A fairly recent one - Scarred by Sophie Andrews - although not all the same issues as me, it kind of made me feel like I wasn't alone in what I've done

I've recently read 'Wasted' and 'Madness' by Marya Hornbacher, both brilliant IMO. I particularly loved 'Wasted' (probably because I relate to the ED stuff rather than the Bipolar stuff in 'Madness'), she has an honest but poetic style of writing that really got to me. They're hard to read but worth it. :)

The drama of being a child by Alice Miller. It's the book that got me to stop SH, together with CBT.

th1rteen r3asons why by Jay Asher. that book stopped me from killing myself about a year ago - but be warned it talks about suicide through the whole of the book.

Just two more to add that aren't on the list...

'Freedom from Addiction' by Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrrell. Focuses on addictive behaviour in general and how to change it - it's called 'The Human Givens Approach'

'I'm OK-You're OK' by Thomas A. Harris. Was written in the 1960s so some of the gender examples are a bit outdated!

Both of these books are practical help about trying to change behaviours.
