Today, I attempted suicide for the first time (hopefully not the last). My method was full suspension hanging and I obviously botched it. I didn't take into account the fact that when the noose closes around my neck, it will drop down a little as the free length of rope increases. As a result, when I jumped from the chair, I ended up with my feet touching the ground and I quickly pulled it off my. My neck hurts a little bit but fortunately there are no marks on it. If you plan on using this method, make sure you don't make the same mistake as me. I will probably try again tomorrow with a better setup and report back if I survive.

Don't beat yourself up, I've got 4 attempts to my name. Good luck on on succeeding. I hope you find the peace that you want.
May the universe be kind to your soul.
