the basic problem of commiting suicide is you won't be around to see the effect on the people you leave behind.

My first wife, a fine oboist, and my 91 year old mother both threatened suicide.

The effect on me was to break my first marriage because in order to preserve my own sanity I walked out.
My first wife was clinically depressed but refused treatment for three years. Her depression appeared as unconsolable tears at on waking at 4:00 am or as anger.

There are two basic causes of depression a chemical imbalance in your brain or unhappy circumstances in your life.

So the solution to suicidal thoughts is first to talk about them to someone who is a stranger, and who will make no demands on you, but just listen and ask you neutral questions to help you get sorted in the way you want to.

This is called non-directive counselling

This is a short term solution until you are ready to seek professional help or your black mood lifts.

Obviously ending your life is a human right in a world of free choice.

Too bad it is a waste of all the food you ate or the education you got, and it will break the hearts of those who love you.

Maybe the whole world will laugh at you . . . "This Web site is no longer available.
This is due to the passage of the Criminal Code Amendment (Suicide Related Material Offences) Act 2005 in the Australian Parliament. The Act, which comes into force on 6 January 2006, makes it a criminal offence to provide certain information or discussion in relation to suicide.
Although there are some exemptions provided under the Act, the wording of the Act is sufficiently vague, in the advice that I have obtained, to raise significant concerns for anyone providing information about suicide online. The Act also criminalises obtaining certain information about suicide over the Internet - potentially making users of the site criminals. Due to the risk of criminal charges and substantial penalties (up to AUD$110,000 for each offence) both for myself and people in Australia accessing the site, I am unable to continue operating this Web site."

One down lots more to go

In FRANCE, Jacques LeFevrier left nothing to chance when he decided to commit suicide. He stood at the top of a tall cliff and tied a noose around his neck. He tied the other end of the rope to a large rock. He drank some poison and set fire to his clothes. He even tried to shoot himself at the last moment. He jumped and fired the pistol. The bullet missed him completely and cut through the rope above him. Free of the threat of hanging, he plunged into the sea. The sudden dunking extinguished the flames and made him vomit the poison. He was dragged out of the water by a kind fisherman and was taken to a hospital, where he died of hypothermia. "
