    Do burns scar worse than cuts? And which lasts longest?

    I use to cut, but I had to stop because people started noticing my scars on my arms. I can't cover up them because i like to live an active lifestyle which dosen't include long sleeves.
    And i just got a lighter and I found a new use for it.

    Cutting and burning both scar. How bad the scar is gonna be depends on how badly you've injured yourself, and how you treat it. The best way to get no scars at all is just to stop SI'ing... but that really only happens when you're ready to stop.

    I don't think anyone's going to give you "advice" on how to SI with no/minimal scarring here, because we don't want you to hurt yourself. You said you gave up cutting before. What makes you want to hurt yourself now? I hope you can put the lighter out of your mind, and remember how you got through your time without cutting, use that to help you not SI now...:smile: God, I hope that made a vague bit of sense. Sorry about the ramble.

    Yeah, it all depends on the severity of the cut and/or burn.
