you have to tell yourself you need to let the scars heal before you start again. than once they heal you know it took a long time and you wont want to do it again. throw out all your razor blades. lock knives in a knife drawer or cupboard. use shaving razors for shaving ONLY. Keep telling yourself you can do it! When I cut, I would have these horrible days when I just couldnt go on. I looked up suicidal stories on YouTube and found inspiration. I havent cut since!
you should try to find the source of your cutting. Target that and try to find the solution. I understand that it's easier said then done but maybe you need a better counselor. It's good that you're trying to get help though. I'll keep you in my prayers, good luck!

It sounds like you want to stop which is a great start. Obviously if you do not cut, then you will not cut. But I think it's more complicated than me just telling you to summon the willpower to not do it. I think it will help if you look at the specific reasons why you cut, and weigh them against the consequences of cutting. Pain, scars, permanent injury, infection, disability and even death. I would also suggest that you speak to a psychiatrist about this. Good luck.
It takes your mind off of the emotional pain. But then again so does Singing, Dancing, being busy and spending time with family, friends and loved one's. Just because one person or one predicament/event happened that didn't go your way. Means The Rest should too.
Know that life IS hard and sinking wouldn't really help you. We all have the opportunity, the chance, and the choice to be better or to stay put. Know that bad times do happen and it is up to us on how we look at it and learn from is as much as we can to make ourself better and not let those bad things happen again.
Also I found out myself that helping others, sharing your story, inspiring and helping people get through their problems help a lot. Find and Pursue your happiness. Do what you love, what you're passionate about and eventually with the bumps and bruises will come experience and joy knowing that you lived your life doing what's good and what you love.
The Joy is in the journey and experience not really on the goal itself.
Sweetie, I'm going to be real with you, are you ready? In the the spirit world, which is more real than the one we can see with our physical eyes, there are two ways a demon can attach itself to you - one is if you've believed a lie, and since I believe that's what you're dealing with, I won't go into the other. You need to figure out what that lie is that you are believing and renounce it (disown it, don't claim it as your own) out loud, and then tell it to leave in Jesus name. In order to keep that lie from coming back, you have to replace it with TRUTH. The truth is what God says about you. Get a Bible, open it up and start reading all about why God wants you as His daughter and how He paid the ultimate price for you so that you don't have to go through this. No amount of the kind of counseling you are getting now can do what God can do.
Oh please do not do that. No one here wants you to do it. But please think about why you are cutting, is it bullying? No friends? Or is it just a habit? Try to find what makes you happy in life; a person, an object, or even a sport. Just try to take your mind off of it. Right now you are trapped, almost in side a box. Try to be happy, sit up straight and be confident in yourself. Good luck, and best wishes. I hope you succeed!
