  • If everyone that I knew and loved was already dead, I was about to die very horribly, and I had a method of killing myself instantly or without pain, then MAYBE I'd do it. I was near suicide once before... Not something I'm keen on repeating, almost regardless of the circumstances.
  • Let's see, I attempted suicide when I was younger because of all of the negative things my mom would tell me. She verbally abused me and my brothers constantly and when I was a child abused us physically. She always told me that I wasn't worth anything and that I would be alone the rest of my life. At first I ignored it, but after a very long time of hearing that, you start to believe the words and I didn't want to be a "burden" on anybody anymore so I attempted multiple times, but that knot kept untieing each time for some "strange" reason. Now, I understand that it was God untieing the knot because he had other things in store for me, and I understand that my mother is a depressed woman and hates everyone so I don't care what she says anymore.
  • I don't think there is anything that could feasibly happen to me emotionally that would push me to the point of suicide. If I was dying horribly of cancer or some other painful disease and I was going to just spend several weeks or months wasting away before my family's eyes, I would strongly consider ending it for the sake of their pain and my own dignity.
  • My imminent painful death from say, cancer. I believe in euthanasia.
  • Right now I can't think of a single thing that would make me do something like that. In my opinion, suicide is giving up and I am just too hard headed and stubborn to do that. When I was younger, there were several times it crossed my mind to simply opt out and I am so glad now that I resisted the temptation. If I were suffering from severe depression and/or was not in "my right mind" it might be different as those things will sometimes cause you to do things you ordinarily wouldn't. I have been through some incredibly hard times and I would like to think I am now strong enough to withstand anything life throws my way.
  • Anything can drive someone to take that step. it depends very much on the person's capability to bear pain or deal with a traumatic situation. everyone deals with things differently.From a break up of a relationship to a death of a loved one it can happen.
  • Only if I was terminally ill.
  • ive attemoted...my dad physically abused me and my mum ignored me and never showed me any love or affection and fel all alone and i had no purpose and nobody wanted me! i self harmed for a long time but luckily i found a way out and found a will to live yes i have 'bad' days but i pull through yes it is giving up but sometimes you feel so low and nothing to live for you have no other option!
  • If my son died you may as well go ahead and shoot me in the head because I wouldnt be much worth to myself or anyone else after that.
  • I dont think I could kill myself. It would have to be an extreme painful situation, that there is no way out of. I have been in one before, I just mentally took myself out of my body, in order to survive. A mental block.
  • If God forbid, I was somehow responsible for the death of one of my children, I'm not so sure that I could live with myself. I have nightmares about it, and wake up feeling sooo guilty. I can't imagine how I'd feel if it really happened.
  • Losing both my wife and son.
  • Being in a stable state of mind currently, I would say nothing would lead me to that point because I have too many people relying on me to be there... family, friends, even strangers that I may end up helping out in the future. But seeing as suicide is not *usually* planned out well in advance and is usually done during a surge of pain or emotional distress or whatnot, there is no telling what my mindset may be after a series of extremely traumatic events occur in my life. I would hope that I would never come to that point. I do not have a history of mental instability or family history of mental illness that would have that play a part... so since I would be of sound mind, it would have to be a willfull selfish act on my part to end my own sufferring. I suppose if I had no more family or friends at all that would eliminate some of my reasons for not doing it, but that alone wouldn't justify actually doing it.
  • Tottenham beating Chelsea in a cup final or the local off licence getting robbed.
  • boyf breakin up with me I guess but not sure.
  • i hate to say this but it wouldnt take very much more for me to kill myself.. I am way past my breaking point the only reason I havent done it is because I am still trying to prove everyone wrong!
  • Other friends killing themselves when I've failed to save them. I still don't know if I could do it though until I'm actually in that situation.
  • If I lost my children for some reason I really can't think of any reason to go on. They are the most important people in my life.
  • Being stuck in a lift for a week with a politician. It's enough to make anyone snap.
  • i dont know. i hope i never find out.
  • Well, if I felt hated and worthless and I was picked on a lot, I might just end my life. I try not to think about those things, though, as I don't believe suicide is the right answer and I'm not suicidal, even though one of the Principals at a school I went to thought I was. Then again, I sat in the snow for a few hours because I didn't want to go to school.... the other students were so mean. I hadn't even wronged them and they found reasons to pick on me that aren't and weren't even my own fault to begin with.
  • If my husband left with my 2 kids in the car and they got in an accident and all 3 were killed. That would literally be my breaking point.
  • highly painful terminal illness such as bone cancer
  • So far, the only thing that has pushed me close enough for me to consider it as a viable option was a combined feeling of worthlessness and hopelessness. I can't think of much else worse than that.
  • Going back to prison.
