  1. I gave up about 2 months ago, and have only had two since. I am proud to say I gave up without patches or gum, or anything. I just stayed with my girlfriend for a week and was with her just about 24/7 and we both knew i needed to give up. I really miss it though, as it helped keep my weight down and i gained about 6 kg after i stopped, and it was nice to have a smoke when i was stressed :( but Ive saved so much money so i dont look back.
  2. I am pretty sure I'm asexual and panromantic. That means that I can fall in love with any sex, but I don't want to have sex with anyone. I feel safer with women though and have found women to be more supportive for the most part. not saying there arent supportive men, theyre just ahrder to find. But because I was sexually abused when i was young, I dont know if thats why im asexual. Anyone else asexual?
  3. I got Love on my wrist, over my scars, because love is what got me through depression. I'd suggest getting something that when you look at it, youll remember why youre fighting.
  4. Anything by Adele. Or Nineteen Stars by Meg and Dia. Its old, but Oh my god, the tears just flow.
  5. I love the sims and any classic games nintendo 64 like mario. I only just gave up Cityville on facebook since I was actually addicted to, which was shameful, but now I play LEGO harry Potter :)
  6. I have the word "Love" in amazinggg big, thick, cursive across the underside of my wrist. I got it for my 18th birthday to represent what got me through my depression and also the organisation TWLOHA. I love it.
  7. Thankyou. I really hope it does. I believe different ways help for different people, for example therapy, self help, group therapy, hospital, love & support etc. but I believe to get better we all learn and do quite similar things through our work. And for those who heal better using self help, I wanted to help them out because so much stuff out there is BS. When I was in forums for myself and dealing with my issues, everyone just said "go and see a psych" but that doesn't work for everyone so I hope I can just reach one person at least :)
  8. Hi guys, I'm new :) and I wanted to come and make myself be known. I'm Jess, I'm 18 but I've been through my fair share of stuff. I've been through just about every kind of abuse from 4 different men. I've been bullied. I've been through depression, bulimia, Borderline Personality Disorder and psychotic symptoms. But I've come through all that and now I just want to help other people :) So if you ever need a friend to talk to, feel free to message me :)
  9. Hi, I'm Jess, I'm 18 and I'm new here but I've already replied to a few people and this is definitely not my first depression forum. My passion in life has always been helping people, and I love helping out on forums, especially while I'm not studying or employed. So I want to share with you my story and how I overcame it. But I'm going to try and do it quickly. So in my life, I've dealt with: Severe bullying Emotional abuse from my dad up until I was 15 Parents divorce Sexual, emotional and physical abuse from a boy 6 years older than me, continuous from my age of 11-16 Sexual abuse from my best friend when I was 15 Sexual abuse from a man I didn't know on the streets when I was 16 Long term unemployment Neglect from my mother financially Which has lead to: Severe depression from ages 11-17 Borderline Personality Disorder Bulimia - from ages 12 to now, however it is so much better, and I am working on it. PTSD and severe anxiety issues from ages 13-17 Borderline psychosis - from ages 14-17 Self harming from ages 11-17 Suicide attempts from ages 11-17 Today, I am 18 and for the most part, happy. Between the ages of 11-16, I tried so many things. I tried 16 different therapists, I tried 9 different medications, I tried CBT, DBT, refused ECT. I tried talking to friends and family, I went into hospitals. When I was 16, I gave up. But after a while I started buying self help books everywhere on the internet. Some were horrible and a few were really good. I've made a page of the ones that got me through and the link is in my signature. One of the main things I learnt in these books, was how to stand up for myself and do what I needed to do. I know you'll hate me for saying this, but depression can be cured by changing the way you think. But thats ****** hard. These books and tapes took me through how to change my thinking. I never thought I could just simply 'change my thinking' before I read these books, but they make it so easy and do-able. It's really hard, but once you've got it, its so easy. It's like the contestants on shows like The Biggest Loser. The first few weeks they tell how hard it is, but then they click, and they talk about how easy it is to eat right and exercise. I really hope I've helped in some way, and I'm here for any of you if you want a friend :) But thanks for listening to my story. :)
  10. A combination of self help books. Therapy, meds, hospitalisations, didnt help for me. I guess everyone's different.
