okay i cut myself.......its really hard to stop i dont know how and i need help
ya its rlly hard 2 stop im trying to stop but.....
When I cut my arm it scars but when I cut my wrist it bruises. What happened?
You should try listening to music,writing stories/poetry, staying away from sharp objects,playing an instrument,writing songs,playing sports,or taking up a hobby or two. I used to cut too so now that my parents know it's easier to do these things more often without them being clingy and suspicious about me being in my room so much.
I do all those things but tell my parents any other advice?
---------an alternative, such as: squeezing an icecube, dipping ur hand in cold water, then hot (it feels like ur burnign when it rlly doesnt actually harm u at all), or by snapping a ruber band around ur wrist.
i hope this helps,

7. try some breathing excersises.
8. draw a picture of a big heart. fill it up with little circles until it is all filled up.
9. whenever u want to cut, draw a butterfly on ur skin (where u cut) and name it after someone who u know cares about u. if u cut, then the butterfly dies and u have to wash it off, and it didnt 'get freed into the wild.' so let it go away itself, and if it fades away without u cutting, then it 'got freed into the wild.'
if u cant stop cutting, find----
1. take out a picture of a loved one right when u feel like cutting, and think about how if they ever found out u cut (or already know) that it would probably hurt them as well as yourself.
2. distract urself--read a book, walk outside, or draw.
3. write in a diary.
4. squeeze or punch an inanimate object.
5. listen to music.
6. talk to a friend.
7. write the name of someone u love on the place u usually cut, and remind urself that this person luvs u and cares about u. --------------------
i cut wid my paper clip sumtimes but THE WAY TO STOP IS FIND SUMTHIN ELSE TA DO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
well..i cut only when i start to have suicidal thoughts bczx it takes my mind off trying to kill myself again..sooo ii need help myself...HELP :'(
i stopped cutting by putting a rubber band or hair tie around my wrist and everytime i thought about cutting myself i would pull the rubber band/hair tie and let it hit my wrist. This may not work for everyone cuz in a way it could be a form of self injury. it worked for me and hopefully, for everyone who has or will try it, it will help. Good luck!! Hope this helped!!
