Would you commit suicide? Under what circumstances?

I think I'd do it if I were in pain and dying soon enough anyway.

    I have thought about it. I would want it to be something painless, quick and absolutely certain.

    I hate the idea of messing something as important as my own death up.

    I have been there before. I never actually tried but the thoughts troubled me plenty of times. In the past I have suffered some horrible pain from a back injury, topped with some pretty traumatic emotional pain. It took me a long time to accept that what I was dealing with were tests and trials from God. (LOL It actually took me several years to accept that there even IS a God.) When I finally accepted that I was depressed and sought help, I got myself back on track. I still have issues with depression, but not like I used to. I realize that all I have been through is a learning experience and I am a better person for it.

    So, to answer your question, no I don't think I would ever commit suicide. If I managed to survive what I have already, I can get through most anything.

    No its not alright for a 23 year old man to commit suicide under any circumstance. People live and die and succeed and fail all the time. And it is VERY SELFISH to commit suicide because you're making everyone sad and stressed. Tell him that it's the new year meaning it's a new beginning. Tell him change his look, go for a job and have self-confidence. Tell him go out to party's and mingle. Btw aren't you his friend since he told you this? If you're his only friend then maybe you should do something special for him to change his mind hope i helped :) xx p.s life is a test. someone as young as him shouldn't end his life that quick. There's still more to see and find out.

    Never say never, because you don't know. I would like to say I can't do that, but I know that many who do commit suicide are either not thinking clearly or simply can't take anymore.

    I considered suicide in my teens but I was too much of a coward, I was afraid to fail and just have more pain (and a court case, because suicide is illegal in many places.) Later I became a Christian so a) I realised that suicide for a believer is like the ultimate insult to God who gave us life and salvation and b) I have the support of other believers and the Rock and now nothing is as terrible and heavy as it used to be. I still suffer and feel pain but I can bear it better because I know I'm not alone and never will be.

    Well I've tried..& failed..then again..& same result. I don't know how many times I've tried but obviously I wasn't very smart about it or I wouldn't still be here haha. Why?? Because I don't feel I have a purpose, because I am dead inside, because I want the mental anguish 2 end, because I am chronically suicidal. On the better days its' in the back of my head, on the screwed up days its' the only thing on my mind..it feels like the only answer. I feel incredibly selfish 4 trying 2 kill myself, I know it would destroy my family..its' not like I haven't put them through enough **** through all these years. Not just that, I do believe in God & I don't want 2 go to hell, yes seriously. I have major depression, borderline personality disorder & anxiety disorder..that I know of. I don't know if ever I will stop this cycle, but I do know a lot more about successful suicide methods than I did since my last attempt. Sexual abuse & rape is something you don't ever forget, you don't ever 'get over it', its' the venom inside you, its' the knife inside your heart, its' something that was stolen from you that you can never get back, its' the reason you can never trust again.. & in my case I think its' what started all this ****.

    Life is a GIFT from God - Our gift to God is what we do with OUR LIVES. God has a plan for you. He loves you, He really does! Suicide is not a solution. Don't throw away your life. It's too PRECIOUS!!! You're precious in the sight of God. So precious that He knows EVERY single detail about you and your life and He LOVES you.

    While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. He said He came for sinners and outcasts. When I look back in my life, I cant imagine how God would love someone like me! A wretched sinner like me. God knows how much I've messed up - But He still LOVES me - enough to give me a fresh NEW LIFE. Now, I cant afford to waste this gift - Gotta LIVE RIGHT!!! He wants to do the same for you. Please don't give up. Don't ever think of throwing away your life!!!

    Never, absolutely never. I believe that if I artificially end my life before it should have ended, my soul will have to wander the earth, lonely and afraid, until I would have died otherwise.

    If I was in a coma on life support and there was no hope of resuscitating me, then, OK, pull the plug.

    If i had to sacrifice my life to save another's, I might well do that too.

    No,I wouldn't do it no matter what happens to me.

    killing ourselves is a major sin,just like killing someone else.

    because just like others have the right to live,you must also consider that you have the same right.

    after all,pain that doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    stronger is better that dead.

    keep the faith alive everyone!

    Absolutely.... Whan the time is right, I expect to die on my time according to my terms. This is my God Given Right, and I will accept this right.

    God gave us freedom of choice and that has to include choosing when we die. If not, then his freedom is a lie. I believe in everything God tells us, so I have the choice.

    If I believe in Him, accept him, then I will go to heaven.

    If the suffering was unbearable and went on and on I suppose I might do it. Horrible thought though, - the kind of suffering it would take.
