I would say to anyone who feels on the verge of ending it all don't! Do something completely outrageous like get in your car and start driving when you get to water, get on a boat, then just keep going. Set a goal in your mind, irrelevant of how dangerous or ridiculous it may sound (what have you got to lose) and go for it. walk across Europe, join a monastery, go on the run and join a tribe. The world is too big a place for you to end it all when you haven't explored alternatives to your existing life. You never know where it my lead you.
In answer to the question, I don't think it's wrong but I think there are better options.

Sez you! Here is a case where you and I have a difference of opinion of what is LIVING or being alive. To me...to truly be ALIVE...one must become more than a bunch of cells getting along. Just to be alive is not enough for the Human Condition. If this is all you retain...then you are Dead already. Split Infinity
Yes, but this, as I said, is the problem. It opens floodgates which some can exploit. Where do you draw the line?
That is the question.edit on 15-4-2012 by petrus4 because: (no reason given)
If they made it easier it would be less messy. Too bad people are forced to choose messy methods that have such a high risk of failure...

That's right keep on listening to big pharma and say pop a pill and you will be happy it's a chemical thingy in your brain, I know cuz I read it somewhere by doctor something....
Just pop a pill and it'll go away! Happiness by the milligram!
F*** pills and big pharma, heal yourself that's what I've been doing and still alive after 12 years so it's possible to live without the drugs, drugs are not always the answer ( or in my case never have been)
Peace not pills
Warning to Britain as almost half of Belgium's euthanasia nurses admit to killing without consent
By Simon Caldwell
A high proportion of deaths classed as euthanasia in Belgium involved patients who did not ask for their lives to be ended, a study found.
More than 100 nurses admitted to researchers that they had taken part in 'terminations without request or consent'.
Although euthanasia is legal in Belgium, it is governed by strict rules which state it should be carried out only by a doctor and with the patient's permission.
The disturbing revelation - which shows that nurses regularly go well beyond their legal role - raises fears that were assisted suicides allowed in Britain, they could never be properly regulated.
Since its legalisation eight years ago, euthanasia now accounts for 2 per cent of deaths in Belgium - or around 2,000 a year.
The researchers found that a fifth of nurses admitted being involved in the assisted suicide of a patient.
But nearly half of these - 120 of 248 - also said there was no consent.
'The nurses in our study operated beyond the legal margins of their profession,' said the report's authors in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
