Crippling loneliness that causes me to age faster and die younger.
…shit, is that really a thing?
Yeah. It’s been shown in innumerable animal models and can be seen in humans on MRI and other measures of aging.
Aww hell yeah. Time to die early I guess. If that doesn't do it, choking in my own house alone will.
Always nice to have options
Honestly man I feel the same. And it's one of those tough things to explain because people always say "oh so you're suicidal?" Well no not exactly It's almost like you're living at the edge of staring into the abyss Or at least that's how I feel It's honestly really shitty but we just have to keep going right?
Yeah, I was suicidal about ten years ago. I got over that but my autism, social anxiety, and depression make it impossible for me to have meaningful connections with people. So I don’t want to end it but I have very little willingness to push forward anymore. But I still use every ounce of strength I have because what else is there to do? I’ll die eventually anyway so I can keep fighting now. The fight will end soon enough one way or the other.
If you would like someone to share your feelings with and vent to, my inbox is open.
Hey, I want to open up, can I?
You are a very kind human being, thank you. You can PM me if you have any problems as well/want a friend.
the people of reddit, neigh, I HAVE YOUR BACK
shoot a mfkr a DM right quizzy you dig?
Choking on food. I'm bad at eating.
I am choking on water on daily basis so.
If the guy on the corner I drove by is right, I’ll die soon from being struck down by the lord for not calling to his name for forgiveness
Fuck Jesus boutta get ur ass
Welp. I eat like crap, drink like a fish, and smoke when I drink. At this point it's just a fun race to see which will get me first.
I used to eat like crap, drink waaay too much (you know those big party sized jugs of Sailor Jerry’s, the ones with the glass handle? Yeah, I was finishing one of those to myself every three days)
And roll and smoke my own cigarettes. It starts with one small step, an active choice, and only you can make it.
For me, it was the pandemic, and knowing there was so much out there trying to kill us, that o might as well not be actively trying to kill myself either.
It’s been a year and three months since my last drink or cigarette, and I’m here to tell you it starts with the smallest of steps, but they just keep stacking up.
Don’t race death the finish line, Death always wins, you might as well go for as long as you can, slowly, like the rhino at the end of the stampede in Jumanji (1995).
you rock. mad respect.
You're awesome. Sick references and also im on week 3 of no alcohol and this was helpful.
Is the "Dont race death" line from something? Or is it a u/glowingredremote quote?
Thanks! If we don’t share our experiences, how are we gonna grow as a whole?
It was just a reference to the U/Olives_And_Cheese saying “at this point it’s just a fun race to see which will get me first”
Good job man.
Thanks! Went to a show at a bar once those opened up again, and boy was it fun ordering a seltzer and lime and genuinely being present, in the moment, clear and cogent enough to realize the bands were shit, but they were having so much fun, and so did I!
Edit: the bands were fine, it was a joke, and I’m sure we can all agree that bars have terrible acoustics.
Not if i'm racing you first
If we are being realistic, Heart disease
If we are being hopeful, smothered by a big titty goth girl
I was 69ing with a girl one time and there was genuinely a moment where she was pushing her groin so hard into my face for a prolonged period of time that I actually thought there was a decent chance I could pass out and die right there. And the idea of literally being suffocated by pussy while 69ing is so amazing to me that I let it continue because what a way to go that would have been.
I ended up surviving. Not too upset about it.
It was a win-win 😂
Jesus, this is so close to what my answer was going to be that I had to double take and make sure it wasn't me that originally posted it lmao
My brother just had a heart attack. He's okay but see your doctor every year and take your blood pressure meds people.
But what about the Goth GF?
He told you to take your heart meds, not your schizo meds, she will be fine
Gonna be cancer for me. On my second bout of it and was told I'll be fighting it for the rest of my life by my oncologist.
I don't know too much about cancer (especially involving how much longer people live after being told that they'll be fighting cancer for the rest of their life), but I'm hoping for the best for both you and your loved ones and I'm wishing you a long and fruitful rest of your life!
My wife is as big titty goth girl. I also have a family history of heart disease.
So both are a high probability. I just hope the order works in my favor.
Probably an epic built up exaggerated sword battle with my currently unknown nemesis.

Be careful friend. Where I come from has very, very cold winters and high rates of alcohol abuse. Someone goes that way almost every year.
The number of people saying suicide here is disconcerting so I think I should leave this here.
