Unlike what most people seem to think these days, Cutting is not brought on by 'Emo' music, or a cultural fad. People do it to cope with depression just like people use alcohol to cope with depression and they need help. So next time you hear of someone purposefully harming themselves, think twice before you call them "a whiny emo fag"
Pompous ass #1: "Sallys cutting herself!!"

Pompous ass #2: "Wow shes probably just a whiny emo bitch that wants attention."

Sally: *cries*

Good Sumerian: "Hey dickheads leave her alone! Shes going through a hard time and she needs help." *comforts sally*

Cutting is when you take a sharp object (razor blade, saftey pin, knife, push pin, etc.) and cut a part of your body with it. It doesn't have to me on your arms/wrists and you don't have to be emo. It's often a result of depression. It does make you feel a whole lot better(I know from experience) and "preps", "Goths', "Jocks", and all these other little clicks are capible of doing it,
it's not just the emos. It's really addictive. It's hard to stop and hard to control.
You can't make somebody stop cutting if they don't want to. It's not that easy to just say "stop cutting" and tomorrow it'll be all better,
it some times takes years to completely stop cutting.

1. Cutting is when you use a sharp object, such as a knife or razor blade, to cut yourself.
Cutting is not a 'Fad' or a 'Fashion Statement', I have done it, it's much more.
I was bullied nearly every day and I couldn't take it. I did it because I was depressed.
It's not for attention, and it's hard to stop once you start.
2. Cutting an object, such as paper with a knife or scissors.
I'm not giving an example that relates to Cutting (def. 1), think of one yourself, you're not stupid.

The the teacher said 'Start cutting out your picture, then,' and the girl said 'Ok,' (def. 2)

Cutting is the practice of cutting one's body with a sharp object to relieve emotional pain. It is a common misconception that cutters are suicidal. This is usually not the case. Most people who resort to cutting are in a position where they feel unhappy to the point where self-harm is all that helps. Cutting is not restricted to any one stereotype, age group, color, wealth, or religion. It is effective, but dangerous. I am struggling with it right now, and I can tell you that it is incredibly difficult to quit once you've done it. I would not recommend it to anyone, although it may seem rewarding. I and most of my friends have been dealing with it for some time now and it has yet to solve any of our emotional problems. In fact, most of us are worse off now than when we started. But if you have already started, I noticed that there are some suggestions in this section of Urban Dictionary on how to quit. I recommend that you try them. Who knows, maybe it'll help.
Some person: "Did you see that girl? She's always cutting and her life isn't even that bad! She must be emo."

Me: "Since when did you have to emo to cut? You don't have any idea what's going through her head, so don't judge her like that."

Well, Since most of the info is covered here already, I'll recap. Sometimes the emotional pain can be too much. Sometimes you just can't cope with it all. Cutting offers a brief, if effective, relief. By causing shallow lacerations in the flesh, one releases natural endorphins into the blood which can ease pain or cause uplifting feelings. Many people who suffer from depression or single instances of strong emotional trauma resort to cutting as a way to escape the pain. Regardless of the chemical properties of self-inflicted injury, the fact of the matter is that if you have strong physical pain, then your emotional/mental stresses seem lessened due to the human brain's lack of multitasking capabilities. There are quite a few misconceptions circulating about "cutters" and the like. Many are attributed to being "emo fags," but in most cases such is not the truth. While it is true that many people in depressive moods tend to gravitate towards music that can convey the feelings that they are experiencing, Not all people who listen to such music are cutters, or even depressed. People who resort to cutting aren't "insane" or "unstable" because of this, although people who ARE unstable may cut themselves. Another misconception is that cutters are merely seeking attention. While this might be the case in some situations, it's not very common at all. Who would willingly inflict pain on themselves simply for the notice of another? People suffering from such advanced depression should not be vilified, but helped. Speaking as a cutter myself, I can say that anyone who is negative towards those with problems should take a nice big peek in the mirror and not be so quick to judge.
Me: Sometimes the pain is just too much, and I find myself cutting.

Stranger: What are you, mental? An attention whore? GET OVER YOURSELF!

Me: (///_-)

cutting can be a natural drug to help people with their problems.its not good to do but its helps.it releases endorphins to the brain right after the cutting.cutting literally is when you take a sharp object doesn't matter what it is and place it on your skin and cut your self until you bleed.people who cut normaly cut on their wrists/arms.cutting can have a serious outcome.you can cut to deep and go to the hospital and can leave permanent damage.cutting can lead to other self damages like burning and head banging.people often think emo people do it to get attention.not only emo people do it.it is mostly middle class teenage girls and im one of them..i am not emo at all but i thought cutting was the only way i could get rid of my pain that i had because i had no body to talk to. people who are depressed cut and depression is a disease just like lukimia.you can't choose to be depressed.it can come to you no matter who you are.you can be the most popular person in school and still be depressed.some people can't stop because it is really addicting.you can't just go up to soemone who cuts and say stop cutting or else im going to tell...thats not going to do any good you can't tell them to stop because they won't. i still have my scars from cutting and i haven't cut for 3 months and i know i will always have them and i can live with that becuase they tell a story of something that has happened in my life and i don't want them to go aways becuase its like a part of me going away.that might sund weird but to me its not. its hard for soem people to stop cutting and im glad that im one of them.when you stop cutting you still get the urge to cut sometimes and you really want to but you don't.i have a good technique for that..wear a rubber band around your wrist and whenever you feel the need to cut just snap it a couple of times and your good to go.cutting is a serious thing don't do it to be cool or seem tough.and don't do it if you hear other people talking about it becuase you might do it and cut to deep and have to go to the hospital.and i would know i was almost one of those people that would have to go to the hosptial.also people who cut will most likely lie about cutting to hid it from their friends and family becuase thats what i did and a friend of mine.
not everything seems what it is on the outside,someone could be really hurting on the inside and you wouldn't know so becareful in what you say.

"why are you cutting? it doesn't make you cool"

"i know its just,you wouldn't understand,its something that i can't explain really,i guess its just me"
