...is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

It would seem that there are those who lose hope to the extent that they crave death. Many times the people that do this are very isolated from others and the shame is that a few kind words from someone at the right time might have the effect of saving a life.

Suicide is a waste in the extreme.

i think only weak people , who has no strengh to face the world would do such a thing .
our souls are so priceless , that shouldn't be taken . i'm not saying life is so easy to live in , it can be found both sadness and happinies , we should adjust and face it.

how quaint it assumes we have souls it assumes people who commit suicide are weak. a post that manages to be insulting and condescending at the same time.

i have strong opinions about suicide some of them may be close minded but plz just humour me, and i deeply apologize if anyone is offended by what i write, i think that suicide is a selfish act, (obviously this depends on the situation) but after seeing what suicide can do to a family i must say that it is, i think generally it is caused by ppl who have not developed their cognitive abilities to the point at which they can learn to deal with high stress situations, i always believe that every problem has a solution and that suicide is never one of them, as i am an athiest i will not follow the catholic belief that ppl's souls go to hell if they commit suicide however bieng an athiest means that i have other reasons for bieng against suicide, as i do not believe in an afterlife, i follow one of aristotles theories that the reason for human existance is to be happy, and that your actions should always strive towards bieng happy, and suicide does not make anyone feel happy, and it does not help anyone!! however i do not feel that i have any moral justification to judge people who commit suicide as i have never been in their situation, but i do feel that it is an option i would never take no matter what has happened!

To take the decision to kill yourself is not weak. No one takes it lightly and to actually decide that that is the way 'forward' for you takes more guts than you can possibly imagine. To wish for an end to pain and suffering is not weak, it is well thought out, hard considered choice and is ultimatly taken as a last resort after more suffering than many can magine. It is not an easy choice as many seem to think. Weak is so far from the truth, so very far.

The selfishness of suicide is a phenomenon created by those left behind. Killing yourself shouldn't be in the same category as eating the whole bag of chips yourself or hogging the armrest at the movies. After all, who is the one sacrificing something?

Of course, it is also the ultimate embodiment of self-pity. I think that suicidal people have gotten into a vicious circle where they treat their self-pity as a friend they can relate to; after all, it is in many cases their only source of sympathy and understanding.

And now I want a sober person who actually knows something about suicide to start talking!

why is it insulting and condescending???
i said what i think it's true , logical person wouldn't think to commit a suicide , because simply that won't be the solution. whatever the condicion we are facing , we shoudn't let ourselves thinking in such way.
there is no different between commit a suicide and taking drugs , if you notice the majority of people who resort to this things don't have the ability to face their misery , insted of facing and try to figure out what to do , they simply give up . that's because they are " weak " .

weak ok then are people die of cancer weak? people who havent enough faith in themselves and rely on believing in a fake god weak. were the jews who allowed themselves to be killed by the nazis and didnt fight back weak. if you want to call people weak maybe you need to define what weak is.

not really , there is no comparsion between cancer and commit a suicide,because this is god's willing , your destiny
people don't dedice to have cancer and die , but certainly we dedice to commit a suicide . you ask why?? simply they don't have faith in god, i mean why should we take our souls?? this is not only a sin but also weakness.

well in certain religions its a sin, some are accepting of it but christianity doesnt like it. I think it says in the bible that you cant take your own life, if you do you will go to hell - so i guess it just keeps getting better (no offense intended because i dont personally beleive that)

i hang back from talking about my own experiences on this subject because it is generally seen as wanting sympathy or being engrossed in self pity so i try to talk generally about it. yes i have mentioned suicide in my family but that was to indicate why i have such strong views about using 'weak' 'selfish' and all the other terms tossed out so casually to describe suicide.