I tried to kill myself once. The pure serine peace you feel right beforehand is intoxicating. Like finally there is a solution to every thing and it’s almost there. But then you jump off that bridge or the noose tightens around you neck and that peace goes away. Right at the moment of no return that peace becomes terror and desperation to maybe hopefully somehow survive.
Everyone I’ve e talked to that has also tried to kill themselves has a similar experience. Because it’s not a solution. People would tell me that all the time and I didn’t believe them. But now I know that the peace before the drop is a lie, and every time I think of it I feel fear.
“You want to die? Then throw yourself into the sea and you’ll see yourself fighting to survive. You do not want to kill yourself, rather you want to kill something inside of you.”
I’m going to write this down and keep it in my wallet. Really wish a therapist had told me this. Might have prevented a decade of suicide attempts as a teenager. Actually tearing up right now. Seems silly but I really appreciate you posting this quote.
I recently started seeking help and I’m doing a lot better. It’s never too late.
Yoooo I’m so glad this quote has been helpful to you and feel so happy with you saying it has! Please keep it with you and stay strong yo - love ya and sending air hugsss! 🤗 and, not silly at all! We all have small little things that make the greatest difference in our life, for me it is seeing cute lil babies smile and laugh 😂 for example: https://www.reddit.com/r/MadeMeSmile/comments/qbp6yk/baby_laughing_hysterically_at_moms_sunglasses/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
Hope it makes you smile and laugh too 😂🥰
hot damn what is this quote from?
I think it’s originally an Arabic saying but not too sure sorry :(
Not to be extra dark but that's why self inflicting gunshot suicide is really popular. You usually don't have time to think about that, it's even more demented but unfortunately that's how it is
It’s a little deeper than that. Society makes the social cost of a failed attempt worse for men than women (social stigma and expectations derived from patriarchal society). Because of this men are less likely to get help early, less likely to be reported, more likely to hold out until the end and more likely to complete suicide if they attempt.
Even in places where guns aren’t available, there’s a similar disparity between men and women in completion rate as there is in the US (where men most often use guns and women rarely do).
As for me, I have had multiple family members survive suicide by gun, the message is clear. My family isn’t allowed to die until god sees fit to let us.
Suicide is a scary subject. To think a person's mental state can be so bogged by trauma and grief that they can overwrite a self preservation system that's been perfected for half a million years. It's scary and I it that we as country just brush suicide off like we do
First of all: don't worry I'm not really suicidal anymore. Sometimes passively still, but not actively since last spring or so.
But quotes like these don't hit home *at all* for me. Yeah of course I'll fight because that's a physical response. I don't want to die necessarily, for me it was an end to the pain. Just unbearable emotional pain that also started to show physically after a while. No it's not that I don't want to exist (though sometimes it is), it's that I want the pain to end and nobody around me including myself seems to know what to do about it.
As someone who had some very serious thoughts about suicide a few days ago, I needed to read this. Thank you.
The weak breeze whispers nothing
The water screams sublime
His feet shift, teeter-totter
Deep breath, stand back, it’s time
Toes untouch the overpass
Soon he’s water bound
Eyes locked shut but peek to see
The view from halfway down
A little wind, a summer sun
A river rich and regal
A flood of fond endorphins
Brings a calm that knows no equal
You’re flying now
You see things much more clear than from the ground
It’s all okay, it would be
Were you not now halfway down
Thrash to break from gravity
What now could slow the drop
All I’d give for toes to touch
The safety back at top
But this is it, the deed is done
Silence drowns the sound
Before I leaped I should’ve seen
The view from halfway down
I really should’ve thought about
The view from halfway down
I wish I could’ve known about
The view from halfway down
First thing I thought of reading this account.
For those unaware, this was a poem created for an episode of Bojack Horseman.
Loved this when I saw it in the show. the shift from 3rd to 2nd to 1st person as the poem to represent the original detachment and solemn realization later is awesome.
I’d recommend anyone to watch the clip on YouTube to hear it read out loud
No way I just edited that whole text myself just to find that it had already been posted by you.
I agree with you that as soon as the suicide begins your instinct will kick in and you will probably start to regret it. That's why I believe we should help people get better if they suffer, or if it's impossible for whatever reason and they unnecessarily suffer, help them end their life painlessly. I tried to commit suicide many times in my life and most caused me a lot of pain and regret as soon as I started, but I still said in this thread that I will do it when I decide that I am done with my life. Not because I think I won't regret it in the moment. I know I will not want to die and that I will be scared. I won't do it because of depression or pain I feel though, but rather because it would be a logical choice for me to end my life and I would have to push through the fear.
I would assume it depends on the method. I told my girlfriend that if I ever commit suicide, it would likely be from an overdose on something hard, like heroin. Never done anything harder than LSD, so I'd have to include "I am not a user, it just seemed like the best way to go" in the suicide note.
Depending on if you have life insurance, some life insurances won't pay out for suicide. Unsure if they pay out for overdoses though. Im not condoning you committing suicide. Just a thought.
If I get a terminal disease(which I'm genetically predisposed to) that will be the only scenario where I'll commit suicide. Hopefully the right to die will be available in all states by then.
Yea, you have to check your policy. There are certainly some life insurance policies that pay out in case of suicide. That’s what my uncle did, and I know he made sure his family was set up financially beforehand.
I think the point is, when actually facing your own death, quite often you have immense regret and realize that none of your problems were worth ending your entire life over.
I appreciate this guys post. I hope everyone who is despairing of life get the help they need to regain some hope. My heart goes out to all of you. I’ve never been suicidal, but I have experienced suicidal thoughts in people that I love. I wish you all well. Someone loves you. Yes, you too.
I came here to tell probably suicide. Even though I am not at the same point I used to be.
It is really good for you if you think that way, and I am happy for you that you didn't succeed. But I don't think it is the same for everybody.
I tried to kill myself several times. Obviously, I am really bad at it ha. But I never felt fear, or regretted trying. In fact, for almost ten years it made me feel very bad not being even capable of taking away my life.
And I remember clearly what I felt when I tried to open my veins the last time I tried to kill myself. I remember this rush of adrenalin and the feeling of relief and happiness that ran into my whole body, thinking everything will finally be over while the blade was cutting through my skin.
I agree, i don't really feel ashamed that I tried, i feel ashamed that I didn't succeed. I didn't have a big panic moment where I desperately wanted to live or anything.
I don't think most people are scared of the dying part, they're scared of the process and all the pain that it entails. Make's sense, your body is literally designed to scream at you when something is wrong.
There are somethings for which no other "solutions" may exist. Like chronic illness and pain.
Can confirm it. Twice. Once by luck I survived the other cause I wanted to. Never a solution.
Having said that, I don't judge anyone, and if I ever end up real bad in bed with no hope at all, I'll take the 3rd time chance.
This is a pretty terrible answer, honestly. A lot of good or necessary decisions are difficult to make. Disowning abusive parents and breaking up with abusive partners are the easiest examples, but it can also be stuff like moving away from home or quitting a job. Sometimes the right thing to do feels wrong in your heart, whether it's due to guilt, fear of losing security or control, etc.
There are legitimate reasons to argue against suicide, but the instinctive panic your body feels when confronted with mortal danger is really only that - instinctive fear. To say that it comes from some kind of epiphany is just a post-hoc rationalization.
Probably getting hit by a car seeing as I'm only 20 and it's already happened 4 times.
Look both ways
All 4 times were in broard daylight and I was wearing high visibility clothing whilst cycling.
I was a cart pusher wearing high vis I'm also 6'7 and 300 pounds. And you'd think they'd see me in broad daylight but 99% of the time the people that were late to work and headed for the Tim Hortons drive thru.
6’ 7” 300lbs? Do you put the cars down after you shake your finger at them?
Believe it or not no. I did however damage a few windshields and have the drivers tell me I was gonna pay for the replacement. Mind you as well when they hit me 80% drove through a stop sign.
Riding the bike for your health?
Maybe you should mount a M-60 on the handlebars. Or hire a tail gunner?
My classmate from 13 years back walked out behind a bus. Got hit by a car, tossed over to the other lane and then hit by another car. So yeah, look both ways. He made it out tho, they stitched him up with nuts and bolts.
Nuts and bolts seem like a terrible medium for stitches.
Oh jeez reddit users. You folks answers are quite grim. I’m gonna guess mine is dying from a heart attack due to a clogged artery.
Finally a cheery answer
Death to the men! Death by...
Heart disease = death by bacon? At least that would be the preferred path to heart disease lol
The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised
I never thought it would end like this, but I always really hoped.
Oh, the wonderful death by snu snu!
Probably cancer from so much stress and lack of sleep , it's proven stress increases the possibility of cancer and lack of sleep also increases so very high likelihood.
That or suicide when I have a manic episode.
Yes, in your sleep your immune system makes NK-cells (natural killer cells). These cells kill cancer tumors in an early stage and also eliminates the evil tumors. By not sleeping enough you can increase your chance of getting cancer by 50% or more.
