    What are you doing successfully to help pull back from the darkness?
    Friends? Family? Did you find a job perhaps? A new place to live?
    Please share what gave or continues to give you the strength to overcome choosing death.

    What are you doing successfully to help pull back from the darkness?

    i remind myself that the acute feeling of wanting to die will pass withing 20 minutes about as long as it takes for a craving for alcohol or drugs to pass....i learned that in treatment and it is true...whats left after the acute feeling is exhaustion and i handle that by changing my physical surroundings whether its going to another room, turning on the tv or going outside....also different physical stimuli like taking a hot shower helps.

    My family, writing poems, short stories, daydreaming has always helped me. Forums itself has helped me.
    Friends, laughing, tv shows. Finding new interests.
