    Go to a therapist.

    Holding your breath will not kill you. If you hold it long enough, you will pass out, and resume breathing.

    I am not sure what you are asking - but taking your question at face value, yes. If you don't breath you will die. A couple of minutes is enough to bring unconsciousness to most people, 5 minutes will see the beginnings of brain damage, and much longer than that will result in death.

    I once knew a very nice man who was a truck driver. While driving one day he had an accident and was pinned so tight between the seat and the steering wheel that he smothered to death. Had it not been for that he would have lived because he had no other injuries.
