    Finding it hard to deal with the urges to self-harm. I want to give-in and just let my life drift out of my hands.

    I can relate to how you feel the urge to self harm when things just don't seem to be right. For me, I don't have any distraction method or anything healthy to prevent myself from cutting. All I have was my own clean streak. The longer the period you didn't self harm, the more you wouldn't want to destroy that clean streak. Well, maybe this reply isn't gonna help in anyway but do remember there are people here to help and to listen. :)

    I always have urges, and sometimes just can't help myself. I can't remember what kept me from doing it before. I think the longest time I've gone without was 6 months? That was a long time ago though. I would love to hear more advice from people.