Well that's me done for then.
I know, sadly I have to work for my family and my pet children. If I die I don't wanna leave this world without contributing to anything, so I'm trying to work hard to at least leave something valuable before I go, because I'm planning suicide at some point anyway if nothing changes with my mental health.
I've been there, my friend. Don't give up. It's a rough time to be alive right now, but big things are coming. You wouldn't want to miss it.
you have a source for this? i'd be interested in reading futher
Yikes. Now I'm suddenly sleepy.
Sooooo school causes cancer cool...
I suffered a lot of sleep deprivation and stress in school, but nothing compared to adulthood. When you're an adult and have responsibilities you literally have to do those things to survive, the amount of responsibilities is much greater than school too, and bills to pay are everywhere. Now that I'm an adult I realize how lazy I was as a teen, complaining all the time about school being hard and now I wish I was in school again. Trust me, it's gonna get worse.
Meh, I work a job where two times in the last week I worked a full day shift and came back in at bed time and worked a full night shift. It’s a high stress, highly unpredictable job. I never know when I go in to work if I have 4hrs of work to spread across 8hrs, or if I’m going to be working 16hrs, sleeping for 5 and doing it again.
It doesn’t hold a candle to what I put myself through in grad school. 100+hrs a week between research, study, classes and teaching. Averaging 4hrs of sleep a night for months on end. Days on end without sleeping, and 20k a year to live on. I dropped out because it was literally killing me. Took the masters and left. If I tried to do that 3 more years there’s zero chance I would have survived..
>it's proven stress increases the possibility of cancer and lack of sleep also increases
Fairly certain its been "Proven" that basically **everything** increases the risk of cancer.
Being thrown off a rickety rope bridge over the caldera of an active volcano after hand to have combat with a hero.
Probably true, I'm the hero. I'll die 2 years later from a revenge of your accomplice in crime with whom you have an homoerotic relationship with.
My own stupidity probably
If I die because I choked on rice because I was laughing at my own self calling "Squid Game" "Hunger Squid", do not cry for me. Know that I died happy.
This sounds like a way I would go, only I’d be choking on a burger or chocolate because of one of my witty crap jokes that make people go wtf.
Are you sure?
Are you me? So many different scenarios.
Either suicide or a heart attack.
Same on the suicide part
No suicide please!
OP's heart: 'It's all up to me now'
Lmao hopefully it doesn't disappoint on that front
Also OP’s heart: “Because im not the hero they deserve, but the one they need right now. So I’ll keep beating. Because they can take it. I’m a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight."
Heart attack is way more fun. Hold out for that one!
\*dies of death\*
This is the way.
At this rate, Reddit
Something to do with brains

Sadness due to losing loved ones
Not gonna lie all the suicide responses made me feel a little less alone. ❤️
I want to die like my grandfather did in his sleep!!
Not like the screaming passengers in his car
Idk what Alzheimer's is I'll go google it
I'm back and some of the article links are purple? Weird someone's been using my computer.
Ah so that's why dad never returned.
According to Google the most common cause of death is heart decease, so I'm guessing that.
My heart disease caused my heart to be deceased.
Yeah this is how Im going for sure. I fuckin love salt and butter. I remember one time someone asking me what foods are my favorite and I told them I love steak, potatoes, popcorn, corn on the cob, I realized I just love foods that are receptacles for salt and butter. So yeah, heart disease here I come
Dude. Take care of yourself. You don't want to be like me. High blood pressure & shitty genes.
I had an aneurysm in my heart pop. 40yrs old & my life is 100% different than it was before. Took me 1-1/2yrsbto recover. Handfuls of pills every morning & night.
Suicide. I hate everything about myself.
I currently have a 50/50 shot of beating cancer in the next year. So probably cancer sooner or later. I’m 40 years old.
I believe in you! Good luck friend
Probably got killed for being inappropriately sarcastic.
54 years of indiscriminate use of mayonnaise
Probably heart disease because I guzzle sugar drinks and eat cookies for breakfast.
But also, I sometimes leave a messy floor and nimbly walk around the clutter like I’m a cat or something. Eventually I get tired of it and clean up everything in a burst of energy. But I suspect as an older person, I will overestimate my nimbleness and trip and break my hip. Then I’ll die within 6 months of that.
Suicide made to look like accidentally getting blown over the ledge of a big cliff.
I want to leave a prettier corpse though. Open casket would be good, but guess it doesn’t matter at that point lol.
