    so i was chatting to my mates today about people we know that have cut them self, and we why trying to figure out why i know people say that it helps them when there upset or angry but there are much better ways to cope with things. what are your thoughts on this and have you ever hurt yourself if so how and why?

    No. I'm terrible with pain. I have the lowest pain threshold ever.

    Never have, never will. Don't understand why anyone would.

    Never intentionally hurt myself , it's ridiculous. No problem with other people doing it to themselves though , if they want to cut them self , then hopefully natural selection will take care of them.

    I assume that harming yourself does for some people the same that alcohol does for the majority.
    I'd never hurt my self, not conciously at least.

    I knew to cut myself hardly and badly...But not because I was depressed or something like that, it was just the thing I did with my girlfriend..It's shame I never took any pictures, it look badly..

    *I guessed where you got your inspiration*

    EDIT:

    I don't, I know 2 friends whom do. But when I get pissed off I tend to punch myself in the face. Don't ask [​IMG]

    Hurting yourself is a bad way of dealing with stress. My method of dealing with stress is masturbation. Much better than cutting, don't you think?

    Generally no, but I bang my fists into the register/desk thingy at work sometimes like I was on a drum, and then I wonder why my knuckles and stuff are pink afterwards. >_>
