Smile quitting cutting. - August 14th 2013, 02:58 PM

So I've decided a gew days ago to go for 72 hours without cutting, and I made it 88 hours so far! It feels so freeing not cutting
I'm going to try for 15 days, and if I make it that far I'm going to buy myself a computer and a $200 starbucks gift card. :3

I think this is a great goal - and you know aswell as I do that it will be a extremely challenging one. The main thing you need to do is be able to channel your thoughts on the starbucks & new computer you are going to get. If you focus all your energy on that; and not on self harm (which again, will be hard), you will find that 15 days will come alot faster!

You can do this - but only if your truly believe you can!


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

You can do this, Jacob. I'm sorry to hear you cut again after going four days without doing it.

Stay strong and think about those rewards you've promised yourself!

Sorry to hear you ended up cutting but do not let that stop you from keeping up with this goal.
Set the Starbucks as the goal for fifteen days and then the computer as maybe thirty?
That way you have two goals to aim for.
You can do this!

This is absolutely brilliant, well done. Remember we all have slip ups and now that you know you've gone this long you'll be able to do it again. I'll be four years and six months free in two days time and take it from me - it gets much much easier as time goes on. Stay strong. x
