    it's hard to tell who succeeds and who simply stops interacting with the forum's members. don't push your luck, and don't try please.

    it's like wierd said. the ones that have made it can't really tell you about it.

    i was afraid the last time i tried...that i would mess up and hurt myself for good.

    it is something that you can't really undo so if you really must......
    do it right or don't do it at all.

    that is really quite harsh...but true. :/

    take care. stay safe.

    I know of many who have ended their lives, but did they really succeed? I guess it depends on the perspective you take. Those who continue to fight and make it through day by day are successful to me. Despite everything, they refuse to give up. Only you can decide what is success in your eyes. I hope you choose to continue the fight and find your success in life, not in ending life. :hug:

    Yeah, I knew a guy who succeeded, and several others who tried. If you've never been through it, you have no idea what it feels like to lose someone that way. Or even just to have someone you care about try...
    But I agree with gentlelady - the successes are the ones who keep fighting, sometimes even after they've tried - the one's who do everything in their power to take care of themselves and get back on their feet.

    a number of years ago a good friend who was living with my sister passed away reportedly at his own hands. my sister was shattered , it being all the harder for her later in the year when my younger brother was married because they had planned to do the same the next year.
    it took me by surprise and actually stopped me from making an attempt myself at the time because i was so close to trying.
    my family contacts have become somewhat less these past few years though.

    yeah, i know a guy who succesfully killed himself. Although, he was a selfish asshole because he left behind a girl (my friend's sister) who was pregnant with his child. Now shes left taking care of the child by herself, which has caused her to drop out of school so she can work to support her kid.

    I had a friend who succeeded in killing himself, and he wasn't even trying to.

    Some guys have all the luck.

    Its very possible qwert.

    Its not even relevant on how determind the individual is to end their life.

    Its more to do with the method they choose.

    I kind of agree with someones comments in this thread that those who choose to fight on are the ones that succeed.

    Guess I'm teatering on the fence at the moment :(
  14. My friend Ian and friend Sheri succeeded.

    I wish they didn't...

    Well, if you believe that succeeding is killing yourself, then based on the statistics, many people do succeed; however, since they are dead, they can't log back on the forum and say 'hey I succeeded.' I believe that the one's who really succeed are the ones who reclaim their lives. The failures are the ones who kill themselves.

    Each of us measure success in our own ways. I hope you come to the conclusion that success is beating your depression and the need to take your life. Others can then share in your success.

    my uncle and friend did both on overdoses so yes it is possible. Both left behind a wife, children and families, but they own pain was ended. How I wish I could be with them, and have the luck they did.

    I don't think you really want to share the same fate as them lost child. None of us know for sure what is on the other side or if it's better or worse than being here. Some believe that we will go to heaven when we die. I honestly don't, and I'm a Catholic. I believe when we commit suicide we become disembodied spirits and roam around aimlessly.

    I know a few people that committed suicide. One kid, 16 yrs old, because he placed 3rd in a bodybuilding contest instead of 1st. Another teen guy shot himself the next state over because his girl broke up with him. There's no doubt that they greatly hurt friends and family.

    I tried unsuccessfully in 1989 and actually caused damage to my heart.

    There is no easy way out people...
