• 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.

I am trying to find the least painful way. I am an ex-alcoholic and will plan to drink until drunk, then jump. I am too lazy and depressed to arrange a will or to write a note. The only thing I will miss is my cat. But my roommate loves her and will take care of her.

As Cyanide mentioned, it isn't a 100% method and never will be because of something called terminal velocity.
However, if you do jump from a bridge you will drown if you don't die from the impact.

For me, yes. The bridge I’ve chosen is the same, no one has survived and it’s of similar height. The only thing I can find when it comes to jumpers that survive is that they went feet first.
Also as far as I’m concerned there are no 100% full proof methods. There are all kind of miracle stories for times people should have died. There’s always a risk that something won’t go as planned. That someone that should have never been there shows up and interrupt a plan.

What is making me worry for you is the getting drunk. If you're an ex-alcoholic, get drunk and survive for whatever reason, then you face the uphill battle of getting sober again. :hug:

I know it may seem incidental but please rethink throwing it away, even for the slightest chances. I've undone over a decade of hard work and, if I don't ctb, I'm in for a hell of a road back which is just going to add to what I have to do. Getting to a better place after depression and being suicidal is hard enough but fighting addiction is worse.

I would say it also depends on whether it is deep water, the time of day (daytime vs nighttime), and of course, weather conditions (rainy, sunny, windy clear day, etc.). During a rainy day, I would expect there would be less people willing to save someone from drowning or have a harder time doing so (as it increases the risk for the rescuer). As for night time, you are under the cover of darkness, which makes it easier to not be seen. Whatever method you choose, I hope you find peace. :hug:

Which bridge is that?

I've been leaning towards jumping in my head but I'm still so undecided. Wish I could make a decisive decision

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge is the second most popular jump site in the world. It is 245 ft (75 m) high. You hit the water at a speed of 75 mph (121 km/h).

34 people have survived it.

Nothing is a sure bet.

Alcohol increases the chance of surviving impacts because you don't tense your body. This is an old thread though. If the OP has already jumped I hope they found peace.

Sort of related, is a 186-ft jump onto concrete a safe bet? I know I wouldn't hit terminal velocity, but the statistics I've read estimate it would be 95-98% effective. If I chose this height and had a straight fall onto concrete, how crucial would it be for me to land headfirst?
