I enjoy it :| - May 20th 2011, 04:16 PM

Um..I hadn't sh for a while, but it's becoming frequent again, and I've realised... that I actually enjoy doing it!! It's horrible, but if anyone tried to make me stop it I'd probably keep on doing it. Is this attention-seeking (because I hate attention seeking) or is there something wrong with me, or am I just being stupid? :/

Firstly you are definalty not being stupid....

It sounds like you are addicted, seeming as you would keep doing it even if someone told you to stop....
If someone knows already or finds out and asks you to stop, don't feel bad if you can't ,like any addiction stopping and recovering takes time...you have to be ready to stop and want to stop first....

Also you are not crazy...you have found a coping mechanism to deal with life....what I would encourage you to do is tell someone preferible a teacher, family memeber or another adult you trust...they can help you got a doctors appointment and then your doctor will be able to refer you to a local counselling service that can help you find the reasons why you are hurting yourself and help you come up with steps you can take when you get an urge, with some healthy coping mechanisms....

This process takes time, but just remember people (like us on here) will support and encourage you along the road to recovery.

Stay strong I hope what I have suggested makes sense and helps

"Casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2

hey, i know how you feel. I was clean for a year and just started cutting again this week. It felt amazing, not gonna lie i enjoyed it very much. But you need to understand its not a good thing. My bf made me promise i would try to stop again before i got heavily addicted to it. It sounds to me that you may be addicted now. Hav u ever tried using the alternitives this site suggests instead of cutting? i know at least 2 of em help me. Well I dont think you're crazy, if thats any help to you.

"One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering." -Ida Scott Taylor
