    i started to cut about 5 years ago, but stopped after 2 years or so.

    and recently ive started again. and ive totally become addicted to it.

    but then i decided to try using an elastic band on my wrist, so i get pain from that without causing actual physical harm to myself.

    all is going well. i was using it and feeling fine.

    but as soon as one thing happens that sends my anxiety slightly higher, im wanting to cut again. and i cant get that thought off my mind until ive done it.

    grrr. i hate my mind.

    You were able to stop once and you can do it again. It is a very difficult thing to deal with the desire to SH. Please do not lose hope in your situation. Give yourself credit for being stronger than the addiction. :hug:
