I have been cutting since I was about 13. I'm now nearly 18. It's obviously not a good thing to do, but it seems to be the only way I can relieve stress and anger. Nothing else works. As soon as I put the razor to my skin and see the blood building up, it's just like an instant rush of relief and I calm down right away. it's a terrible habit and i need to stop before I cut too deep one day.
I freaked out for the first time the other day since i started cutting. I had cut very deep and you could see the yellow fat in my arm. I realised only that day that this is an extremely dangerous habit and it needs to be stopped before it's too late.

Whoa that's really deep, I've never cut that deep myself... Wow we're basically the same age, and started cutting at the same age too... I'm glad you realized that you need to stop, I really hope something just one day clicks inside of you to make you stop.. I completely relate to you, it is so relieving..
