I to am a self-harmer and have been since a very young age.. when i turned 18, i thought getting a tattoo on each wrist would help me stop, but it didnt, when i managed to stop cutting myself for 2 years, i used 2 elastic bands, and everytime i wanted to feel physical pain, i used to ping them really hard off my wrist, which gave me the same kind of relief as cutting myself did, and it worked.

I felt alright and stopped doing that, stopped pinging my wrists with elastic bands, and carried on with my life.. until november this year, my ex left me a week after i lost his baby, i took and overdose, and then i selfharmed the week after i got out of hospital.. by this point, i had completely forgotten about the whole ‘elastic band’ theory, until the hospital gave me a pack about selfharm and ways to cope, and the elastic bands were in this pack, and since then i have went back to that theory and i haven’t slefharmed again since i got them. Try doing that, and let me know if it helps, or you can draw a butterfly on each qwrist everytime you feel low, because when you look at the butterfly, you will think ‘who would harm a harmless creature’, and then you wont do it.. or draw a butterfly wherever you self-harm, most people like myself dont just choose to cut the wrist.

you have braved one big step and came on this website and asked for help, thats something that took me years to do!, hope everything goes well for you in the future and try and keep your head up, whether your male or female, your unique and beautiful in your own way.
