How can I punish my self harshly??

I want to punish my self in a harsh way to control impulsive behaviors. Sometimes I want to cut my self with a knife when I **** up to correct the undesired behavior. I have tried to find sources on this topic but I haven't been successful. Does anyone know whether self punishment correct undesired behaviors? Maybe if there is like a book of a Japanese sensei that achieved complete self control by punishing himself every time he messed up.

    Lay on your bed and be still, reflecting on what you think you did wrong or messed up on and express some disappointment in yourself in that (if true). Confess out loud how things didn't go the way you hoped and that you wanted them to go better. This could help fuel better actions in the future.

    NO,Self punishment won't help at all.

    Go and see a psychologist and get rid of your issues.

      I do work a full time job and I'm partially disciplined. I usually work out five times a week, I cook my own meals, etc. But sometimes I just spend money like crazy, I literally can't control it. Other times I stay in bed until its late then I have to rush. Then I feel guilty.

    Sit down and read a maths book from lowest level to highest. It will torture you. Also do the exercises. It will nearly kill you. It's painful because it feels like you're missing out on something. And you are. That something is "life". Even starring at paint drying on wall is more interesting. If you like maths then choose another subject. That is true punishment.
