gonna bug you about it hehe. I wouldn't advise snooping around in other peoples rooms tho, u can find some pretty weird stuff.

If you get scared or upset while home on your own, it can help to have someone to talk to. Try inviting a friend over, or if you can't phone or text a friend. Even chatting with a friend online can be a good idea, a little company so you don't feel entirely alone can sometimes help a lot.

Or you could always invite a friend round.
