That's it mostly, other people have actual feelings that it brings. But in the chemistry of it, when you harm yourself the brain sends off endorphins, which is like a 'high'. A huge amount of relief.

Endorphins - Substances produced by the brain that have painkilling and tranquillizing effects on the body. Endorphins are thought to be similar to morphine and are usually released by the brain during times of extreme body stress.
Like I said, other people have personal feelings that it brings, but that is about the same for everyone.

For me, it's control, helps me know that I'm still in control.
