I'm gonna cut. the only thing that would stop me is my fiance coming in. I'm done.

A computer once beat me at chess,
but it was no match for me at kickboxing!

I'm always here if you want to talk!

I urge you not to. Cutting doesn't help anything, and I know this through personal experience and that of others. Talk to some people here, or try the alternatives: http://www.teenhelp.org/alternatives

It may feel like it helpes you, but believe me, it doesn't. Try the HelpLINK or LiveHelp if you need some help, or even go into the chat room and ask for help. People are always willing to help you find a way to distract yourself, so don't cut, and talk to us instead.

PM me if you ever need to talk.

books, art, cinema, wine, and so onó

Hey there.

I honestly know it can be really hard to fight urges but you can do it. Just because its hard doesn't mean its impossible and I feel that part of you doesn't want to self harm which is why you are posting here. I want to make sure you know that you are stronger than self harm.

I really want to encourage you to take a look at the link to the alternativeness which Hollie has previously sent you. Not every single distraction out there will help you but there will be ones which do and you have to find them. Don't let them ones which don't help you set you back.

I know things are really hard for you right now but you're worth more than this. You really are.
