    Well, many have been mislead by the Forum's name. Some will just leave, others stay. But when you first discovered SF for the first time, what was your purpose? Searching for methods or just a forum to talk about suicide?

    Me? Just looking for a forum. I already have a wide knowledge about methods so... *runs*

    Part of the reason I was looking was for a community of people to get together to kill themselves but I don't know where to find that. Sick I know...

    I was looking for methods, maybe that is the ploy of the power of google? To lead you here instead I am glad it did.

    oh I don't run but I am right behind you :smoke:

    Wanted to get better. Goals have since changed... I mostly come here out of boredom.

    I was originally planning- and looking for methods.
    Still want to die alot of the time, but I think that for the most part- a community like this has a positive affect on my psyche.

    I already had a method, I was just wanting to confirm that it would work. I will admit that by the name I was expecting a forum that was basically all pro-suicide or whatever, but I like the community here and like that there is a whole bunch of people out there who understand exactly what I'm going through.

    I was suicidal, and I was just googling it, whether it was for methods, or a way to talk myself out of it without involving anyone in real life. Depended on my mood...but I'm so glad that I found this site, it's helped a lot. I still have bad days, but for the most part, I'm in better shape than when I first came here.

    I was starting to have suicidal thoughts every day, and had a lot of questions and worries about it. I came here because I felt completely alone and needed support.

    I was looking for methods but I stuck around because I think deep down I just can't do it to my daughter right now.

    I googled "suicide"... I was about planning my suicide but ended up here instead and I'm glad for that.

    I was googling methods, joined to see if i could scavenge any info. When i couldn't i stopped using the site for 3 months, then one day went into chat, and things kinda took off from there.

    While I have a T and a Pdoc, I do not feel at ease talking about suicide with them. Also, other forums do not like for anyone say that they plan on suicide. When I feel an urge, I can come here and write it down. Makes me feel better.

    I was looking for a forum where I could talk openly
    about my suicidal thoughts.

    I am so glad I found SF. This is, in my opinion, the best
    forum on the internet.

    I came across this forum by chance. I was searching suicide websites on Google and saw this forum. I thought it was a forum for people who supported suicide, at which point I was going to leave the website, but when I saw it was actually a helpful resource I decided to join and give it a shot. I figured I'd be able to find some folks who felt the same pain that I do...and I have been able to.

    I've only been a member for less than a month, but already I've met some wonderful people who have helped me, and I hope that maybe, I've helped them. :)

    I came looking for methods, but found a support system where I could let my thoughts out and get feed back. And I've stayed to help others and to have an outlet for my stress
