• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Given that it is a solitary endeavor, ASMR may benefit those who would like to feel at least some sense of companionship leading up to or during the final moments.

Some examples (there are many other ASMR channels aside from these):

[edit] these vids are used by a majority of people for relaxation & sleep, so it is fairly common to just listen to the audio (no need to watch, you can just listen and let yourself drift off and zone out)

I feel this would throw me off.
I rather just focus on why it is that I'm killing myself and try to feel sure about my decision.

Die and let die I suppose ;) That's absolutely fine, my friend. Although it may take some rummaging to find the right vid (likely very quiet, sleep/relaxation-oriented for some of those who will be using barbiturates) I know there's some family-less/friendless folks out there for whom it would be a valid virtual stand-in. One other possibly potent use of these types of vids would be to aid inducing a trance state of consciousness. I only have anecdotal evidence of this, but: some who have experienced either aborted or failed attempts, self-reported a very distinct trance state in the preceding moments.

big side note that I forgot to mention: one need not watch the vid; ASMR vids are frequently only listened to/only use the audio
