  • I think people who do it, they really do need help, I myself will never attemped suicide.
  • It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
  • Don't do it
  • not my favorite way to deal with my problems
  • I think that it is stupidity and definitely not the answer. -In the Master's service. Thank you and God bless you!
  • Sometimes i think its the only way out, I've attempted to commit suicide like 2 years ago and I'm feeling like trying again. so yeah i think its an easy way out easier than dealing with life.
  • Mixed. Sometimes it strikes me as cowardly. It is effectively running away from problems that, dealt with, would make me/you/whoever a stronger person. Sometimes, its really rather appealing. Either way, its not for any of us to judge someone else for feeling that way, or commiting the act
  • Someone taking their own life is an act of self-indulgence. No matter how bad you feel there are others worse off and are toughing it out. Suicide is a despirate and final act; there usually isn't a second chance at life. I have been through some dark times like most of you have, but I'm glad I perceviered. I now have a wonderful family and a good life. If you are thinking of suicide, think again and get some help. Excercise all other options first...
  • It's selfish.
  • It's a coward's way out. Living is the best revenge--it frustrates your enemies and pleases your friends.
  • it's not for me.
  • I can't imagine feeling so hopeless that killing myself is the ONLY solution.
  • Permanent solution to what in most cases is a temporary problem :)
  • a waste of time for your mom to go through that much of pain when you were born
  • I don't recommend it. Too permanent.
  • Irreversible. Anything but death can be defeated.
  • I just had two people very close to me attempt suicide in the past 2 weeks. It's not the solution to the pain you feel in life. It's not the way out. Its also not a way to blackmail someone emotionally. It's just cowardly and you really have mental problems and should seek professional attention if you are having serious thoughts of killing yourself.
  • If someone doesn't want to live anymore, they should be allowed to end their life.
  • It destroys more lives than just the 'one' intended.
  • My thoughts are that if you search deep within your soul, I hope you'll find a reason to live; something that makes you want to have a future. Please seek help. Depression, even deep depression can be helped, even if it can't be cured. Suicide means DEAD. And as Eli and Hellaphunt so aptly pointed out, it's permanent and irreversible.
  • I've tried it and am still thinking about it right now. Being here @ AB is sort of theraphy for me even after knowing that the rest of of life is dead.
  • After prayer, it's the last act of a desperate human being. Also has a possiblity for good television.
  • My thoughts are that someone would have to be going through pure hell to commit suicide & I would feel so badly for them. However I would feel worse for their family because of the guilt & agony they would be going through for the rest of their lives. As far as them getting in to Heaven, YES, they would. If they commited suicide, they've already been through hell
  • I think that it's a cowardly way to avoid your problems. And it's one of the most selfish things one can do. When you commit suicide, you end your life and problems, but you cause so much grief and anguish for those who love you...and think about this--somebody has to find you. I knew a girl who found her father after he had shot himself...how could anyone do that to someone they loved? I don't care how hopeless your situation may seem, there's always a way out. The only time it might be acceptable is if you're literally facing death and it would be less painful/prolonged to take your own life (as in, "hello, Dr. Kavorkian?").
  • a permanent solution to a temporary problem. my roommate said that to me on one of the first days we met.
  • I was always totally against it....but I have worked with terminally ill patients in the hospital with AIDS and cancer and they are in excrutiating pain. I can understand how with some lives there is absolutely no hope! Also, some people are alone, lonely and have nobody in their life. They get desperate and are tortured. I cannot imagine that - yet on the other hand, I am not inside their head and I can't speak for their pain or emptiness. So I would say, I am not endorsing it by any means, but I would never condemn anyone who took their own life. It is a really difficult subject to be on either side of the fence.
  • You get one life, and you can spend it however you want. If you choose to off yourself, then fine. I consider it Natural Selection.
  • As one who was close to doing so a couple of years back I agree it is a selfish and cowardly act. The love and light of my life was brutally taken away from me by animals and I felt responsible for her death. They broke my heart with their cowardly act and I felt as if I could no longer survive without her and just wanted to be with her. Had it not been fpr a friend recognizing the signs of a suicidal person rushing to my house the night I was going to end it I would not be here today. No matter how bad you think things are there is a solution. Nothing other than terminal illness where you are in great pain is worth taking your life for.
