I have created this thread because I am not happy at the rate at which suicide is becoming common amongst Nigerians at home and abroad. You may ask: don't I care about other nationalities? Well, I do but I fear that I may not be able to understand their condition as I would Nigerians. However, all people are welcome irrespective of their Nationality because every life is valuable and every individual is special (you wouldn't be here if God didn't think so).

I am using this medium to beg those that will contribute to this thread to understand that this is not a place for joking or taunting people. It is a matter of life and death. If you are feeling like dying, killing yourself or hurting those around you, I want to use this opportunity to beg you to talk to us here- don't do anything. At least humour us here with our folly, we know we cannot truly understand your plight but we are willing to learn from you.

Again: This is serious business (matter of life and death), don't come here to fool around with people or their emotions!

I would really like the moderator to sticky this as I think this is an area that posting on this forum can really make a difference, let us make it work!

Thank you!

If you are assailed by suicidal thoughts, the first thing to remember is that many people who have attempted suicide and survived ultimately feel relieved that they did not end their lives. At the time of attempting suicide they experienced intense feelings of despair and hopelessness because it seemed to them that they had lost control over their lives and that things could never get better. The only thing that they still had some control over was whether they lived or died, and committing suicide seemed like the only option left. This is never true.

Some of the thoughts that may accompany suicidal thoughts include:
• I want to escape my suffering.
• I have no other options.
• I am a horrible person and do not deserve to live.
• I have betrayed my loved ones.
• My loved ones would be better off without me.
• I want my loved ones to know how bad I am feeling.
• I want my loved ones to know how bad they have made me feel.

Whatever thoughts you are having, and however bad you are feeling, remember that you have not always felt this way, and that you will not always feel this way.

The risk of a person committing suicide is highest in the combined presence of (1) suicidal thoughts, (2) the means to commit suicide, and (3) the opportunity to commit suicide. If you are prone to suicidal thoughts, ensure that the means to commit suicide have been removed. For example, give tablets and sharp objects to someone for safekeeping, or put them in a locked or otherwise inaccessible place. At the same time, ensure that the opportunity to commit suicide is lacking. The surest way of doing this is by remaining in close contact with one or more people, for example, by inviting them to stay with you. Share your thoughts and feelings with these people, and don’t be reluctant to let them help you. If no one is available or no one seems suitable, there are a number of emergency telephone lines that you can ring at any time. You can even ring for an ambulance or take yourself to an Emergency Room. Do not use alcohol or drugs as these can make your behavior more impulsive and thereby significantly increase your likelihood of attempting suicide. In particular, do not drink or take drugs alone, or end up alone after drinking or taking drugs.

Suicide is not a solution to whatever you are going thru, it ends the possibility of things getting better, it kills the hope for a brighter future/tomorrow.

Another thing is that God gave us life, and taking it away by yourself is a great sin before God, infact suicide is the greatest sin sm1 can commit. Av read some posts about people feeling suicidal here in the family section, and i think these people needs help, and counselling, am using this medium 2 plead on dia bhalf, please do not insult, push, blame..them, they need words of encouragement, motivation and inspiration and i think that is the aim of this thread in the first place, and 4 those having a suicidal tot/feelings pls come out and share with us so we can help, and avoid being lonely cos research has shown that majority of those that commit suicide at one point or the other do isolate themselves 4rm people, pls be free 2 share with us. †нªηкs!

Thumbs up baby for this!
Who knows who might help save a soul.
One thing pple should know is this,a suicidal person around u will never let u know he want to commit suicide.but look out for these signs
1.Negative always.d person will never c anything good around him.
2.Always complainin and blaming whoever for whatever
3.Snappy but can apologise later
4.Performance extraordinarie.that is,if d person is a church person,he will double or triple his church attendance,pary goer,he will be rocking everyday,a schooler,his face is always buried on his books etc.he does these bc he use them to hide from his shadow.
6.Withdrawn.assuming d person is outgoin.
And lots more.
Also,look out for ur friend or neibor that has lost somebody very dear,jilted,a melancholic(high tendency of suicide),unloved or unreturned love,rejection,and those that hv controlin hands on their neck.
I can go on and on.
They r everywhere around us.a smile can make a lost soul to confide in u and when such happens,pls listen even if u don't hv d answer.
Will still come for examples.
By d way,I did it but was discovered so I write from xperience and d one I witnessed.
Thanks all.
