    I wish people would understand

    that you can't promise to not self harm, as it is impossible it's an addiction that I can't get myself out off. Sometimes I don't know what even happens but I have a need so strong to cut nothing else helps. There's no feeling like it I'm not brave enough to take my life...

    I can't take it anymore.

    My best friend is making my life miserable. All she talks about is self harm and suicide. I'm trying to get better and stay clean and she's making it really hard because everything she says is triggering.

    It only started a little

    while ago, but I'm already stuck. It originally started about a year ago and lasted for a month. It wasn't much then, and it still isn't. Back then it was just rubbing a pair of tweezers against my skin until I couldn't take it any longer. I didn't know what it was then. Now it...

    It's gotten to the point

    where cutting doesn't even bother me anymore. Now I burn. I have a lighter and a fork hidden in my room and like I just finished doing, I light the prongs of the fork until they are scorching hot and then press them into my skin.

    After almost a month

    and a few weeks clean, i couldn't take it and fell back into it. I remember back when i thought cutting was so weird, and how could it possibly be addicting? But for past few years i realized its an addiction like any other. And its hard to quit.

    I have good days and bad days.

    Today would be the latter. I really want to cut but cigarette burns are easier and less noticeable. I hate just laying here overthinking. Kill me.
