Just wanted to say that I have stopped cutting now but the butterfly project never helped me. I didn't like the idea of killing it so I done this instead...
1) when you feel like cutting get a pen
2) draw a line
3) done no pain no animals dying simple
Stay strong - you are loved

That's really smart :) I'm glad that you have made your own way to cope :)

Although I've been unsuccessful with this project (been cutting for over a year), I do recommend this to girls (and guys) who struggle with any form of self-harm because I know it does work for many people. Thank you for posting this thread.

I'm sorry it hasn't worked for you but hopefully you will find your own way to handle it :)

Its a good idea, but when I wanna cut.. It seems silly and I just want to feel pain to make the rest of the pain go away. It's like a relief strike.

I have tried this. It really does work when you stick to it. I did for a couple of months but then I started getting mad at everyone and everything and went through a depression stage. I haven't in about a month. It's really difficult but if any of you need someone to talk to I'm here. There is also this website --> www.quotev.com
It really helps. There are a bunch of people that cut or are suicidal. If you do get an account, add me. www.quotev.com/ilove1d822 :)

I just wanna say that this is such a good project and it really can help. I had a close friend if mine going through a hard time last year, cut herself and attempted overdosing, she ended up in hospital and when she got out she continued to cut, I told her about the butterfly project and drew her first butterfly and with this, and the help of some great counclers she's happy and healthy again :)

Hey girls I'm just here to inform any girls who self harm about the butterfly project!! It's quite simple here are the rules:
1. When you feel like you want to cut,take a marker or pen and draw a butterfly wherever the self harm occurs
2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone who really wants you to get better
3. NO scrubbing the butterfly off it must fade by itself
4. If you cut before the butterfly is gone it dies, if you don't cut it lives
5. If you have more than one butterfly cutting kills them all
 6. Another person may draw them on you. These butterfly's are extra special so 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 who you know is suffering from this right now!!

Well that's it, If you need this then please go to the website there are lots of stories and pictures of what people are going through and this site could help you!!

I cut all the time because I wanted to die but when I was found it was my 5 yr old bro and never want him to see that again he still asked why and hes only 6

I guess this could work for people that have depression that don't harm aswel, what they could do is draw the butterflies with positive thoughts and things that are good about their lives, they would draw these whenever they have negative thoughts!
oh my god I love this! I suffer with depression and I cut every single night, I'm really gonna try this hope it works thank you x

Good idea :) I've never slit my wrists, but I've harmed myself before :(
Me to I can't slit my wrists because I can't stand that I'm doing it to myself but I do hurt myself in other ways
