I hate those well-wishers beyond any margin.... But if the guy allowed himself to be lured and talked out, it means he wasn't ready. Moral of the story? Don't talk to strangers with beer..

Indeed.. must have been a dead broke alcoholic to take a beer over suicide if he was actually considering jumping.

That story was annoying to me because it reinforces the idea that people who are suicidal aren't rational, that we simply view events incorrectly, it's the depression talking, we haven't tried, etc.

It's almost like gaslighting, where they're telling us we're the ones who are crazy about what's real.
