Hey (:
If you're looking to stop... I suggest that you slowly lessen the amount that you cut. And to achieve that you can use alternatives to SH.
Here is a list of some alternatives that you can try:

I hope that everything is okay with you <3
& It's really nice of you to offer your support/advice to people (:

Wow, I have to say you are really strong for coming out and saying that you self-medicate. That's so good, that you are trying your hardest to beat this, and it doesn't happen overnight. This isn't something that you can just stop in a day, or a week or month even it takes time. Like the person above said, try working your way to lesson how much you cut, maybe also look back and see what makes you cut. Ask yourself why you are cutting? Is it because, you love the feeling? Does it release stress? Or are you dealing with something at home that is making you resolve to cutting. There's always reasons and a story for why we do things. I commend you for wanting to beat this and working your way to trying to get better. I also think maybe you should hang out with friends and just make yourself in an happy environment so you won't think about doing that as much, you get me? I don't know your background story so. I'm really not trying to make assumptions or anything, but anyway I really hope you get better. I hate for you to hurt yourself, you can beat the odds. Don't let it take over you, fight out till the end.

well its getting better now i draw what i want to cut instead of doing it and i helps sometimes i haven't cut for about a week now but i wanna stop i just love the endorphins that are released and it makes me feel good and i think it was for attention now its a addiction that i don't want like but i do and i i didn't go to the docs coz i got better and i wanna do it again so bad and there's some shit going around school and that might just push me to far and i might cut again
