You can stop chemically self harming yourself by stop dumping things on your skin related to beauty products or cleaning products. If you are a person who like to bleach, and dye your hair you should stop purchasing those materials, you are harming your hair. Another thing is nail polish, if you are a person who also likes to paint your nails you can discard those materials too, we also use nail polish remover and that can also affect our skin. Our skin absorbs those chemicals. Plus, another thing is don't drink beverages such as alcohol. Try to stay healthy by eating healthy and exercising. I hope this helps!
Talk to your family and friends. Look at yourself and know that you are harming the best gift the universe has given you. You only have one self, take care of it. :)
chemically, you mean substance right? First the chemical you use should be put in a place where you cannot see or hidden. if it possible you can throw it away and think of it as not helpful as you think. It is in your mind if you help yourself and willing you can easily do this if not talk to me if you can :)
You have to want to stop before you can actually stop. Self-harm isnt something you should do though, think of the possible outcomes.
The first step is admitting the problem. The second step is to seek help. Talk to a family member, such as a mother or father if you're underage and ask them to take you to a specialist. That is where you learn how to cope with your feelings and burdens. There are of course short term methods you can look up, but they'll never end the problem.
i don't have that experience just talk to a friend or a professional to help you. we have a suicide hotline if you would like to use it
This is a form of self treatment I suggest ... whenever you want to chemically harm yourself. Drink alot of water
Focus on love. What do you love in life? What do you care? If you find your tiny love, you can make it big! And it will protect you from any damage. It is not possible now for you to harm yourself. Take care!
This can be difficult to stop however the best way to overcome this is to find out what is triggering the self harm. When this has been found and you can identify the thoughts of when you may self harm you should try and distract yourself with hobbies you enjoy. This will be difficult and will take time. Take one day at a time and you can overcome this.
