Thanks to everyone who posted ideas! This is my homework this week. I need to learn how to self-soothe because SI is NOT the way to get away from my feelings. Thanks for the alternatives.
Good luck to all of you!

I'm glad it helps. I'm just living on chocolate these last few weeks myself - which I think is better than the alternatives, I hope. I had done well for a while. Made it 5 1/2 months. Now I'm at almost 3 weeks.

scratch draw a picture on a thick piece of wood or use a screw driver and stab at the piece of wood.

do some cooking

try some sewing, crossstitch, etc.

Scribble on paper. Clutch the pen in your fist. It's a way to diffuse it on to paper. (Get a few sheets so they don't tear.)

these ones are some that i have tried and they made me trigger, when i was cutting into the wood (with a chisel, not screw driver) i ended up gouging into my leg with it as well, when i was cooking i would purposefully hold my arm against metal in the oven so they would burn and with the sewing and drawing/scribbling i just ploughed the pen and needle into my arm. so for these ones you really have to trust yourself about how you are with sharp objects.

but what if its not because of emotion. what if you just WANT to? not need, just simply want to see blood and to have another scar? then what?

But don't you see that as an emotional reason..... the want (desire) you speak of comes from within you.... from your unresolved wounds - rather you see it or not.

thanks you guys, i tried a bunch of these things out today cause i was feeling angry and messed up and just wanted to shred myself (not a good impression on the night before HS starts). the drawing with red was okay but afterwards i felt worse so i ended up using the rubberband which helped calm me down and then i went to our park on my bike, rode around it a few times and then stayed on the swings until i calmed down enough to go home and know i wasn't going to hurt myself.
