This has been weighing on my mind a lot lately because both of my therapists have told me that in the future they hope that they can help me stop self-harming all together. When I think about it I don't know what else to do with myself to cope besides self-harm because it's always been a constant in my life. I've been self-harming since I was 12 years old (I'm 22 now), what else can I do to help myself cope with extreme emotions? I frequently have anxiety attacks and break down a lot, and that's usually when I start cutting, hitting, biting, etc. myself. Physical pain has always helped me get over emotional pain effectively, I'm just at a loss as to what to do with my emotions without self-harm. Has anyone on here overcome their addiction to self-harming? What methods do you use that have helped you?
