Re: I cant stop. I just cant. Help??

I know that when I first started quitting, I could only manage a few days at a time. Eventually, the periods without became longer than the periods with. I managed almost three years with only cutting like three times, but it is a struggle every single day. Its not like when you quit, suddenly the urges go away too.
I found, for myself, that if I could get myself past the worst part of wanting to do it, that I could usually just not do it. I kept my hands busy by clapping, or just rubbing my leg or the chair I was in until it passed, and I refused to be left alone when I was really wanting to, cause, like most people I absolutely will not do it if someone else is in the room.
I really hope this helps some, its a day to day thing, and its hard to quit!

S,

That's a step in the right direction.

Sometimes entertaining the most difficult things in life are necessary in order to progress....

If "baby steps" are necessary,then please make use of it.

Respectfully
Phoenix

Re: I cant stop. I just cant. Help??

i think its also important that you arent hard on yourself.. cutting is a very difficult thing to give up completely so i think any time period you are able to go without cutting, or hurting yourself in anyway, you should be proud of yourself for. I had gone three years without hurting myself until recently, which is a big let down for myself, but instead of being ridiculously disappointed in myself and taking it out on myself, i just told myself its ok and i just have to start again. Since I was able to go without cutting for a period of time before, I know its possible to do it again. Good luck with it though! Im here if you want to talk.

Re: I cant stop. I just cant. Help??

I am so glad to hear that you are doing better. That's awesome! The counseling will help, just give it time and as you and your counselor adjust to each other, you'll learn to trust them and before you know it you'll want them to know everything so they can help you fix it.

Take it easy on yourself okay? Like you said 1 day at a time. The only thing that matters is that you are getting better, and the person that you're doing that for is YOU, not anyone else.....so don't let anyone rush you or make you think you're not where you should be at any given point. You go at your rate.

I'm so glad you're working on this hun, you can stop, and I believe that you have the strength and willpower thats needed to do so. Anytime you need to talk, just let me know, I'll be here for you.

And I'm sorry about that wacky boat post, I think I mistakenly misposted to you, but was talking to someone else. Please just scratch that one.

take care and stay strong,

kat
