In the past year, I have been to hell and back struggling with SI as well as with other addictions. It is interesting for me to look back on my last entry on the SAFE Alternatives blog, dated June 30th of last year, if anyone is interested. SI was just beginning to be a huge problem; I was SIing in public places with tools I found on the ground. Just as commenter Cassandra warned me, SI got out of control when I went to college. I did not fully stop hurting myself until January of 2009.

My problem now is that I miss it terribly. I feel sad that SI has lost its power over me because I remember how much it helped in the moment. Then I look at my scars and want to injure…this is really difficult and I would love some support. Thank you.
