    How can I stop myself? I know it's wrong and bad but I'm so close to saying screw it, i'm just going to do it.

    Distractions are key. Do something that will distract you from your feelings.

    Physical exercise, art, writing, knitting, going for a walk, etc.

    If you must, snap rubber bands. But I think there's a great list of distractions under one of the stickies on this forum...

    Distractions definitely helps, but it's difficult being distracted all the time.
