You know that sometimes the thought of suicide is not how much we want to die, but how much we are afraid to live. Life is to live, not fear living it, Just as life is to short to hate, so don't hate life. In life there are positive and negative experiences, might not like all the lessons but we learn from them all---that is how we gain our wisdom and our truth. Never use, abuse, or deceive yourself or anyone else. Forgive everyone you know for their ignorance, arrogance, and lack of understanding and ask them to forgive you for yours----forgive yourself too. Do not let negatives define you, only let the positive truth of your love radiate your being. remember, that sometimes your life is not about you, but what you say and do to those in it. Good People Do Good Things and don't look for anything in return for their truth. Saying this realize, The World needs all the good people in it that it can get -----and you are a Good Person. Your are loved and needed more then you realize and that is your truth.
I wouldn't necessarily say "the thought of suicide is not how much we want to die, but how much we are afraid to live" to convince someone not to commit suicide, since it's something most suicidal individuals realise already. "I just want all this pain to be over" tends to be a common theme.
that looks more like a wolf ! and he is beautiful
Well spotted. I love animals in general, not just horses. :-)
I hate myself and want to die!
Thank you for this...I was just searching for ways to end it all. I'm at a really bad stage of life and it doesn't feel like it'll get better. But reading your entry helped ease the pain a little. I thought about my parents who would be absolutely devastated. And I could never hurt people that I love that much.
Carbon Monoxide: Start your car in the garage, and wait. You'll pass out and die in your sleep. I don't suggest you kill yourself, though.
maybe you aren't doing it right... plenty of people have committed suicide using this method.
This question has to rank in the top 5 all time asked Q's on EP. I will give the same answer.....Old Age

Least painful way would be to let God do it in His time fr<x>ame. Give Him about 80 years and He will do it for you.<br />
I am floored at how many adult idiots are willing to tell a child how to kill herself.
I am suicidle and I've tried to talk to my friend but she won't care. One time I held a knife to my throught and I couldn't do it I was to afraid. I don't know what to do. I've felt like this for years and I can't take it! Should I hang myself? Or deep breath and hold it until I die? Or run away and starve to dealth? All I know is, I can't live life being bullied from her any more and I don't jnow what to do anymore. I don't even know who to trust. I struggle from anxiety, stress,and ADHD followed by disibilities depression and social oddtisem.
I know what it feels like to be a coward. I want to do so much but I am too afraid. I want to use sleeping pills and trash bag, but I feel that someone would be yelling at my dead body for something I did. It always is like this. I am always yelled at, and rarely complemented. Do not use the deep breath. Take sleeping pills, as you fall asleep, wrap a garbage bag around your head, tighten it with duct tape, and never wake up.
I'd say the fastest IS the least painful way, especially something instantaneous, but it has to be well planned so you don't survive. You don't want to wake up from things like a gun, jumping off a building, or driving into a truck.
A specific combination of pills.
I'd go with the bullet, but don't miss. Seriously though, you don't need to be thinking of suicide, life's just begun for you, sweetie. 16-17? Stick around for when it gets better.
this might seem like a good way to go. but the mess is horrible. and speaking from personal experience , even shotgun shells don't always go off. and you are left feeling 100% defeated.
Not doing it in the first place.
Bullet in the head.
I ask this so many times :D I got my answer my self "take a plastic bag cover your whole head, tie the end and wait" now now I know you won't do it because I didnt but don't do it because you probably will... But this is my ticket out... I've tried to suffocate my self several times it just never works because deep deep deep deep down "the spirit within wouldnt allow it
my second attempt was similar to this. I tied myself a good solid noose , tied one end to a door knob, made the length comfortable to where I had to hold myself up to be able to get blood flow. I came to terms with everything I was about to do, all the personal letters had been written. and I sat down. a minute goes by, and I felt myself start to slip, further and further. some time later, I woke up in my bed, with a terrible headache. I'm not sure how I got there.
Please don't commit suicide. It is never the answer if you want to talk to someone please feel free to message me or calling the suicide prevention hotline if you live in the US the number is 1-800-273-8255
It's funny, if I WAS suicidal the suicide hotlines would push me over the edge. Most people are suicidal because they feel like NO one cares, and NO one is there for them. Leaving them feel alone and THAT pain NEVER stops. EVEN if you MAKE yourself GREAT, if NO one is there to care about you (a lot of people come into one's life to DO things with them, but NOT TRULY care). IF that person has anything painful to say people are GREAT at staring blankly and walking away. Treating you like you're EMO or CRAZY. How DARE you say something that ISN'T positive. Suicide hotlines are AWFUL. They give you NO time and yell at you and reduce your needs to, "Take a long walk, or a hot bath." LADY if THESE things would have worked I would have been FINE by now. IF you get admitted to the psych ward, you get YELLED at if you DON'T accept that YOU can make ALL your problems DISAPPEAR and the ONLY thing wrong with YOU is YOU. If you TRY to point out that sometimes problems ARE because of other people, you get knocked down. I've SEEN it when I've admitted mySELF to the psych ward. They dont' treat ME that way because I admitted myself, but I saw them treat others this way. I've thought to myself, if I was suicidal, THAT would push me off the edge. I'm sorry, but if I feel that NO one cares, being yelled at and BLAMED ISN'T going to make me feel better.