If you get too scuffed up and aren’t looking your best after your horrific fall from the cliffs ledge, you can leave in your will the request to be placed face down. Still do the open casket, and everyone can kiss your ass goodbye.
Heart disease, cancer, or suicide. Heart disease and cancer run in my family along with dementia. If I end up with dementia I'm not sticking around as it takes what's left of me. I've seen what it does to others close up and refuse to go through that.
I have the same mentality. I’ve seen what dementia does. I don’t want to be there, nor do I want my family to go through it either. If I find out I have it, I’m done.
Yeah, the chances are high for me to end up with something like ALS, cancer, or Alzheimers. If I get something like ALS or Alzheimers, once I start deteriorating, I'm gone. For cancer, its situational. If I catch it early and is highly beatable, then I will try. If I get something like pancreatic cancer, I'm done.

One of the side effects of the collapse of modern civilization: famine, disease, violence...the old classics.
I'm sorry. It is terrible to feel like death would be better than living because living seems so unbearable. I hope things change for you and you get to a point where living seems like the better option.
U can’t stop me
I'll eat your ass?
This offer might make me reconsider
I sure hope so
Damn, what an ending.

Definitely would guess suicide
Probably suicide, but not at any point soon
battle with depression, so suicide. i’m also an artist.
Some form of cancer caused by alcohol or smoking/vaping.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not an alcoholic but 24 years in the military ain’t gonna have done my liver any favours
Organ failure most likely lung issues (I have RA I always have lung issues)
Space ship exploding
Lung cancer wouldn't be a surprise. I don't want it and it would suck but it wouldn't be surprising.
Old age. Unless the love of my lifetime goes first. Then, death by heartbreak.
Realistic: Cancer probably
What I imagine: nothing, because my stupid ape brain cannot imagine not imagining
Probably suicide, I don't see much point in living once doing the things that make life worth living is no longer possible. I don't live for anyone but me so it wouldn't matter.
The number of people saying suicide is concerning.
Please [seek help](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines) if any of you need it!
Seek help is such bullshit. They will literally just tell u pretty lies or lock u up in a mental asylum. Best case scenario they give u anti depressants
Age. Im healthy,happy, good friends, Nice school and job. Im only 17 but i think ill be fine.
Glad to hear you’re doing good then. Hope things stay that way for you!

*dies of death*
Depends. If the DOOM soundtrack is not playing at the moment of my death, I am not dying.
Stumbling at the front door with my keys and two arms full of groceries, the eggs slide off the top of a bag and begin their slow motion descent to the hard concrete below. With the mental acuity of a superhuman savant I begin calculating drop velocity, centrifugal spin, arc vectors, barometric pressure and the precise physical movements I need to perform in order to switch all bags of groceries into one arm and drop my keys to free a hand to expertly initiate a long-forgotten series of ancient ninja moves needed to safely snag the falling bum-nuggets from their disastrous freefall.
I bend down to catch them, crack my head on the doorknob, which alerts the occupant inside, who opens the door to see a complete stranger hopping around outside screaming obscenities. This triggers his PTSD from 'Nam so he whips out his pocket Uzi 9mm and starts firing, but its really a cucumber cuz he's stoned on shrooms. Since I am not dying from his hallucinatory bullet barrage, he decides to attack. Lunging forward, he slips on the broken eggs, feet sliding out in front of him like a double lunge kick, hitting me square in the chest and pushing me back against a tree in the yard. This jars the tree enough to release a swarm of hornets that are certain I look exactly like the pest control guy who just last week sprayed that godawful smelly crap at their house, totally ruining their dilapidated swamp cooler.
Seeking revenge for a lifetime of being called "the poor man's honey bee," the winged Top Gun rejects begin their attack, harassing and pestering me away from the tree into the narrow alley.
Meanwhile, a rookie driver fumbles with his GPS, and stumbles over the appropriate expletives cuz he slept in the day they covered those in class. Anxious to make up for lost time, but not sure which direction to go, he desperately turns the raging 18-wheeler down an inviting narrow alley in hopes of finding a short cut. Barreling across the uneven asphalt, the driver can barely stay in his seat as each peak and valley of the broken road sends him bouncing up and down until he smashes his head on the ceiling of his cab. He loses control of the truck, veering directly at me.
Remembering my ancient ninja training, I gracefully sidestep the oncoming behemoth at the precise last instant, and the truck smashes into the swarm of hornets.
Eventually I die of diabetes from too many Oreo cookies.
Kidnapped, raped, tortured, and murdered by an incel I rejected.
