|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?
|26 Apr 2010||stephanie||I cannot answer this question because I odn't think anyone should kill themselves. Everyone has the right and will to live whther it be for themselves or for others even if you find yourself staring out your second story windoe like I do many times life for you isn't over. Think of it this way, the worst is gone and all you have to do is go up. I know it's hard a lot of the time believe me I know! But what I do is think of a family, my future family. I think of the three little girls I want to have Annabelle, Elizabeth, and Nicolette and I think of us playing at the park and I think of what each kid will be like. Annabelle will be into tea parties and PETA and Elizabeth will play soccer and take kickboxing lessons while Nicolette plays tennis and volunteers at the local elderly nursing home. I dream if I have a husband and I dream if I don't. I know that a lot of people who think people who think about suicide are weak but I personally believe they are the strongest. They live with the lingering feeling of hopelessness each and every day and fight a personal battle along with everything else another person would. We are different and we are stronger. It's all a matter of keeping our act together and winning. Dream of something like the family I dream about each and every day and go for it. Talk to somebosy too. Not about going suicide unless you want to but just to vent. It always helps!|

No offense, but suicide is stupidity. Some kids don't even make it out of the womb, yet others are willing to take their lives away after a few failures and struggles. No matter what situation you're in, there's a way to change it without harm. And there's probably someone else in the world who has it worse.
Life should be cherished, not wasted on depression and guilt. The next time you feel sad, smile, even if you don't want to, force yourself to smile and laugh. This will be phony for the first few moments of change but trust me, it'll turn your whole day around.
I've been there before. Each day I have to live with neglect from my own mother and members of my community. Each day I'm faced with poverty and racism. But sure enough, as soon as I smile all of my fears fade away. Just try it the next time you're feeling down in the dumps. Or the next time you've hit rock bottom. It'll make all the difference. I'll always be here to help anyone.
|22 Apr 2010||Hope||I just came across this site and it makes me very sad to read all the things that people are posting. I am sure that you have something to live for, if not now then live for your future!! You can get out of the situation you're in now, but you don't have to take your life. Somebody loves you <3 If you're feeling suicidal you should try calling a toll-free suicide prevention hotline like 1-800-273-8255. Someone will be there to listen to you and may even save your life :)Hope|
|19 Apr 2010||JS||I am a 19 year old guy, and I think that what you created...your "suicide kit" is sick and twisted thing to do. Suicide is something that should not be taken lightly, and I believe that people need to be educated in the aftermath of suicide and what should be done if you have suicidal thoughts. I have had many friends die, due to suicide, and a couple friends who have attempted, and will never try it again because it was to painful, and they decided that they wanted to live. I have had suicidal thoughts myself, but never acted on them. I love life to much, and I hope people will feel the same way. If you ever want to talk to someone who knows nothing about your life, someone who is impartial and someone who will always be willing to lend an ear, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I hope whoever reads this takes my words to heart and will either try to talk to someone in their life, or email me.|
|19 Apr 2010||MK||Stop. Please stop and try to hang on.
Take a moment and stand back mentally from everything that is happening. You know suicide is wrong and will hurt others. There may be some very special, wonderful things ahead for you -- but you can't find out unless you continue on your journey.
Examine your health. There is likely a connection between your the way your brain works and how your body is working. Are you tired? Been sitting too much? A little walk sometimes really helps. Eating a lot of stuff that is comforting but not so good for you... or not eating enough (blood sugar too low)? Make sure you get enough water too. Dehydration can really make us feel draggy. I realize NOW that when I was in my teens and 20s my hormones were off the chart and I was probably low in Magnesium and B vitamins -- very important to prevent depression. Suicide is not the answer, ever, for anyone. It helps to find a higher power too. Without getting preachy, I believe God is there and watching over us. Someone created all that we know, and there is some reason for it. Some very unusual things have happened in my life that were so striking it was if someone was answering my prayers. It convinced me.
A lot of depression stems from being alone, not living up to our expectations, deep seated anger we find hard to express (punch on a pillow or mattress for a while), emotional hurt or humiliation. I'm over 50 and I've been through some very emotionally bad shit. I know full well what many of you are feeling and talking about at your worst depths.
Sometimes the answers aren't in our grasp. But they will come. Do the best you can and hang in there. You have more power than you may realize right now. Try some new things. Doing the same things over and over will only give you the same results. Also -- life is always changing. Time goes quickly -- a year or two many things may be very different for you and give you more options. May peace find you, God put his blessings upon you. You are loved, you are part of the human race. You belong here. We are all meant to learn and go forward. Suicide is never the answer. Hang in there my friends. Let the door of life continue to open for you. Take some deep breaths, relax, listen to some nice music and tell yourself you are important. There are others who love you. Believe it. Remember the good things you have done and said. Get some sun. Do not let other people define who you are by their negative comments or actions. It may be the only way they can feel important and in time hopefully they will learn how hurtful they are. Keep living. Hang on and try to make small changes one by one. You can do it. Good luck my friends, your stories have touched me. I wish you well -- with wonderful solutions and great happiness that you are destined to discover.
