I have to say im not really sure how this site works.  But I was told that it might help me.

I have had a problem with self harm for several years now.  I am now 19 and at uni and really want to stop but some how I just cant.  I feel I need to self harm to get through hard times.  I have a boyfriend who really cares about me and it hurts him to see me do it to myself.  Other than him not many people know.

I have scars on various parts of my body and I hate them but I still add to them.  I havc tried different methods to try and stop, such as going for a run etc and uing an elastic band, but nothing seems the same. 

Does anyone have any alternatives?
