Please know that cutting is like any vice (something you do to escape)- smoking, drinking, any addiction- the longer you do it the more "used to it" you get, th emore of it it takes, and the better you get at it. Cutting can become an addiction, like substance abuse, gambling, sex, etc. the sooner you get help, the better off you will be.
i've been cutting sense i was in the 5th grade, i've been doing really really will but my girlfriend dumbped me and it was really got to me. i feel really hollow, i know we weren't going to get married or love each other for ever. i just want to cut so bad. ive tried everything, talking to my parents and friends, working out, poetry, but nothing helps. i dont want to die, it just solves everything
Oh wait I know this one. it helps some cause i also cut. But mostly on my legs, and some on my arms. Get a rubberband or several rubberbands and put them on both arms. When ever you feel like cutting snap those a few time or however many times you need to. Do it hard too, it works better. Make sure the rubberbands are tight but not to tight to where it cuts the blood flow.
i started cutting recently cause i was having a hard time with schoola dn friends. and life was rough. i know what you mean, it's adicting. i have 9 cuts on my let arma dn the words "no trust" cut into my leg. its hard to stop on your own. my friend =s found out and they got me help. i was mad at first, but it really helped, talk to a friend or someone you really trust, and if there's no one like that try getting professional help, trust me it will help, the scars may always be thre, but don't let that change who you are inside, i took anitdepressants, and go to theropy, it helps! talk to your friends and family, and a professional. it will definately bworth it
I have cut myself since December 2008. I don't want to stop. It makes me feel better, so I don't care what anybody says. I pity you people who want to stop. Cutting is a perfectly legitimate way to deal with problems, so I don't understand why it's so urgent to stop. I say the same thing on every website.
So many say how they are not crazy how cutting is ok, there is no guilt..Few words later and they admit it is not healthy..Some say physical pain is better than mental pain..
Pain is pain and it hurts period..To say I wear my pain with a sense of happiness -come on honey --happiness does not cause pain..You gave a contradiction in terms..
Why does there have to be any pain? The world is crazy it always has been that is no excuse to inflict injury upon oneself..Actually there is no reason..No matter what you say no matter what kind of excuse you come up with fact is there is no excuse..
You are struggling with all of lifes complications and pain and you hurt..That is life and we all go through it..Why is it so hard for you? That is the question.. What could help you deal with life better? Each person I have read about that cuts have all said basicly the same thing--they need someone to talk with..
This forum is great in that everyone can say I need help, I hurt..I hope that it serves as a foundation for people to take responsibility for their actions and see it is not healthy to inflict injury and to seek help..Look at how many people come on to this site with pain.. Take the time to encourage another to stop and you just may find your own pain is lessening and soon it too may stop..
Do one day at a time saying you will not hurt yourself, then one night and repeat the process.. I am no better nor no worse than any of you..I don't hurt myself but I have physical pain so I know how that feels..Please give yourself a chance for a scar free life and a sense of accomplishment in dealing with your hurt..I am here..Sorry for being so winded..I am passionate about life and I don't want anyone hurting themselves intentionally..
If I had to choose I would say that Kirawolfs idea is better than anyones in that using a rubber band at least it will hurt without the scarring..
I was/am a cutter myself..right now i feel the 'push'
but i got psychological help, he helped me realise why i get these 'pushes' and it's helping me calm myself down every time i feel it..
so, i suggest a psychologist.. just tell him everything you feel and you'll find out more about yourself then you think, only than can you try to make things better..
A few of my friends know that I self-injure but I have never sought professional help. I can't really afford it, my stupid job does not offer medical insurance. I really don't trust anyone around me to understand and I don't think they care. I have dealt with this for many years and I fear for many more to come. It's the only thing that calms me down and of course after I am ashamed of myself. The scars are a reminder everyday of how crazy I feel. I'm soon to be 26 shouldn't I be over this yet!? I don't get the urge to hurt myself every time I am upset but I do get a huge urge to break something. But I always come back to cutting... I feel like a freak! Who's going to love me with these scars?
Well if thereÂ´s someone who really loves you he/she wonÂ´t care about some scares or even how you look...just about youre soule (whatever you say...I still believe in that)
In my opinion scars donÂ´t look bad they can be actually good looking ,too, just think of the nativ ppl in africa.
DonÂ´t thy make themeselves scars for beauty?
