  • Have I done this before? How did I cope then? Did I feel the same way?
  • What other paths have I pursued to ease my pain before now? Is there something else I can do, a self-harm alternative, that won't hurt?
  • How am I feeling now?
  • How will I feel later, when I am self-injuring?
  • How will I feel afterward? How will I feel tomorrow morning?
