I have also thought about this. For some it seems really simple and effective. But I do not think so.There's a video of a partial suspension suicide on liveleak (if you go there, be sure to avoid the comments section or you'll have a new reason to kill yourself). Although I would never choose hanging, that video really intrigued me because it seemed painless and clean.
A few weeks ago a doctor committed suicide in prison, and the news reports just said he used an effective method of hanging that a doctor would know. Again I'm guessing partial suspension, especially since you can't really drop yourself far in a prison cell.
But I'll never understand it, some people succeed by hanging no problem while there are others who are just as motivated and follow all the steps, but it just doesn't work. Well I guess that can be said about every method short of jumping in a volcano :/
A little bit, but it's hard to see because it's on a webcam. Here's a direct link the video:I have also thought about this. For some it seems really simple and effective. But I do not think so.
In the video you see the preparation of the rope?
Hanging is one if my top choices. I think I'll do it in a motel room but I'm concerned about the staff finding my body. There is no need to traumatize innocent cleaning staff. What do you think about a note on the outside of my door with instructions for them not to come in and instead to call 911? Obviously the concern here is that someone finds me or the note before I'm fully dead but I just don't want to cause anyone emotional pain/scarring from seeing a dead body. I've also thought about just getting a gun and shooting myself (only in America can someone like me but a gun lmao. I'm deeply fucked up but no criminal history so I'm good) but I fear this would be even more traumatic for whoever finds me. I don't want to hurt anyone. Anyone else I be should say[/QU
In a motel room, I would hope 911 would be called when the gunshot is heard. With the right aim, death should be instant, but flukes happen. I also don't want to traumatize the poor housekeeper. At least the police will be expecting it from the 911 call.
