• 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 read many stories about suicide and in some way want to copy them as in if it works for them it will work for me but then at the same time I want my suicide to be unique - anyone else figure like this ?

subjectively creative is the only unique worth having. It's worth making personally satisfying, and unless you are already in a position of notoriety don't waste your time attempting to make it unique in a public way. Just focus on making your subjective experience unique. It's obviously better to die in a pleasant way (if you can acquire the necessary resources to arrange for that), than to die barely cognizant, aged, in a hospital bed. An analogy would be akin to the child who steals candy and enjoys eating it in privacy. Death is the de facto destination of every individual, so in the end the only thing that really matters is what state of consciousness you die in.

Being remembered for my suicide is one of the main reasons I'm so doubtful about catching the bus. If you were to die in a "unique" way, you would be most likely be turned into an example that non-suicidal people would use to perpetuate the states that get us into this head space anyway. I would only be concerned with dying in pleasant way; not trying to kill yourself in the most unusual way possible.
