Before I found SS, hypothermia was my method of choice. Since I've been here I've read extensively about charcoal grill CO and hanging. I've read about N and SN but I don't think I'd ever be able to push through the SI for either of those. And I think I might be swinging back over to hypothermia?

After reading a lot about it, I realized in retrospect that I've been in stage one hypothermia (the completely uncontrollable shivering part) -- on a beach in July. It was at night and I was underdressed. I could see how I could have died if I'd passed out drunk and not been found (which would have been impossible at this beach, but you get my point -- I could find somewhere and it doesn't even have to be super cold).

I think if you avoid frostbite and knock yourself out with booze and pills for the first part, it could be a really nice way to go. I have Xanax and zero alcohol tolerance, so I think it could work as long as I found a very remote place where I wouldn't be found until I was truly dread.

Any thoughts? Attempts?

I'm also waiting for the cold. But I still doubt this method a lot. If I stay awake, how painful will it be? And it scares me that I might lose my mind before I die

I get the impression from accounts that I've read that it's more uncomfortable than painful. The early stages where you're still cognizant are uncomfortable. And the main opportunity for pain is if you are found -- the warming up is apparently the brutal part.

If you choose a night that is cold but not freezing that should minimize the potential for permanent damage if you are found.

what do you think is the ideal temperature for this method?

I'm not sure about ideal. I know it can happen as high as 50F if exposure is long enough, it's windy, you're wet especially. But I would probably shoot for mid-30s, as close to freezing as possible without getting there. Seems like that would make it faster.

I guess for people who live somewhere where it gets like -50F and you can become hypothermic in like ten ten minutes though, just go for it, freeze that bitch up.

Dying from hypothermia is very painful and you won't pass out. It will just be suffering for hours until your organs shut off one by one. It would suck. Just go to a gun range and shoot yourself with a sawed off shotgun or hang yourself if you want to take your life.

The cases I have read about where people died from hyperthermia were people walking home drunk from the bars and passing out on a cold winter's night- how drunk and how cold would be needed I don't know exactly.

That's what the booze and benzos are for?

My SI would not allow me to shoot myself, and hanging would be tough too (and is tough to get right, and had dre consequences if you don't).

I think hypothermia would be a great method if you use buterate. If the dosage is increased, then the buterate will act as anesthesia for several hours. I tried high dosage of buterate

I have seen homeless ppl here in the snow for nights on end ... no blanket. No assistance wanted. Obviously lived, but clearly depressed.
