    Try to distract yourself. Do you write, draw, paint, play an instrument? Any favorite books handy? You can stay here and talk with us, too. What triggered you?

    I'm sorry. :( You've gone some time without cutting, though, which shows you don't need it. You've already taken a big step. Even if it's been hours, that shows self-restraint, and you came here for advice.

    Do chat rooms distract you? I'd go into the chat here with you if you'd like. I haven't been in there much, but if people are as nice and helpful as they are on the forums, I'm sure the chat is much the same. :)

    My brother wants me to visit him soon, so I can't stay in there long, but I'll come in for a little. We can be shy together. :)
