cutting is something that many people do.  it is a release of that tension, anger and whatevere is is going on but it is not a good thing to do.

you need to talk with someone that can teach you other coping mechanisms.  i would strongly suggest meeting with a therapist and if need be, maybe a low dose of an anti-depressant medication.
