Four Months - July 7th 2012, 10:23 PM

Right now, I've gone four months without self harm.

It has taken an awful lot of work, and I definitely can't say the urges are gone, because they're just as bad as ever.

I just wanted to thank everyone who has helped me get this far, when my goal was just to get to a month and four days.

Stay strong!

Congratulations on being 4 months free! I'm jealous!

Is there a certain way you did it, like the butterfly/bracelet challenge? I'm just asking because I need some inspiration and you've done so well!

Stay strong!

Hey

I just wanted to say how amazing I think it is that you're four months self harm free. I have no idea how you can do it and I think it's really inspirtational for not only myself, but for other users on the site. You should be really proud of yourself!

I know the urges are still bad for you so remember we're always here to help you as much as we can do and that you are not alone in this.

Keep on smiling, you can do this!
Jessie

Four months without SH is an wonderful feat! That's over a hundred days! Definitely reward yourself with something. Before you know it, it'll be half a year since you've SH. Give yourself an even bigger reward.

Then in the winter, it'll have been a whole year. A YEAR! You can do it, keep your head high and back tall.

Anna, I used a combination of things. I have used the butterfly project a million times (that's how I found the site). I've used the alternatives list. And I've just talked to people and vented whenever the urges got to be too much for me. I also try to avoid triggers as much as possible.

Thanks again everyone, and I appreciate all the support and advice. I may try the rewards system.
