Does anyone have a deadline to die?

I put one month but if a miracle happens I might be able to hold off.
If I see no change I'm thinking this month on the 16th.

What's the point in planning so far ahead? If life's shit, why go through more of it if you'll still die before any arguable chance of "getting better"?

I like to set my deadlines days/weeks in advance. If I have a good method, why not spend an entire week planning to get it perfect then do it? Plus, I'm about to run out of weed for my chronic pain, and then my parents will buy me another ounce and we'll be even deeper in our financial pit, so I'd rather die before that happens.

My original date was sometime in the summer of 2011. I quit the only decent job I ever had and planned to end my life before my funds ran out. Wasn't ready to do it and ended up bankrupt in 2012. I've been in and out of work since, at times having to solely rely on family to survive.

So my deadline has long since past. I don't make any hard deadlines anymore, I find they're unrealistic.

I just have times when I won't do it now. Like around weddings, on birthdays, on holidays, after talking to a loved one, etc.

There's a chance i'll be gone next week but i've felt like that for years now. It'll happen when it happens, I don't really care, I just feel for my family.

I don't do well on dates, since aside from being anxious about living through shitstorms I also feel like I'm on a death row and end up chickening out. Now I'm trying to compromise by being somewhat vague about it. There'll be time for choosing an appropriate day. Right now it's early October, just enough time to wrap up some projects, fail people etc.

I reckon I'll be forever stuck in a vicious cycle of promising myself that "this is it," but there's a lot of potential for a milion failures in the next 2 - 3 months that might push me over the edge.

Hard deadline, mid-July. Have everything ready. Can't wait.
If you don’t mind me asking, how are you going to achieve suicide? I’ve been trying to figure out the best plan and was wondering if there were any tips

The options for the poll are a little limiting. My timeline is roughly two years. I have a lot to do in that timeframe.

I set a deadline for July 31th in February. Looks like I won't be able to go through with it. Not because my life got got better, it only got worse. I ordered SN a couple of weeks ago but chickened out (canceled).
New plan is waiting for my next paycheck, order SN again, travel to the beach one last time (haven't seen a beach for 12 years) and do it then. I took 3 weeks off at my shitty job. Planned date is second half of August. It sucks to be a coward.

I chose undecided because I'm waiting to see what's going to happen to my disability checks. If they take it away in the next few months then I will kill myself in that time frame. If they let me keep my disability then it will be sometime in the next five years. I will kill myself someday, simply because I can't handle the anxiety and depression I have to live with on a daily basis. Everything in life overwhelms me, even small tasks. I will not die by natural causes. No matter when it is, someday I will die by my own hand.
