i know kinda how you’re feeling. what i’ve been trying to do to not cut myself lately is thinking about other people’s reactions. for me, no one except my best friend knows that i cut, so the thought of them finding out really helps stop me. i’ve also gotten rid of anything sharp in my room. i don’t know how effective these methods are for other people, and i’ve only been trying them since the last time i cut, which was like six days ago, but i think you should at least try.
Why do you need to cut yourself? Life isn’t that bad, no matter how bad you think it is there is always someone out there that has it a lot worse than you do. I mean personally what you are doing is the easy way out, try facing your problems for a change and see what happens. Do just give up keep moving forward! There are always people who understand what you are going through like me for instance. Just keep living life!!!
I did throw away most of my razors and stuff , But I could easily find some more . And most of all , Im scared . Because I know how I feel after the cuts , I feel terrible . And then theres this hideous mark on my arm . I cant be alone with myself .
Most of the time , I feel like theres a monster ripping me apart inside , and the only way to get rid of him is to cut and release the pain .
is there any other way to get rid of him thats not self destructive? you have to like something else that gets rid of him

i want to stop how do i
I just started cutting a few days ago after my brother found out his cancer came back for the first time. My family is so dysfunctional and i feel like im drowning all the time. Cutting is the only way i can deal, it just takes away the preassure…even if its only for a little while. But school starts tomorrow…i need to stop….before it gets worse. please help!
i dont want to cut. i really dont but every time I do i feel better. Its like when i am sad and i cut myself i am no longer sad. but if i chose not to cut myself I stay sad for a long time…. I dont want to cut myself i really dont. I love myself. but I dont know what else to do. please help me. I dont know what else to do…
i think i sorta kinda know how you’re feeling. i’ve been through things like this before but instead of telling you my sob story i’ll just say that i’ve cut before sometimes up to 50 cuts in one sitting and just talking about it makes me want to again but i won’t. Cutting is an addiction, it gives you a high that sometimes you think you can’t live without. That was last summer and i still have millions of scars all over my body. I stopped because i need to be stronger for my friends who are starting to cut now and they need to know that im here for them always because there is ALWAYS someone who loves you no matter what. Get rid of sharp objects that you usually use to cut and get some ice on your cuts then use lotion. this makes them a little less visible but it wont work if you continue to cut
one way that my friend used to stop that i do insead of cutting is put an elastic on your rist and snap it at your rist when you feel like cutting … you still are doing something bad becasue your hurting yourself but its a way to get off of cutting
While you might think that causing pain on the outside is whats alleviating your pain on the inside, cutting also has another dimension by giving your body and brain and adrenaline rush. Snapping rubber bands might be a way to redirect part of the process (but as said before, it’s not a cure as it still can cause injury), but for some they also need that ‘rush’. There are many activities out there that can give you this rush without putting yourself in harms way (and causing yourself guilt afterward). Personally, I used to go outside and break logs, using sticks, gravity, axes, etc (the bonus was I felt good for having made my family firewood lol). But there are other things I’ve hear of like skateboarding, gymnastics (flips and such), karate, seeing how far you can throw a heavy rock, climbing trees, etc.
These might help alleviate the immediate pressure, but to rid yourself of the problem you have to find out whats causing it, and figure out proactive things to nip it as close to the root as you can, because cutting yourself is the end result of a very long process of pain. You can’t change everything, but with work you can change your perspective or the way you process feelings so that all the horrible crap around you doesn’t affect you so much, and break the cycle. Hope this helps
no one helps, i find that you can’t trust ANYONE. i cut my self for so many reasons, i can’t even count. i told, who did i tell first oh yeah. my friend in gym i almost started crying because we were doing wrestling, and my arm was soaking through my sweater.she thought that her life sucked because she wasn’t sure if her guyfriend liked her, do she started being emo (i don’t like the word cutter- it pisses me off), i told my best friend, she wondered why so she started, and liked the way it feels, and just because austin likes someone else she cuts her self. she told a girl who told her mom not out of consern just because shes close, her mom called the counsler, but he only knows about me, really because i have ****** luck.
so now everyone knows because i leave class every friday. ADULTS. ARE. DUMB. and i can’t cut myself or my parents will know, during spring break, which is still going, i cut my self really badly 20+ times in 4 differant places on my are one of them hasn’t stopped bleeding in 3 days. worried. oh ya and i have a bf i don’t know, that won’t let me drink, or smoke weed, or party. ****. my only releases, that 2/3 just cause more problems, i guess he may be good for me :)… hmm.
I just started cutting again. I was raped, abused and hurt. It hurts, I know. I’m not gonna tell you not to because of my own actions, but be safe.
