Self-harm can become addictive due to the release of feeling relieved. Of course, everybody deals with depression, stress, etc... in different ways, so some others may like the feeling of pain rather than the feeling of being relieved. When in pain, the brain releases endorphins which helps relieve pain. Endorphins also prompt the feeling of pleasure which is also released during sex as well. The main trigger of endorphins are stress and depression. There are many ways to self-harm yourself, so there is a variety of dangers to self-harming yourself. The most dangerous factor of self-harming is taking it even further to the point of suicidal thoughts.
