Talking I did it... - January 27th 2009, 11:57 AM

I threw away my razors this morning!!!! I can't believe it. I haven't cut since Thursday, and that cut ended up being an epiphany, whether it will stay like that or not. But this morning before I went to school I threw my razors away, so I would lose the temptation that is always staring at me.
I really do hope this will last. I am trying to figure out things to replace it though. Kinda like distractions.

I'm just waiting for it to hit me, that I won't be able to cut when I want to. I will freak out, I know I will, but I am gonna try not to.

Well done!!!
Im sure you can do this, go you!


But when the night is falling
And you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give

OMG! good job! *hugs* I'm so proud of you!!


I either feel like no one cares, and that I should be breaking things, and that everything is falling apart, or that everything is great, and I can do anything, and I really do have friends.

I'm stuck halfway in between.

Hey, hey, hey! Good job, you!

Look, print out the distractions sticky on this forum, and highlight the options you think could work, so when you feel the urge next time, instead of a razor, you'll have a personalized list of things to try instead.

Good luck. I'm proud of your decision.
