    I want to cut so bad, and the only way to make it all stop is to cut. Images play in my head all day, images of me cutting, of all the blood, of deep cuts and scars. I haven't cut in a while, but the urge to do it is so strong, I don't know what to do. All I want is the movie that plays in my head to stop. Who could blame me for cutting, if I did? It's the only thing that works.

    And in addition, you could try to replace that video with one that puts you off self-harm. It could be show your future if it was self-harm free or it could show peoples' reactions to seeing the scars (your family and freinds maybe?). I know how difficult it is to not cut when you're in the habit but please try. Being with people can help if you feel up to it too.
