By Draco Malfoy,
Yes. I’m currently trying to stop. Although I’ve tried before, I feel that this time I may succeed… I’ve gone exactly a month without hurting myself and I’m feeling really good about it.\n\nI want to stop because I’m sick of feeling ashamed and alienated I guess. I don’t want to see scars all over my body anymore. I don’t want to live in fear that the people in my life will find out about what I do. I want to be healthy, and have healthy methods of coping.
