    The way I stopped from SH is I just completely stopped doing it. People were starting to notice my cuts, and I didn't want anybody, to know about my SH, so I stopped. I also stopped because I knew it was going to get out of control quickly. I don't really recommend going cold turkey because it's really hard, and you're not solving the reason why you SH in the first place.

    When I almost relapsed a few months ago, I listened to music, and that really helped me to put the knife away.

    So my best recommendation is to listen to some of your favorite songs/bands to help you get the thoughts out of your head!
