It's a method of replacement. You have lost one coping mechanism and by the sounds of it you haven't been advised on or able to find healthier ones, so you turn back to what you know to cope but in a different form. You also said you've been forced to stop, but you should know that this is still self harm. As for if it's 'normal,' I would say this is the wrong word to describe it considering the nature of the situation. I would however say that it's probably common.

If you spoke to other people the way you speak to yourself, how many friends would you have?
Be kind to yourself.
You're only human.
