    Cutters-How many do you know?

    I'm not really asking if you agree with cutting or anthing like that, but more so, do you know people that cut?
    -How old were they when they started?
    -Do you know how long they've been doing it?
    -Did they show you when they did it or tell you?
    -Do they still hurt themselves?
    -Are they related to you?

    This is for research for a novel on similar stuff. XD So please be honest and answer the questions if you can.

    I found that five of my friends use to cut, and two never really told anyone. Most of them only did it for a few years, but one almost killed himself recently which led me to thinking about it more for a story. He is 19 now, but said he's been cutting since he was 11. I also found out my little cousin, 13, has been cutting for a year or so. I saw her legs one day when she spent the night with me. It made me want to cry. I myself use to cut as well, but would never want to do it again, nor do I want to see anyone that does it hurt themselves more. I did it for five years and no one knew about it for the longest time. My brother use to cut when he was 14, 15 but he didn't do it for long. I found my sister has started to hurt herself also, though I'm not sure whether it's by cutting or hitting her head. She is 14.

    Come dance in the rain with me, no one is watching.

    God Darkened_Star, you must live in a bad area, and your family must be going thru heavy stuff. I never knew anyone who's done this, man whats up with this generation? I know teen pregnancy and drugs are a big problem, but this issue needs more media attention. I didn't even know about it before i joined this forum. All i knew was ppl cut there wrist to commit suicide, not just for fun or release. Parents need to notice the signs and get their kids help, as this is a mental issue.

    well, my dear..i am a cutter..i have been one since age 12..
    and i know 2 other people, and they started around the same age..we all revealed it to each other one after another, and found our relationships strengthened with this. yes we all still do it. and they are not blood related

    I don't agree with the practice (if you can call it that), and I concider it a severe problem with someone's head if they think that they need to physicly harm themselves in that manner.

    This is not a healthy practice, and those who do do it should seek help, since there is most likely a larger problem at the root of the issue that you might not even be aware of.

    Enough of this. Cutting is a severe mental disorder. If you think that mutilating your own body fixes, helps or "feels" good or what ever your justification may be, you need help.

    I'm closing this.
