I have huge addiction.
I have tried counseling and I can never seem to kick it.

And I know its a bad habit, but it just feels so good.
Is there any tips from anyone who has kicked an addiction?

I had surgery. Fixed my addiction by nearly killing me.

Bump for other, more insightful answers.

Changed scenery. I put myself somewhere where I was no longer in a position to indulge my addiction and was able to kick it.

I have an addiction to self harm.

It is not the "slit my wrists for attention" or "I want to die" type.

I have never done it in a visible place. And I have never done more than barely breaking the skin. All in all, I basically give myself a bad paper cut.

But I understand why it isn't good. And I don't want my daughter to end up seeing it.

I thought you were going to say cafemom

Try another therapist/counselor since the one you have isn't working out for you

Ha, yeah, CafeMom is getting up there.
But in all seriousness.

Thank you. My husband and I are currently looking for a new one. Thankfully he is very supportive. And tries his best.

Find someone else to talk to if you're in therapy already.

My husband and I are on the look. Thankfully, he is supportive in getting me help.
But unfortunately, we live in a small town with not a lot of options.
