Many people at 12 step meetings share these feelings:
- I tried to commit suicide
- I thought about committing suicide
- Life was a living hell
- Life was unbearable
- I couldn't see a way out
- I just wanted to die
We go on to share what happened, and what it is like now.
Virtually all who attempted suicide share, in twelve step meetings, how glad they are to be alive today.
How to commit suicide
In Alcoholics Anonymous there is a saying, "If you want to drink that's your business; If you want to stop that's ours."
Similarly, if you want to commit suicide that's your business, and even Google will help you find out how to commit suicide.
Before you make that decision, we have a few suggestions:
- Ask yourself this question, "What have I got to lose from listening to other people who have felt the way I feel right now?"
- Talk to someone about your depression.
- Learn more about your suicidal feelings. You are not alone in having these feelings.
Before you commit Suicide
You are welcome to come along to an appropriate 12 step meeting and listen to how some of us have been right where you are now as we share:
- our experiences of what it was like,
- the strength we have found
- the hopes we have for ourselves, and others like you.
- that thoughts of suicide have now passed
There is no need for you to share at a 12 step meeting, and we repect your wish to remain anonymous. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all 12 step programs.
There are no dues or fees at 12 step meetings.
