Why exactly is cutting bad?

Report as

Cutting what? A pizza? A cake? Another person? A Panda? Yourself? Assuming you mean cutting oneself, it is commonly used as a way to release emotional pain through physical pain. But causing harm to oneself is usually never good.Also....Death is possible.

Look at it this way. People who cut themselves do it because they are hurting on the inside, right? Is hurting on the outside going to make it any better?

1. Hurting oneself is dangerous. It sets up a depressive mindset, and normally derives from the same thing.
2. you can die from it if you cut the wrong spot.
3. Never give up on your life.

Cutting is bad because it is an unhealthy behavior. There are healthier ways to deal with emotional pain, such as exercise or therapy. If you are in so much pain that you feel you must cut, you should try to deal with your problems, instead of ultimately fueling them with cutting.

It may be stress-relieving, but do keep in mind they call it 'Self-Harm' for a reason. It's harm to your body and it's not a good addiction to have. There are some pretty bad things that could happen from it.

Aside from the potential to cause serious injury if you cut too deep (or cut in the wrong spot), in theory nothing - I mean it's your body, if that's what makes you happy, that's your choice.

The main issue though, is that typically if you are cutting, then there are underlying issues at stake - depression, bullying, self-esteem, abuse, etc... And in most cases if you get rid of those underlying issues - or at least deal with them head on, then there won't be a need to cut. Plus, most of those things can be dealt with - either by talking to a trusted adult, or through counseling or medication (when necessary). So cutting is usually just not the best way to handle the situation.

Is it just me, or are you looking for attention...?
It is bad for completely obvious reasons. Harming anyone is bad and "anyone" includes YOU. You could end up cutting too deep and then there is no going back. Not to mention how ugly the scars are (unless you are one of those people who uses them as a little trophy that they have more problems than everyone else). You could also say it is a complete waste of time- mutilating yourself will not make your problems just disappear.

Thanks but I just need some help convincing my friend to stop cutting....

Next time, it would be a good idea to not lead people on to thinking you are the one cutting. That could give them the wrong impression of you.
Report as
I never said I was.
Report as
I know, I did not say you directly said it. But if you do not provide any details, you can not expect people to assume that the question is not referring to you. When someone asks a question, most people do not automatically think "Oh, she's just asking this for a friend".
Report as
No, the info is for me so I can tell it to a friend. I don't really care what other people think.
Report as
I only said it is not a good idea. If you don't care, you don't care.

Well bleed out, of course. But yet if you don't do it deeply, yah I'd wonder the same thing....but remember it is self-mutilation.

it opens up blood vessels and that makes blood spill out so if you do it a lot you can bleed to death

Its just an unconventional way of dealing with things. Doesn't mean it doesn't help. But it's so risky.. You never know where it'll take you.

It hurts more than it helps
Report as
The pain is what helps usually. That's why people do it. The physical pain is the desired outlet to distract yourself from whatever pain you feel mentally.

I have heard that afterwards people just feel guilty about it.

Depends...
Some people do minor cuts, just to forget some pain.
Others attempt to slice open arteries and try to bleed to death....
Either way, you lose a lot of bl00d, and you can die from blood loss..

There are many reasons why it it bad
1. You can develop a bad infection.
2. Depending on how deep you self-harm, it can cause excessive bleeding or you can hit a vein.
3. It is very addictive.
4. You will have unwanted scars.
I am a recovering self-mutilation, so i know how hard it is to stop or keep it controlled. Just take small steps and i wish you the best of luck.

Because cutting your wrists and arms can leave scars and if you hit the wrong vein, you can die. Also, you're hurting yourself intentionally which means that you need mental help.
