    Just edited this slightly because I didn't mean the title to sound accusing, as if this forum would never, ever help anyone. I just wanted to know if maybe any of the senior members or anyone else had started to feel better since using the forum, and had used it less accordingly, or maybe stayed on to help other feels better too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it could be done. But it ain't the answer. You'll end up messing up that persons life because they'll probly be charged with assisted suicide or something. I think this site has helped me. When I first joined it was because I wanted some insight in to how others deal with their emotions and so on. I guess the good thing about the internet these days is that you can never always feel alone. People here let me know and make me feel that I'm not alone. I'm not some loser that should just fuck off. Because we're all in this together :)

    I hope you get help soon, or if you go along with your plan - that someone else gets help for you :(


    Edit: some of what I said may seem odd because your post was edited but anyways :tongue:

    At first it did, then it kinda went downhill.

    I mainly stay on here now to help everyone else

    Oh, I was really confused by the first part of your message, and then I realised that'd you'd read the first post before I'd edited it! It's probably good I did because I just found out about not sharing suicide methods here.

    It has helped me from going over the edge a lot of times. I think it's down to having people to talk to that can relate and the fact that a lot of people here, even though they have their own problems, are willing to offer as much support as they can.
    There are good things in this world and this forum is one of the best.

    I think if you are willing to accept the help then it can, I admit sometimes myself I have not listened and rebelled almost in order to sabotage myself, but overall yes it can help a lot, and I am grateful that there is a place like this around.

    I think that this forum is very helpful for people going through a crisis and suicidal.

    I have to say despite the length of time I have been on here, I have only found one person who even talks to me and is even kind enough to help me.

    It appears everyone else isn't interested. I just post stuff to myself for the hell of it.

    this forum had for sure helped me.... I find it helps me get my thoughts straight just by putting it out there.... And I've found almost everyone here very non-judgmental (there are always exceptions)..... And lastly even the days I'm to distraught to post, I find just the act of reading others posts helps me feel slightly less alone.... But it's pretty personal, what helps one person may not the next... But I believe here is worth the try....
