like an addiction? - October 31st 2011, 03:10 AM

Ok, so like after 4 months of no slef harm, I've realapsed. And I didn't want to do it, but I felt like I had to. It seems to me like cutting is an addiction. Any advice???

It is an addiction.
I relapsed after 8 months and haven't really been able to stop.
All i can say is try REALLY hard not to relapse again because i know for me every time makes me crave it even more.
Stay strong, love. xox

Because it is an addiction.
It's okay,
everyone does it every once in awhile.
I haven't SH in 7 months then one day just felt like I had to.

A beautiful thing is never perfect.

Like an addiction you may even have a version of "withdrawal syndrome"

It's like an addiction for most people. I have tried to be SH free for the past 5 years. I'm not going to lie to you and say that I haven't slipped, because I have. alot. but I have pushed forward and have seeked help and now I tell someone I have slipped, just so I have someone that can keep their eye on me incase I continue to harm myself. Maybe that's what you need. If you have anyone you can confide in, do so.

You gotta learn to live, laugh, and love. Especially live, even though sometimes it's the hardest thing to do.

It is an addiction. I was clean for a year and a half then started again. A lot of us struggle with that addiction...your not alone. I was clean for so long I thought but now...now I'm still cutting and I'm still as bad as I was...

I'm a poet, screaming for attention.
A singer, itching for an audience.
An actor, searching for her stage.
Don't you hear me?
Screaming for the one missing all the signs.
Why must I work so hard?!
To show you I'm dying inside?
