Seek medical attention. I know it can be hard to stop, but you need to. you are endangering your health.

Talk to your parents and get a psychiatrist and therapist. (And just 'cause you go to a psychiatrist doesn't mean you're crazy!) Sometimes medications can really help. I used to cut too. Does it get you kind of high? I did it when I was stressed out and it helped me calm down, but there are many better ways to deal with your anxiety! [Continued on my next reply]

The last time I attempted suicide, I used a steak knife to cut a dash gash on the top of my left wrist. I almost reached the tendons and it took 12 stitches. To me, depression is physically equivalent of drowning alone in a deep, dark, cold sea. Even though I get teased over my scar and most people find it ugly, I will keep my scar for the rest of my life. Looking at it reminds me of how I survived one of the worst -and most underestimated- diseases out there.

Anyway, the answer is much, much more complicated than "just quit". Telling a cutter to quit is like telling an alcoholic or smoker to go cold-turkey. It ain't happening. I've been battling my depression for years, so believe me, it's a long, agonizing road to recovery, but it's one that's still well worth it!

Your family/friends love you no matter what and would more than likely do anything to help you. You have a rightful place on this planet! You deserve to be happy! Seek help now before you end up cutting your wrists like I did!
