Not officially, unless the latest print edition is bought at a shop, including online, when it gets released, every year ?

For the PPeH, find ways to bypass, but this site has recent copies so why bother.

Yes, I've done it. I can't remember if I had to lie about my age or something..

Is it possible?
Not for the online version, at least they claim that they only sell to people over 50 or suffering from serious illness, and that they verify ID to determine age. But whether or not they stick to this in practice is unknown, some other responses here suggest not.

It's always freely available on the forum. I guess if you are under 50 and wanted to 'do the right thing', you could use the pirated copy here but donate an equivalent amount to Exit International, which they accept from anyone.

In order to buy the book, you just have to upload the ID of someone who is at least 50 years old, no further verification is needed. A selfie with passport in hand is required to get access to the forum. They make exceptions for people seriously ill.

Why were you not allowed access to the forums?
I am 47 years old , this was the response to my question of not getting access to the forum


Membership of the forum is open only to current members of Exit International and PPeH subscribers who are of sound mind, and older than fifty years of age.

We apologise for being intrusive but, for applicants under the age of fifty, we request the submission of medical documentation, such as lab test results, prescriptions, or statement or letter sent to you by your doctor, clinic, or hospital.

Those who meet these requirements must send us an e-mail with a photo of yourself in which you are holding up your government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport.


So it is possible to get access to them if under 50, to be honest in my year membership with EI i found them nothing but professional and honest and you had many emails with updates etc and workshops , for the price i paid i thought it was money well spent and i do feel EI do have the wellbeing of others wishing to end their live at a time of choosing as a priority and for the most part trust them with the rebreather etc ..

Thanks for sharing their explanation, that sucks that they would not give you access.

I was considering applying for access myself but I am 46, and I was curious what their criteria was for making exceptions to the age rule. I was hoping they'd just take someone's word that they were 'terminally ill' and let it slide if someone was close enough to 50, but that doesn't seem to be case. Fuck.

Try contact them first, maybe you have a chance....
But They answer when they have power, it can take two days at best

The reason I ask is I can't seem to find the pages on internet safety, Bitcoin etc. In any of the free PPH versions available online so if anyone has those pages I'd be extremely greatful if you could share them with me :)

I got it without an ID over 50. I don’t remember doing anything shady to get it.

I send e-mail to exit international a week ago, not response. I've under 50 and very disabled. I have the impression that life is a well-kept prison from which we must find a way to escape without hurting ourselves and that there are privileged people (especially the elderly) to whom we open the big door. It is frightening to see yourself diminish and suffer more and more, with no future and no way out. The younger you are, the longer you have to suffer. I am sad and scared. It seems to me that the age restriction was imposed because young people were helped by the book and the forum to end their lives and that this turned against Exit International, the pro-lifes, these prison guards , always win unfortunately. https://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content/2014/s4053703.htm

Interesting. I bought it two years ago, and I had to upload an ID. And as far as I know, everyone who bought the book recently had to do so. Maybe you bought it a long time ago ? Or you are an "exception", member of another organisation, terminally ill ? Just curious

I have a bad physical illness, I don’t know why I got it and don’t remember the process actually. But when I tried to join Exit Inteenarional, I paid and told them my disease etc and I never got a single email back - need to chase that money down.

I wouldn't bother paying for it. I'd just download it. I wouldn't feel bad about it because going against their rules in the first place feels like betraying the cause, if done through the official website, and I feel it's easier to explain for them if people are just acquiring it through questionable means.

I remember the good old days of being able to buy it from Amazon. I got a copy in 2014 from Amazon.com, but if I was consulting it now I'd definitely try the updated 2020 version.
