|Reading these suicide pages you will find people seeking help and people offering their help. Some witness about suicide from real life experience, others who play along with me would pretend it's a children's game. Some make sick and cruel jokes about it, and angry people blame me for even mentioning the subject. You might also want to read my favourite answers.

What is the best way to kill yourself when you're under 13?
Quelle est la meilleure forme de suicide pour les moins de 13 ans?
|04 Nov 2001||Rhian||I think it's a bit weird, this site, because you are all missing the point that you DON'T have to commit suicide. You feel you have to because when the pain you experience exceeds the resources or defensive walls you've built, you need to feel relief. But relief is a FEELING, and to FEEL you need to be ALIVE. If you wanna talk about anything, email me.|

I am 20 now and relatively happy, content, glad to have lived through all that pain and turmoil. I wish I could hold and heal and comfort every single one of you who has contemplated suicide. I know what a lonely place it is, the anger and the frustration and the pain... I wish I could look you all in the eyes and tell you how much I care about your well being. I wanted to email you each individually, but I couldn't, so instead I'm offering what quite a few others here have offered: email me if you ever want someone to talk to. I'll respond to anyone who writes. I only wish I could save you from the circumstances that have brought you to the edge of life... I sincerely love you all right now because I have been you... if you need me, write.

Antidepressants (Prozac, bla bla) can change your perceptions. It is worth a try. When you feel a little better you can make some art and otherwise annoy the world. Get a tatoo. Pierce your nose. Shave your head.|
|08 Oct 2001||Feeling Better, thanks Doc!||I feel terrible right now, but I know that things can only get better. Get this; I am good looking, have a University education, and think about "offing" myself daily since quitting my job, a close family member dying, and my fiancee becoming an ex fiancee (she was just a bitch anyhow), but I WILL NOT DO IT. Do not let the world win! Why? First, those who love you will freak. (YES THEY WILL) Secondly, those who dislike you will laugh. (FUCK THEM) Don't give them the opportunity to do so. If the pain is too great, it simply means that your pain has to decrease, or your coping mechanisms to cope with pain have to increase. Go see your doctor and tell him "I feel suicidal". He will do something to help you immediately, guaranteed. If he doesn't, fire him, he's incompetent, therefore go see another doctor. Don't surf the net, go see a doctor, a real HUMAN BEING.|

