Cutting addicton?

Postby nikkibell » Mon Jul 08, 2019 7:53 pm

I feel like cutting is my addiction... I haven't cut in a little over 3 months and have been having really bad urges to do so lately....i feel like no one i know understands even though they want to help. I guess I'm looking for maybe a self harm "sponsor"? Like they do at AA meetings? someone or a group i can go to in crisis and just say "I need a meeting" and have someone to talk to. idk...its just something i was thinking of that could benefit a lot of us

That is what we're here for- peer support. We have a how you're feeling thread, and a crisis thread- in addition to any threads you make.

I don't know if there is any kind of self harm anonymous, or not- like AA, GA, NA, etc. The nature of this forum, we're limited to forum and instant messages (forum privacy/anonymity rules would prohibit sharing Skype, Discord, etc)

Three months is pretty good- what do you think is causing this increased urge? Extra stress going on in your life atm?

Sounds as if that might be what's triggering it.

I mostly have my self-harm under control but sometimes it's just too tempting if extra stress is on me. Even if it's not something extreme.
