have been thinking about that too, if you lose consciousness you shouldn't be able to stay over the water and drown. plus you can't feel any pain which some have been writing about:)

I was thinking maybe combining my meds which make me extremely drowsy add alcohol (haven’t drank in 8 years so that would hit me hard) and take a nice bubble bath and just let my body sink below the surface.
Haven't drink whole my life and now started for the first time. Believe it or not, but even after couple bottles of 96% vodka I feel like I drank just a beer. But the idea is not bad at all, the most important to be unconsciousness to kill all feelings.

I've been thinking of this too. What meds are you thinking?
Topamax and Valium. I have 2 full bottles of each
I have access to a lot of benzos (if I find the lockbox key)
Don’t you hate when you lose a lock box key. Mine 25 is locked away. Mine 9 isn’t

I’m thinking it would be pleasant. Play some music. And just drift off

Wow that’s crazy that drinking that much vodka only makes you feel like you had a beer. I use to be able to drink anyone under the table.

Benzos and alcohol induce almost a "temporary coma". I'm using that as example, there's no clinical coma, but extremely unconscious. No instincts. With high amounts someone could punch you outright and you'd continue to sleep ;)

My only worry was I won't drown , but wake up 24h later freezing cold .. (I'm a bit tall)

I was just toying with this idea. I rather not use my 9. My tub is slippery so I’m thinking if I’m out of it enough and pass out I’ll go under. I hope. Only one way to test.
I hate to be a negative Nellie, but the instinct to survive drowning is very strong. Unless you're talking Whitney Houston level drugs, it's going to be tough.
I’m thinking everything in the house. I might be able to grab ketamine which knocks me out.and so not a negative Nellie. I appreciate the info.

I feel like your body would shoot awake with adrenaline if you try to drown yourself like that. No matter how drowsy you are if your lungs start to fill with water you're body is going to enter panic mode I'm pretty sure so that might not be the best idea.

Do you think enough of both substances could kill you without anything else to interact with them? What if you added more sedatives?

No

Long time ago when psychiatrist asked how I'd ctb, I replied vodka & benzo. She actually laughed in my face :)
I asked why and she said "It just doesn't. You can try if you want". Still puzzled by that reaction...
EDIT: She was right.
