    Is it possible to survive hanging yourself? I know ODing is pretty unreliable.

    Yep you could end up brain damaged if someone finds you before you die. And that's maybe a possibility because it's hard to do it properly and die straight away. You would probably hang choking for a few minutes before you die.

    I actually want to "feel" death, so choking is not much a problem. The brain damage/surviving is what I want to avoid.

    Yes it's possible. Rope can break, whatever the rope is supported on could break, noose is done incorrectly, someone finds you before you die, etc.

    Well I learned how to tie a hangman's knot, took about five seconds. Thanks wiki.

    Just now I went downstairs to my basement because there is a beam where I can hang myself - I just wanted to look at it. But then I saw a skipping rope so I made the noose and proceeded to tie the other end to the beam. The rope was bit too long, I was standing on a chair and I put the rope around my neck and I started to crouch so I could feel the tightning around my neck (by this time my legs were shaking a bit, but I felt "alive" for the first time in years . I had this exhilirating moment - finally something was happening to me. I wanted to see if the rope could handle my weight so I grabbed the top with my hands, however I didn't seem to tie it to the beam properly it came loose and I fell.

    Please don't do it. What if you end up regretting it and it's ends up being to late? How horrible would that be?

    Yes. I'm proof of that.

    It is definately a harsh way to go (also a rather ineffective one.), not one to pick lightly.

    I hope you can find some good people to help you feel better, there are some great people around here.

    if u are unsucessful in achieving death by hanging, you'd end up with a broken neck, paralysed from neck to toe and have to live on like this for the rest of your life.

    yes it is definitely possible to survive hanging. first you could be found early and end up in a vegetable state with permanent life long brain damage, you will never be able to take care of yourself again or enjoy the few good things that we have in life. secondly, half way through the hanging process the rope could snap and therefore you could also end up brain damaged. hanging is not the way to go..

    The route you should take is getting some help, see a doctor,therapist,psychiatrist ,anyone. once you are sure that your on the road to recovery your suicidal feelings should disappear.

    good luck, stay safe and take care :hug:
