Hey there!

I'm sorry that you're struggling with this. 1 thing I would strongly suggest you doing is looking at the Alternative sticky located at the top of the Self Harm forum. I'm glad that you're reaching out to find a way to stop, that's really good. If you ever need anyone to talk feel free to PM/VM!

Hey there,

First of all, great job for going 3 months without cutting! You should be very proud of yourself.

I have the same problem as you- no one to talk to. It's hard being alone, but there are always other things that you can do to help stop self harm.

Have you found what triggers you yet? Some good advice I have gotten is to keep a journal. If you write your feelings in it when you want to cut, it might help you decide what makes you turn to self harm. That way you can try to avoid your triggers.

Another thing you can do is look at the alternatives to self harm page on the top of this forum. It has many things you can do instead of SH when you get the urge. Some things I do are listen to music and read, but there are many other options.

welcome to TH by the way. If you want to talk about anything, feel free to PM or VM me. I'd love to hear from you! Stay strong. You can get better

The others have given good advice.

For reference - you can find the Alternatives thread quickly using http://TeenHelp.org/alternatives.

I'd like to reiterate how very well you've done managing to go without SH for three months. That's incredibly impressive.
Everyone has relapses - so try not to feel too down about it, and well done for trying to get all the help you can. We're all here behind you.

Skittlify me up...
