How can man die better? Than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his father, in the temple of his gods.

Hey, Allie!

I'm really glad that you're trying to fight this urge. Right now would be a good time to stop and think about what upset you. Have you taken a look at the alternatives thread? It takes a while to read it, which within itself is a distraction. You could watch funny YouTube videos or look at the different surveys to complete under Chit Chat. If you'd like to talk about anything that happened to upset you, send me a message any time!

Hey there,

I am sorry you are struggling so much but I think it is important to remember that this will pass. I know when you are struggling with really bad urges it is hard to see past them but try and stay calm and remind yourself that this will pass.

When I am struggling with urges I will go for walks and try and get out of the house. I tend to harm myself when I am at home so if I get out of the area that I harm myself I am safer. Do you think it would be possible for you to get out and go for a walk when you are struggling with these intense urges? What are some other things you have been able to do when you have had urges? I think you should consider looking at the Alternatives to Self Harm and try and find some things that you can use to try and fight these urges you are having. If you have to go down every single thing on that list and try them and if that doesn't help repeat that until the urges go away.

Do you know what is causing this intense urge? If you can work on figuring out what is causing the urge you can work on trying to figure out how to resolve the urge. One thing you might be able to do is journal. I know that when I am struggling with urges I journal and it seems to help me quite a bit and maybe it will help you.

I really hope that this helped and if you need anything please feel free to message me.

Hi, Allie!

I'm really sorry that the urge is so bad right now, but I'm happy you're trying to fight it. Is it an urge, or did something happen to make you sad and wanna self-harm? Either way, you can PM me if you wanna talk. Also, doing some things Cassie suggested would be really helpful doing an urge. You can check out the self-harm alternatives list too.

You can do this. Even if you do relapse, just be proud of each urge you get past. Relapses do happen but what matters is that we pick ourselves back up. Recovery's definitely possible, people have recovered and you can too. Stay strong.