I LOVE this post. You are exactly right. Psych Wards DO treat their patients like garbage.
sure sure, call the number so you can be locked up in a crazy hospital.
I would guess taking lots of sleeping tablets.
You have to take gravol first. Your body will try to throw up if you ingest a lot of pills. Gravol helps with that. This isn't really a painless way to die... you could end up in horrible convulsions or throwing your guts up and liver damage. Instead of committing suicide with the pills let them take you away for a few hours. Smoke some week. Drink some alcohol. Take diphenhydramine in excessive amounts plus your regular meds (if you are on any). There you have it. A relaxing evening of not caring why you want to kill yourself and a very peaceful sleep for the night.
Top 10 Suicide Methods http://frater.com/suicidelist.html
Ten Minute Suicide Guide
You will find out that there isn't a painless way to die. All result in pain of some kind. Also, none are guaranteed death. Many are guaranteed to make you a vegetable.
I have been researching for over a year trying to find the best way to commit suicide. You could go somewhere in south america and pick up the drugs they use for assisted suicide... it's expensive, but I believe it to be the least painful. You just fall a sleep.
How much pain are you willing to be in? Remember that you won't feel the pain when you are dead.
This is an excellent website... http://lostallhope.com/suicide-methods
Sleeping tablets is a miserable drawn out way to die of suffocation. It takes HOURS. NOT nice. NOT recommended.
Suffocating on carbon dioxide... it's like falling asleep.
No, I've heard it's VERY uncomfortable. You fall asleep but you feel yourself suffocating in your sleep, only you can't wake up to stop it.
true story. and you run the risk of someone coming in by accident.
Doesn't exist. Suicide is excruciating for family and friends left behind.
It's excruciating for family and friends left behind? In my opinion they are being selfish by wanting you to stay living a miserable existence. Is that what they choose just so they don't have to go to your funeral? I have lost everything to mental illness... I don't think anyone would care if I disappear tonight. It really bothers me when people say it isn't fair for the family you leave behind... what about me? what about my miserable existence... it's torture living each day. I would let my dog suffer as much as I have suffered.
Then maybe family and friends should have cared while the person was alive
Experts teach women to love and nurture themselves because they KNOW we're social creatures and we NEED someone to do it to us. BUT, they also KNOW that so FEW people KNOW how to do this, that most people will never meet someone who does. SO, instead of TEACHING people HOW to CARE properly, they teach each other to only CARE about themselves because NO one else will. THIS exacerbates the problem in MY book. But HEY, if an expert says it, everyone follows along like puppy dogs. EVEN though a great deal of what they say are lies, meant to manipulate the public into doing what THEY think is best for them. I KNOW this because I went into school and studied it. They think people aren't capable of handling the TRUTH. But MAYBE if PEOPLE KNEW the truth, they'd work on FINDING a WAY to FIX it instead of putting a band-aid on it. I hope you are alright. My family ignores me. I think I pretty much deserve it. So I guess I can't talk. I've tried to reach out to them, but if ANYONE breaks the NO talk rule, they are ONLY considered EMO, CRAZY and WEIRD.
I like this post too.
it's selfish of them to make you live through pain you don't want to. it's one's own choice to live or die.
If the so called family and friends were a consideration to begin with then the final option probably wouldn't have become the consideration. How much more sacrifice of pain and desperation ,in all of its manifestations, at our own expense is enough? When does it finally become ok for us to say to ourselves we don't have to go through it anymore and not carry the fear and guilt of the decision because of the sake of others? It's even wrong to call that my own? To stay in that place then the cycle never ends.... a lifetime and the cycle dies not end..........
I know exactly how that feels. I don't even think that I should exist.
Don't stroke out! Volunteer instead. :-)
Volunteering ONLY works if people have been there for you, and or people ARE there for you. Otherwise as people suck you dry by taking and never giving back, YOU only feel worse. There have been studies done to show that volunteering helps people feel happy, but they never studied if these people were already happy because someone was there nurturing and supporting THEM, making them feel GOOD about being able to do for someone else as well.
Ok. Uh...I posted this answer long time ago.
Doesn't mean **** now
Yeah, I know, but I'm dealing with this issue now.
I also suffer from frequent thoughts of suicide. The real question is, why exactly are you wanting to commit suicide? I would recommend at least waiting until you are absolutely sure that there is no way for you to ever be happy. It may sound silly, but I would suggest that you smoke weed frequently while meditating on your situation. Look at the beauty of the earth around you. Focus on the good things that the universe has given us. If you meditate on these things, and still, after seeing the beauty that is the world, you want to die, then I would suggest a quick gunshot to the head. You probably won't really feel pain, because you will instantly be dead. And to be quite frank, what is a split second of pain when you will never feel pain again? I support you in whatever you decide to do.
