    You knew I’d fall in love with you the from

    the very first day when you eliminated my sadness and numbed all my pain. You gave me the confidence that before you I lacked but deprived me of things that I'll never get back. The whole time I believed you were harmless and fun; I was blinded of the damage you truly had done...

    I thought I was in the clear: ten months

    without using prescription pain pills and eight months without drinking. I didn't think I would revert back to my old ways, but I did. I'm now back to square one, and I don't know if I can stay clean anymore.

    5 months. I was so proud.

    :( Today wasn't even an especially bad day I just couldn't stop myself. I had a feeling I was going to cut again I got the blades days before I did it. I feel like such a failure... I have PE on Thursday it's gonna be so hard to hide them :(

    Oh god it's been ages

    since I've done anything and I've been so proud of myself I even somehow stopped myself when things got really bad, but now something that really shouldn't affect me much just pushed me over the edge and now I feel so emotionless and I can't find a reason to hold on.

    Well the other day I relapsed

    for the first time in a month. I was doing so well. It was so bad. I feel like im going down hill again. I have so much going on I can't seem to cope with. Everything in my life is messing up. I don't know how much longer I can fight this. I feel like giving up with life.

    On March 7th, 2015 I got my year back off Meth.

    but I've been drinking here and there. I don't get drunk like I used. I socially drink. Is this considered not being sober!? What do you guys think!?

    A couple weeks ago I had a relapse in cutting.

    I don't know why, I mean life was't too bad. I just spent $200 on a shock collar for my dog, and he chewed up the remote... and I was devastated because my father said he'd watch the dog and he didn't, he left him alone so he could work on his car. I cut that night and had to...

    I relapsed again Saturday night,

    I was thinking about doing it for so long. I craved it, and it just kind of happened. I feel much better now after I did it, hopefully I'll make it longer next time. Summer is coming and I don't need more scars/cuts on my legs!

    Held the cutting urge

    for a good while before a person I hate walked into my family's life again, just when I was happy we were finally rid of him. Recently relapsed and don't feel like I'll hold it the urges for more that a few hours at a time now.

    Relapse

    I've been battling these feelings off and on for eight years now. Sometimes it's months in between them, but the longer in between, the worse it feels when it returns. This weekend my ex came to visit, and it affected me so much more than I ever thought it would, I ended up...

    I am a chronic relapser.

    I have relapsed so many times I've lost count. The worst part is that once you have a foundation of recovery and you've been through the same horrible experience of getting fvcked up for a while, really enjoying it at first, then doing it a bit more often than you know you...

    Should I Feel Bad!?

    Long story short, I first tried crystal Meth with my two older brothers and my sister-in-law. That was about 5 years ago. We used to tweak every day. Thought we had it all under control but eventually things got ugly in a blink of an eye. So my oldest brother and his girl moved...

    for my recovery. I don't have the energy to go through with it. I do have the energy to wake up early in the mornings and work out for 2/3 hours though.

    after almost 2 years clean from my eating disorders, i relapsed. I lost 10lbs in 2-3 weeks... I feel like my depression is taking control of me again and i almost cut again a few days ago after a year clean... I don't know what's going on, and that scares me..

    Yesterday at 10:30 pm,

    I started cutting again. God, it feels and felt so good. All the pent up anger, stress, pain, and sadness just came out. And I feel safer - more secure. The last time I cut was four years ago. I haven't done it in a while and it wasn't planned to start up again - but damn it, I...
