Hey all, I'm Rayyn. I was a cutter and still sort of am, but I once made a thread in the opinions section that ended up as a support group, so I thought I'd make a thread specific to help self-harmers to stop self-harming. If you're interested, start posting!
My story: I started scratching around the beginning of freshman year to help me cope with being forced into recovery for an eating disorder. Later I met a girl who I absolutely loved (and still love) who cut words into her skin and so I started using blades. Now I'm not blaming that on her, it was completely my choice. Anyway, I try not to cut anymore, but I still collect blades. I'll repost this if I find my post in the other thread that can tell my story better. If you don't want to share your story you don't have to.
your not the only one :3 i was a compolsive cutter and the scares are all over me, kinda embarrassing when my partener annd friends aasky why.... but i have my reasons, something terrible happened to me when i was 8 and something happened over the last year that baught back old problems and i tryed killing myself several times :( but i got the gelp i needed and im now fine... to stop the cutting i used to do this thing called the butterfly project :3 when ever you ahve the need to cut, draw a butterfly somewhere on your body with a loved ones name under neath it, and when you cut, you have killed your loved one... you cant scrub the drawing off you have to let it fade :D ... works a trat :3 i used to walk around with butterflies all over me :) on my legs and arms and i did this cute one one my neck :) hahahah people would rather see that your trying to get through it rather than pain...
I'm so happy for you! C: The butterfly project is awesome, but I don't really make mine. I have too much inclination towards loving living creatures, even I they're just "living" creatures. XD
thank you <3!
Of course. C: *hugs*
*hug back and smiles :3*
how do you quit cutting????? i have burnn scarss & cut scarss up and down my arms............ im tired of mt friends worrying about me, i hate making them worry, but i cant seem to stop. i normally only burnn my arms when i am really mad or my drepression/pyro-tendacies get really bad................ so how do you stop?
Well, there's the butterfly project... Rules of it: 1) draw a butterfly when you feel the urge to harm. 2) don't scrub it off, let it fade naturally 3) name it after a friend who wants you to stop, if you wish 4) if you harm with a butterfly on you, it dies. All butterflies on you die if you harm once. And if you ever need support, this thread is always here for you. *hugs*
Fiery: There are other methods too, like self-scaring and a lot others. You can check them out if you visit thread named cutting/scratching in Personal Opinions sections.
Ironically enough, that was the other thread I was talking about when I posted this. Feel free to join it, I would love to talk to you more!

It's called cutting/scratching and is usually on the first page of the personal opinion section.
