Thumbs down So...Did I Fail? - February 1st 2009, 08:55 AM

I went two months without self harm. Then this morning I scratched myself until I bled. Did I fail? I mean. I know we all have slip-ups, but I'm not sure if I want to stop now or not.

*sigh* Support please?

You did not fail. Your right saying we all slip up, personally I when five months, only to start up again.
The fact that you stopped in the first place is so great, don't put yourself down for one slip. Just have to keep trying.
Best luck.

No hun, you didn't fail. Like you said we all have slip-ups, it doesn't mean you've failed. Keep trying. I know it's hard to get back into the mood of wanting to stop when you've slipped up. But you've just got to get back up and try again.

If you fall down then don't get back up again, that's failing. Falling down and trying again, is not. Stay strong hun! You can do this. *HUGS*

No, you didn't fail. 2 months is a long time to go without SH, you did amazingly to get that far. I know how hard it is, but you can start again if you really wanted to. You have it in you!

Thank you guys. ^^
You're all great support. I'm feeling better about it now.
And I think I'm going to keep trying.
Tomorrow will be day one without self harm.

Hey,
Firstly congrates! 2 months is a hell of a long time.. - and you did it!
Everyone has slip ups now and again, Its part off human nature! - so no you never failed Not at all.

What you need to do now, Is to start up avoiding doing it again, I know it may feel harder starting up again but You can do it! Hey you never know this could of been the last time you ever do it..Try and see if you can pass 2months.. ?
You can do itt! I beleive in you.
take care Best of wishes x


Always happy to help =)
I Love Andrea.... =)
Forever.

Hey,

Of course you didn't fail. Continue your recovery. 2 months is an amazing achievement and I bet you can go even further in the future. Everyone relapses and it just makes you all the more detimned not to the next time.
So keep up all the good work.
I'm here anytime you want to talk.

Hurray for the two months! That's really great.
& Just because you slipped up once doesn't mean that you've ruined everything. I'm sure that it will be a lot easier to walk away from Self Harm for awhile since you know you already have before. You'll be able to get back up on your feet just as easily, this is just one little slip up, right? Keep strong. xx

As others ahve said, it's pretty amazing that you went two months without : )
You should be really proud of yourself.
It shows you have the willpower to do another two months. Maybe this time you could go for three? Or four? Or maybe you could do it forever?

Don't give up trying because you didn't fail, you slipped up but you managed to pick yourself up and tell yourself to try once again and you can do that again. You managed two months without doing it so you shouldn't let one or two slip ups ruin that because two months is such an achievement.

I believe you can do it, I really do and I'll always be here to talk to if you ever want to. I know we don't know each other but my PM box is always open, no matter what <3 x

nope not failure.. i cut again after 9 months without. Just start over again.. all you can do.. but those two months, shows you can go even further. Try for 3 months. You can do it!!

Do you see a therapist? If so maybe give him/her your blades, I did that with mine and thats how I went so far.

then I slipped up and bought a new one.. but before I used it I gave it to one of my support people..

You can do it! I am here for support
