Thumbs down I thought things were going fine - July 28th 2009, 06:07 AM

I havn't really had a major urg to cut in a while and I've held back, but today out of no where I couldn't stop crying. I was listening to Jackson Five for god sakes. Its like I'll be fine for days and then all of a sudden it hits me like a ton of bricks. Damnit. I don't see a reason to stop. My dad won't quit smoking so why should I quit cutting. There both basically used for the same thing. Your harming yourself either way. I just choose cutting over smoking. Whatever I'm just sick of being unhappy and here I go again rambling on. I can't stand myself sometimes.

Hey there! =]

I'm sorry to you're going through so much right now, I know it must be so hard to try and deal with everything! But you should be proud of yourself for reaching out for help; it's not an easy step to take, but it can always help so much. Keeping all that inside wouldn't be a good idea, so I'm glad you're talking to us on here.

I know that, deep down, you know why you can't give into those urges. Cutting hurts you, you don't deserve to hurt. You have so much mental pain already, why add in some physical pain too? It's just too much for one person to handle! Self Harm doesn't help anything; not in the long run. Your dad should stop smoking, but he hasn't. That was an unhealthy choice that he made. What's stopping you making a healthy choice? Self Harm is not the only way to cope with life; you're much better off without it.

When the urges come, how about taking a look at our Alternatives To Self Harm thread? There's so much in there; not everything will work for you, but I'm positive you'll find at least a few things! Even reading through it can be your distraction. But the urges always leave, always. You're so much stronger than those urges. You can fight them.

Just hang in there, you'll get through this.
