Hey, these things happen. I understand how you're feeling. I was a cutter once too, so I know how difficult it is to try and stop. Just the fact that you tried is a huge effort. It doesn't matter that you went back. Stopping takes time.


If you ever need to talk about anything at all, just PM me.

Hi Dimmie. You are not a freak. You are a great girl. What is it that makes the cutting beautiful to you? When did you start?

Dimruthien, honestly I don't know what its like to cut myself. But I have struggled with lots of emotional issues for years. There have been plenty of times where I've felt like giving up the fight. The battle is hard and at times it feels impossible. There is nothing wrong with that. We all have points in our lives where we feel that something is stronger then us and we want to give in. We all have times when we feel like just accepting something and wonder what's so bad about it anyways. But that's when we have a choice. That's when we can stand up and show just how strong we are.


You sound like you know you should stop. You know how, and you want to. That's the hardest part. Perhaps you feel like you need help and support to get you through the hard times. Do you have someone you can talk to about this, family or friend? Draw off their strength and belief in you. And if you want to talk or vent on here, we are always willing to listen.

i agree with caldus, it would be interesting to know why it appeals to you so much. i mean what about it makes you happy? ( besides the fact that it's similar to a drug rush because it causes that rush of dopamine or serotonin in your brasin, causing your pain to be decreased and your euphoria to be increased) i think.., but either way it's a false feeling that your brain creates to make your situation more bearable for your body.

i am a self harmer and i fell the same way as you. i want to stop cutting but also find the urge overwelming. sometimes i do it to prove that i am still here, other times to punish myself, but i also do it because it is like an addiction. when you want to cut, phone up a friend or talk to someone you can trust, this might take your mind off the idea. you can do this, just believe in yourself, and you lots of support if you need it on the forums. good luck and take care.

It just is beautiful. You know how a person who has a tattoo thinks that it's beautiful? Or a piercing? It's the same sort of thing, except it's with pain.


i think it actually has a bit to do with masochism. i love getting pierced, or getting a tattoo done. i find getting something pierced always gives me this natural high, ever before i actually get it done, where as getting tattooed soothes and relaxes me. and when i cut.. sometimes it's to release emotions and pain etc. but sometimes it's just beautiful. the exact shade of the blood, the level of control you have over it. it's also the horomones your body produces kicking in, to give you that natural high, that euphoria.

don't get me wrong though. i hate my scars. for me cutting isn't about the scars. it's about the pain.