|12 Apr 2010||ted||hey, i've attempted suicide heaps of times. but im on the recovery, i found the best way to live is to be honest with yourself. im happy to here your stories.
my name is ted, and my email is email@example.com
|07 Apr 2010||Jordan||I don't have a reason to kill myself, sure everything around me is horrible at times and might be worse for the person beside me, but i wanted to post on this site just to share what keeps me alive and keeps the door that hides all those bad things locked. Music, for me music is everything and i want to help people realize that it can do so much by just closing your eyes and listening, every emotion, every feeling anything that's ever happened to you can be expressed through music and you can feel it when you listen. It might make you sad, or angry, or even suicidal but in the end music is still there, it never leaves and doesn't care if you're big or ugly or what anyone thinks about you cause it's there for you.|
|03 Apr 2010||sohusoti||I wonder.
I suppose I count as suicidal too. That's a long story.
Please do hang in there, all of you. I feel terrible and hypocritical saying that, because I barely do myself.
If anyone wants to talk, I'll also offer my email.
Also, an IQ of 91 is perfectly within the average range
|02 Apr 2010||leo machado||Technically, cut your veins, but your own body will not let you,your body systems are made for you so you can't hurt yourself without PAIN.

|02 Apr 2010||Lynden (here for you)||Hey, my name is Lynden. I am 19 and a psychology major.
I've been sitting at my computer for the past hour and a half reading these tales about suicide attempts, people hating their lives, hating their evil parents, emo 12 year old "sluts" who contradict themselves... I know that you are all having a hard time and that you think that the only way out is to die.
I'm not here to say, "You have so much to live for" or "Suicide is for cowards"...
I just want to put out there that... The only reason that some of you feel so alone, is because you are MAKE yourselves alone... You are driving people away by cutting your selves, etc. Your behaviours are socially unacceptable.
We ALL want some one to love us and trust us, and we all want our parents to quit yelling at us. A lot o what you people describe happens to me on a regular basis. But I CHOOSE to let it pass... sure I cry over it sometimes. But I CHOOSE to get over it.
Death is not the easy way out. As I've read, most of you know that you will likely hurt a shit ton of people if you kill yourselves. If you REALLY want to disappear, don't die... run away. Sure it'll still hurt some people, but at least when you pull your shit together, and come back.... they will be overwhelmed to see you! You can tell them what you've been up to, tell them the crazy stories about good and bad things that have happened. I and I'm rambling...
Basically, my point is... don't take the stupid way out. You'll just hate yourself even more.
I had suicidal thought at one point in my life... at it was then that i did a little carving in my arm. It says "ani ohevet otah" which is hebrew for "I love you". it is a constant reminder of my stupidity, and of the fact that, despite my flaws, i am a truly beautiful person, and I love me.
If you wanna respond, or talk to me.. firstname.lastname@example.org
|29 Mar 2010||Betsy||The sky is the limit on ways to die. It depends on what your goal is. No pain, or a big show, or very little fanfare.
But, before you decide on a method, also do a few other things.
If you're going to kick it, you should spend your last days doing all the things you always wanted to do, but were too scared to try because of the consequences. I mean, if you've got nothing left to lose, then you have everything to gain.
Afraid to talk to someone you like, or tell someone off that you hate? If you're going to die anyway, you have nothing to fear. And it can be fun.
Always wanted to swim, or dance, or gamble, or give someone a wedgy, or save someone's life? Don't be afraid of what anyone will say to you or think of you. You can do it. You've got nothing to lose.
And by the way, if you haven't seen a live bear outside of a cage, you should definitely do that before you die. It is one of the coolest things you'll ever experience. Just go to a national park (they are free to the public)in bear country and go for a hike. You'll be amazed at the wild animals you see. Some of them are dangerous, but you have nothing to fear from them, because you're on your way out.
And make sure to do all the things that would make the people you hate jealous of you, because they are too afraid to step up and get what they want. They deserve to see you succeed at something that they want for themselves. Stick it to em!
Oh and make sure you visit any of your long lost relatives and get to the bottom of all their stories. Their legacy may end with you, so you need to get to know them and document their lives for them, so that someone will remember them. Hopefully, you'll be remembered too.
|25 Mar 2010||Kat||I hope that in posting your question you will read, really read this response. Im 28 and I want you to know that the nice thing about how you feel, is that you are NOT alone. With that being said, you have to really start to realize that as you go through different stages of your life, you go through different phases.
Honestly, when you're thinking about suicide, you are in a stage of self loathing (hating yourself) and usually the reason you have this hate for yourself is because there has been an outside source that has been telling you..."your worthless, waste of space, etc" even if you may not have someone like that, sometimes WE can be our very own worst critics, killing ourselves inside with everything we criticize ourselves about.
What I want you to know, for right now...Is that however old you are...13? maybe 12? Today and the situations you are in Will NOT last forever.
