hey Cassidy, cutting is a hard habbit to break, if you want to stop thats great! if you dont feel like you can then thats okay to. One of the main reasons for cutting deeper than normal is because you are extremly emotional when you do, you are caught up in the moment and cut deeper than is necessary because you want to absorb the pain quicker than you usually would. Generaly it only takes a small scratch for the brain to register the pain but if your emotions are overriding it then it will take longer, so in response you are cutting deeper. When you feel like cutting you should try to think to yourself to slow down take a deep breath and think if you really want this? sit down, have a tea or a coffee or anything to get your mind away from the urge and just breath.
of you ever wanna talk just PM
