i think so... sometimes.. i used to cut myself to, then i tried suicde. i know it takes away pain but nobody should do it. if you have anymore questions about it just email me.
i believe there is a big step from cutting yourslef and suicide, i used to cut myself, my arm ae heaely scared now, but I'm ok, i just wanted attention, it was a cry for help, and my friends supported me throgh bad time, sometimes, when I'm down, i still want to do it. Most people cut to balance out the "inner pain" with inflicting "outer pain" to yourself.
