I've been a cutter for almost 4 years now. I had a really bad episode about a month or so ago and I was shocked at the results - how it all ended. I noticed I can't be doing this anymore. Even if I could continue to do it in places I could hide. But I quit. I went crying to my mom the next day telling her about it. All theses years, I think she had an idea but she didn't really understand. She was angry but she had another thing on her mind that made her cry too. So, that next day, I vowed never to cut. However, the urges are still there and it's a damn pain to try and not give in. Since then, i've tried other things to calm the urges but they've all ended up being just as self-destructive (snorting pills, bruising, and i've even had thoughts of bringing up cigarette smoking but I quit 2 years ago.. and it's hard.. I don't want to start again). So, my question to you all is - has anyone else tried to quit? Was it a successful quit or did you decide to continue? Has anyone else had urges too?
