Yohann, no one should judge you.
Yet glorifying this form of escapism isn't helping us talk them out of it....


Ps. Skydiving is sooo not like cutting, lol


I'm not trying to glorify it, I total agree that if your cutting your self because your depressed or whatever you should seek help. If your cutting your self because of different reasons such has ritual or art or spiritual by all means knock your self out :D

The Skydiving is a subjective term I use to compare cutting from some that as experience with it vs someone that does not understand it. Its like me going around calling people that likes to skydive crazy but at the same I never even been in a air plane

Sky diving isn't entirely non similar, but it still is a form of playing with your life/danger, I'll give you that.
Yet, I who have done it safely and properly instructed, no longer see it as holding dangers, but as fun, yet a parachute can always go wrong.
The essential difference lays in the fact that sky diving, even to escapists, is more of a one time deal, whereas cutting is an easy access,
hence easy to overindulge. At 700$ a drop, you can't decide on a whim to jump daily.
I believe cutters, in excess to being escapists, lack discipline when it comes to the adrenaline they release during a cut and want more, since the initial need comes from an unforgettable hurt. Hence addiction....

So, i was once a cutter, but thank god i'm not anymore. It's seriously stupid, and im sooo proud i'm not anymore. once you are all done cutting yourself, you'll realize what i mean. I dont have to hide any more scars, i dont have to keep to myself anymore, yeah it may feel good because it helps your depression or what the fuck ever you have. ever heard of depression pills? quit trying to get attention and put the damn blade down.

I really can't imagine why you want to cut yourself. I, myself, don't like pain one bit. And it's a pain in the ass to get it healed again.

I would be scared to even consider doing that... first thing I would think of is about the blade imma use... is it clean or I might cut too deeply... in short, I would be paranoid.. looolll~ XD so is it's one way of taking away that sadness/emptiness for some people, it certainly wont work for me!!! xDDD

I'm gonna have to second this.

I realize that it supposedly releases endorphines and whatnot, but I CERTAINLY don't think that getting cuts, scrapes, broken bones, etc etc actually feels good! It makes me wonder if there is something inherently different about the neural wiring of a masochist over a "normal" person.

Cutting is such a touchy subject for me. Especially when it's minors who can't readily access things like psychologists, psychiatrists, anti-depressants, and are worried about their parent's judgement and/or punishment, the judgement of their peers, etc.

I have cut in the past. Sometimes it was something like a heart with two swords stabbing through it, another was TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES. Clearly I had some issues related to my dependency, self-esteem, insecurity, and depression. I needed help. I wanted help. My mom knew I cut and knew I was depressed. From 12 years old - 16. I knew that it was a ticket to get Baker Acted (Involuntarily institutionalized) and that's what I wanted at the time. I had no idea how to deal with my problems and emotions. I didn't know how to deal with conflict, drama, stress, pain, fear, peer pressure, confusion, etc... I had no coping mechanisms, really, so I turned to unhealthy ones that were easy to access and right in front of my face.
Anyway, I stopped doing it just before finding out I was pregnant, and then vowed never to do so again. Still, I enjoy piercings and tattoos and I'll stick to those two.

I don't wanna start a flame war or anything, I would like to share my perspective on cutting.

I been cutting since I was a teen and stopped in my early 20's and I wear my scars proud. I do not expect many people to understand what I am going to say unless you're a true masochist . I not gonna lie I enjoy pain, when people think OUCH! I think it hurt's so good... I have gotten over 20+ piercings in my life and plan on getting some scaring work done in the near future. You can call me a idiot, you can call me EMO or say ever but to me pain is my yang to pleasure, you will never truly know pleasure until you can contrast it with pain.

There is a huge number of reason why people cut for most it is a way to mask deep emotional pain with physical pain. For some it is ritualistic such as rite of man hood among tribes in Africa. It can also be spiritual (remember slias in da vinci code?). Cutting can also be a form of art (Dont click on link if your squeamish http://www.rongarza.com/Pages/ScarPortfoliomaybe.html). If you want a better understanding of cutting ask someone that has multiple tattoos why they got it and it will perhaps shed some light on the topic of SI.

No matter what reasons you cut the out come is the same everyone searches for the euphoric state of mind when your body is under extreme pain. This is one of the reason why so many people get addicted to getting piercings and tattoos. When your body release adrenaline and endorphins it feels like you are beyond this world ;)

This is one of those things where you have to experience your self, kinda like sky diving

I just want to bring awareness that cutting isn't always about dealing with pain but rather a free state of mind and bliss.


Well said, Yohan.

I was a cutter back when i was sixteen and i stopped when i was 18 i did it to escape the pain of my life my brother was an over demanding brute who would reticule me or beat me any chance he got so i had to file assault charges on him.and i cut to escape the fact that both of my parents were heavy drunkards and drug addicts that could care less about one another and wanted to get divorced and tried to so many times i cant count them. but i stopped cutting because i knew hurting my self would not change anything it would just leave scars so i got my shit together and started seeing a shrink and i got on anti anxiety and depression meds. but those things made me into an emotionless zombie and the shrink did not help at all.so here i am now still crazy as fuck but one good thing that came out of that mess i think cutting is for retarded people now and when i look back i laugh at how stupid i was for doing it.and i regret not getting my mom off her meds cause she died of an od in November and her shrink and doctors would not take her off of them no matter how many times me and my dad and bro tried to make them oh and they all told her the pills would kill her if she did not get off of them so now i hate all doctors of any kind and pills of any kind because doctors care more about money then human life.
