Why did you eventually stop? And if you had emotional troubles in the future would you start again?
Thanks
I stopped about four months ago, mostly becuase my best mate, who means the world to me said, if you dont stop cutting your self i will not talk to you ever again, though in return she has been the best friend i could ever ask for and has been unbelieveably supportive.
If i had emotional troubles in the future i may well start again. I was very close to that point last night as a matter of fact.

I thought last night was good - judging by the other thread! Sounds like your mate made a good call there - only you know how much you owe her. Interrogation over! - can't think of anything else, except perhaps what I or anyone should do if we realise someone is SHing, should we say/do anything? Or maybe only if we're close like you and your mate were?

Last night was not good, I had come back from oxford and my aforementioned mate who stopped me SH sent a txt to me that i took as saying that i was a waste of her time. i got kinda upset about that.

If you think someone is S/H there is not much you can do. Just try to talk to them about their pain, understand if they really do not want to talk about it. Just do not prejudge and offer all the support you can. It was the unconditional support that I got which saved me, knowing that someone cares about you really can help.

Thanks for your patience. I hope it all turns out well with the Oxford girl and your mate. Not all us Oxford people are stuck up and snobby btw, though there are some..

i self-harmed for about 5/6 years. it's sort of ongoing really tho i haven't done it sicnce september last year.

i know its a maladaptive coping stratergy but at times when im down its very tempting to revert back to my old coping mechanism.

self-injury is a tricky one, but if anyone wants to talk about it then please PM me

its weird because i never once self-harmed with a sharp object because i'm afraid of the pain.

Both really. But I certainly would never be able to self-mutilate, and am thankful that I have lead a life such that I never had to worry about it.

im sorry but how can cutting your self be addictive and fun to do? I just dont see the excitement in torturing myself...

some of my old freinds used to do it...can anyone shed some light over this issue?

I said that too. But there came a point where I just couldn't take any more and it was either cutting or suicide, and I didn't have the guts to do that.

Suicide I dont have a problem with. My only worry would be distress to family.

It can be addictive because causing physical pain can distract from the emotional pain. I never found it fun..that would be odd. But it was addictive at times.
