    Although I have cut myself before without knowing what I'm cutting myself for, I have never cut myself for fun. I don't even understand how you think that cutting could in any possible way be "fun." It's not for shits and giggles, it's an addiction.

    I cut because I'm depressed & it's just something that I do but I definitely don't do it for fun ! & never will because once you start it's so hard to stop !

    Well, to me cutting must be one of the most beautifies things in that world. I cut myself for pain and how the feeling goes throw my body. feels like I'm doing crack or something hardcore. I love seeing blood on me and thinking about this makes me happy. It makes me laugh when I see people in pain. I get a kick out of it. I love this cutting myself to me its my personal drug and I love the high and rush. I can say so much about this and how I feel and think but although I don't do it to try to kill myself or anything. I do it because I love the feel and the way I think... Well I can say about it. The only person who should know my feeling is myself =)

    i cut for different reasons.
    sometimes i cut because i got problems (depression, self hate, etc)
    and sometimes i don't know why i cut.
    i discovered i like the pain.
    if i cut for no reason but i just do, then i must be cutting for fun.
    most of my cuts now seems to have no reason, and i am enjoying the pain and scabs and scars. unlike most people i'm not hiding them either.
    i think there's something really wrong with me, i must be sick and i must be a freak... heck i am, it's on my arm someplace.

    I had cut myself, still do in fact. But NEVER for fun. I always had a legit reason to cut myself, such as stress, loneliness, or embarrassment. And I don't cut myself just because I'm sad. I was confused as to why cutting yourself can ever be addicting. But I realized that anything that feels good can be addictive.

    in coming up to my mid teens finished high school going into collage. I have cut myself recently I haven't shared this with anyone I know. not even those closed to me. I don't know why I did cut myself all I know is I'm a bit depressed and I don't see meaning in things. Is it odd or wrong to cut myself out of boredom?

    I used to cut myself and still do as I am a young teen, BUT there is no way u could be doing this for fun! I cut myself to help make the pain go away. I also do it because I would rather hurt myself then someone else. It can also be a lot easier then telling other people sometimes. I never used to cry or tell anyone how I felt or showed my pain on the outside. This is also why I used to cut myself. I was sick of everything and wanted all the pain to stop and I had considered suicide BUT some how when I told a friend that helped. She ended up talking my out of it. Cutting yourself is a very serious thing and should not be considered fun. People just like me do/did it because it was the only way to get away from the real world smetimes and because of all those bullies out there. Over the years I have learnt a couple of thing thanks to those bullies an just remember to not always listen to what other people think of you because it doesn't matter!!!! PEACE OUT PEEPS!!!

    I understand that every person has their reasons for cutting, but no reason is any more valid than the next. There are no "real" and "just for fun" cutters; a cutter is a cutter, and it's not a competition. Either way you look at it, it is, as people have said, simply an addiction, whether in desperation and depression, or because you damn well felt like it. Diagnosed with a form of Dissociative Identity Disorder some years back in aftermath of an attempted extreme overdose, I was hospitalized for nearly a month before they decided that I could leave to go home. My ex-boyfriend took all medications away from me, including my prescription for the recurring migraines, and essentially told me that it was all my fault, and made sure to inform me of how much of a disappointment I was to him. Believe me, once you've already given up once, only to develop a very serious disorder as a result, and are then told that it's all your fault, you tend to try to find ways to cope with what's left in your life. And maybe that happens to be through taking control of what you have left. In my case, I could take control over my pain on the outside. Personally, I could never see myself cutting out of fun, since developing seizures usually inhibit your ability to not ram a razor blade deep into you...

Personally, I could never see myself cutting out of fun, since developing seizures usually inhibit your ability to not ram a razor blade deep into your forearm, and be able to to do anything to get it out.

    With calming music in a relaxing atmosphere, I find it very comforting to take the wheel of my senses, and steer myself in the direction I want to go. I may not be able to fix myself completely on the inside, but through cutting I have found a way to find myself again, and heal through taking control of my body. For anyone who does cut out of depression, I understand how you could feel like it's necessary; how it could be an escape, but there is one thing that you must always remember..

    No matter how bad it seems, there's always someone right now who has it worse, and they still find a way. Never let cutting escalate like I did. I let it take control of me, and only now, 4 1/2 years after the attempted suicide, am I finally starting to come to terms with what I have done, and how it would have effected those around me, despite what I thought at the time.

