    Many of my friends have told me this. Ever since last summer I've had plans to stop. I went 3 weeks last year. But now its hit me. It's not that I should stop, It's that I have to.
    I'm just wondering if anyone else feels this way, or has managed to stop and has advice on doing it, or is trying and wants someone to talk to.
    If so, pm me, or reply or somehow contact me.

    well done for having three weeks without self-harm, it can be a tough habit to break.

    from my experience, i thought i broke the habit because i stopped for some time but recently some thing triggered me i was back to self-harming. so in my opinion if i really want to stop i have to honestly answer questions about why i do it and what do i achieve and how does it make me feel in the long run and find distractions/alternatives that I think may be helpful

    if you are ready to stop i hope you all the best and good luck :)

    good luck

    Cutting gets so addicting. 3 weeks is a good achievment, though, and I know you can do it again. I'm here if you want to talk. Take care of yourself. I know you can beat this. PM anytime. :hug:

    I get phases with that sort of thing. So I went through a week a few weeks back where I was doing it practically every day and felt damn fucking good about it. I was addicted to it, in fact I was getting jittery at college because I was going without my harming fix.

    After a week the phase ended and I kinda regret doing it. You can still just faintly see the scars on my arm but they're almost gone. Somedays I regret it more than most and some days I don't give shit and could quite happily do it again.
