Quick/painless way to kill oneself?

8 posts in this topic

I've decided it's time for me to meet my maker. I need to think of an easy and pain-free way to do myself in. I've thought of a few, but they all have their drawbacks in some way, most of them aren't as painless as I would like. Here's what I've thought about so far. - I definitely don't want to jump, because if the impact doesn't end up killing me, I would end up totally deformed and paralyzed the rest of my life, and the whole ordeal would be extremely painful. I also don't know very many accessable high places. - Hanging myself is out too, because I hear it's actually quite painful. - Drowning myself is out for the same reason as hanging. In fact, anything that involves the inability to breathe is pretty much out of the question. - Can't shoot myself because I don't own a gun. Can't get a gun cause I'm a convict. Can't get a gun under the table cuase I don't know any gangsters. - Pills. I've tried downing a bottle of sleepers before (ambien), but I just woke up two days later with a memory lapse and didn't know where I was. Maybe if I can get valuum or something. This could also backfire however, because I could end up becoming a vegatable instead of dead if I don't take enough. Or I could end up barfing up my intestines, which would be painful. Preferably something that's more of a sure death. - Kill somebody, turn myself in, and request the death penalty. Lethal injection is supposedly painless. The obvious drawback is that I would have to go through the whole beurocratic and time-consuming criminal justice system, and I would get a bunch of bad publicity that I wouldn't want. The other drawback is that I might just get life in prison, and I don't really want to be Bubba's girlfriend for the rest of my life. So this is pretty much out of the question unless I can't think of anything else. - Strap a bomb to my chest, and blow something up, like a bus or something. Though I really don't want to kill any innocent civilians. Maybe if I blew up a government building or military installation or something, then I could make a political statement in the process. Any suggestions?

I hear drowning as actually relatively painless as long as you're actually breathing the water as opposed to holding your breath.

I recommend starvation, it'll give you plenty of time to think about what you're doing. If you can stay commited to your desire to die for that long, then damnit, you deserve to die.

Close your garage. Start the car(steal one if you don't have any). Wait... You won't notice a thing except for maybe some bad smell

Or just tape a plastic bag over your head. As the oxygen levels drop you'll be knocked unconscious and you won't feel the pain of the drowning sensations

Dying of old age ought to be painless, I guess.

If you can't wait, you should develop a heart condition, then have wild sex with the hottest specimen of the human kind you can get.
That's going to take some time, but the path to get there will be enjoyable, at least.

Oh, before you kill yourself, and assuming this isn't just some variation of breaching experiment, would you mind satisfying my curiosity by answering two questions?

  • Why do you want to die?

    Is life not bearable? Does it seems pointless and you're bored of it? Maybe your curious to see what's beyond the veil. Everyone seems to be completely insane and you want no part of it? [...]

  • What do you expect to get out of death?

    Simple non existance? Eternity in heaven or hell? To be reborn and have a second chance at life? Existance in a self created reality of your own making? [...]

i remember reading this Dostoevsky book, where this dude wants to kill himself but was afraid about the pain (many years ago so hazy)
but anyways he was thinking about the guillotine from the french rev, now the question was are u still consciense after your head is cut off + does it hurt.
so kill yourself with the guillotine + make some money whilst youre at it.
theres a catch, i hear u say.
but heres how
answer this question that ppl have pondered for years, do your bit for the advancement of humanity
