    I started cutting when I was 13. I'm just curious, I suppose, about everyone else.

    About 23 I think, but I had thought about doing it a long time before that. Of course, I'm sure that I had harmed myself in other ways, all throughout my life.

    Started at about 13/14. In school (a German language class I think) I dismantled a pencil sharpener and was surprised at how easy it was to actually draw blood.

    First time I ever did it, I was 11. Self harm addiction didn't start until I was 13.

    15. picked razors apart.
    was like counting to ten when angry.
    except the counting to ten didn't work.
    so cutting it was.
