Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. Your question is not closed until you are satisfied. I am happy to assist you with your question.
People who cut can actually become addicted to the rush of endorphins that happens when they cut. Are you taking any medication? You need medication as well as cognitive-behavioral therapy to help you substitute other behaviors for the cutting.
I am on medication.
Then you need to get the medication evaluated and see if you need something else. Also, the desire to cut may not go away for a long time, which is why you need cognitive-behavioral therapy to help you substitute other behaviors when you feel like cutting.
I have been in therapy for almost four years and I've been on medication that has been adjusted just as long. Therapy is not working.
