    I've been self harming since I was 12 years old... I'm now 19. Throughout that time I have tried to stop and failed many times and I've also developed many different ways to harm myself. I'm not going to say my methods, but lets just say that some of them aren't the "norm."

    Right now I really feel the need to self harm. I'm trying SO HARD to stop, but the temptation is overpowering me. I've tried all the distractions that have worked in the past and the temptation is still there. I don't think I will make it through tonight without self harming.

    Why is it so hard for me to be clean and scar free... why did I do this to myself?
