Hi everyone. New member long time attempted. I had the idea to do helium death but it seems unreliable. Considering hypothermia. Taking a cold shower then going outside in the middle of the night. Problem is it will only be 44 degrees Fahrenheit. Should I wait for a colder night? I really want to die ASAP. I’ve read quite a lot about it but need feedback.

hi, this will only have a chance of working with well below sub-zero temperatures.
not reliable even then, if someone sees you etc

Fuck. I appreciate it.
I did an excerise once part of job club which former army personnel developed a test for survival it listed items salvaged after plane crash like , newspapers, knife, fire lighter, compass, map etc and asked for people to list which was important.

The question at hand was to stay put or try to make to nearest town.

I was the only one who asked for map and compass not letting on my real reasoning, the whether was cold and I was hoping to find a cave and die from the cold. Fully knowing I won't survive to nearest town not that I would be heading there, heading opposite way.

Nobody in the group wanted the map or compass besides me go figure.

Actually if you jump into a lake/sea that's less than 15°C you'll eventually die of hypothermia

Yes but it will be a very unpleasant death ! Helium is tempered with oxygen but not nitrogen maybe you can use this method instead

Unfortunately the closest body of water is a river and that seems sketchy.

Unfortunately I no longer have access to the helium

Yeah hypothermia is a crapshoot when it comes to the environment. I too, have entertained this method before, but it would be if in the rare event that I am unable to CTB with what I have that I resort to it. This is because it takes extremely cold temperatures (like well below freezing), no interruption or intervention from bystanders & samaritans, and also your physical health condition (whether you already have pre-existing conditions or completely healthy) and general health. In short, it's not really as reliable as it is not instant, you may end up fighting your SI (Survival Instinct), and there is risk of being "saved" or intervened against.

I'm glad you made this post, because I've thought about it too. I live somewhere that temperatures routinely get below -30 C over the winter, and it's quite easy to get to empty, peaceful outdoor places where the chances of someone finding me would be extremely low.

That said, to me, there are a lot of downsides with this as a CTB method.

One, even in extreme cold, it takes quite a long time to die of hypothermia on dry land -- we're talking potentially hours of gritting through a really unpleasant process. And because cold slows the metabolism so much, even people who initially appear quite dead can be revived with medical treatment after quite a long time of exposure, so your window to ensure you're not found has to be extremely long.

Two, if the attempt does fail (bystander intervention) but you've been exposed for a long time, there would be a risk of having such severe frostbite in your extremities or even your nose / face that you require amputations. So that kinda sucks in terms of potential negative impacts of a failed attempt -- waking up from a failed CTB without hands and feet wouldn't be pleasant.

Another risk would be that, unless you'd taken something to render yourself unconscious at the beginning, in the later stages of hypothermia people become quite disoriented and confused. They are not able to think rationally.

To me, this means two things: one, it might be a psychologically unpleasant experience, far moreso than some of the other methods. Two: this could mean that, despite wanting to CTB when you were in a rational state of mind, as the hypothermia progresses you might actually lose control of your actions and end up leaving your chosen area and running to a place where you might encounter a bystander who would intervene. The only way to avoid this would be to ensure that you were REALLY out in the middle of nowhere.

Thinking about it in my area, primarily the people who die of hypothermia (not to CTB) are people who are rendered unconscious outside due to intoxication of some kind. That's because otherwise they'd end up running around and showing signs of distress that would trigger intervention. So if you're seriously thinking about this, in my opinion it'd be worth thinking about combining it with something to render yourself unconscious at the beginning. But even then that seems like no guarantee and just overall not a great way to go.

A different thought: it would really, really suck, but if you do live in a very cold area and have access to extremely cold bodies of water, that would at least be a much faster process. Death in water temperatures around 0 C (freezing) generally happens within 15-20 minutes, and for some can happen more quickly due to cold water shock (which is different than hypothermia). If you didn't want to drown as you lose control of your limbs, you could wear a life vest at least to keep your head above water. Overall though, still seems an incredibly unpleasant method compared to other options.

44 is not nearly cold enough. Wait till mid winter and go out in the snow in the woods if that’s the desired plan. if you’re found before you die you’ll likely lose some of all fingers and toes.

It does NOT need to be below freezing at all.

This method is my chosen method. This should be easily achieved by way of booze and drugs. I hope to be unconscious by the time the cold hurts.

I'm also thinking of this as well. I am so fed up today I wish it was colder I'd be off.

I have read somewhere that hypothermia is extremely painful upto a point , after which your body goes numb .

Well, it seems like pretty unpleasant death. Booze dilates the blood vessels near skin so body will lose its warmth quicker. Alcohol also lowers the feeling of cold, raises pain resistance and makes you less anxious so I think it comes in useful.