Or think of piercings or tatoos that is some kind of self-injury too, but with the only difference that itÂ´s acceptet by society. And I think I donÂ´t have to mention all the beauty ops!
So donÂ´t worry if you got a good chrakter youÂ´ll find someone to love!!!
Really honey, icut and i know nothing replaces tht feeling.. the light headedness of losing blood. the stabbing pain you feel as the razors brushes your skin and the red blood that seeps out and doesnt stop. No one understands why i do it and sometimes i think its just for tht feeling but really its a release.. I have cuts on my both of my thighs bot sides of my waist i have scars on my hip n lower thigh n wrist.. But you gotta try to resist that feeling cuz after having all them scars you feel shameful n embarrased. Its llike the weak side of you. Some ways to stop is, and i know it sounds dumb but get a rubber band and when you feel like cutting start snapping it on ur wrist.. It doesnt work for me but it might work for u..... But be safeee.
Harming oneself is never a solution for anything that hurt you, be it a relation or a career.
One should not be alone when depressed, try to move out and get yourself involved in other activities which you like and share your things with your friends.
Same scenario and environment leads one to get remember the same things, so one must move out of that particular atmosphere, should plan a visit out of town.
Think of what all you wanted to achieve and what all you haven't achieved yet, move on!

Hi everyone. My name is Denise. I've been a cutter sense I was 16. I'm 34 years old now. I can't stop cutting. It feels so good to remove the feelings that I absolutely can't deal with. I've tried to stop multiple amount of times, but just couldn't. I just cut myself again in a bad way. I even stabbed myself in the stomach. I'm also schizoaffective and have antipersonality disorders as well as split personality disorder. I have panic disorder and agoraphbia. I've been in therapy for a very long time and with a psychiatrist for many many years. I've also been in many mental hospitals. Obviously, the help that I'm getting along with the medication is not helping. I'm totally in the dark. I DO NOT know what else to do. I'm losing touch with reality. Help!
I am 15 and cut my arms really deep. I don't realize how deep they are until the day after. I know that it hurts but it's the only thing that I think helps. It has become an addiction to me. I can't wear short sleeves or anything. I have cut my legs, my thighs, my wrists, and my ankles. I can't stoP. I have cut ever since 6th grade. I also have MDD and I'm a recovering anorexic. I just really want help. Please help me?
I cut for a few years in high school. It was a tough time for me, not as tough as other people had it but in my mind I thought it was the worst. I got addicted to it though and still thought about it ALOT.I stopped cutting about 7 years ago and now have just started again. I'm not sure why, I'm not even going through a lot of bad things right now. It's just so addictive and I get like a fix after I finish. I only have three new scars so far but it's definitely worse than it was when I was in highschool. When I cut back then it was more just scratches and I barely have any scars. But now every cut is leaving a huge white scar... I hope they go away eventually.
I wish everyone here luck stopping cutting, burning, whatever it is that hurts you. I have never cut myself so I won't pretend that I know exactly what it's like. But I have helped A LOT of people who cut and do other things that are very self destructive. My best piece of advice is to find an outlet,we all have pain and hurt in our lives, we all have stress and anxiety, the best thing to do is turn that energy into something positive. Ride your bike and build some trails, get out your brushes and paint for the sake of painting, look at yourself in the mirror each morning and say "I am beautiful" 3 times. Value yourself, surround yourself by others who value you, and above all love with all your heart. Again, I don't know exactly what its like but I wish you the best of luck.
I Am A Self Harmer , One Night I Sat In My Bathroom Covered In Blood Crying , And I Told Myself Your Somebody I Can Feel , I've Tries To Stop But iCant , /: Andd , Well , I Have Deep Cuts , But , iVE Been Hurt So Much , iKnow If I Took It Too Far , iWouldnt Care , But Heres Hope Your Not Alone , <'3
it seems like most people have the perception that people cut because they don't think that they are beautiful. i know that that is one reason people cut but in this persons case it sounds like they are cutting because their going through hard times. there are people on here saying that you should look in a mirror and tell yourself your beautiful or whatever, but how is that going to help with hard family problems or something? for cutters, cutting IS an outlet. its how they feel better. i personally have only had one cutting session where i cut myself 7 times, once on my very inner thigh and 6 times on my left arm. i obviously know its bad for me but it honestly made me feel better. people who haven't tried cutting obviously don't understand, so they shouldn't try to help people like us. we try to help each other.
