    I'm getting strong SI urges at the moment, my brain's going at several hundred miles an hour and I need someone to tell me not to SI.

    Sorry I'm wasting everyone's time and wasting some of the forum's space by posting this.

    Only you can be the one to stop yourself. Our words can only do so much in the way of persuasion. Ultimately it sits with you. If you are struggling against the urges of doing something, then set yourself a goal. and set yourself a reward for achieving that goal. So set yourself a target to be free for lets say, 3 hours. and at the end of it, treat yourself to a chocolate bar, or something nice. Then when that target is reached, double it, set one for 6 hours, and do the same. and if you fall back, start from scratch with the begining time of 3 hours.

    The more you fight against it, the easier it becomes, and the less likely you will have urges to fight.
