If life and your body is a gift from God, do you think hurting yourself (= disrespecting the gift) is sinful? I can't help to think so. At the same time I seem to be unable to stop it. Is my faith not strong enough?Answer Question

I don't believe in God so I don't believe in "sin" in the same manner as say a Christian. However I find hurting oneself an incredibly stupid thing to do. However I also understand that it can be a sign of deeper emotional or mental health problems. You need to seek professional help. Especially if you claim you can't seem to stop it.

Faith is important, but you can have faith and see a doctor if you're hurting yourself physically. We can all hurt ourselves in certain ways, such as, being in destructive relationships, over eating, ect. However, there comes a time when we need to seek medical intervention for our problems.
