I haven’t self harmed in over a month now but lately it’s been very difficult to not do it again, for me it gets out the anger I have (at myself 99% if the time) quickly. So it’s a very tempting solution to cope with any mistakes I make, and it’s getting harder to resist

Chest pain

Irritability and Anger

Self-inflicted injury

Suicidal ideation

Mood swings

    Hey, have you tried out the app "I am Sober"? It's really good. You can pick selfharm as one of the addictions. I've been clean of sh for almost 8 months. It was hard everyday in the beginning, but it's getting a bit easier. The app helps.

      yeah I’ve got it ! It’s really nice to have a place to talk about it, and know you aren’t alone, it has definitely helped me

    I know how you feel. I used to self harm to make a place on me hurt bad enough that it overcame the pain inside. I have very painful depression and I too want to SH at times still, but then I remember what I put my family through when I was institutionalized the last time. I can't do that to them again.