  • I think it's a personal choice, but I tend to think that it's...not the best one. I think that no matter how down you are, there just isn't a way for you to STAY that way forever. Can't happen. Change is inevitable, and it might take some time, but things WILL change. It's so hard to see that when you're in a place where death looks like the only way to go, but when you finally get out of that place? You'll totally see that it couldn't've lasted.
  • I can't say that I have any at all.
  • No man is an island, right? I think suicide has such a negative effect on all the people around you, that it just becomes cruel to them. I think, if times are that tough on you, just saying to someone that you are considering suicide as an out would be more than enough to motivate them to help you out.
  • If you are feeling like this please email me at: terria235@hotmail.com.......please?
  • Bad idea. If you could regret it afterwards, you would. 95% of people who jump off buildings try to grab onto something on the way down.
  • I think it's a thought that everyone has at least once in their life, and hopefully they realize it's not a way out and go get help. Pretty much everyone I know has had some sort of thought about doing it, life gets tough, and sometimes people don't understand that suicide is not the best answer and things arent as bad as they think.
  • G'day Agent1337, Thank you for your question. Depression and other mental health issues can be horrible to live with. However, it is important to seek help. I had a cousin who committed suicide 20 years ago and it had a devastating impact on his immediate family. It would have been much better if he had sought help over the breakup with his longterm girlfriend. Regards
  • I still have strong convictions that you should have entitlement to end your your own life at your own volition. I feel that that the majority of the hoi polli fail to awknowlege that the psychological suffering aspect of human nature has pivital validity and is NOT just a surmountable triviality that anyone can overcome with a little effort. Pretentious psychobabble doesn't have an effectual result on someone who a bona fide brain aliment that cannot be remedied with medication. Please keep in mind folks that pyschosuffering is just as painful as phsyiological suffering such as cancer or MS, and shouldn't overlooked and critised by people who haven't experience such an ordeal themselves. --Thank you.
  • Wrong and VERY selfish
  • I try to not be judgemental. Barring any unforseen accidents, illnesses, or, God forbid, murders I myself will prolly die of suicide someday.
  • This is one of the pieces I wrote after my boyfriend's suicide... A Conversation “I know you’re hurting right now but you must remember that people come into your life for a reason. Sometimes they come for a short time; sometimes they stay for a little longer before they have to leave; and sometimes they stay with you forever. There’s a time and a season for everything under the sun.” “How can you spout all this bullshit? You lost someone to suicide not so long ago. Did shit like this make you feel any better? I thought that at least you would be honest with me. You’re just like all the rest.” “Fuck you. You have no idea what you’re asking me to tell you. Trust me, you don’t really want to know what lies ahead of you. You don’t want to know about the bad days, the really bad days, and the days when you’re tempted to follow the one you loved. You don’t want to know about counting every day since, each one an anniversary of death, a beckon for you to come with them. You don’t want to know the regret you will feel every day that you continue to live on without them—things you said you wish you could take back, things you should have said but didn’t. You don’t want to know that every moment you glimpse the happiness you once knew, it will immediately be followed with intense guilt. You don’t want to know that on the rare good day you have, you will spend it wondering if it’s really a good day or just a day when you’ve exhausted all emotion. You don’t want to know how random thoughts, memories, songs, etc. will turn a good day into a bad one, will reduce you to a shell, will wring your heart and soul to tears. You don’t want to know how you will cry yourself to sleep night after endless night, and how you will go through the motions of each day on autopilot, everything out of focus, pretending you’re not hurting, not dying, inside. You don’t want to know how it feels to have people want to help, but not knowing how, avoid talking about it or avoid you altogether. You don’t want to know how alone you will feel, surrounded by family, friends, and strangers. You don’t want to know how you won’t be able to plan for the future anymore because you’re just trying to survive the hour, the day, the night. You don’t want to know how pointless everything else that you once thought had meaning now seems. You don’t want to know that the unanswered whys never go away completely and that you finally must resolve to admit that no answer would suffice. You don’t want to know about the numbness, the emptiness, that eventually settles over you because nothing else is there. And you don’t want to know what it’s like on the edge. Believe me, you don’t want to know what lies ahead of you because if I had known, I would have made sure he took me with him.”
  • Selfish, completely. I know 2 people who commited suicide and never left a note as to why, their families long to know the reason and probably feel guilty in case it was something to do with them..
  • Check out the writings on my profile and you'll find out.
  • Ask someone who has completed it successfully whether they'd do it all over again.
  • i think its wrong
