For a whole year I’ve been telling the person that I thought was my best friend about my battle with stopping SI. He helped me on several occasions when I was feeling the urges might win. But last night I talked to him and I think he’s planning on starting SI. I feel like it’s my fault that he wants to start self injuring. I tried to talk him out of it but he’s convinced that it’s ok to do it because I’ve done if for so long.

I don’t know how to convince him not to either, he won’t go to anyone for help. I thought about telling his parents but I don’t want to upset him so much so that he might seriously hurt himself. I don’t know what to do because he won’t listen when I tell him how much of a struggle it is to stop once you start.
