Don't stress over this. It's normal to slip, especially when you're going through a rough time. It's great that you managed to stop for a while though! Keep trying. It's not going to stop all at once, it will take some time. Try to find other ways to cope. You can get through this. PM me if you ever want to talk.

Hey there. First, welcome to TH. Second, it's great that you've been trying to give up self harm, and it takes a lot of strength just to go for a whole week without it. And with how hard it really is, it's completely normal and natural to slip up once in awhile. Even people who haven't self harmed in years might even get urges sometimes - it's all about ignoring them, and trying to cope in another way, in a better way. I know that it seems like there is none at times, but is self harm really worth it? You bleed, you feel some pain, and then what? You wake up the next morning and you still feel like shit, because you let yourself slip up. Just remind yourself how good it feels when you realize it's been a whole week, the next time you want to cut. Imagine how proud your family and friends will/would be. And remember cutting doesn't make everything go away, it really doesn't. Next time you feel like hurting yourself, maybe even come on to TH for awhile and check out the distractions thread, or PM someone and try to get your mind off of things. You CAN do this, even if you had one little slip up. In about a year from now, you're still going to be self harm free, and you're going to look back and remember how much strength it took, but how worth it the whole thing really was. I promise Hang in there, and stay strong. One little slip up, don't let it set you back. xx
