It's really hard for them to stop because all of us get used to something that takes the pain away, but this people must realize that harming themselves is not the best solution for their problems. They must stay strong.
Report it ! Help others or yourself!

- Yourself: You need to be strong and if you don't have someone that you can call friend and they can help you, don't worry.
