This book is awsome! It is by the people at S.A.F.E. (Self Abuse Finally Ends). I bought my first copy in 2007 when I decided that I finally needed help to stop SI-ing (Self-Injuring). I worked with a Christian Counselor while reading this book.
It is VERY important to do the logs they suggest in this book. I have several notebooks filled with them. By being aware of your emotions and what you're doing when the urge to SI happens, you can begin to change behaviors that cause the urge to SI.
I started SI-ing in 1991 and was finally able to stop in 2009 (after going through this book several times). I ocasionally get the urge to SI now (2016) but it is never as bad as it used to be. And if I do injure, I am able to stop and evaluate what am I actually feeling? is it going to kill me? and what can I do instead?
If the urges ever come back in force, I know this book will always be there for me! What a great resource!
