    It is certainly possible if they knowingly choose to contract the AIDS virus(HIV)from a sexual partner or intravenous use as is common among drug addicts.

    In this case the natural progression of the disease takes many years,and would not likely be the cause of death. Death could and more commonly occur from the complications of the disease.(ie:such as pneumonia in HIV or chirrosis in Hep ) Taking many of these factors in consideration and more importantly the chance you may not aquire the disease as attempted doesnt make this a prime choice among suicide victims.Giving AIDS knowingly to another carries many criminal charges and possibly civil law action suits.criminal charges are serious and severe and can include 25 years to life if convicted.Example of possible charges: Voluntary manslaughter, Invouluntary manslaughter 2nd deg Murder assault w/deadly weapon among many and a lesser charge of reckless endangerment.

    That would be something like that indeed. There is no cure for AIDS. Some people live a long time with it, take tons of pills every day and all, but to knowingly give someone AIDS is a crime and a person could end up in jail (and some people indeed are in jail now for such crimes)

    The answer is probably a big no. The world of arguing over the details of religion is a pointless one that has no conclusion, the truth is that nobody knows the answer. HOWEVER, we can make informed decisions on the matter, and from the perspective of someone who doesn't subscribe to the concept of religion at all (I won't even accept agnostic as a religious label, I simply do not acknowledge the need to have such a label) it seems unlikely there is an all loving entity watching over us all. You should use this kind of realisation to make your life better though, hating yourself, your life and the cruelty of the world is all just a matter of perspective that can be changed with some serious effort.

    Suicide by HIV/AIDS is indeed possible. Some people usually inject themselves with an HIV contaminate and infect themselves with another illness to increase the speed of death.

    That's a cry for attention when someone says that.

    If someone was serious about comitting suicide they would do it. Fast.

    Not advertise on craigslist to get an illness that can take up to 30 to 60 years (with current medication) or 5-10 years (with little to no medication) to kill yourself. Suicide is fast.

    If one follows the same logic about killing themselves with HIV as suicide, then smokers and over eaters are committing suicide as well. Which, in itself, is not as simple as that.

    some people will infect themselves HIV to commit suicide but just remember it could take up to 10yrs before they get full blown AIDs and another 10yrs to succumb to Aids very slow for suicide.
