Can you tell me, if I am not cutting for emotional reasons, only for the physical feeling, why is it bad?

Probably not: Self injury is like a lot of symptoms/behaviors: it needs to be evaluated for the severity/etiology etc. What a counselor would next do about them depends a lot on the history.

If you can do it, I would recommend that you start with not drinking for 30 days. ...Read more
