Our expert says:
Good to have managed to move away from cutting, but self-birning isn't really any better. Some folks fall into this bad habit when they are in situations where they cant think of how to cope. Best to see a psychiatrist for a proper assessment, and treatment of any specific condition, such as depression, that might be present. Otherwise, CBT style counselling from a good psychologist could help you to learn far better ways of coping with such situations, much better coping skills, and ways to recognize and avoid such situations wherever possible.
You can indeed fix this yourself, though best with the right sort of expert advice. Looney bins not necessary
