    Hi, I'm currently a university student. I joined this forum because I've been struggling with urges to self-harm.

    Hi there, I certainly know the feeling, I gave into self harm the other day and cut myself. You need to keep distracting yourself, watch some inspirational videos on youtube. Rub ice on your arm can work too. There's a list of distractions in the self harm forum. I do hope you can hold off the urges to the best of your ability. What do you think could stop you from giving into this?

    I think it's a stress related thing.

    Hi Kcho, you've come to a good place, there's a lot of people here, myself included who struggle with self harming urges. Nobody judges here and there will always be at least one person on this site who can relate to someone else's personal struggles and everybody understands being in a hopeless place. Never hesistate to ask for help here if you want someone to talk you out of self harming or just want to talk:)
