Replacement? - February 13th 2011, 07:22 AM

Lately I've been thinking...if I do stop cutting, what will I do instead? How will I be able to cope with things? It's the only thing I know how to do when I can't deal.

Try and find alternatives, you could try a new hobby? Such as writing or art. Anything you enjoy.
You can do it, stay strong and feel free to PM me if you want to talk :-)

Its really important to find something positive to replace cutting with. You don't want to switch to another self destructive behavior. Believe me, I've been there, done that.

This is exactly what I would say. Find something else to do, something you enjoy or even i it's just something that totally occupies your mind like school work or something. Also having someone you can talk to about what your thinking, feeling, going through can really help!
Even if it's just us motley crew here at TH! If you ever need to talk were here and I'm here so you ever need a chat you know where to find us!


Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you
And drugs cause cramp,
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful,
You might as well live.
