    Hey everybody

    Maybe I'm too optimistic at the moment, but I think I have to:unsure:

    Tonight (in the netherlands about 9,5 hours) the new year will start... And I think it'll be a VERY good start to try to stop the cutting:smile:

    And maybe you think: pfff I'm always trying to stop the cutting, so why would I try it again, or why would I stop now...
    I don't know...
    But maybe when there are more people who wants to stop, and who support the others, we can do it:smile:

    I wish everybody a great, happy and healty new year, WITHOUT cutting, depression, lonelyness, etc.

    Come on, let's try, you can do it!:hug:

    I like optimism :smile:

    Count me in..in a way, although last time i tried stopping with someone was not so great. But I'm more ready now, I think, recent slip up aside...:smile: Anyway, what can be wrong with trying, as long as you don't put too much pressure on yourself and accept slip ups might happen. And hey, one of my new yrs resolutions is to be more optimistic :smile: (And another was to stop SI so there you go).

    Good luck to you. Happy new year. :biggrin:

    One day at a time, and celebrate each day as a victory. If it happens that a fall should take place, then remember the times you were strong and did not fall. Pick yourself up and start anew. I have faith in each and everyone of you. You can do this, and having others support you in the effort is wonderful. Now if I could only believe in myself .........

    Well, it feels like i haven't cut for 3 weeks or something, but it's just 3 days:dry: But I haven't still cut in the new year:yeah: The urge is harder then I thought... I'm thinking about it all day long, that makes me tired...
    But THIS is the moment I have most chance that i can do it, because of the new year... It's the best reason I can think of... I hope it'll be easier after a couple of days...
    Good luck everybody:hug:
