Ive decided to try and quit - January 23rd 2011, 03:35 AM

Ive decided to try and quit cutting myself. It might be hard but im gonna try really hard. My parents found out again annd it really made them mad. And I felt bad about it. And I knew that it was my fault. I want to thank everyone who has given me advice about it. If i do it again I will have to just try again. If you have any advice to making it a little easier please help. Thanks. I hope I make it.

We'll be here to support you great news that you are trying to quit.
I found learning to procrastinate really helped. If I ever felt really crap I'd go read the news, check facebook, play some thing like Bejewelled Blitz.
Just thinking "Oh I'll do it later" or "Maybe tomorrow" and eventually it just got pushed out my mind. Sure I thought about it every now and again, the occasional relapse isn't unheard of.
Good luck, keep us posted

Hey there!

WOW! This is really inspirational! Its amazing that you're trying to stop self harming! It can be really hard and of course there are going to be times you start to struggle with urges but you have the strength to beat this! Remember to use distractions. Heres a list to alternatives to self harm is yo haven't already seen it ... http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/. Some of these can really help but if you come across something which doesn't help, don't give up on them. Keep trying the different things!

We're always here to support you so if you're struggling don't be afraid to come to use for support!

Keep your chin up.

It is great that you are trying to stop, i agree that you should have a look at some of the links Jessica has put on. Alternatives are a great idea, they may not all work but kep trying until you find one that does.
Take care and Stay strong

Its not about the failures, its about dusting yourself off and getting back on track. Almost everyone slips up, its natural. Don't let it stop you from continuing to try.

You will have slips, the road to recovery is going to be hard but you have to keep going and focus on your goal of stopping completely. I agree with Julz its about dusting yourself off and getting back on track.

The best thing to do is to hold your head high, and think on the positive side.
I applaud you on your decision to stop. =]
It takes a lot of courage and strength to do that, and I wish you well.

First of all AWESOME, that you are tryig to stop!! (: I know how hard it is, I struggled with self harm for a little over a year. When my parents first found out, they sent me to a therapist, and after j few months I just starte to realize that I dont need to hurt myself to deal with my emotions. I think first of all, you need to figure it exactly why your cutting. What triggers it exactly? What are you feeling exactly right before you cut ? Try to talk yourself out of it, when you feel whatever emotions comic on. Think positive, you can do anything f you really want it and don't forget that you are never a lone
