I cut myself one time. I think I'm addicted to it.

Ok I cut myself one time. I think I'm addicted to it. I need to know if being amused by the pain is part of having an addiction to the pain

Sadly cutting can be addictive. But you have to focus that addiction on to something positive one way I found to stop cutting was to draw or spend more time
With friends . There are a lot of stopping resolution on the internet try one of them. None of them worked for me but may for you.

One way I keep from cutting is, every time I feel like I need to cut, I draw/paint over the skin where I would've cut. Create something beautiful instead of destroying something.
