Well, yes. You need to find something alternate to cutting for the sake of it. Try running, or a high endorphin rush sport/activity.

Exactly, it wasn't attention seeking either. I go through so many different lies about what did it. I don't want people knowing.

So stand in line while they ink numbers in your head, You're now a slave until the end of time here.

Thanks for making self harming clear to people who have not done the proper research and think it is all for attention when it isn't at all.

i really appreciate this im tired of articles saying that people who practice self harm are just attention seeking or its a cry for help because for me it was not. like it says i did it to release painful emotions and nobody ever knew about them until i quit.

I agree. If I could, I would have easily quit a few years back. My mom found out in 2010, I had to do everything in my power to keep it a bigger secret. I couldn't stop.

Great post, a lot of people don't understand self harm. Because they don't understand it they fear it and fear develops into hate and so forth. People need to be given correct information about self harm so they don't make mis-informed decisions that affect people in the worst ways..