  • If I was about to be disemboweled by a giant lizard, If I had just been bitten by a zombi or any situation where a painful death was imminent and there was ABSOLOUTLEY no other way to escape
  • I am desperately trying to find my Mr. Right I hope this year is the year, if I do not find him this year before my 35 th bday i could decide to end it all. I also want to have a child or 2 before I die but if i do not accomplish this, i could end it all. In my mind, if I cannot accomplish these things, then what would be the point in going on????
  • If I lost either one of my children due to a terminal illness, accident, or if I was responsible for their death in some way. I know I could not go on if anything ever happened to my younger sister, Jess. I adore all of my sisters, but Jess is my soul mate. Life without her would not be worth living. I couldn't do it. I wouldn't want to. If I was terminally ill and not able to care for my family or myself and/or in extreme pain, I would at least attempt suicide. I am also pro-euthanasia.
  • If I don't get a job soon!
  • Loss of my child.
  • If the quality of my life was so bad that I couldn't function and needed care 24/7 and was terminal, I would consider it.
  • The loss of a child is the most terribly painful feeling that could ever happen to a mother. I was there I did it, he was my first child, I expected and awaited for this child with anxiety and so very much love. My son was born with a heart condition, I was so very careful with his health, his food, his medications and my whole time I spend it with him. I did all I could for him to be well within his health limitations, I forgot I had a life, I forgot I had to sleep or eat, I forgot I had a husband, a home and that I existed all I had and did was for my son. He was operated and lived 14 years by then with a promising healthy future ahead of him. Unfortunately one horrible day when leaving the library he was hit by a drunk driver and passed instantly. After my boys passing and the services, I attempted suicide. I don't remember much all I know is that what I did should have been physically painful but I did not feel pain at all. My husband found me and got medical assistance immediately, I was quite weak for almost two years but they saved my life. I was in psychological treatment for many years but was unable to say a single word for almost 10 long and exhausting years, the pain was so horrible that I can remember that many times I found my sweaters or blouses to be wet but I did not know what it was, one day I looked into the mirror and saw my face covered in tears. Yes, I was crying but tears were just rolling our of my eyes without feeling them. I am unable to describe the pain, 22 years have passed but I am still unable to talk about it, writing this is already a huge challenge for me. The horrible hurt will never go now I know that much. This is the reason why I have become a loner, I avoid people, I don't want to see anyone or talk to anyone I just want to be alone with my feelings and the small things I do to keep myself busy. I now have a peaceful life, but my son is everywhere. Perhaps some other mothers who have been through the same horrendous situation will understand me.
  • If I lost my 3 children I think I'd be done in. I couldn't live without them.
  • I am a pretty strong person. I think that I could always find somthing to live for instead of trying to find something to die for. I mean, don't get me wrong, If my whole family were to die in some freak accident, I would go insane, but I love life, and I would celebrate their life rather than celebrate thier death(Dr. Phil).. I could always find somthing to be grateful about.. Like the fact that I am still Living for example...
  • Yep your right there everyone has a breaking point, i think it would be time for me to leave this life and move on when i feel i cannot take the hassel of everything anyone more as in getting the blame of things you have not done constantly and feeling alone all of time.
  • If something happened to both my children, I'd feel as if I couldn't go on. Being a single mom, they are all I have.
  • ok Here ya go: You have worked for a company for 7 years. Did your job well and to the best and in most cases better than you expect. The company wants to merge with a larger company but your position with the company is holding back the merger. So rather than letting you go and allowing you to collect unemployment until you can find new employment. The create a new policy that is directed directly to your position and how you performed that function of your position. Now instead of just firing you, so they do not have to pay for unemployment they press charges against you. You do not have enough money to really hire a lawyer, and the way you always did things was never a problem before but now it goes again the policy of the company and the company has a lawyer on hand. So you have no other choice but to eventually gamble with the court system that your fight will be fought fairly, or plead guilty and accept some lesser charge but allas it ensures that you will not now go to jail but now you have to pay for everything and do what ever the court deams as fair even though no one ever heard your side of the story, noe do they care because you do not have enough money to fight for them to hear you. So now you have lost everything, including now the ability to get a job in the career field you know, or any other field. And it tears apart your family. Sound bad well trust me it is and it will most likely never get beter because your judicial system does not believe in fairness unless you have money.
  • i don't even know anymore...i've been contemplating suicide a lot, and nothing really terrible has even happened. i just don't want to deal with life anymore. i worry about the future too much, and i keep thinking mine's going to turn out like crap, so i might as well just die.
  • I agree... I do think that everyone has a breaking point. For me, it was the loss of my mother, my roommate, my boyfriend, my job, and my pet ALL IN LESS THAN 2 MONTHS. I overdosed, and lived to tell you all about it. :-) If you're contemplating suicide... there is help out there. It really can get better.
  • If my family wee taken from me, I know I wouldn't want to go on..I don't see how I could. It would be impossible, Im sure..I think nature would just stop my heart from shock first.
  • My only friend or a locse family member dying ie: my mum, dad or brother.
