    its gunna be intresting to see how far this goes.

    my question is,

    how many of you folks consider suicide, post your thoughts .... when you have been drinking or have been using drugs?
    im not trying to start a problem. i just think it will be intresting to see the responses.

    the 2 times that i attempted it, and the time i talked about it and it went into the wrong ears ... i hadnt been doing either.

    im intrested to see if booze has a bigger impact when thoughts of suicide or the attempt is made.

    Me either, actually alcohol makes me feel better, numbs me.

    alcohol and drugs are an escape enough for me, that is why I try not to use them because they could easily become a slow suicide for me since they provide such immediate relief to the pain I am feeling. So, to answer your question, no I usually don't have increased suicidal urges when drinking or using drugs because I have numbed them out. Granted, I do get more impulsive when using, but not enough to actually go through with it.

    I am allergic to alcohol, never smoked and have not taken any form of medication since I was 5.

    I'm suicidal when I drink, suicidal when I don't. I'm not sure it makes much of a difference, except that alcohol does tend to calm me down a bit. I don't do any other mind-altering drugs.

    I only drink during the holidays because they are a rough time for me..The rest of the year I don't drink and I don't use drugs..My suicidal thoughts are there all the time.. I have learned to cope with them thru therapy..When I get really down I am quite calm when I think of ending it..

    Alcohol is a depressant, so I'm sure it pushes people along, but all of my attempts I've decided to do it before I ever drank or took anything.

    I drink alot and smoke alot of pot. I'm not depressed because I do these things, I do these things because I'm depressed. Its the only way of escape, besides death, which I'm sure I'll end up doing pretty soon...

    Not suicidal, but I think more about it when I'm drunk. Or about emptiness and death.
