Hi Joey, Stopping on your own is very, very difficult. Beleive me, I have been trying for 8 years. However, if you have a good support system (friends, family, or yes even a therapist) that you can trust and be honest with, then yes you can stop this behavior. The cure is within you, but you will need the help of others to help you find that cure. Don't be afraid to ask for help! Your worth it. Good Luck.
