My body belongs to me, I don't know whose yours belongs to. (That was a retorical statement, I know exactly who you think yours belongs to so don't bother saying it). The responsibility for my body belongs to me. The responsibility for everything that it does and says and thinks is mine and mine alone.

If hurting yourself does hurt someone else then the first statement applies. But it is not the harming of yourself that is wrong, it is the consequences that it has. If it has no consequences to someone else it is not wrong, just stupid.

Try to take life one day at a time, but be prepared for several days to attack you at once.

Life is like the rim of a toilet bowl, and we are but pubic hairs. Sooner or later you get pissed off.

What win I if I gain the thing I seek?
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute's mirth to wail a week?
Or sells eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy?
Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown,
Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?
Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece [lines 21117]
