    It's like there's a voice telling me to do it. I'm fighting it all of the time and while I can be pretty good at keeping my distance from this other side of me, it's still constantly there, telling me that it is a good thing, that it helps me and that it's the only thing that can help me when it does none of those things. It's becoming like a craving for a food.

    Thank god for my willpower, but I feel like screaming.

    That's great that you have been able to resist and that you know it's not helping you. It's just a temporary release that becomes something you rely on, and in the long run you'll always carry reminders of those mistakes and everything you've been through.

    Stay strong. It's never easy.

    Screaming is Joyous!, if your not anywhere that you can scream write down how you feel on paper then throw it away it helps.
    Or punch a pillow to release tension, (I've also found throwing stuffed animals at the wall helps)
    Talk to somebody, like a counselor about your problems.
