I just wanted to give an inspirational post to you. Today marks 100 days without cutting for me. I wanted to share this to let you know that it IS possible to stop self harming. It's hard at first, I won't lie, but as time goes on the urges get less and less. They don't completely go away but when they come you use the positive coping mechanisms that you've learnt along the way. It's like an addiction, you are always going to be an addict through your life and you don't recover you are in recovery. For an example, alcoholics who haven't touched a drink for 8 years still refer to themselves as "recovering alcholic". It's the same with SH, I say I am a recovering self-harmer. Anyway, back to the point, if I can make it to 100 days you can too! Believe in yourself!
