    I have considered it, but I'm completely against suicide and there's absolutely no point to the act. I have many ambitions in life, which I'd like to complete before then. There's no way I'd let myself do something to destroy my dreams.

    indeed, it is one of the most selfish things to do.

    Yes but some people use it as a call for help -they are in such despair that they can see no way out. Surely you should recognise that these people need help and not people saying it is disgusting or they deserve no respect.

    So catching the bus is suicide...I think that everyone might have considered suicide at some point...especially those who get very over-emotional...take my friend who threatened to kill himself with an overdose of sea-sickness pills, because everyone but him wanted to go to sleep on a ferry crossing to france

    Anyone ever thought about catching the bus?

    Before you answer, if you do not know what the expression means then please do not respond. I am not good at explanations.
    yea i have 'thought' of commiting suicide, rather not say why, but i got over it after a few hours. If there is a guaranteed painless instantaneous suicide method with no side-effects such as dissapointment from my family and friends due to my death. I would do it now, take lots of ecstacy then proceed with the guaranteed painless instantaneous suicide method with no side effects.

    I am feeling good at the moment, but i think that the above is very desirable - wouldnt you say?

    I think people who want to commit suicide are at a low point that they don't understand what effects it will have on the people who love them.. hmm.. kind like they are surrounded by a "bell jar"? Sylvia Plathe described it pretty well.

    Taking pills which cause internal bleeding over a period of months which then leads to an abrupt death.
    However, I do not wish to infiltrate this forum with methods of killing ones self.

    Yes, [I] catching the bus [I] ,as someone was rightly said, is commiting suicide.

    I notice that a few people have decided to mock me, and shown insincerity however that does not bother me. I am not looking for sympathy, nor am I looking to blame. I am simply presenting my feelings. Unless you have been at the point where I am at now, an all time low, then you are not at liberty to comment on the effects or causes of this issue.
    quit alot of people seem to have really immature views towards suiside, drugs and generally things they're frightened of or can't understand.

    If someone wants to commit suiside it's their own choice. Ok it can hurt other people but you can use the same arguement against the anti-suiside camp: what right do others have to force someone to live a life they don't want to live just because it may hurt them?

    to be honest and blunt, you should go and see a doctor. we dont know what we are talking about. as you say we (I) havent been there. you need to get someone to help you and i would be causous of finding it here.
