    I was about to turn 16. I remember that I started cutting myself with scissors because I had way of calling my (ex) boyfriend. I was fucked up in the head.

    i was about 15 or 16 when i cut first, it freaked me out a lot, so i didn't do it again till about a year and a half ago..so i suppose you could say 15!

    I was 12... during a History lesson... I went to the toilet... I fell in love with it, it helped so much. Now nearly 17 and still doing it... Sometimes I want to stop, other time's I feel like if I did stop, everything would fall into further darker depths... Make sense? Not really... =/

    I was 20 first "spell", went 2 1/2 years then did it again for a while, then went another 2 years, did it, then 1 year. I am 27 now and i hope for a week...a month or maybe even 2 in between "spells". been like that now for almost 2 years.

    Your poll needs to start a little earlier, I think. I first cut myself with a straight razor when I was in the 4th grade...
