This is not about the 3 best suicide methods. It should rather take into account the availability in your situation.
Mine: 1. SN (not 100% sure about the availability when my time has come)
2. Amitriptyline cocktail and lay on the rail.
3. Amitriptyline cocktail and laying in the bathtube
This list is clearly influenced by the fact that I have a ton of Amitriptyline here. Number 2 is the version when I am confident to pass SI. It must be pretty hard tbh. Number 3 is the more peaceful one. However I've heard of permanent damage in rare cases.
So I hope number 1 will be possible.I am hesitant to buy SN due to several reasons.

I think if I would have it I would be daily contemplating to take it because I really like this method.This endless thoughts would make me very depressed. I know myself that this would happen. I am not fully sure when I will need it maybe after it would expire beforehand. I hope it will be on the market if my recovery attempt fails.

1. Partial suspension. Dying alone in my bedroom would be the ultimate end to a life of loneliness
2. Jumping headfirst. A moment of peace before you hit the ground would be nice.
3. Gunshot to the head. Very quick, low chance of failing. I don't own a gun though..

1. Hanging is my most likely possibility, it has always been my preferred method as it requires lack of supplies
2. Jumping - if I get desperate I could overcome the SI needed for this option
3. Shallow Water Blackout.
I would choose SN/N over these if I was able to access it, but I think it is more likely I will go for something else. I would never go for train.

Why not train? It is my option in case they lock me up in the psych ward when I am extremely desperate.

1. Charcoal, I have everything I need. Its peaceful and therefore I feel it won't be too hard to overcome SI (especially if I combine it with medication and/or alcohol)
2. Jumping. I live near a bridge and often think about it in times of desperation. However good samaritans could easily foil my plans even if I get past SI
3. Exsanguination, theoretically could happen but it would be tricky to pull off. Also a very messy method which puts me off a little

SN or short drop. I don't want to disfigure my head and don't want to experience any pain. I think N or H would be the easiest and most pleasant way to go from what I have read (for educational purposes).

With SN is there tiredness? How does the person feel when they are experiencing a fatal SN overdose?

Oh man
1) SN. I already have it.
2) partial or full hanging. Just hanging. I would use pretty much any door onto my hallway, lay a blanket on the ground for a bit of comfort. Then I would tie the end of a rope to the inside handle, put it over the top (may have to make a notch for it to fit) so my door cant open as it opens inwards and then my weight will keep it closed as I slump forward. May also do this in the bathroom because it would be more comfortable.
3) I live on the 13th floor of a high rise building. I think about jumping out of my very large and easily opened windows every. damn. day.

If it was the only option available, then maybe I would consider it, but from what I have read it sounds awful.
The death penalty hanging was considered so degrading that the convicts asked to be pardoned for beheading. Hanging that fails makes the person handicapped.

Death is not degrading

I have suffered trauma from being asphyxiated and would therefore not pursue hanging unless it was by drop. Dying in such a way would be terrifying. I had a 'suicide attempt' roughly 5 years ago in which I jumped off a bridge into water. It was only 30m high and so the chance of death was not great, but I feel fortunate - knowing now what it is like to be deprived of oxygen - that I did not die in that way.

My method would probably be (car)fentanyl due to its availability and potency and my belief that it would be relatively painless to other methods which are accessible to me. I would otherwise consider jumping from a height onto concrete instead, although this scares me.

1: Nitrogen exit bag. I like this one because there is little to no risk of vomiting or fasting. Only problem is getting a medical grade regulate seems hard.
2: SN: Quick painless and seems easy enough, but I really don't want to risk vomiting. Silly I know, but it is what it is.
3: Gun: The most popular method in the US, but it just seems messy. And I still need to get a gun:ahhha:

How much Xanax would I have to take? I didn’t think it was possible that way. I have heard that people get blackouts and do crazy things on benzos, I was worried about that so haven’t done any.

Depends on circumstances.

Charcoal?

also, I’ve heard exsanguination is quite painful but I’m not entirely sure.

I am hesitant to buy SN too. Even though it’s legal here, there seems to be concern about it. I don’t want to get in trouble or it get confiscated and embarrassed.

I really don't know, that's why it's at the bottom of my list. I have a few hundred milligrams. It's basically my "if I can't make anything else work, may as well try it" method.

1. Partial suspension hanging. This is my preferred method. It feels appropriate.
2. F. My mother has many patches. I would just have to figure out how to get them when I visit her.
3. Charcoal.

Regardless of the method I will carry it out after hanging signs and putting a bag over my head. I don’t want whoever finds my body to have to look- it will undoubtedly already be terribly traumatic just to find a body, let alone see the face. In an ideal universe I would never be found at all and fade into nothingness and obscurity but we can’t always get what we want, can we. I want to cause as little harm as I can, all the same.

1. SN
2. Partial Hanging
3. Bathtub Drowning

I would try SN and partial hanging 10 times before attempting a bathtub drowning since drowning is my biggest fear but that was the only other method I thought of that wouldn't affect others or make my death somebody else's problem.

1) Jumping off a bridge into a river.

2) Buying a jeep and driving out into the boonies without a cell phone until gas runs out. Then letting myself die from dehydration/starvation.

3) Suicide by cop.

Can't be bothered with SN, ropes, or exit bags. Just don't have the dexterity or patience to prepare.
