    You are so brave @LorryTruck. Thank you for sharing your journey, I think this will help a lot of people make brave decisions in their lives. Just emphasising what everyone has already said, it's your own personal journey and there may be ups and downs but you should be so proud.
    Stay strong <3

    Heya! It's okay! If you're struggling to update your journal here then it's good to have a calendar. Something like this:

    To have it on your wall and keep track of the days you haven't self harmed. <3
    Having a colour/sticker system helps too!

    A daily dose of motivation:

    Hi.
    You are doing so well, honestly. The self-determination you have showed in not only reaching 5 days clean but, sticking with it and now on your way to beat it, and that you will definitely do.
    We are all here for you and you are doing amazingly :))

    YOU'RE DOING AMAZING @LorryTruck :star:

    I understand how hard it can be to stay clean, but when you build up the days like you are doing, you can reflect on how far you've come and see that there are alternatives ways to manage feelings/emotions <3 Don't be hard on yourself if you continue to find it hard, recovery is never linear, but staying clean for over a week and fighting those urges is a huge milestone!

    You are strong and you can do this! <3

    You're doing so well!!!!
    When the bad days come, it's always gonna be hard, but the fact that its hard shows that it's important and is worthwhile.
    You are amazing, and we are all here for you.
    You can do this! :)))

    @LorryTruck it sounds like you are having a difficult time at the moment, I'm sorry that you are experiencing this. However, your journal idea is brilliant and super brave too! It's scary enough to think about changing, and even scarier sharing your progress with others - well done :)

    You are not alone in this - I'm sure you have seen all the lovely people cheering you on in the comments, add me to that list haha :) Try not to let slip-ups get you down - think about it, on day 0 you had 0 days clean - you made it to six! You've made it this far, and I believe you can do it again.

    Don't give up - we are here for you through the good and the bad :)
