Draw On Yourself

Drawing on yourself could be as simple as drawing red lines on the area where you’re tempted to self-harm. This way you can still see a red mark where you would have otherwise self-harmed.

Or you could get more creative and actually draw and doodle all over yourself as a distraction, to keep your hands and mind busy instead of self-harming.

It’s important to find what works for you. If this doesn’t help, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to cope. See other ideas of things to try.

    yes but drawing/writing on yourself where we self-harm, wouldn’t it give us blood poisoning from the ink.