You were born, with a future ahead of you where you will make people's days, give them a reason to smile, you will save someones life, you will count, and you count now, but you have to acknowledge it and own your life.
Dont allow yourself to never feel what its like to turn 18, or fall in love, or meet a famous actor that you love!
Theres so much more, than the sad things happening right now around you.
You are so much more powerful than you know, you can change your world.
I hope you change your mind about how you feel about yourself and this decision.
You are too much of a treasure.
EACH of us has a bigger purpose in this puzzle of life.
|16 Mar 2010||guest||I KNOW LIFE SUCKS, BT U HAV TO BE STRONG TO DEAL WITH ITS DIFFICULTIES.....
|14 Mar 2010||Josh||To all those in pain...
I am here for you. And once I establish myself i will help you. I will give meaning to your lives and help you to make your dreams a reality. As a previous sufferer of depression and suicidal fantasies I know what it feels like. But i worked through it. And I want to give you the strength to do the same. So email me before you end it all and give me a chance to help you. You might just change your mind...
|02 Mar 2010||BuffyDecember||This message is for LOST WANDERER.......I read your post and sympathize with your pain and disgust with life. But suicide is not the answer and neither is cutting. If you haven't cut in 3 months, DO NOT START AGAIN. Please visit a website I found that has been a real help to me. It is www.twloha.com. Help is here and hope is real.|
|01 Mar 2010||Mike Hawk||Listen to me. I stumbled onto this site accidentally but I'm so glad that I did. I really think that it is sick that people are advising a teenager the best ways to kill themselves rather than finding a more rational solution.
It pains me to read all the posts that are revealing the pain and suffering that some of you feel. Some may be fake, but I know some are not.
To those that believe in God, always knwo that he is there with you no matter hwo lonely you feel. However, God cannot force you to be happier, you have to to get up and make an effort yourself. My those of you who have families, always remember that suicide hurts them more than it hurts you. There is often a chain of depression and potential suicide of those who love you after you die. They will dwell on your death and be tortured forever, please think about them if you don't care about yourself.
Try to have faith, and know that hurting yourself is NEVER the way to go.
I hope everyone eventually finds the path that leads them away from self harm and to a life of happiness. I sincerely do.
|08 Feb 2010||Jennifer||Children suffer many things that most people don't understand. Before I was thirteen I tried to kill myself on several occasions. i thought i was alone and had nothing to really live for. It was the only option and all i could think about was how great it would be to finally get some sleep. But in all honestly no one is qualified to tell people how to kill themselves because anyone that is capable of typing it obviously has never been successful. I'm 17 now and haven't tried to kill myself in over a year which is a huge accomplishment for me because i usually don't last 6 months. So if anyone needs someone to talk to please email me at email@example.com...i know its not the most inspiring email but i will lend anyone an ear. Please don't hesitate, i'm here for you|
|01 Feb 2010||Cassie||Does it make any difference whether you're under or over 13?
Regardless, I wanted to say that I'm here if anyone needs to talk. I'm willing to listen and I care.
|12 Jan 2010||jimmy||here's some things i think you should have in your kit. by the time you go to the kit you will be serious about it and probably not talking to anyone so here are a few ideas. a cd with music that makes u happy or feel good. a card from anyone that is signed "Love" could be a parent or grandparent or friend. maybe even several cards. a pic of u and someone close to u. maybe even this email from someone u dont even know that is reaching out to you|
|11 Dec 2009||I'm sure I can't even begin to imagine what you've been and are going through. A few years ago I was suicidal. I couldn't see a way out of my pain. I didn't want to die, but I didn't want to live either. I wanted to wake up from the nightmare that was my life. One night I had it all planned out and I put a knife to my chest, ready to end my life. But as the knife was pressing against me I thought about what a friend told me about God. He told me that Jesus died to take the punishment for my sins. He told me that God loved me. I realize you may not believe in God, I'm just telling you my experience. It changed my life. I dropped the knife and in tears I raised my hands and said, If you're there God, I'll live for you, make yourself real to me. And He did, I didn't see a vision or anything, but I knew He was real. (Could anyone look at the Mona Lisa and claim no one made it because they couldnt see the artist? There is intelligent design, so someone made it; and just looking at how amazingly detailed we are proves that there is an intelligent designer who made us.) God didn't only give me hope; He gave me a new life. He forgave my sins and changed my heart. I haven't dealt with those thoughts in years, and now I'm a genuinely happy, content person. I'm new. Everything outside of me didn't change, but God changed me. And He can enter your life too if you want. (You can see www.thekristo.com for more about what Jesus did for you.)
I definitely encourage you to talk with someone you can trust (a parent, pastor, school counselor, psychiatrist) about what you're feeling. It is so helpful when someone else can help you carry the weight of your pain and offer you a fresh perspective on things.
I don't have all the answers, but I do know one thing... you have value. You matter. Suicide is a pemanent solution to a temporary problem. You will get through this ans see much brighter days.
