    [Help] My Suicide Video - should I watch it?

    Just after some advice.. Those who remember I posted about having jumped off a bridge onto the motorway. It was 5 months ago and I’m still in hospital. My question is, I had one of the police officers (he visits regularly) come and see me today and he told me the whole thing from me jumping...

    [Help] Has anyone here survived jumping off a bridge/building and is willing to share? (solid land only preferably)

    Has anyone here survived jumping off a building or bridge onto solid land? Would really like someone to talk to about it as this has recently happened to me. People try their best to understand and mostly do to some extent but I feel people who have actually been through it will truly...

    I think I've found the right bridge...

    I'm 6 hours away from the closest bridge that I think will be close to 100% fatality rate... It's the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia. It's over water and it's 876 feet high (267 meters). From the looks of it, there are no suicide nets or other precautions. I think the travel there will...

    [Venting] Something’s gotta be done

    Shit has hit the fan. I think I’m going to jump tomorrow. Too much of a puss to do a partial hanging. The physical sensation was unbearable for me. But my life is over, and I’m not ready for it. I’m very nervous, but it’s gotta be done.

    Anyone who's planning on jumping or using a gun, how do you plan to beat the survival instinct?

    I am ready to go, and not afraid of death. However for the gun method, the thought of instantly going from full consciousness to death really screws with me. Maybe it's my crippling anxiety. Jumping is my current planned method, and it's equally scary to think that my survival instinct will...

    Is 52 (15meters) feet high eneogh?

    A bridge in my area is about 52 feet high. I feel like it would be perfect because there aren't many people at night. I know it is selfish to let my body there then, but I kinda don't care right now. And it's kinda the only beatiful place I know. I feel like I could die in peace there and I...

    [Method] Is there a better bridge than rio grande gorge in nm?

    Photos:;aggregationId=&albumid=101&filter=7 It has a low rail, no police duty, a 565 foot drop (7th highest in the U.S.) and no suicide barrier. I don't see any...

    [Discussion] Is a 155-ft high bridge a safe bet? There is a bridge that nobody has survived.

    I am trying to find the least painful way. I am an ex-alcoholic and will plan to drink until drunk, then jump. I am too lazy and depressed to arrange a will or to write a note. The only thing I will miss is my cat. But my roommate loves her and will take care of her.
