    [Story] The story of my failed drowning attempt

    Now that a week has passed since the event, I decided to share the story of my first practical attempt at getting off this world. It was quite the trip... a little horrifying in some ways but more of an adventure in others. This is going to be quite a story so prepare for a long post. First a...

    [Help] Thoughts about this method?

    I'm stuck with the thought about SN method, then a shot of ghb and then either swim out in a lake or just lay in a large bathtub. It maybe sounds like a overkill, but do you think it will work if I don't throw up? Better to overkill than sorry. I don't think it is that complicated. I was...

    [Help] Swimming until exhaustion at a Great Lake/ocean

    I have a friend who says they have people who watch shores with “sonar” to prevent this and I can’t tell if they are just saying that to scaremonger me. They live on the coast so they would know, in theory. Can anyone confirm that happening to them or someone else?

    Fentanyl + Drowning in Pool?

    I have a pool, so I could handcuff a heavy weight to my leg and dive in. Only problem is, drowning sounds like it sucks. Therefore, I'd like to be knocked out cold beforehand. Would I be able to inject fentanyl right before diving in? How quickly would the drug put me unconscious in the heroine...

    Drowning with weights

    I sent my money to A and then stupidly emailed him saying I'm just depressed and can't go through with it. The only reason being I can't bear to devastate my loved ones. My peaceful method is gone. Oh well. I deserve for it to be painful considering all the agony I'm about to cause to my loved...

    [Method] Benzodiazepines/sleep medication + hanging/drowning?

    I was thinking of combining methods for something calmer and/or more effective. And this brought an idea to me. Would combining benzodiazepines/sleep medication with hanging/drowning help keep your body more relaxed? Could you lay down in a full bathtub and wait until passing out and drown...

    [Method] Drowning?

    I'm chronically ill and becoming increasingly restricted physically. I'm also watched like a hawk by my abusive parents. I have sodium nitrite but am somewhat hesitant to use it because our house is small and they could be easily alerted if I become sick. I am considering ending it this week on...

    Alcohol, xans and a river?

    I need your help. I don't have a lot of options, I don't have a gun , no talk buildings in my small town , no N, etc. So I was thinking of popping a few xans, getting drunk then jumping into the town lake. You think it'll work ?