    Even if you think not, there's always someone in the world who loves you for who you are, and couldn't imagine life without you. For your own sake, and for the sake those who care about you, if you don't break your cutting addiction, at least talk to someone about it, or your depression if necessary. I didn't, and there i was with massive memory lapses and frequent seizures, not knowing who I was anymore, or who else I was, and a lost sense of my person, which, in this girl's opinion, was a fate worse than death.

    I don't see how people could do this for fun. I started when I was 12 and I instantly got addicted. For me its about the adrenaline rush, hearing my skin tearing apart and watching the blood flow freely (which is a lot easier to do now that I am on blood thinners). I am now 23 and I still cannot stop. I have to be really careful these days so my daughter doesn't see them. She is old enough that she would probably ask questions. This is NOT the life I want for her! Or anyone else for that matter. I know what its like not to have anyone to talk to about it. My mom also put me in counseling when she found out I was cutting. Luckily for me my best friend had started too. I saw the marks on her arm one day and then we started cutting together. It made it easier to deal with the pain and the real reason(s) why we were cutting. For anyone that needs help with this or just wants someone to listen please feel free to email me. I know what its like to go trough this alone and be told "theres something wrong with you". I'm here to listen or to give advice or both...whatever you need!

    Sometimes when I cut I'm not really sure why I do it. But it's never for fun. It's more of an addiction. And my friends are always checking my wrists, which just makes me learn how to hind it better.

    I cut myself for fun once, now, years later, I started again. I also hide all the signs, no one but my best friend knows I do it and since she found out, she's been real peed off at me. She blames herself for my self harming. Please, if your reading this, don't do it, it ruins everything and once you start, its hard to stop. Its an addiction and it takes over. I enjoy cutting but I cut my upper thigh so no one knows anything. I enjoy pain because I don't usually feel it. Im usually numb but then I cut and I feel alive again.

    I cut myself, I suppose it's just letting my emotions out due to the fact I never cry and keep all my thoughts to myself. I like the buzz off cutting myself and testing my own body to see what pain i can take. Cutting isn't my special though, i prefer burns VIA lighter/Cigerette.

    I just wanted to let cutters know that it does get better I promise. It may be something that helps you cope with pain and or sadness as of now but go seek help even if you think it wont work I promise you it will help you atleast a little bit or fully. Imagine this in your prom dress or in your wedding dress what will you do?........ What if you want to wear shorts or a tank top or tshirt without a sweatshirt or jacket or sweater. If you want to get rid of your cuts they do sell different types of things that will fade your scars. If you dont cut never start you will get addicted and possibly never be able to stop until you seek help from a prof person. Or if you realize that you need to stop it isnt really helping you to cut. just remember it always gets better.

    Its not really for fun but I can't seem to get over the need to cut. It's become an addiction and ruled my life since I was 10. I know I shouldn't do it but I can't help not to. I see my therapist every one to two weeks but I found myself cutting my legs to get away with it... I can't help it but it's just some way to deal with the pain of everything. It's the only thing that makes me feel alive.

    I started cutting at age 15, and I've stopped many times. I started seriously cutting at age 18, in my second semester of college because of stress. Cutting isn't fun. I now cut because emotionally, mentally and physically, I can't feel anything. That's how it seems. I have marks up and down my arm and when I've asked for help, my mom dismissed it and told me to stop or I'd be sent to a mental hospital. I'm sure my family suspects something is wrong, but they don't say anything out loud.
    Cutting is a problem. It can also become an obsessive compulsive disorder. For me, it is just that but also a part of manic depression. Cutting hurts everyone, including family members and the person doing it.

    I dont think anyone just cuts themselves for fun. yes, some may like the feeling, because sometimes the physical pain can help the emotional pain less. And then there are those who can find themeselves cutting themselves, and not understand why.

    I cut myself, and I don't consider that I'm doing it for fun. It's just a coping mechanism for me. It's all about giving myself something else to be distracted about rather than the deep psychological pain I am feeling. I guess my parents recent divorce and the fact that I have been pushed aside and become almost invisible in my family is the reason I started. That and because I have no one to talk to, or who is willing to listen; that could also be why I started. I don't want people to know, although a guy at work saw my wrist and another boy I know guessed it, but neither or them seemed particularly worried or cared about my self-harm and for that I am greatful. I want to say that I will stop this habit but I have been cutting since I was 11, I'm almost 20 now and I don't think I can stop. I rely on the peace it gives me too much.

    im always here to listen and care, so if you need to talk about it, you can always talk to me. i have recently started and well i actually find it better to talk about why you do it and what your feeling because it really does help, i have this friend, he is a good listener and he helps me get through it. i know i only recently started but soon hopefully i will have stopped because of the help my friend is giving me. so I am here if you need to talk :)
