I guess it's very personal as to what you consider to be self harm, however I'd say that doing anything that ends up causing yourself pain or damage would count. I know hurting yourself isn't something you can just stop so if you'd like to talk about it just message me, take care please.
Yes, it does! Every attempt that leads you to hurt your own self counts as self harm. So be careful with your behavior!
I think any kind of intention harm to ones self counts as self harm, so it's probably as bad as self harming since the effect is similar, and probably the reasons behind it also are.
