I've self harmed for 6 years, i started as small scratches underneith a sweatband and has progressed to both my arms and my legs. i self harm every day, and i can't stop. It's become a huge part of my life, i think about it about 30% of the time everyday. If im not doing it, im thinking about it. I feel like its an addiction, ive read that it's now classed as an addiction but how do you break free from an addiction that cant be treated with medication or rehab. How do you stop doing something which i've grown to love and i feels like it loves me back. it sounds so sick and i really dont want to be judged i just wondered weather anyone else felt the same about their self harm.
