What do you think about it? Suicide has had different purposes before such as being an action to incite social change or being a method of escape from pain. We all know what those useless parrots think that dare call themselves "helpful" but what are your thoughts?

I don't think it's necessarily morally wrong (unless you're a parent with obligations to your children or something like that). That being said, there's so much to do in life that I really don't see the point. Just think of life like an open-world game, sure you can't do everything but there's still plenty available to you. Hell, if you want to die why not try dropping some acid or going skydiving first. If you're going to be dead anyway why the hell not.

Because it doesn't really matter, you're going to be dead either way.
I don't necessarily disagree with you but if you're going to kill yourself either way doing all that stuff sounds like a bother. You could just end it faster.

I think it's sad and I wish there was more one could do to help people who hate life that much. I wish it was possible to bring some light into their lives and make them enjoy living... but sometimes there's nothing anyone can do and in some cases keeping people alive can be more cruel than letting them die.

I'd like to end my own life, but I don't want my mother to suffer. She'd take it really badly. I'm trying to hold out until after she passes away.

I don't think it should be used as a tool to manipulate others after death (ie: forcing others to feel guilty or incite social change, as you brought up), but other than that, I dislike the fact that it's against the law to harm oneself. I certainly don't advocate that anyone here do it- I'd much rather that you found something to live for, even if it it's selfish or minor- but I still believe every person has the right to end their own life if they feel like it. The imprisonment of people that are already trying to kill themselves into hellish psychiatric wards is a horrible form of torture.

I suppose that it is sometimes appropriate, but most of the time it seems like a waste. The vast majority of suicides are done for pretty stupid reasons, like relationship problems or something materialistic.

Oddly, those who kill themselves due to lack of resources or money tend to off themselves with no problems whatsoever, whereas those who have depression tend to have a life instinct that kicks in right when they are about to die. Just imagine experiencing wanting to live right after you made the decision to die; that is way, way worse than being suicidal, I think.

It's a common thought that depression is a mechanism which evolved to impede self destructive action like suicide.

I would speculate that those people who kill themselves easily (like traders jumping off of buildings) are highly motivated individuals and are as far from depression as anyone else.

I've had several bouts of depression recently and tempted suicide but I could never even begin to do it. Like what >>22333 said, there's so much left to do and see it'd be so petty to kill myself just because I feel sad more than I like. Plus I can't imagine the impact it would have on the people around me, I'm no saint but I know people would be greatly affected by my death, especially my family.
