What's the real difference between N and SN excuse me for being ignorant, these methods have been rather new to me, but people keep saying how N is much preferred over SN eventhough I believe SN is also painless and I believe N costs more and is harder to obtain, may somebody enlighten me?

Provided you have access to both N and SN, then most people prefer N. If you don't have access to N, then SN is usually much easier to find which makes it preferable.
And why are costs a consideration? You'll be dead.

N is considered the most peaceful of all existing methods. It is used in euthanasia.
You lose your consciousness very fast, no pain, no discomfort. Feels like you just fall asleep.
Cons: price, availability, long recovery if failed (though unlikely), illegal to sell

SN is peaceful as well but you will experience some discomfort.
A greater chance to throw up.
Takes a bit more time to lose consciousness.
Very easy to obtain, affordable, legal, fast recovery if failed.
Good method if you are afraid to fail.

N is my primary, SN secondary.

If you have money, are not afraid of customs/police, you can obtain N (there are only 2 sources available)
If you want an easier way out, then it is SN.

Both are peaceful, but N is more.

Although this thread was because I am uninformed I also assume some people out there are also uninformed which is why price consideration was a factor.

Price consideration was for 2 reasons, 1. Botched attempt (although I believe it'll be difficult to do so with N), 2. Just can't afford it hence why SN would be a better alternative en exchange for some mild discomfort.

It's not mild discomfort. Mystic said he/she was in a lot of pain after her/his attempt. Like a hot coal on Your stomach or something like that.

I was originally set on obtaining N, but I didn't want to take the risk of being tracked down. Plus SN is a lot cheaper, and you have a much higher chance of making a full recovery if you change your mind about suicide during the process than if you ingested N. Only thing I'm super worried about is if during that 20 minute wait time between ingesting SN and losing consciousness I go into full panic mode. I guess I'm still not entirely sure if suicide is right for me.

Can you add more information on that please?
What do you mean by long recovery?
May take up to 3-4 weeks to recover. Not as a rule, but comparing to a few days in case of SN, it is a long recovery.

I uploaded case reports there, but there were nothing about disability:

I wonder if that's because she only dissolved it in 50ml of water

Buying N especially is a huge risk of being scammed. Who wants to throw a substantial amount of cash to scumbags.
Or have you been handed Everything and don't understand the value of money.
