    Okay, so I know we have a thread regarding the last time we self-harmed. I thought we could put a positive spin on it and also have a thread where we post how long it's been since we self-harmed. Just so we can root for one another and celebrate our successes, no matter how big or small.

    I'll start.

    For me, it's been 3 days.

    I last.... when Gone In 60 Seconds was playing in the theater. So that's been I guess 8 or 9 years. I only done it about 10 times in my life, and it was a means to keep me grounded.

    This is such a good idea for a thread :) looking at the positive side not the negative.

    I've been SH free for 5 days now... Hopefully this good streak will last.

    I just wanna say congrats to everyone who made it this far without self-harming. Inflicting harm and punishment on yourself to escape the pain and inner turmoil on the inside never works. Physical pain may seem easier to deal with but the healing has to come from within. Your human;as we all are. No one is perfect and life is a trial and error process.
    Overcoming/overpowering these urges is a big deal, and you all should be very encouraged that you can do this! Keep on keeping on! You have many who are in your corner! :hug:

    2 weeks. I can't believe I can go this long. This is the time I think I'm stopping for good.

    3 months since I last cut myself.. though I've technically been biting my fingers and punching myself (light to medium strength) so I don't know if it counts..
