Anybody ever think about what their religion says about cutting? Do you think that would help somebody stop cutting (or continue as the case may be)? I'm just wondering. I'm Jewish (Go Jews!) and we're supposed to be happy and enjoy life and not obstruct our body in any way. No tattoo's or peircings...or self-inflicted scars. How 'bout y'all?

Sorry to get all deep on you...I should go to sleep now

I'm buhdist (under my own will), and we are really advised to take care of ourselves. I guess it kind of means express yourself in another way that will be more healthy and nurturing

i think that the people who are in the mental state to cut them selves probably dont give a damn about religious laws controlling their life

hmmm, well that offended me...

1. People don't necessarily need to be in a 'mental state' to self harm. Yes, quite often they do have a mental illness of some kind (eg: depression) but not always.
2. Generally speaking, they're not 'religious laws' intended to control your life, they're guidelines about how to live your life which are interpreted differently by different individuals.
2. I used to be a very strict christian a few years back. It may sound stupid but I recently became an atheist after a few close people died and I found no comfort in God like I had done previously. When I was very religious, it was a huge weight on my conscience to cut. I believed God wouldn't want me mutilating my body in any way but I couldn't stop myself.

So yes, I did give a damn about my beliefs and the christian faith and it was a constent battle with my conscience to be cutting. Hope you understand your own statement a little better now.

*...All the possibility and promise just weighs on me so heavily...*