  • to truely love someone very deeply and for them not to love you back. its making me that way at the moment
  • Nothing on this earth would cause me to kill myself. The worst possible scenario..my child dies before me. My life would never be the same..part of me would have died with him. But there are others here who love me..Jim, my sister, my friends..I have suffered the suicide of my best friend in 1986..I still carry the pain and guilt of that. Knowing that, nothing would ever cause me to do that to others. I believe suicide is selfish..it takes you out of your misery and causes all your loved ones to be miserable the rest of their lives because of your selfishness. I will never do that! :(
  • Philosophising. The more I understand about the mere concept of existence, the closer I am to suicide.
  • Perhaps: 1) an immense amount of pain or 2) knowing that I had inadvertently cause the death of one of my children.
  • never having a girlfriend..not having a job..just being bored and tired of life
  • If something happened to my son.... I dont know what I would do!!! He is my life and everything that I live for!!! That freaks me out to thing about that!!! yuck!!!
  • Being in mind shattering pain and not being able to get relief. Suffering from physical torture at the hands of a sadist. I would want to find a way to end the horror.
  • it would probably be the death of my husband. he's all I've ever had. inless there were kids involved. then I would try to stay alive.
  • If I was facing a long prison sentence, I would make the cops kill me because I know that I would lose my mind if I ever had to go inside for years AND I would rather my Mother had to visit my grave than my cell(I've already seen what that does to her...NEVER again!)
  • So that I would not have to be alive anymore. There are some who would consider that a public service.
  • I wouldn't.
  • I hate when folks blame those that no longer wanted to live and stopped and say they are selfish etc. Would you want them to continue to live in their emotional pain just to keep (selfish)YOU happy? How selfish and cruel. Deal with their leaving it isn't all about you obviously. If life got to the point the joy was gone and also if I was diagnosed with Alzheimers, who wants to feel themselves slip away and then know others will have to take care of their living body for who knows how many years? I'm a nures and you would be surprised how many in the medical profession already have an 'out' set up for when things reach an unacceptable point. We see too much suffering to think life is a precious commodity like society likes to force and make people think it is. We come from a long darkness, exist in the light briefly and return to the darkenss forever.
  • Not sure, my life's been the crappiest it's been, but I'm opposed to suicide after a couple of people I was close to attempted suicide on my behalf, luckily they both failed.
  • If I knew I wouldn't be able to respond.
  • Probably if something happened to my son...if he is outta my life, I really don't have anything to live for.
  • Losing my mind. Life would be over anyway. Alzheimers would be awful.
  • I attempted once when my mum told me to go kill myself the world would be better without me luckily i cut my wrist horizontal instead of vertical. but after surviving that i relised nothing will ever make me kill myself. ''Suicide is defeat, and im a sore loser''
  • i tried at 9, 15, 16 and 18. I have kids so would NEVER do that to them, the only time i would take my own life is if something happened to my kids, i'm a mum so it would be my duty to look after them in the afterlife, motherhood never ends.
  • i don t believe in suicide it s a permanent solution for temporary problems +3
  • if everyone i loved died then i wold off myself but not before making the whole world felt the pain i did ;) so just hope my family never dies
  • What? Commit suicide?! Jeesh! Why would someone commit suicide nowadays??
  • I came close once. An abusive relationship with seemingly no way out drove me too it. Having survived and prospered I cannot ever imagine I would choose that path again. The only exception might be in the case of a debilitating terminal illness. Under those circumstances I may choose to end things in order to make things easier on both myself and those I love.
  • Well, first off I have to say sometimes I'm just curious in a wierd way. Kinda like "hmm, what would it feel like if I jumped in front of this train", but lets assume I am always going to be able to suppress such wierdness :P. Apart from that the only reasonable moment to commit suicide, I think, is when there is nobody left in the world that is tied to you, in any positive way. But since I believe in God, Him being eternal, and His love unconditional, there's never going to be such a moment.
  • The deaths of my wife and son. I'd eat the barrel of a Benelli as soon as I cleared the waiting period to buy one.
  • mental stress
  • Heartbreak.
  • truth be told, if i'm not married, or have any children by the time both my parents are dead i will kill myself. my moms been making halfassed attemps at suicide since i was 8 andjust over a year ago my dad found out he was HIV posetive.
  • i have allready attempted to commit suicide and that is because my life was a living hell. now what would cause me to kill myself is if i fucked up RELE bad, lost my husband or one of my unborn children
  • Yer, In some cases it wouldnt take much. My dad losing it again would bring me close to the edge. Losing my sister. If i had just had enough, was tired and fed up with it all.
  • Well mostly it would be my friends and family hating me. I mean, I know my dad wishes that I didn't exist, and sometimes that hurts, but it would definitely have to be everybody for me to even consider it. As it is, it's only one person, and if he thinks about me like that, he can go ahead and keep thinking it. Even if everybody hated me, I might stay alive just to try and spite them.
