I'm Losing The Battle

I've tried so many times to stop cutting but I can't. I want to, but I can't do it. I love the feel of a blade slicing through my skin. One of the few things that makes me happy. So yeah I cut. I wanna stop but I won't.

I often want to cut. I only did once when I was 17. I still feel a strong impulse to do so; I've since learned that the behavior is very addictive. I guess I have developed other coping strategies, though I can't necessarily say that they are any more helpful. but you are certainly not alone. <3
