Oh boy yes it is. About 2 secs after I start running... that's when I regret running.

I play video games to help me forget about my life for a couple of hours.

And also eating peanut butter. Grab a butter knife and just go for it.

Yeah thats why I usually play the Sims. It can take the edge off of whatever is bothering me because I find it relaxing a bit as weird as it sounds.

The Butterfly Effect is to help people that have a problem with self-injury or for anyone else that knows someone that has this problem or just for support.

here are the rules:

1. When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand.

2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better.

3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally. NO scrubbing it off.

4. If you cut before the butterfly is gone, you’ve killed it. If you dont cut, it lives.

5. If you have more than one butterfly, cutting kills all of them.

6. Another person may draw them on you. These butterflies are extra special. Take good care of them.

7. Even if you don’t cut, feel free to draw a butterfly anyways, to show your support. If you do this, name it after someone you know that cuts or is suffering right now, and tell them. It could help.

These are great. I also find drawing a flower with marker where you would si helps.
