3 days no cuts - December 26th 2010, 02:41 AM

Technically this is 3days without cutting. I'm not even trying to quit and usually cut everyday multiple times, but as I haven't gotten a moment alone the past 3 days, I haven't cut. I want it bad and tonight I'm going on a bender as it were, but for 3 days I did go without

Congrats on three days!! Honestly, that's a big accomplishment. I really hope you keep it and the days of no cutting only increase for you =)
I empathize in wanting it badly tonight. Just gotta keep reminding myself it's not worth it; cuz it isn't.
good luck and stay strong!

Yet the distance remains

Blair,
you can do it gorgeous girl. All of us are strong enough to stop, and if you're not strong enough just yet, keep holding on for as long as you can. Use distraction techniques, I know at first you don't think they work. If you're on PRN medication take it, and if you have family or friends look to them for comfort.

Congrats on the 3 days. You should consider it a big accomplishment. As others have said just keep reminding yourself that its not worth it and your stronger than the urge. -big hug-

Thanks for all the encouragement you guys. I'm done with my microscopic cut-free streak, but it's nice knowing I physically can go 3days without it if I absolutely have to

You went three days without self harm, and that's great. It also may give you some clues as to how you can stop self harming, or at least reduce the frequency. You say the reason you haven't cut is because you didn't get a chance? Maybe keeping yourself busy could help. I know that for me, when I throw myself into a project or activity, I have no time to worry about hurting myself, or not, as the case may be. You could give it a try, if you're so inclined. Good luck, and all the best.
