That would be a nice way to be!Some people are simply bloomin brilliant and know better than to listen to that diseased part of their brain...they hear it ticking... They acknowledge it... They deny feeding it.

Refresh.... I am worried about you.
Please consider calling a professional if the battle becomes unbalanced .
The outcome needs to see you as the winner.

I *know* people do not consider this an 'addiction' but having experianced it i firmly say it is.
I was a self harmer for 6 years, i have not cut myself for 6 years and i still today fight the urge, i get physically ill, my fight or flight kicks in amd i end up a shaking sick mess when that little urge kicks in.
Why? Idk, i am no longer depressed, when i stopped i was no longer depressed i just *craved* the behaviour.
I do believe that someone who has an addiction can possibly turn.back to that addiction when stressed or triggered.

I'm in the 'always recovering' camp. I consider myself a recovering addict an I've been clean for 7yrs now. It's still a struggle at times though so can't say I am 'recovered' I'm just 'clean' iykwim.

I think most people have addictions wether they realise it or not.
I have an addiction to food. It's just not as overtly dangerous as other addictions and is socially acceptable. I'll never be able to just eat without having some sort of internal dialogue about am I hungry- so I need this, have I had enough/should I stop etc etc.
I can't imagine what you guys go through though. Depending on the addiction there are a lot of support organisations. I have someone close to me that has been clean for about 10 years, and after an injury slipped into overusing the pain meds... She could feel herself going and called NA. She's back on track and THAT MUCH more aware now. If she's feeling the urges she's going to call on support to stay away rather than support to get out again.
