Re: ....9 days.... - March 9th 2009, 05:26 AM

Hey Brooke,

9 days is a huge achievement, it's something to really be proud of yourself for. Going any length of time without self-harm is amazing because fighting isn't easy. No matter what happens, you're nine days stronger than you were before. Nothing, no amount of slip-ups, will ever be able to take those nine days away from you.

Why do you think you're going to slip up? When it comes down to it, isn't this urge just like any other urge? Urges can be fought, and urges can be beaten. Keep your hands and your mind busy and off self harm, keep yourself occupied and away from sharp tools you could use to hurt yourself with.

Keep telling yourself you can fight through this urge. Tell yourself over and over if you have to, keep telling yourself until you believe you can get through this urge. Hang in there and let me know if you want to talk about anything, take care of yourself.



how could anyone ever tell you, you are anything less than beautiful?| PM Me

I totally agree. I remember when I was in your position if I went 9 days with out SH then I was getting better. You're going to get through it even if you have days where you slip up. 9 days is fantastic.

Hey I agree, aswell. 9 days is a big accomplishment and you should be proud. If you feel that you're going to slip, do something to distract yourself. Listening to music or writing poetry help. Hang in there.

Hey Brooke,
I think you are doing really well to have gone 9 days without self harm! You can fight the urges and don't have to give in. I understand how hard it can be though to get through and not give in when you have such strong urges to self harm and all you want to do is self harm. But try and look past the urge and realise that it will go eventually and what you have to focus on is getting past the urge. You have been really strong to have gone 9 days and you can make it 10 days! Do you know what is making you want to self harm? It can help to talk it through, because it helps to make sense of things and maybe see things differently. I am here if you ever do want to talk so you are more than welcome to PM me. Keep holding on :-)

Soon you will have one month, then six, then a year. Baby steps...
I cant stay away from the cigarettes myself, and it hurts me.
