I have been self cutting since my head injury over 2 yrs ago. This last time it was deep enough to need 8 stitches. I am NOT suicidal but the limitations fromt the injury have left me with not the best coping skills. I do see numerous doctors but I would like to know how I can stop this. I am scarred for life and want to stop. Thanks.

The alternative to cutting is to experience the feelings you are supressing with your cutting. In my opinion, cutting has nothing to do with suicide. You cut yourself because it stimulates the reward center in the brain and suppresses psychological pain. SSRI medicines, Naltrexone and psychotherapy can help you.

It is as hard to stop cutting as it is to quit smoking. Throw away all the razor blades and force yourself to accept your negative feelings. More about how to learn to accept your negative feelings.
