    Hello all, I was just thinking to my self recently, how many people on the site do generally self harm?

    I'm not ashamed to say that I do, and just wonder who else does?

    you dont have to leave a comment, but answer the poll please...

    Yeah, I do, but unlike you, I'm ashamed to admit it, to anyone other than internet people.

    I use it as a coping method when I'm suicidal. It's a last resort before anything really ugly. I'm very open about the scars and practice--it's part of who I am. Plus it gives me artistic street cred... now if only I get put in a hospital...

    Bad habit though. Like smoking or drinking.

    I'm not ashamed of what i have done and yes it is a copy mechanism, but i fail to see how it amounts to be "artistic"?

    But saying that, each to there own!!!:blink:

    I used to think self harm was just cutting, but now I see many ways that I self harm which do not involve cutting, so I voted yes.

    I do an I am ashamed to say I do and I has been getting more serious. My scars upset me and I have been judged by them.

    I think they were saying more that they aren't ashamed to tell people why they have them some people do beiw it as artistic when you explain to them like the depth of emotion you felt and so on...yeah :blink:

    I do, for about 16 years now... but I hide my scars from anyone... Still, I admit it to anyone who asks... Very confuse.

    I have been doing it for three years this christmas. About the same length i've been on the site xD
    I don't particularly like it, and feel ashamed of the scars after, and it's a b**ch hiding them from parents and cousins and such like. But its a realese, and it's an addicted and i can't stop right now. Can't or won't? Hmm...

    It never helped me nearly as much as alcohol and vanity.

    I realised once I had made the poll that I should of put an "not any more option." But it was to late once i realised.

    I will try to change the poll so it has an extra option
