I just heard a statistic stating something like 20 percent of teens have or have had thoughts of suicide. This number kind of surprised me. Have any of you guys ever seriously thought about killing yourself?


PS, I'm not suicidal.

I've thought about what it would be like, but no, I've never actually considered it.

no.

i mean there have been times where i was mad or upset and was like "oh i should just kill myself."

but i never actually considered doing it.
#17
I think it crosses everyones mind occasionally, but not seriously.

However, I do plan on committing suicide.

Not soon, but I just want to have the control to choose when I die.

I don't like surprises.

I'm sorry, but if you've never thought about killing yourself, you're not human. We all think about our mortality and what it would be like to die, which inherently leads to thoughts about suicide.

There are just varying "degrees" of thinking about it.

i think everyone has at one point, but very few people take it seriously i mean, who hasnt wondered what it would be like, to jump from the roof of your school, or walk infront of a bus, or even slit your wrists, but the people that have trouble differenciating between these thoughts, and reality, have serious problems. i know i would never do it, but i'd be lying if i told you i hadnt thought about it, not from a "man im so depressed" thing, but more of a "i wonder what it would be like if i" nothing serious.

thats normal right?....RIGHT?
#22
no way, a life is not something to waste.
thinks can always get better or worse, killing oneself is not the answer.

however, i kill other people all the time.

EDIT: like that aaron guy said, i've thought about it like what if i...
but if you mean seriously considered, no way, and i never will.

I used to be suicidal, never tired it though, on my mind all the time. That was WAY back though, something clicked though, I still think about it but I know I'll never do it now. Death seems kinda pointless if you can have life, no matter how rough it is.

Yeah, I have once. But I had really let go of myself and didn't even care to see what else was out there. Pretty stupid. But now life is amazing and I see suicide as selfish.

I consider myself a pretty laid-back, happy guy. But I think about suicide all the time, even recently.

Life is just so hard, you know? I'm about to graduate, and my future is not working out for me. This just scares the **** out of me, you know? And I think about suicide almost daily, but then I weigh the pros and cons, and the emotional "I don't want to disappoint my friends and family" always kicks in and I never know what to do, so I decide to roll with the punches until it's finally time.

Never considered it or tried it, but thought if my friends and stuff would miss me, and all that crap. I hate being a teenager, and having those random little bouts of depression that last for a few days.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

i couldnt even consider suicide. its the greatest sin there is, because you cant repent for it or atleast thats what my priest said. and besides god only gives me one life, why woiuld i waste it because im going through some hard times?

Well there is a difference between thinking about what it would be like to die or what would happen if you killed youself and the actual highly depressed stuff.

one point in my life it got to the point where i hated living, but was too scared to be dead.
and that fear is what ultimately kept me alive.

#36
Never though about doing it seriously. I'm too level-headed for that.

But I have contemplated my hypothetical suicide, and it's possible effects, extensively.
#37
once, i even had it planned out so that my family wouldnt find my body.

only thing is, im both a coward, and too brave for that. think about it. it takes guts to kill yourself, but its the cowards way out.

so im both to chicken, and too badass.

Quote by necrosis1193

#38
I have, yes. But I wouldn't think of it as a "serious" contemplation, as I was young and naive at the time. More often than not, I would think about simply running away from home, rather than suicide.
#39
i thought of it seriously when i was on drugs because i was in a downward spiral of hell.

and im sure there are alot more that 20% with all these emo's around here

The idea of suicide has crossed my mind several times . I've thought of ending my life few times but I'm a coward I'm scared of the pain involved in the procedure not death. If somebody would give me a bloody cyanide I'd eat it without even having second thoughts
