Haven't cut myself in aages. Months even. Except a minor one off relapse in September. Im really pleased with myself. I never decided to stop, it just kind of happened. I guess im getting better at managing my emotions, Im able to fight the urges and not cut myself. I occasionally get a burst of anger in which I punch the nearest wall, desk or solid object in range, but so regret doing it afterwards when I have a big swollen bruised hand lol but anyway im glad I haven't cut. Now to get rid of these years old scars....

Well done Sabah!

I'm so proud of you and I'm thrilled to hear it!

Hopefully this should motivate people that are struggling with SH, like me for example, to stop.

Great Job!

Congratulations, well done!

I do that too at times, punch things and I wind up with a bluish bump at the impact site, then I end up pressing it until it goes away. But I'm glad you're finding other outlets besides cutting.

You can do this! Continue to "manipulate" your emotions, and soon it won't even be "manipulation" because it'll just come naturally.

Hey there,

I am really proud of you for not cutting in so long! That's a really great accomplishment and I bet you can go even further, too! Continue to find ways to manage your emotions, including the anger so you don't feel the need to punch things, but you're doing really awesome!

Re: :D - November 12th 2013, 09:50 PM

Thanks everyone It feels great. I don't actually know how to explain it, at one point (bearing in mind this was a good few years ago) I couldn't stop, I didn't want to stop because it had gotten so normal for me to do it, it was the only thing I knew, the only way I could deal with things, it just became my natural form of escape. but now its like the other way around, I didn't even realise I had stopped until i'd gone a few days without doing it and then a few weeks and now a few months. It is so worth it. It really is and I hope you Jack among others will be able to manage your emotions better too xx

This thread makes me really happy. It's amazing to look back at where you were years ago and compare that to where you are now, and realise how much you've grown and how much better you've become at managing your emotions. It's great that you've found a way to keep going without resorting to self harm, and it sounds like you're happier for it. You have every right to be proud, because this is an amazing achievement.
