    Realised i am bored.
    Nothing to stop my mind from wondering.
    Nothing to distract myself.
    And before i know i am cutting myself just for something to do.
    Its disgusting..

    is there anything else you like to do that you could turn to instead of cutting? when you find yourself starting to do it, stop. go for a walk? listen to music?

    Good ideas cuttle.

    I find that I am doing it because I am bored sometimes too. But I also do it when I am suicidal (like now) in order to keep death at bay. I like the ideas cuttle has given. They would be helpful.

    i would suggest taking up some kinda sport or extra activity. like art or learning a musical instrument. something to keep you busy and preoccupied

    Mmm, my psychiatrist suggested the same but i have plenty of hobbies.
    I play and own two guitars, and bass, i am a lead singer in a band, so i love music and have plenty to practice.
    i do commission art work (ie tattoo designs), i have two protfolios i need to sort out and i love just drawing so i am never short there.
    But i just cant seem to rely on them to distract my mind. I guess my addiction to self harming is always there in the back of my mind.
