My own temptations scare me watch

    I'm not suicidal at all but there is something inside me that wants to experience a near death situation
    After work today i was watching a big lorry reverse around a corner i had a sudden temptation to go and lie down on the floor behind it and see what happens. I also have a temptation to jump off high places like bungee jump but without harnesses. Another temptation that is getting harder to fight off is to take my seat belt off open the car door when my dad is driving at 90mph. There's so many different things like this that i want to do. At the point when im thinking of these things they look so appealing but when i think about it later im glad i dont let that feeling take over me.
    Im scared that one day i might not be able to fight off the temptation, i really want to stop finding near death experiences attractive

    Go skydiving, then see if you still want a near death experience?

    What if he takes of the straps?

    Anyway, back to the topic, have you spoken to anyone about this? eg. Parents, friends?

    I've spoken to my boyfriend about it and he just tells me to stop being silly and gets angry at me. So I don't like admitting how i feel to anyone, all that happens is that i get shouted at.

    I think it's best to talk to a professional about this. It sounds quite serious o:

    there are somethings you can do which are dangerous but 'safe' or other thigns which are dangerous and ;dangerous'

    example might be, do a standard skydive, which is fairly safe, you can then upgrade to more dangerous styles liek base jumping which are far more dangerous

    basiclaly, you can do lots of dangerous things without being SURE of being dead at the end,

    Totally get what you mean. It's the addiction to the adrenaline flow afterwards. Go skydiving. Really gets the blood pumping!
