I wanted to see if anyone is interested in a 12 step program

I wanted to see if anyone is interested in a 12 step program for self harm.

Working the steps is how I have been able to stop. And I would like to (and have gotten permission from AA's world service office to begin working on an adaptation of the 12 steps for self harm.

I know that many people say that self harm is intentional, and for attention. I respectfully disagree.

I feel that the reason it is so had to stop, is it is never a conscious decision to begin with.

The other problem I know of that this poses, is that it is said, that people "like" self harm. No, they don't, they hate it, they just feel better. Any thoughts are appreciated.

There are a few reasons people start and continue. But yeah, it does become an addiction just as powerful as any substance addiction. I think the program you're suggesting is a good idea. It could help a lot of people with this specific addiction

@Bush560 I agree. Just looking for Person Number 2. The steps are how I was able to stop.
