  1. I haven't actually cut yet but I've attempted. I tried with scissors last year and then I got caught and havent tried it since...until today. I was really depressed earlier and I took one of my keys and just started trying to break the skin. I never succeeded. I wrote something though after I stopped trying. It disturbs me a bit. Does anyone have any suggestions or alternatives to cutting? I would be grateful.

    Drawing on your wrist with red pen sometimes helps. Otherwise, if you just want distractions, there are plenty of things you can find on the internet, though I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post PM me.

    Avoid the red pen thing because you'll just end up breaking your skin and getting some type of ink poison or something. My favorite thing to do to avoid it is squeeze ice cubes. However, please take my advice and never start cutting. When I first started I didn't break the skin either but as my depression grew I started cutting deeper and deeper.

    best advice is-DONT DO IT-and i know its so much easier said than done.
    u think u can do it once and then stop and things will be fine..but u wont be able to stop, and things wont be fine.
    try wearing an elastic band and plucking it whenever u feel like doing something..that helps.
    also been told that holding ice cubes works. call a friend, do something u enjoy. anything
    and ifu ever need someone to talk to PM me
