I dont think anyone on here will encourage you. Thats not what this site is about despite what the media says.
But I am sorry you feel this way and that life has come to this for you.

You may fail, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Failure is necessary for growth, even in this circumstance. You'd be failing at something that most people would never have the courage to do. That makes you powerful.

Plan; cover your bases; cover your affairs; do whatever needs to be done, but there's always tomorrow if all else fails.

Don't be afraid of making a mistake. Shit can, and will, happen.

I am exactly in your situation. Very afraid of failing and having some kind of damage. I don't want to rehearse, just do it once and for all...

If you are afraid of failing you could always try a method that does not cause damage if saved.

Same here. Fear of failing, fear of what comes after if you don't fail. Maybe have more than one CTB option. For me I want to hang if I can get it right, my backup is drowning, I know the second will be less likely to fail provided nobody is around to save me but the process is a bit more painful than hanging done right. If only had a gun

Is there a reason you need to rush things? If you don't feel ready today, that's most likely ok. You're prepared, so you have the option available any time you do feel ready. That's a good position to be in.

Both choices are brave ones. I hope that whatever you decide leads to the best possible outcome for you. (((Hugs)))

I take issue with this. I agree that failure can be helpful for growth in life, but a failed hanging is in a much different category. Failed hanging does not lead to growth—it leads to serious disability in the worst cases. The user should be aware of the consequences of failure in this venture. Don’t seriously try hanging unless you’ve done your research, have the proper equipment, and know you won’t be found.

I absolutely agree. Planning and research above all else. You're correct in pointing the health hazards as a result of a failed hanging.

I overlooked this as a courage versus execution dilemma and for that I need to properly apologize and reiterate the necessity of preperation and safety (especially in the realms of hanging). Thank you Partial-Elf.

Is there any? I can think of none.
Please do some research there are a number of means and methods that fit that bill. As a starter try the resource section on this site.
