Three months, and I'm Still Sober - February 23rd 2009, 12:52 AM

On March 5th, it will be three months since I took any type of blade to my skin intentionally. Lately however, I find myself with almost uncontrollable urges at school. I know what the trigger is, however, I can't get rid of it. Getting out of the room helps, but I always have to return. I know all the alternatives, still I find myself struggling even when I come home because I know I have to return to school tomorrow. At this point I'm just not sure how to keep going. I simply need the support to keep going and not stopping.

And when I'm not sure how to try,
Who will take my hand?

Three months? I would love to be that strong.
You just have to push forward. I draw 3d cubes when I get an urge, just the same thing over and over. It distracts me long enough for it to fade, or for me to gather some will power.
Good luck, feel free to pm.

Wow 3 months is great, well done!

I know what you mean, I'm also 3 months free and college is a really bad place for thoughts. Getting out of the room is a good idea, just to give yourself a break from whatever is triggering you. Willpower is the key, fight those urges, try to focus on the lesson as much as you can.
