Things are actually starting to add up now. If I were too braindead to see anything racist about Shadow Warrior, I'd probably be an advocate of suicide as well. Good thing I'm neither. :unsure:

Do you think a supreme being sees everything in black and white? This is why I hate organized religion because they are pretentious enough to know what their god is thinking and can speak on their god's behalf using some book written by a man thousands of years ago.
I'm religious, but no stupid f*cking man is going to tell me they know what God is thinking or how God perceives anything

Bumping this topic to state my views on this matter, suicide is wrong 99.9% of the time. However I do consider it acceptable if and only if, someone who has a terminal illness and is in terrible pain 24/7, to either take their own life or be assisted with it. I mean isn't there a place in Sweden just for such occasions?

If I would have a terminal illness and in soo much pain I'd choose yes.
Quick death is far more humane than prolonged suffering.

The day I cant wipe my own ass I do not want to live any longer, I do not believe this would be selfish as I have told enough people this.

Let's move away from referring to euthanasia as suicide for a sec. What if your "suffering" was psychological in nature?

Keeping someone alive to prolong their suffering is selfishness.

Unless the terminally ill person chooses to not to be euthanised.

But keeping someone in horrible pain alive against their will is selfishness and wrong in my opinion.

Agree. At least with animals we do the human thing that is terminate their suffering.

I actually halfway wrote a post about such things earlier, but last time I said any such thing I was sent back to the psycho department. Why is it that if your animal is ill and you put it down to prevent further suffering that's fine? These people say animals are less receptive of pain (I think that's BS) so what's up with that? Thing is, you get horrible looks and yells in your direction when you suggest that it's fine to allow people with terminal and painful diseases to die - though if they are in a fit state to make decisions, it should be their choice. I have supported the idea that people should have a right to die since I was about six years old.

Edit : Removed a paragraph as I think it was likely to cause a flamewar or something. Don't ask.

I'm more on the fence about letting people kill themselves because of mental distress. I know some days I feel like I could just die, but then I'm okay a day or so later. I think there are alternatives to suicide in most cases.

My cat once broke a leg and the vet proposed to euthanize it because fixing it would cost a few hundred euros. We told the cunt to go choke on a fat dick and got the leg fixed somewhere else.

I mean that animals are very rarely put down because of "suffering" but because their presence becomes a financial burden and euthanizing them is cheaper. Has fuck all to do with "the human thing".

I dunno, it depends. I live on a farm. I've had to witness and even had to kill a few animals just because there was nothing that could be done.

I regret not doing it to some of my cats. Their situation was much worse than a broken leg, of course.

Also keep in mind that animals are killed for the sole purpose of us eating them.

Not as if it is necessarily a bad thing, a cow is likely to live a longer life in a ranch than nature.

Otherwise, you can only ate vegetables, and many animals are going to be killed for harvesting.

Never underestimate the power of exercise to make the brain feel good. I am currently trying to get my brother (who has serious depression/bi-polar issues) to stop with the pills that make him tired all the time and start lifting weights. I am going to try to train him up so hopefully he can pump endorphins through his body to improve general sense of well being as well as confidence. If ever I get injured and have to stop, I get depressed as I am so used to endorphins I regularly get from working out for the past 20 years.

I was comparing reasoning.

Will it really be a substitute in that kind of condition?

I don't know but it might and everything else he tried has failed. The hard part is actually getting him to stick with it for long enough for it to become a normal part of his life as it is for me.
The downside sucks, the longer you train the odds are you are eventually going to get an injury of some kind, then you get better and make that part of you body stronger eliminating the weak link.
I can get high using only a hand gripping device, even when injured there is usually some exercise you can do though nothing compare to weights for me, for some it's running.
For me weight lifting is a form of meditation strange as it sounds, it definitely has a positive effect on how your brain fires.

What are you implying? That he just keeps popping pills and does nothing about it?

physical exercise doesn't cut it for me. i need mental stimulation and activity to make my mind focus on the task at hand (instead of idle wandering which leads to negative thoughts)

in my case the chemical factory is broke. i was overstimulated for an extended period of time now i no longer produce a sufficient amount of endorphins. i would have to take up something extreme and become an adrenaline junkie, but my body is too broke for that

"Popping pills" is doing something to counter his mental condition.

Which obviously isn't working. Why else would Ronan be trying to get his brother off of them?

Truly Kathy, with the negative attitude you seem to have about trying to combat mental illness or depression, it seems you are inching towards suicide, truly believing it to be inevitable, even a cure almost.

But I can't say that as a fact since you've always been sort of dodging the question of your own thread. Kathy, what are your thoughts on suicide? No more half-answers or rhetorical questions anymore. We've all confessed our thoughts on it. Now it's your turn.

This is very true. Runner's high is pretty awesome.

A lot of people put yes down as their answer, but that doesn't mean they supported every instance of it. To what degree do you support suicide?
