Congratulations!! That is fabulous
If you don't want to, you don't have to. It's as simple as that. Find whatever made you not want to self harm the last time--how about how proud you feel for going a week without doing it?--and use that. If you relapse, well, it's part of recovery. Rome wasn't built in a day. Move slowly, take baby steps. There may never be an 'again'. xoxo if you need a chat, I'm here.

Congratulations on making it to a week! That's a great accomplishment! I bet you can make it to two.

If you are feeling triggered, check out the Alternatives Thread. It will give you some good ideas to help beat the urges. They don't all work for everyone, so if you don't find one that works at first, keep trying until you do.

If you ever need someone to talk to, message me.

That's such an awesome accomplishment! I'm proud of you! Even if you slip up, you still have the fact that you made it to one week before. It happened and nothing and no one can take that away from you. And even if you relapse, you made it to one week and you can do it again and then some! You're so much stronger than you think! Hang in there. You can do this!


Hope is real. Help is real. LOVE is the movement.

Great job! That's such an amazing accomplishment and you should definitely be proud of yourself. As for when you feel like you need to self-harm again, try checking out some of the alternatives that I'm-moving-on posted above. They don't all work for everyone, but keep trying until you find something that will. Don't give up!
