I'm determined to die. I'm generally pretty healthy, so this is going to take work. I don't have the nads to try any other method. I made a mistake and lost my family. I can even face prison. There is no way I'm getting locked in a cage. I want to make the end as painless as possible. I decided to go one week without eating. The first 3 days were painful. Then my stomach stopped growling. You get very dehydrated. I can't deal with the pain of dehydration to die, so I did drink water. After that, there was slight pain, but the will to eat was gone. There was a bit of pain in my chest. One week of fasting put a strain on my heart. I know it can take forever to die this way. So I'm doing it gradually. I'll go maybe 10 days now fasting to weaken my heart more and keep increasing the days fasting. In between I drink alcohol. Maybe my kidneys will go first. I know this isn't quick, but I do believe it will give the least painful end.

In the above article it states: 'Few people die directly from starvation because they usually die of an infectious disease first.'

This is due to the havoc that starvation brings to your immune system.

There is no telling which infectious disease you will get, or even if the first one you get will even be lethal.

I think that this is therefore a very unreliable way to go, because you dont know what is going to happen to your body. So you have no way of knowing how painful it will be, and whether you can handle it.

I would stick to methods that are more predictable, so that you can be fully prepared for what will happen.

Its hard to know how it could end up. People can go without food for weeks. Liquid takes a bit less, but still hard. It works better for older people and those who are already sick and frail.

But it can work. Takes time. Very uncomfortable too. Takes determination. True your body will most likely start failing but i wonder how long will it really take. What if someone notices and tries to help you? Wouldnt hospitals respond to such emergencies and force feed you, even through tubes?

I thought about that. I'm now alone, so when it becomes noticeable, I'll just stay home. Perhaps get some OTC sleep aids

I don't see anyone documenting how to go using this method with success. You're right about that. I can say after the third day there was little pain or hunger. It will also take a long time, and I may get an illness. But if I die from the illness or breakdown of organs? Why would that matter?
I did find SN at a popular online retailer. I think maybe once it's noticeable use that route. My body would be already weakened.

This is something I would not do, it sounds like you'd go through tremendous suffering. Sn is the way.

Or your digestive functions will have slowed down to a point where absorption of SN would take much longer than it should and it will be a long, drawn out affair.

Your metabolism will have slowed. Who knows? By the time you take SN,you may even have gastroparesis (delayed stomach content emptying).
Not eating for a prolonged period can also trigger psychosis. Then,everything will be out of your hands.

There's a documentary about a man who did just that. He kept a diary of his CTB through starvation. He survived for 62 days and basically mummified himself.

It's called "The Sound of Insects." I'd highly recommend checking it out.

One of the biggest proponets of death by starvation ended up doing it herself and she said it was way worse than she anticipated it would be. SN is cheap, reletively painless, and legal. SN would be my first pick.

"Just as I shall select my ship when I am about to go on a voyage, or my house when I propose to take a residence, so I shall choose my death when I am about to depart from life...There is no occasion when the soul should be humored more than at the moment of death. Let the soul depart as it feels itself impelled to go; whether it seeks the sword, or the halter, or some draught that attacks the veins, let it proceed and burst the bonds of its slavery. Every man ought to make his life acceptable to others besides himself, but his death to himself alone. The best form of death is the one we like. Men are foolish who reflect thus: 'One person will say that my conduct was not brave enough; another, that I was too headstrong; a third, that a particular kind of death would have betokened more spirit.' What you should really reflect is: 'I have under consideration a purpose with which the talk of men has no concern!'"

- Seneca


If you seek guidance for the method, I suggest the book Five Final Acts.

I can say go to a site that sells everything. It's a big name.

I got SN on the way. Ordered it today. I'm weakening my body hoping it makes the process faster

I tried this. The thrill of thinking I had "won" and was finally getting out of this god-forsaken hell world was enough to push me through the dry, cracked lips and occasional body aches. Eventually I just laid in bed because I didn't have the energy to do anything else. Then I passed out and started hallucinating. I met beings from other worlds, including one who showed me around the after (pre?) life. It was just better being there. I didn't have the weight of a tired body holding me down anymore. And without the weight, and without the suffering, from that vantage point, it's easy to look back on this place and think you want to help the poor souls who are still stuck here suffering.

At some point I snapped and started eating and drinking again and woke up in my own waste. I don't know if any of the beings I saw while hallucinating were real, but if they are, they are to be avoided when you depart.

I will keep it running just a little. Maybe eat something small every once in a while
