    I guess it would help to pinpoint your triggers, once you pinpoint your triggers you have more chance of gaining the control. Is there any way to stop yourself from being put in the situation where you feel like hurting yourself (a way to get away from the trigger)? You could think into the future, and if you do get triggered or feel an urge to self arm again, what could you do to distract yourself?

    It's a difficult challenge but one that is possible.

    You could set yourself a goal and when you reach the goal treat yourself to something you enjoy.

    Here's two threads about distractions, hopefully they'll be of some help:

    Try and work out why you're cutting so often.
    When you feel like you want to cut, try and distracxt yourself. Write or draw or do a hobby.
    Has anything happened recently to cause this or has it been a steady build up over a period of time?
