I don't think I want to stop....

I have self harmed for about three years, I'm 13 and suddenly all the scars are annoying me, it's ruined some friendships and I feel like I should stop, but I'm not sure if I actually want to. I know it'll be hard but I've grown so used to it. Please help.

    Firstly it's really good that you have posted and are looking for some help.

    This link could benefit you :)

    Does anybody know about your self harm? You have mentioned friendships being ruined, is that cos they have found out about your self harm? I think it's great your looking for support.

    Stopping self harm is hard, it becomes part of your life. It's hard to just stop and it's normal to have some uncertainty about whether you actually want to stop.

    I know how you feel, for me it is about if I stop fully I am coming out of my comfort zone, and also about me not being in control, but the reasons why somebody doesn't want to stop is different for each person, just sharing my own experience.
