Hey there,

You're right, it is extremely hard to stop, but a month is a great achievement and you should be incredibly proud of yourself for that, and for asking for help as all. It's not easy to ask for help.

If something upsets you or makes you want to self harm, go somewhere quiet and count to ten, and try to get a hold of yourself and then count backwards from ten. You can also try some alternatives. Do something you love to do instead of self harm, watch a movie, go for a run, draw, write or anything really. Here's a list of alternatives also: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

I also recommend talking to someone you trust about the urges and stuff, sometimes just talking out what's upsetting you can help a lot too. You can talk a friend, family member, teacher or a counselor. You could also try writing in a journal too, sometimes it really helps get your feelings out.

I hope I helped a bit. You can get through this, just stay strong and keep your head up. If you ever need anyone to talk to, feel free to send me a message. Good luck and take care!
