    Does anyone ever want to stop an addiction?

    • When something becomes a part of your every day life, makes you who you are, why would you want to stop?

      This is a part of what makes you your own person.

      It took me a good while to stop and even then I haven’t stopped completely. I was so addicted that I carried a razor around with me. It turned into a need rather than a want. It made me feel calm and took all my worries away for a few hours until they came back then I’d reach for my best friend. My saviour. My hero. The only thing that could put a smile on my face and stop the tears.

      I don’t cut as much anymore but I still do a few times a month when things really get bad. Talking about it now gives me butterflies. I can almost feel the blood running through my veins screaming to be let out.

      Self harmers are not weak. They have just been strong for too long.

    Of course i want to stop SI, but when it becomes such a big part of your life that every underlying thought has to do with it, its hard to even imagine your life without it. More than anything i wish i had never started, rather than quit now. because honestly now, what makes me want to quit is not desire of my own but necessity of my life. I know i will kill myself if i allow myself to cut again, and the only thing keeping me caring about that is the love of those around me. love is the only thing i can imagine that could help an SI-er to stop. to want to stop.
