Anonymous asked: Hi! I hope you're having a good day. So, I would really like to stop cutting. My partner hates it but thankfully it doesn't affect our relationship. I've tried to for years but I always come back to it. It makes me feel good, but I know it's no good.
Its good that you know its not good, that’s the first step I think. Probably the best way to stop cutting is to distract yourself when you get the urge to do so. If you get those urges, just go do something like exercise, or maybe out for a walk to grab a coffee, or watching something funny like comedy, etc. Also, go to your partner when you get the urge. Let him/her comfort you and distract you.
