I am in treatment for alcohol. I have 90 days sober today. This is good but my disease is rearings its head in the form of self harming now. The techs have taken away my implements. I found a means to self harm in the kitchen. I have tons of people to tell yet feel i cant tell anyone.

I am sorry you feel this way. It must be so distressing for you. Being free from alcohol might mean that your reasons for drinking have reared their heads and you are having to deal with the underlying causes. Telling people you self harm is difficult isn't it? I have done it in the past and still get embarrassed by the scars now that I am free from it.

If you can't tell anyone, can you tell a doctor how you feel and what you are doing?
