Hi everyone. I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this... but after reading a couple that were in here, I'm curious as to why "so many" (i do not have actual statistics) people chose to overdose, and why "so many" fail. Obviously, the choice to OD isn't foolproof, but where did the idea start? Where do people find the medicine they chose to overdose with? I guess for me , I would make sure that if I overdosed, it would have a better chance of killing me than leaving me in critical condition after failing to stop my heart from beating. - suicidal teen By the way are questions on methods allowed in this forum? I am not contemplating using them, but I'm suicidal because I think about it everyday .
