You have to try and distract yourself from the topic. if you're just thinking about it, try to get yourself busy with something else. Go out with some friends, go hang at the park, pick up a hobby. The urge to cut only lasts a few minutes so try to distract yourself. Keep fighting it.
hang in there.
I know what you mean.. I can't stop thinking about it. I am 13 and just started cutting last month.. and I can't stop! I haven't cut for a week now because I am trying to stop. Maybe uh.. write a story? Or draw? It might take your mind off of things.
talk to someone.
phone a friend just get youself or your mindstate out the cutting idea.
i was just like you, id suddenly just get this urge to cut and i couldnt stop thinking about it. i use to just be lying in my bed then suddenly i found my self thinking of where to cut next.
I see where you are coming from with the pictures and stories, i use to write songs and play piano but after a while it got so repetitive it stopped keeping my mind off cutting. it sucked...
but if you need someone to talk to im here!
I HAVE BEEN CUTTING FOR ABOUT 4 MONTHS NOW... i have a craving for it every time i get upset or mad.. i have had a lot of depression.. i lost my 28 year old brother last febuary, he was found hanging in a tree. was said to b suicide never actually proven. then in december i lost my heart and soul to cancer, my daddy.. every since then i feel i have got worse i cant say how long i have fought depression, but now its going too far, but when i cut it all goes away the pain stops. i do it so i do so i dont take it out on my kids or boyfriend.. i also feel unwanted never good enough, ive always been told im impossible to make happy:( overall im just sad
