I want to start cutting

Im not a cutter...yet. I hear these stories about how great it feels, about how the anger and pain come out and leave. I want to cut so badly but I can't. At first I made excuses. I told myself I didn't have the materials, that I would be caught but now I have a blade. I stole a blade from my dad. It's new but burnt and I'm trying my hardest not to use it. All these people are saying to stop but I can't listen. My life is fine, there's nothing wrong but I want to feel free and in control. How can I stop if I haven't even started?

Don't Start
by: Cassandra

trust me, as a former cutter, DON'T START! i was the same as you when i first started,but it quickly led to more problems. yes, it helped relieve the initial feelings of hurt, pain, and stress, but it quickly led to a life full of guilt, shame, sectrets, and lies. i've lied to so many people about it, and its not fun. the guilt and shame you feel after you do it, is worse than just dealing with it in a healthy way. trust me, stopping, and you will want to stop one day, is very difficult. i've been trying to stop for over 2years now with MANY relapses and periods where i didn't because it is so hard. i'm now at 8months cut-free, and still struggle with the urges at times. i've had to get stitches, and that was definately not fun. it was also very humiliating. and when others asked me what had happened, i lied again to them. don't start. find a trusted CHRISTIAN adult such as a parent, friend, youth pastor, or senior pastor.

Don't, Please
by: S. Helen

Please, don't do it. I've been doing it for four years. It's addictive. you become a different you. you depend on a Sharpe pain when ANY emotion hits, i cut when im mad, sad, happy, depressed, excited, angry, frustrated. Its not worth it. If i had someone tell me I'd become a freak i wouldn't of done it. you cant wear shorts or short sleeves because scars cover your arm. it is not worth it. your giving up freedom. freedom to be happy. once you start your always have that scar. bruises fade but scars takes years. Take it from a Cutter, It isn't worth the pain. This Isn't a game. This, Self Harm is my nightmare, yet I'm living my nightmare and losing.
