    So I've been self harming for the past month or two.

    Up until recently I've only been cutting in places that can't be seen.

    But, now it's getting hard and harder to resist it and I've been cutting my wrists and forearms, along with a failed suicide attempt slice at the wrists.

    It's only a matter of time until I get caught.

    Now I really don't need the stigma of that happening, with all the attention and prodding from family and therapists.

    So I think I should probably find a way to stop...

    Does anyone have any advice on how I can stop this once and for all? I'm really confused here...

    Distraction techniques haven't really been working.

    I don't know if I can just stop by myself, but I really don't think it would be wise to tell my therapist.

    Has anybody told their therapists and if so how did they react?

    Distraction doesnt help, but somthing along the lines can help.

    try putting an elastic band around your wrist and snapping that so it stings when you feel like cutting, I found it can help somtimes

    The problem is it's not just the pain I need, I have to see the blood.

    I only really get something out of it if I can watch the blood flow.

    I'll still try that, though.

    Try pouring out red food coloring or some sort of red liquid in the sink or whatever? I've never personally tried it, but I saw it on something once.
