Question No relief anymore - September 13th 2013, 11:35 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

The first i've sh, i was very overwhelmed, and when i cut, i felt so peacefull, so calm, you know, such a good feeling. I've never been addicted to it so I've stopped during all the summer, and i kind of relapsed 2 days ago.
I cut, but i didn't feel anything. Sure, it cleared my mind, but it didn't feel like before.
Is this normal or weird? I've never felt the same feeling that i've had the first time.

I'm not well-informed on SH specifically, but it sounds like it's impact is far less than it used to be for you. People change over time and we have different preferences for things and go through phases, so I don't think there's anything weird about your lessened enjoyment of SH.

I wasn't sure from your post whether you want advice or not, but I tentatively suggest that it may be a good idea to find other ways of satisfying whatever need it is that you were trying to satisfy with the SH.

I think I know what you mean, and it was similar for me. After ages of not having cut, I cut and yeah it just wasn't the same, and really wasn't how I'd remembered it.

Hello there

I would like to agree with Satine.

Over time people change, some people change alot and others dont change that much.
you could have changed so much other this time that the enjoyment would not be there anymore.

but also it would be better to find other ways of enjoyment and as soon as you see what other things is out there that can give you enjoyment you would completely forget about SH because there is something else something better in its place

Good Luck
