    Hugs. Don't beat yourself up for giving in. Keep distracting.

    Hey, we all have little setbacks and thats all it is, a setback. Its not a full blown return to former ways. So as RCG says, dont beat yourself up over it. If we all did that, the hospitals would be full to bursting with suicidal maniacs who had all beat themselves up for having bad thoughts!

    My key worker told me about setbacks. A lot of people call it a crash. Man, when I crashed it was a freakin train wreck as it was something I had never experienced before and I was lethal to myself over it. But now I know what it is and why it happens and I am learning to cope with them better. I dont kick the crap out of myself because I crash or have some suicidal thoughts, which of course I still do.

    Don't beat yourself up. It happens and you are only human. You know how many times I've "quit" smoking in the past month? I know it's not the same but still harmful nonetheless. Try your best to distract yourself. Is there a close friend or family member you can go to when you feel like SH who can talk you down or distract you?
