Hun, Sometimes not everyone is going to be there when you need them . So , instead of cutting yourself up try different alternatives to cutting. I'm also here if you need to talk or if you feel like ranting , i'm the person you can come to. PM me anytime .

Hey Corrina,

I know this probably isn't exactly what you want to hear, but a lot of times we have to learn to get through things on our own before we get any help in life. It's not fair, but sometimes the greatest gift is knowing how to help yourself.

It sounds like you're using the fact that nobody is there to support you as a reason why you can't quit self harming. Obviously it is easier when you have support, but that doesn't mean it's impossible to quit when you don't. Support is a nice bonus, not a necessity. You CAN get through this on your own, even if it seems like it won't be easy. Self harm is a difficult thing to get through, with or without help.

I would encourage you to tell your parents or anyone else in your life you think might be of support to you, because it really does help. But if you can't find anyone, don't feel like you can't do this. You can.

Hey Corrina,

I just wanted to echo everything that Amanda said. You've probably already heard this, but TeenHelp has a great list of alternatives to self-harm, and you should definitely look it over a couple of times. Whenever you feel like self-harming, try one of those instead, and keep trying them until you find one that works.

People definitely make dealing with self-harm much easier. Is there anyone else you could open up to who would be willing to help you in the same way? I know that I absolutely would not have been able to stop SH if my friends weren't there to help me through it.

Be strong. I have faith in you, and you can beat this.


"Want to know a secret?

You are beautiful.

Someone out there can't stop thinking about you. You Are Beautiful. Don't ever believe differently."

If you ever want someone to talk to, about absolutely anything, feel free to inbox me!

First I want to say that you ALWAYS have support on TH. You can use the LiveHelp if it's online, you can use the Advice&Support Chatroom, you can post a thread, you can PM someone, including me (I check my inbox many times a day). I know you have tried some of the alternatives but I find that going through the list until I find something that helps takes a lot of time and sometimes by the time I have tried about 15 things my urges have gone down a least a little. When you find that one doesn't work just go on to the next one. In the end if you don't want to stop then trying to stop isn't going to work, but if you want to stop, I believe that you can. I am also trying to stop, I'm not going to say it's easy because it's not, but if you want to you can.

Hey Coco!

It's great to hear that you want to quit SH. It's a very addicting habit, and those two days you went without it? That is totally amazing! I know you can do even better [= If you ever need to talk, PM me. Everyone on TH would love to help and support you!
