when would you pull your plug

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

LOL.

Is there someone that would enjoy this?

The question is moot, because an EDC power failure would do it for you. :lol:

The truth is that by the time one gets to the point of "possible no return" almost no one has the means and/or will to pull off a suicide of any kind at all. Your body is being controlled more than likely by others at that point.

Think about it. Unless you have either a loaded gun nearby at all times or a syringe with a wonderfully deadly dose of 100% heroin or a small cute capsule of cyanide, etc. you are not going to be in any position to get creative in organizing a successful suicide attempt.

Many, if not most, go awry by the way. Obviously greatly embarrassing and maybe one has messed up their body in the "process".

The serious people organize their "cocktail" in the fridge well beforehand. Or like Hunter and Hemingway have loaded shotguns in the corner...

The thing about suicide discussions is that nobody can give you expert advice, they're all dead.

its interesting that the main reason was "pain", even though the people dont have pain actually.
