i dont know how to stop. - March 15th 2011, 11:38 AM

I have been cutting for about three years now. sometimes i can go weeks without doing it, and other times i do it several times a day. im seeing proffessionals, but they don't seem to help.... i prefer talking to friends, but my parents have confiscated my phone, so i can't get in contact with them. i had this friend who was really supportive, but my parents really hate him and have banned me from speaking to him. i feel completely alo with noone to talk to.
i would like to stop cutting, but i cant. every time i do it, i go deeper than the last time. i worried ill end up in hospital or something... then my parents will be so ashamed.
iv tried to do other things instead ofcutting, but none of them seem to work.

I know you say you have tried other ways to prevent yourself from cutting, but have you tried putting a rubber band around your wrist. Instead of cutting, you just flick that. I am pretty sure that you can quit. I think it's an accomplishment in itself, that you are able to quit for weeks at a time. Everyday that you don't cut, is an accomplishment. As long as you can remember that, you should be able to continue on with your journey on trying to quit. Try writing a journal, or drawing. Doing someone active, in order to take your mind off it. I can relate, as I used to be a heavy cutter myself. I just want to help you as well. We can get through this. You can always talk about your problems with us. I can understand that quitting isn't easy. So don't be afraid to talk about it as well.

no, i think ill try that
i do alot of drawing and painting, it does help abit, i like to unleash my anger painting scary creatures :L...but then just as it seems to be working, i get frustrated and cut again. i kept a dirary, but when i ran away, my mom found it and read it. i lost all my privacy, and i dont have enough trust to start a new one, i know it sounds silly but i feel like if i write my feelings down, somehow people will access them, and then i have nothing to myself
sometimes i stop, and i feel really good about it, but then i look at my wrists/arms/legs and see the scars, and i just feel so ugly and bad about myself that i cut even more. its like a vicious cycle i cant get out of

Why don't you write A journal here on TH? And if you want you can delete it after and as Vibrant said you can try the rubber band. You CAN get through this =)

Everyone has to date a few jerks so they know when they have found a true gem<3

Ya I know ironic that someone named dark and depressed is helping people
