I try and make it as difficult as possible for me to SH. At this stage I could never throw away my blades but I try to hide them/ lock them away so it takes a while to get them out. It's a small step and I'm very early in my recovery but it is actually surprisingly effective because it gives me time to think about the consequences of my SH- usually my urges decrease with time

i have a list to complete before i allow myself to think of SH

1. wait 10 mins. if i still want to SH, go onto step 2

2. surround myself with as many people as possible for 30 mins. this will stop me from SH as i am in public. i can go for a walk or sit with friends and family

3. draw on myself with a soft permanent marker. once this image has faded fully (normally takes a few days) then i am allowed to think about SH (but not do anything, just think)

4. if, after all these steps, i still want to SH, i contact a listener on a site called 7cups (who actually recommended me this site). they will help me ground myself and give me more options

i am currently a week, today, of not SH and i really want to make it at least a month. my record so far is a year.