|16 Sep 2001||sj||hi guys,
I've spent the past hour reading everyone's message and their tips on the different ways to commit suicide. Let me say, none of them have surprised me since I've spent many hours contemplating the same things. However, I think that I've learned a few things in my 21 years on this earth. I know that this will sound corny but I've learned that things will get better and you can always start over. In my life, I've had a lot of unfortunate things happen to me and I've felt like killing myself many, many times but I try to hold on to my belief that tomorrow is a new day and I have the ability to change my destiny. All of you who are thinking about killing yourself, please listen to me for one more minute. Killing yourself is not worth it. You are precious and your life is precious. I know that most of you are young. Just think of what great potential you all have. You can go to college and become whatever you want. Or, if you don't want to go to college, there are tons of other things you can do that would make you happy. Please don't take the coward's way out. You are worth so much more than that. Remember, you have the ability to change things around. Just stand up and fight. Please don't give up. Also, please email me at email@example.com if you need help, advise, or just someone to listen or speak to. Take care of yourself and each other and drink pepsi, not coke.
|10 Sep 2001||**********||Hey, I do not think that suicide is some joke. my boyfriend commited suicide last month. he seemed so happy. the best way he thought was to hang himself. he thought no one loved him except for me then i am moving so his one support was living. I want to die to each day, I want to be with him but I get through it. I don't know how long i will live but any one who needs help to deal wth things can email me. I don't want anyone to go through the same pain as I. just hold on|
|08 Sep 2001||LalartuAkhkharu||don't attempt to hang yourself, although everyone has access to rope it is not a good idea. I have heard stories of young children attempting to hang themselves. Their small bodies dont provide enough weight to snap their necks, the simply either get really bad rope burn and fall, or they suffocate, which takes a while|
|08 Sep 2001||Christy||First of alll, let me begin by saying that this is not a lecture. I am not speaking "down to you" and I am not passing judgement. I also have been suicidal.
I experienced my first bout with suicide at age 12. As I type this, I just celebrated my 20th birthday--20 years of struggling uphill. I know what it is like to face odds seemingly greater than anyone can overcome.
What I would like to share with everyone is a little piece of wisdom that I have learned along the way. Sometimes even choked on it. Life as you know it today is not life as it is tomorrow. Things are constantly changing and the situations that you are facing now will not be the ones that you may be facing tomorrow. Our lives change with every breathe that we take, so then with that in mind, what is occurring in your life that you think can't change? What is making you think that suicide is the only answer?
If anyone out there ever needs to or wants to talk, please email me. I can assure you that I won't judge, laugh at you, or whatever. I am a person who merely wants to help you.
|07 Sep 2001||hold onto life||I've heard a lot of people say you shouldn't kill yourself because it would hurt those who are close to you. That is a terrible reason not to commit suicide. It's the typical sacrifice yourself for others crap which pervades so much of our society. I say, do what makes you happy, don't cater to the wants of others. Of course, if you're completely unhappy and want to end your life because all you feel day after day is this terrible pain eminating from your heart, I can relate to you. Sometimes I think the only way to end the pain is to take a 9mm to my forehead and pull the trigger. But I know things will be better in the future, if you take action and quit wallowing in your own sorrow. I think the best way to end depression is to find someone to fall in love with. Of course, getting your heart broken time after time causes many people to commit suicide, but hold on, there's someone out there who will love you and won't break your heart. And no, it's not Jesus or some bullshit fictional character made up by others to control you, it's another human being who will love you for your uniqueness and your individuality. It's just a matter of finding her (or him). There are a lot of resources on the web to help you find that person... write to me if you want to talk or need help in finding that special person who can pull you out of depression and make you happy.|
|03 Sep 2001||Lonely Guy||Don't do it. It isn't worth it. Just hang on for awhile and seek help. Life can get better. Not matter what life throws at you, it can and will change for the better.|
|03 Sep 2001||Here's the answer... Wait a day, a week, a year. As a sufferer from major depression, I often deal with suicide thoughts. Often thinking about the pain for those you leave behind is enough to stop me from ever going beyond first base. Believe me when I was thirteen I had a pretty bad life. But not as bad as some. Abused as a child, learning disabled, and living in a bad home, I can sympathize with someone who might be contemplating it. Ultimately, though it's not worth it. I mean think about it. Your are a special person who has ever right to be here. One day you will be able to decide what your life is about and what you do with it. Right now there are many things opening up to one at 13. New friends, girlfriends/boyfriends, the onset of the teenage years, and of course your future. I am glad at 31, I am still on the this planet, even if I had at times not wished it so. Even if my life didn't turn out the way I might have liked it, I still consider myself very lucky to be here. So chill, stay around for a while, talk to someone like a friend or teacher, and if you really feel like you will try anything, talk to a suicide counselor at a hotline.
And here's some bad thoughts on it. I tried suicide once and nearly killed myself. No pun intended! Of course I ended up in an emergency room and stayed a few weeks on a psych ward. While not a terrible experience, I could have made more productive time wasted. Not only that I ended up reaping the rewards of 15,000 dollars in medical bills. Of course at 13 that might not be a criteria for not trying suicide. Besides causing horrible pain and suffering, you also might regret it yourself. Here's a more morbid thought.
When most people try to kill themselves, they usually take the action of attempting to finish themselves off only to suddenly realize what they have done. I had it happen to me. After jumping, taking pills, pulling a trigger, or swimming, many people, who have survived of course, tell of terrible feelings of remorse and terror of leaving loved ones behind. When faced with death in a litteral sense, one's depression and hatred of life suddenly fade away. Only the most important things in life remain. Your loved ones and friends. So just think about that.
Besides many people do survive their attempts and that is terrible in itself physically. While good that they didn't actually die, chances are that you might end up disabled for life. What to be blind? Paralyzed from the neck down? How about living on a respirator and life support? It happens a lot. At 13, you really don't want to spend the rest of your life in a bed, paralized.
Here's something else for thought. If you feel that people or family are terrible to you and you don't care what happens to them, you might think about the consequences still. After all if you find yourself in an extremely abusive situation at school or home, killing yourself means they win. Whoever it is, an abusive parent or school child.
So think about the future if the present does not seem livable. Think about yourself first, love. Or the fact that your life will change no matter what in profoundly wonderful ways in the next couple of years. At 18 you can do whatever and be whomever you want to be. While life won't be a bed of roses, you will be able to remove yourself from any negative situations and move on. Believe me no matter what your life will change to what you decide it can be. So hang in there.
In ending, don't be afraid to seek help. Counselors and therapists are not scary people. They are there to help you. And believe me, they have seen and heard it all. If you find yourself in need of medication, don't fret. These days antidepressants are much, much better than they used to be. I have taken them for some time and my life would be far worse without them. While I don't recommended overdoing it with them, they can aid the most desperate situations. And don't be afraid if you actually try to commit suicide but decide to change your mind then. You can. Don't be afraid of checking into the emergency room for help. It is never too late. Even if you have severely harmed yourself. It takes a lot and then some to kill the human body. You would be surprised how much a human body can heal. So try and get help from someone if even a friend or classmate, seek professional assistance if you are severely unwell, and don't be afraid to allow others to help heal yourself.

