The best is to find a person (friend, family, bf/gf) who would listen to you, with whome you could talk and solve your problem. It helped for me.

I used to write on index cards listing positive things about my life and myself and everything. I would do 1 for each day I felt like cutting. If I cut I would rip the paper and color it with red marker and if I didnt cut that day then I would keep the card for another time. It worked for me until I ran out of index cards

i wrote music, poems and listened to a lot of music.
i also cut in a orange, i got the idea from tattoo artists, their very first tattoo is usually on a orange, because it's kinda like the human skin

Unhappy Re: A list of ways to stop Self Harm and Cutting

This is a great list, but a lot of the things here don't work for me. The butterfly project worked for a while until I started killing them, and then feeling terrible for it.

My ways of stopping are:
1. Message my close friend or my boyfriend who knows about it as soon as I feel ready.
2. Screw the sharpener up after cutting and hide it.
3. Listen to certain soothing music.

All I can say is put whatever you're cutting with down. Stop before you get like me. It's not the first cut that's addicting, it's the first deep cut when the blood flows.

Um, I'm not sure how much this would work, but I found one thing that I did ended up in me forcing myself to stop.

My parents found out that I had 2 massive cuts on my arm, so I quickly came up with an excuse that I accidentally cut it during cross country. But because of that, they expect that it would heal, obviously enough, so because of that if I kept cutting they would eventually find out I was doing it to myself.

So basically this is a method for people who don't want their parents or whoever to find out. Just make an excuse that they won't believe unless you stop cutting, sort of.

So if you cut yourself on your arm constantly (can't be too many scars or cuts, maybe 4 cuts that are relatively close at most), then say you cut it on a fence or something while running past, and wear short sleeves so that your parents will find out and ask you what happened.

I'm not sure if this will work or not, sorry if it doesn't :/ But it's just what happened to me

The best way to stop is to make other changes in your life. Change schools, jobs, friends, anything you can. Make it a whole new start. My main progress in stopping cutting happened when I went to college. My life changed and it gave me the motivation to stop. 4 years later I still have cravings so no way is that the easy option, but it helps.

Oh, and the most important thing? You have to want to stop.

You brought hate, pills and knives,
And this is how the tale begins.
Its your life, exist and wonder why.
When it only fails to work,
It only fails to work sometimes

Sometimes I squeeze ice cubes until they melt. (Bonus that I love the feeling of pressure against my palms.) You could also press them against the area you want to cut or otherwise hurt, but I think that's already on the list.

You're right. Plus, I guess if I'd do the project I'd just cut at another place on my body. I mean, I can't cover my whole body in butterflies, can I?
Still, the butterfly project inspired me in a way. I'm now planning on getting a tattoo of a butterfly on my wrist, kind of as a reward for when I finally battle my urges to self-harm.
