4 Months Clean Then.... - January 11th 2012, 12:04 AM

Hi. I am Kaila. I am new here.
In the past year and a half I have been cutting.
But I stopped for four months and then recently right before christmas I started up again.
I stopped again for about a week then in the past 2 days I have literally cut myself 51 times on both of my arms.
I guess my post is just me looking for advise honestly...

Hey there!
Welcome to TeenHelp! And congratulations on going four months without cutting! It is a great achievement! And also congratulations on taking a step towards taking help. Creating a thread on here shows that you want to help yourself get through this which is awesome!
I am sorry that you are going through a hard time right now. Are you talking to a counselor about this? Cutting oneself up is a very drastic measure and definitely calls for talking to a professional and getting help. People on here can support you, be there for you but we are not professionals. Does anyone know that you Self Harm? Someone in your family or any friend?
What is the cause of your triggers?
You can use alternatives to distract yourself when you feel like cutting. Check out this thread-

All alternatives won't work for you. You have to find one that works for you after some trial and error.
If you need to talk, feel free to PM/VM me. Stay strong. Things will get better soon. <3