|15 Aug 2001||Mr.X||I'm not saying it's ok to kill yourself, in fact I escaped death many times, only to find out that my life is starting to fall into place, although I haven't completely found the answer to why
I'm here, it's starting to come to me, I just want certain people to understand that these people who want to kill themselves need to hear down to earth answers, not this petty " you're stupid for trying to kill yourself, or God said not to commit suicide........ These people need to be comforted by others helping them find away out of their deep depressions, like I have, only I had to do it on my own...... IF ANYONE IS THINKING ABOUT COMMITING SUICIDE FOR WHATEVER REASON AT LEAST GIVE ME AN E-MAIL, I'M NOT HERE TO PRESSURE ANYONE, I'M NOT HERE TO CONVINCE YOU NOT TO, BUT I MIGHT BE ABLE TO REALLY GET YOU TO THINK ABOUT YOUR SITUATION, AND I'M EXPERIENCED IF YOU DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW, BUT MY LAST MESSAGE THAT I POSTED, HOPEFULLY I CAN HELP YOU TRY AND FIND SOME ANSWERS BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!! MY ADDRESS IS firstname.lastname@example.org
|13 Aug 2001||email me||death is no joke. i don't think that you people are sick. i think that you just have very serious problems, i mean i have a suicidal mother and i know what it's like but there are other answers. and to all you people that say they are crazy, they are not crazy, they are just people who really have no one to talk to and need someone there. so if any of you ever need someone to talk to email me. my email is email@example.com|
|20 Jul 2001||Simon||You shouldn't. go down mac donalds and get yourself a milk shake, then go to the ice rink and skate, even if you never done it before, you'll feel better.|
|22 Jun 2001||Danubis||mmmmm.... well, i guess i have just one thing to say. I have been in the suicide situation and have nearly gone the long walk. The only way to kill yourself when you're thirteen is wait till your fourteenth birthday. Then killing yourself won't be an issue because hopefully by that time you will have woken up and realised that suicide is really the chickens way out. My advice and i plead you to take it, is to, stick to all those you think are against you by becoming the best person you can be. For example, if guys at school beat you up every lunch for your money. Do this, offer to buy them lunch, it may sound silly but soon they will realise that you do not care for the money. You just hate being picked on (but feed yourself as well). Soon they will forget the game because you no longer present a challenge. They will instead move on to someone else. And if you think your parents are ragging (getting up you) to much or perhaps you are unfortunate enough to be in an abusive family. Tell them you love them and you hope that one day you can love your children as much as they love you. Because really when you turn my age, you realise that all those people who crapped on you when you're young eventually disappear from your surroundings, unless you punish yourself by staying near them. There is one rule i live by and i ask you to live by the same. Death comes to us all, why rush it........|
|18 Jun 2001||Erica||DONT KILL YOURSELF! YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR NO MATTER WHAT YOUR AGE! Talk to someone if you are thinking about doing it. if you ever need someone to talk to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org|

|20 May 2001||B||don't do it at all, so many people would be crushed. Doesn't matter how bad you think things are, they WILL get better, guarenteed, killing yourself should never be an option, i'm serious. Talk to someone, here are the facts of life, they are true, they are true.
1. At least 5 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. If not for you, someone may not be living.
9. You are special and unique.
10.Someone that you don't know even exists loves you.
12. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.
13. When you think you have no chance at getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, you probably sooner or later will get it.
14. Always remember compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
