Death to oneself?

On an overall scale, I'd say a fair amount of people have always thought of killing themselves. Curiousity strikes me as to why they still continue to live, but that is not the subject here. I was curious on how they planned to do it. So, all of you formerly potential suicidals out there, if you were to think of killing yourself, how would you do it? Humor me.

Should I have the guts for it, I would set up a video camera, and simply count to three and slash a knife down my arm. Start with my hand over my head, bring the knife down quickly, and drag it forcefully from my wrist to my elbow, leaving a cubit long gash on my arm. Then, I'd a) pour alcohol on it, b) thrash around like a madman, c) scream, and d) die.

I think it would be interesting to catch that on tape.

I've thought about suicide several times, but I could NEVER bring myself to do it, its just a cowards way out.
If I were to die, I'd rather go down in a honorable way than doing a cowards way out.
When I get those suicidal thoughts, I just smoke some pot and it makes me feel better.
:thumbsup:

I've poisoned the shit out of myself. Lived, and was even less happy because I felt like crap for days. All around not interested in doing it again, especially that way.

I don't feel that suicide is Always the cowards way out.

Some of the greatest heroes in history "died fighting the good fight" which is suicide in many situations. Many people knew the towers could collapse in 9/11 and still they rushed in knowing it was suicidal, they are considered heroes. I don't think it's fair to call suicide the coward's way out. YMMV

I think that's just a figure of speech. Real suicide is something you do to yourself, with the exception of suicide by cop. Those guys were brave and i'm sure the thought of dying crossed their mind, but at the time is wasn't certain the buildings were gonna collapse. If it was, I think some wouldn't have gone in knowing it was hopeless. They did their job just like any other fire.

I'd want to be shot in the face, also on camera while screaming "The end is near! Kill yourselves!!" like a madman. I'd also want the video to appear on website like Ebaumsworld.com and Compfused.com :thumbsup:

in all honesty though, suicide is just a declaration of weakness; the intensity of your pain is irrelevant. the human mind can always suffer more and can always adjust to it's surroundings within physical limits. emotionally, it's what you CHOOSE to feel rather than the things around you that MAKE you feel.

What's with the cameras? For shock value? Art for arts sake? Selfishness? I don't understand. It's just as sick as people taking family photos by the coffin.

Not something you want to replay.

The camera's not for shock value or anything. It's basically just your suicide note. That, and whoever sees it will know how you went down, what it looked like... you know. We can't leave the people wondering what happened. So, we show them, in every excruciating digital detail. That, and I like the concept of death caught on tape.

Wow, I gotta say I think I thought of this once in my life, and I think I would rape girl after girl till eventually one killed me or one of their boyfriends did. But before all of that I would try to find a poision that would kill me in 24 hours, so I would be sure to die and not get captured and go to prision.....wow can't believe I actually answered this sick question.

to address the question first, i dont know how i would kill myself, i dont like to think about that. if i had to do it id try to do it in the most clean way possible, with as little pain resulting, except i wouldnt drug myself, i may have chosen to do that earlier if i wanted to kill myself, but that isn't something id want to do now.

i dont think suicide is a declaration of weakness, and pain is not irrevalent (i know i just repeated what you said). when you are forced to constantly be around someone that you despise, who's life you see as pointless, eventually you will be angry enough to hurt them or even kill them. now imagine that literally every waking moment you are around this person and they are always expressing their thoughts to you. this person that you don't like. now imagine that this person is yourself, and in addition to this you feel that your life is pointless. only bad things happen to you and on top of those more bad things. you find yourself wondering, why are we here? is it really god's, if there is a god, purpose to put such sad wretched beings on this earth to watch them suffer...

a lot of people can probably helped and convinced that life is worth living, but to some the pain is too great, if you say that pain is irrevalent you are either very ignorant or you have never been depressed or around those that have been extremely depressed. i dont think that people should commit suicide ever, but i can undertand what it's like and that the pain can be too much to live with.

Hahaha LOL :)

You are asking the same question as my psychiatrist :p
How would I do it :p

Well If I would do it should be interesting and shouldn’t effect other peoples.
I think that a best way for me is to go skydiving ( I like Flying ) and than I wouldn’t open my parachute

I would never do it unless in the most ultimate and inevitable situations, but i have so many ideas on how to do it and the most recent idea i had would to make a person you really really dont like,feel as though it was their fault. So i would go to my ex's house, slash wrists and arteries for the full flow blood effect and hang myself high from the street light in front of her house, about 20 minutes before she leaves for school :thumbsup: I also theorised(sp) that for an even more devastating effect, when standing on top ready to drop, slice open my stomach to allow all internal organs to roll out at the sudden abrupt halt in descent once hanged/hung. And tie a large blood-proof sign with a message like " its your fault <name> " or " i love you " etc to your feet.

The only issue with that, is should you choose to gut yourself before you dropped, around that twenty minutes, you would have died already and fell, with your entrails being ripped from your body by the force of gravity that pulled them from your wound. But I like your style. Very guilt ridden on the recieving party.

Heh, I'm a depression surivor myself. I think what made me realize that pain is irrelevant is the basic theory behind life.

A man is on a beautiful boating trip. He is sitting on the deck of a his huge yaht with his gorgeous wife and kids when he gets a sliver while rubbing his hand against the dock rail. Instead of just ignoring it, he makes it the center of his concern. He doesn't enjoy the trip because he can't seem to get it out, and it occupies his time thinking about the pain.

Another man has a rough life. He was raised in poverty and lives from paycheck to paycheck currently. He is surrounded by violence and insecurity, but has a family that he loves very much. He wants the best for his kids, and their well-being makes him forget about everything else. He knows he could survive without them if something were to happen, but they make him very content and they're his focus in life.

Question: Who really lives the better life?

Now, while these are both extremes, there is a moral. The moral is this: life is what you make of it. Pain is not the measure of a person's worth or their mental health, the intensity of how much they dwell in their pain is. You just need to read deeper into what I'm saying next time instead of telling me "you don't know depression, you dont KNOW what it's like".
