Sora,
It is ok to cry. Go ahead, it could help you feel better. If you are trying not to cut then that is a big step. Trying shows that you are strong. When quitting self harm you are inevitably going to have slip ups. But what is important is that you dont give up trying. Wanting to cut and actually cutting are two completley different things. Be proud of yourself next time you want to but are able to stop yourself, becuase that will show progress. It is normal for a self harmer to want to cut, but you have to try your hardest to resist that urge. It is going to feel amazing when you stop yourself and you are going to be sooooooo proud of yourself when you are self harm free. So dont give up, you can do this. Good Luck
I have experience with self harm myself so i understand what you are going through. Send me a message if you ever need anything. I hope that this helped you.

I know, and a lot of people don't see it as an addiction but it totally is. One time and I was hooked.

Hey,

I know that Self-Harm is very addicting and tough to get out of, but you can do it. Slip-ups will happen, but when you slip-up, you should pick yourself up and continue on persevering. Do you have a support system in your life or someone that can help keep you accountable? If you don't, I suggest that you get someone. It can be a parent, a friend, a teacher, or someone here on TeenHelp. My Inbox is always open if you need anything.

When you feel the urge to Self-harm, you should try some alternatives. Here is a list of really great alternatives that you can use to overcome the urges. Click Me.

Good luck with your recovery. <3

Take care,
Kitty.

Thanks Strawberries haha Ill look at that, and try my best. Im working on it. I got myself a few friends, all trying to get out of it themselves. We have a system of breaking ur record. Mine is a week. (pretty pathetic right?) but im getting there. Ill break it on the 22nd hopefully i make it! heres hoping!

And Lola i know exactly what you mean. Im starting to see more of a light, like i can feel like its POSSIBLE to stop for good, which is a new feeling. And im going to try as hard as i can.


Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is SCARS
They don't see the ANGEL
Living in your heart
