I recently took a combination of otc drugs which I had heard could be lethal. I probably shouldn't say which drugs these were, because some people's bodies might have reacted differently, but in my case, nothing happened. I guess at some level I was fairly sure it wouldn't, because if it were very likely, surely there would've been more incidents, and these meds would've been taken off the shelf by now. Still, does the fact that I wasn't 100 % it wouldn't kill me technically make it a suicide attempt? The only reason I took them was the potential lethality-I wasn't trying to get attention or anything. Nobody even knew I took them until a few days later when I confided in one of only two close friends I have. The people that I guess I was partly trying to "get back at", by ending my life, never found out about this.
