Telling someone they are being weak isn't going to help. Being aggressive isn't going to help. These will most likely make people defensive and an argument will break out. Your heart is in the right place, just the manner you went about it isn't the best.
You are more likely to help someone stop by showing them in a non-aggressive manner the fact that it ruins lives, congratulating them on doing well (as you have said), supporting them on the road to recovery and help them to find replacement outlets for emotions.

It takes a strong level of desperation to cause someone to feel the only way they can cope is through hurting themselves. It takes a strong level of determination to break the cycle/addiction. Self harm is not a coping mechanism for the weak or the strong, it is one for the desperate.
