I never felt pleasure cutting; only some temporary relief, some sort of validation I was giving my own pain.
I always feel great when I cut myself a line of coke or a slice of cake.
I don't feel pleasure. I feel a release and a happy. As if my bad feelings are being let out with the blood. I feel pain only sometimes and before I cut I feel fear because I've gone deep a few times.
Well don't. If anything try putting a rubber band on your wrist and snap it. Never cut yourself. I still do it and it's nothing I'd recommend to anyone. It's a new world to people who get into it and the way it takes you is nothing to romanticize or promote.
If you really want pain followed by euphoria, sniff some chili powder or eat the hottest pepper you can find. Capsaicin causes a release of dopamine.
People cut for various reasons. It's a coping mechanism for most. Physical pain can distract people from emotional pain. And when you harm yourself, your brain releases a natural pain reliever (a chemical called endorphins).
