What are some painless suicide methods?
I’m a useless sack of **** who cannot work, and I’ve been denied SSI, so it would be better for everyone if I were dead. I’d like to go quietly and peaceful, any suicide methods that can promise this?

Maybe, but this isn’t a site for things like that.
What made you think it might be?
You are not useless. People would not be better off without you, that’s all in your head. Even if they would be, which they wouldn’t, it doesn’t matter because you should be living for yourself, not for them. Things might get harder in your life, but that’ll give you the opportunity to see what else there is to it. Realize hardly anything has changed about your situation. You are just scared, and there are ways to get past feeling that way. Try looking up how to feel better or relax or cope. When you’re in a better state of mind maybe you could have an easier time thinking of how to appeal their decision about SSI or come up with creative ways to make money.
Whatever problem you think is true and permanent about your life right now, is temporary. I know you are hurting. I know you believe you are useless, but you are a perfect being and there is a way. I know from experience. Today, life is good. Really good. Go to the ER tell them what you are thinking. I did once and was admitted right there, they call it voluntary, usually two or three days. Free coffee, food, and even nicotine patches.
I attempted suicide six years ago, I believed I would never make it in the world, that there was something wrong with me and that if someone learned my secrets or how I really was honest about my thinking, they would hate me as much as I hated myself. But I found someone I trusted and I was wrong.
You are going to be great. I know.
Please go to the ER :) or at least write back.
You’re out of luck, there is NO painless suicide method. Most things you’ll find involve either pills or some kind of asphyxiation. Around 95% of attempted suicides that are pill induced fail. A failed attempt brought on through medicine is EXTREMELY painful.
You see, whatever form of suicide you attempt, your body will fight you on it. The human body has a built in need for self-preservation above all else. So, when you try and overdose on pills, your body shuts down certain functions, and devotes all energy to ridding you of the poison in your system. This leads to the most painful vomiting you have ever experienced in your life. The worst part is, your body won’t get rid of all of the drugs, it can’t get out every last bit. So you end up laying on the floor in agony, trying to vomit more when you can’t. At the same time, you get hit with the physical side effects of the medicine, which depending on what you use, can include convulsions, dizzyness, migraines, nose bleeds, and many other nasty feelings. None of which will kill you, you’ll lie there until someone finds you and gets you in a hospital, or until the medicine works it’s way out of your system.
If you go for one of the asphyxiation methods, such as the parked car in the garage, or putting a bag of helium or some other gas over your head, you will be in for a new kind of pain. First your lungs will start burning, followed by a headache from hell. At this point you can still convince yourself that the pain is temporary, and you will be wrong. When your body starts feeling the lack of oxygen, you will have involuntary convulsions. You’ll start feeling sick to your stomach, and you will begin what to me is the worst part, feeling panic. Even if you want to die, you WILL panic, against your will. You can fight the urge to pull the bag off your head, or get out of the car, but that will just lead you to pass out, your entire body stinging in pain as your muscles cry out for oxygen. And once you pass out, your body reacts without you. It’s like sleep walking. People that try the bag/mask method, wake up with scratches on their face, and the bag/mask torn to shreds. People locked in their cars, have woken up in extreme pain, with a broken window or the garage door opened.
The fact of the matter is, every way you try will be painful. I know, because I have been there. Life gets better, and the pain you feel, emotional and physical, when trying to kill yourself just isn’t worth it. Not when things can and will get better. They always do, you just have to have patience.
Sorry–if I have to stay in this world and work, so do you!
You can do a LOT more than you think! Why not see a pastor and take stock of your blessings?
You still have your life . . . and that means you still a part to play in the Plan!
