Nearly 6 months

I've been trying to stop SI for a few years now. I knew it would be hard when I finally decided I wanted to stop, but I didn't know just how difficult it would be. I wasn't prepared for it. So I had many slip-ups. Finally I realized stopping wasn't about stopping the urges to SI, but about not cutting in spite of the urges to do it. Awareness is such a huge factor. Realizing what triggers me and when I'm being triggered at the moment it happens was so important. Of course, the hardest part is being able to make myself find alternative coping methods in the moment. It's easy to think of alternatives and say I'll do it, but actually making myself do it is different. It's taken a while, but I've gone nearly 6 months without cutting now! I can't say I'll never do it again because I don't know what each day will bring. I hate to be cliche, but all any of us can do is take it one day at a time.

Congratulations and well done! You are so right when you say how awareness is important. Its such a huge step to feel the urges and yet refuse to give into them.

Six months is amazing, you should be very proud of yourself.
Keep up the good work. :)

Wow, I'd love to make it to six months.
This is pretty much all I have to say:

All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

Was there a "hardest time" in those six months?
