i don't know if i wanna quit :/ - April 4th 2011, 06:52 PM

i don't know if i wanna stop cutting. i know i should, but i've grown so used to doing it. everytime i get bored now i get so close to taking out my blade and cutting. i know i should distract myself but i just can't. i've tried so hard but the thoughts are always there in my mind. they're there practically 24/7.
i find it hard to keep it from my friends so i ended up telling 2 so far that i've relapsed. i told my second friend today and she completely freaked at me when i told her that i cut 9 times over the weekend. i ended up nearly laughing when she started hitting me because of it




and in that moment, I swear we were infinite

And we will never rest, 'til we're all fucking dead

love coco im always here




Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

Re: i don't know if i wanna quit :/ - April 4th 2011, 08:00 PM

hey coco
i did try to give up. i made it to a month and a day and then i just gave in. things were really bothering me at the time and i just couldn't cope without cutting.
since i've started cutting again, i've gotten so much worse. at first it was just the odd cut on my wrist (not deep enough to bleed) but now i'm making multiple cuts on my stomach (and they do bleed). i nearly passed out yesterday because of it.
i just don't know if i have the willpower to stop again.
thanks though

Hey Celine.

Do you want to know something? It's natural to be unsure about stopping. It's okay to have doubts, to be confused, to question it.

You've made it over a month without self harm before, and that shows you can do it. I think it's great you've gone so long, and it proves you can go that long again - or even longer.

I'm sure you're aware of how self harm can escalate, and become a bigger problem than you intended it to be. That's just how it works. You may think you have control over self harm, but this shows that, to some extent, it has control over you. Do you want it to be that way? Do you want to be reliant on an unhealthy coping mechanism? Or would you rather fight it off now, and work through it, and be a happier and stronger person?

As for why self harm isn't healthy - there's always the chance of infection, cutting too deep, it's obviously doing damage to your body, and not to mention all the negative feelings that come with it (shame, guilt, etc).

If you don't want to be self harming for the rest of your life, you're going to have to stop. And if that's the case, why not now? There's never going to be a perfect time to stop, so you may as well make the best of a bad situation and try now.

I know recovery is hard, and at times you'll want to give up. But you have to believe that you can do this. You have to trust that you'll get through this. You have to keep going, even when you feel like giving up, and know that something better is waiting on the other side.

Good luck.

hey
i completely agree with what you're saying. i think i was just having a down moment when i posted this.

one of my friends sat me down today and talked to me about it and asked if she could talk to our year head about it, so i said ok. so now with the help of my friends and my year head they're organising a meeting with my guidance councilor to help me.

Celine,

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. Recovery itself is a mix of ups and downs, and the fact that you were willing to reach out during one of the 'downs' is a good sign.

It sounds like you have some very caring friends there, and I'm glad they're able to help. It was so brave of you to accept their help, too - I know how hard it can be to accept help, even when it's offered right there in front of you, so you did a good thing.

Since you seem to be feeling better, and are happy with the responses, I'm going to close this thread. PM me if you disagree.
