    I started cutting at age 10.

    Even by then i'd been through so much, but, that rush that release from cutting filled my mind with euphoria.

    Can You Relate? You Have The Power To Stop!

    Before you make that first cut, remember-- You will find the blood and pain release addictive. Even though you think you can make a few tiny cuts that aren't deep and will heal easily-- They will get deeper. They will scar. They will take sometimes months to heal. And years...

    I Just Do

    I cut my writs because it just makes me feel better. I started cutting my wrist when I was fifteen years old. And I'm eighteen and I still do it. For me, it keeps my mind off the bad things that happened to me. When I'm mad, I cut my wrist and I feel calm and relaxed.
