    I stated cutting when I was 11.

    I still do, and I truly don't see the problem. I don't cut too deep, just enough to release inner pain.

    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.

    This is the first time I've cut in 2-3weeks.

    .. It felt so good... It made everything seem okay... A little bit... But the pain still lingers. The hurt won't go away... I want to end it... So badly... I've been rejected more than once... Why should I live?

    I started cutting when I was 14.

    Started off with small cuts but when my boyfriend died, I didnt just cut my wrist but all my thighs and other areas that arent visible to the naked eye. Back then all I thought was that physical pain was easier to bear than the emotional pain from losing a loved one. But I...
