Unhappy Relapse after a year? - March 21st 2012, 12:48 AM

Hello everyone.
First off, I'd like to say that I'm new to this site.

I've been on and off harming since I was 12. Now, nearly 20, I'm still fighting it.
I stopped cutting for a year and was so proud of myself. BUT the only reason I stopped was because it really hurt my bf, to the point where he started to cut again, to show me the pain.
Well, life did its thing, we broke up, but I kept my promise to him, because he meant that much.
Now, Im having urges again, and I dont know what will hold me back, because we're not together and we havent talked or anything so its like I have 'no one' in a sense, to not cut for.

I dont want to fall again, but I dont really see a point in holding on to a promise of something that ended :/

You should make a promise to yourself that you won't cut. Maybe you should try to contact him again if you think that would help.

To stop cutting, you must stop for yourself. You will need to love and respect yourself.

It's been said before SH is a symptom of problem not the cause. Address the cause and cope with it a different way. Check out the alternatives thread (I can't link to it yet but a search will find it.)

Find within yourself a reason to not SH and don't let yourself down. No one will be more disappointed than you if you fail yourself.
