    :hug: I can understand your frustrations. It varies for different people. Some go a few days, others go a few weeks, some go months whereas others can go years. It's all down to determination and willpower, I think. It is so easy to fall back into self harm, I've been there many a time and I went about 6 months without self harming. So disapointed with myself and angry but the thing is, you should be pleased with yourself for not self harming for a while. You didn't cut for a month, so you know you can do it.

    Wipe this off as a mistake and try not to beat yourself up over it. Next time, aim for longer. You can do it. When you felt the urge to hurt yourself but you didn't within this last month, what did you do instead? I mean, distractions?
