Default What age did you start/quit?

What age were you when you started self-harming? And if you've since quit, at what age did you? Also, if you've had any relapses.

Also, if you've ever attempted suicide, what ages was that at?

I started around 8... I didnt cut back then, it was more of a mental self harm than a physical self harm. I started to physically harm myself around 10-11. I quit about three months ago but in November I relapsed. I've been trying to stop again, I recently threw my blades out. I have attempted suicide but I never followed through, I think I was 9, right before I started cutting.

I began cutting in 7th grade (I'm in 12th now) and starving myself in 10th.

I started right after I turned 12 and it went on for nearly a year.
I finally started getting counseling and I am about 130 days
free of it (I turned 13 in August). I have come close to relapsing
a few times but managed to overcome it thanks to the counseling.

Default Re: What age did you start/quit?

I started pulling out my hair when I was 11, then when I was 12 I started banging my head against walls and scratching and biting myself. I didn't start cutting until I was 14 and I kept it hidden for a long time. Recently I've started to take control and I'm trying to stop, but my other self-harming behaviors are coming back now because I'm not cutting. I'm starting to pull out my hair again, and I'm banging my head into walls more often. I'm beginning to wonder if stopping cutting myself is going to be worth pulling my hair out and banging my head into walls.

As far as suicide goes, I have never attempted it, though I thought about it ever since elementary school, possibly as early as second or third grade. I was having recurrent overwhelming thoughts of suicide in middle school and after that and held a knife to my throat multiple times with the intent of killing myself, but I was always ended up backing out at the last moment. I suppose there's always been a part of me that wants to live.

I started when I was 13 but it didn't get to the point of reliance until I was 14. I've stopped here and there, but somehow go back to it. I'm hoping though, this year will be the year I do actually stop, so 18/19.

i've been doing it on and off since i was early 14, I only end up doing it every couple of weeks, but it's been getting worse. I really need to stop asap, or things are going to get pretty bad pretty soon. never attempted suicide though

I started when I was 13, I'm 16 now and at the moment I'm in a period where I've stopped but usually I end up relapsing and go through stages where I SH regularly. I don't -usually- actively choose to stop, it just kind of happens.

I started about two years ago, when I was around 11 or so.
Mentally and physically harming myself.
Haven't quit yet, and I don't really have any motivation to quit.

My last suicide attempt, was around 4 months ago.
Tried to overdose on sleeping pills.
Wasn't fun.

i like music more than people.
