hey, trust me cutting is not the answer, hurting yourself will just make you more sad, and possible give you grief later in life, if u need to cut somthing go cut wood, cutting yourself wont solve anything xxx

Have tried looking at the alternatives that are on TH? Clicky It could give you some hints on how to fight the urges or maybe try seeking professional help. You don't have to try and fight this alone.

Don't be afraid, Its ok. I am sure you can make it through; most of the time we have more inner strength than we could ever imagine! Make sure you check out the self harm alternatives thread that faith linked you too because its really great If you can identify things that make you want to self harm you can do things to help avoid self harming, you can find alternatives. You have got through without self harm before and I think you can do it again - Believe in yourself

I am so happy you have quit SH! That is such an amazing accomplishment and you should be so proud of yourself! Don;t focus on if you cut or not. Focus and think about how far you have come. And if you relapse.. you relapse. It;s all part of the healing process. I've relapsed many times, but its all about how you get back up and keep going. Best of luck :]


Be soft.

The more you worries about going over old steps the more you are going to get closer to cutting again. I do know how hard this can be for some people. I found mine so easy to stop while my friend is still trying and has re started so many times. the more you talk to people about your problems and when your going to cut the easier it should become. Talking will make you forget about it... Why not find someone on here and add them onto MSN or something?

Hey there Stephanie,

It is great that you're asking for help and advice, that's very good. Have you talked to anyone offline about this? It may be a good start for you.

I think think that it's important that you address the issues that are making you feel depressed. It's understandable that you may not know why you're depressed but if you sit down and try to write down how you're feeling or if you try and talk to someone about how you're feeling then it may become clearer to you. Try to keep busy and do things that you enjoy doing, Stephanie. Do something every day that you enjoy.

If you don't want to start cutting again then you most certainly don't have to! You are in control of this Stephanie. It is okay to be afraid of relapse but there is no need to be afraid. You will be okay. Of course, if you do get the urge, which isn't unusual, then you may want to try out some distractions and keep your mind busy. There is a good list of alternatives [here] which you may want to try out.

You are in control of this and you can get through this.
Take care.
