reason you claim edge: I grew up in and around the HC/Punk scenes... and I do NOT smoke/drink/dope up/sleep around... So, more or less... it fits.
do you think self-mutilation is something those who claim edge should abstain from? (not including body modification processes): I know that SI is a serious issue for some people... I wouldn't fly an Edge flag while self-harming, but I don't think I could turn my back on someone who needs help like that.
do you think that abstaining from caffiene should be part of being sXe?: Living off of caffeine... Not sXe. Needing it to get through your day... Not sXe. Consuming it once in a while... doesn't seem the same as someone drinking booze once in a while, though... So... casual use, sure...
what about animal products? (meat, dairy, etc.): respect your body and what you put into it... someone living sXe wouldn't want to fill their body with horrible food, no more than they would drugs... Again, in this department, complete abstinence... I dont feel is neccessary... But at least be mindfull of what you are stuffing your face with.

how long have you been straight edge?: Ouch, **blush**. I was a huge screw up for ages... Going on second year... no problems tho
if someone breaks edge, can they claim it again?: I don't know how to word this clearly, but I will try my best. I do not think someone can break edge. If someone is able to start poisoning themselves... they never were edge to begin with. A person who "broke edge" can, however, begin a sXe life... Bearing in mind it is a LIFE... not a hobby.
Pictures: This is the closest you'll get for now... a picture of me when I was heavier... Clicky
