Lunar Aura is still being judged by the masses


Default Would you try to talk someone out of suicide?

Just wondering what the majority of you guys will do if you witnessed IRL that someone was gonna kill themself.

Would you try to talk them out of it? Or just ignore the whole thing?

Me I'd try to talk them out of it but knowing my skills at comforting people they'd probably wanna kill me first and then themself

This girl told me she was gonna jump off the roof of her dorm. I talked her out of it so I could have sex with her again.

I'm always helping people like that.

ive always said alcoholics are suicidals to chicken sh*t to kill themselves.

so for the ones that actaully have the balls to do it, more power to you. its population control as far as im concerned.

but i also happen to think they should legalize all drugs, so everyone that wants to do it can hurry up and kill themselves and stop taking up space.

I would.. Because someone has done it for me.. Recently even..

Otherwise.. I thought about it before at one point, but I'll tell ya.. Holding a gun to your own head, its scary.. I was too "girlie" to pull the trigger..

Of course I would talk someone out of it.. I cant say that it wouldnt be worth it, however, I will say, you have the rest of your life to live.. Life is not all bad..

If I knew them and liked them, yes.

If I didn't like them or know them I would ignore them.

Frankly I think people crazy enough to commit suicide (no offence to anyone thats tried) should go ahead and do it because we don't need more crazies out there (and yes - killing yourself is crazy). I don't think anyone I'm friends with would try it so I don't think I'd be put in that situation. I try to surround myself with happy people.

Depends on the attitude of the person. If they seem like they want help then I'll gladly help them because I've already been in similar situations where I wished someone would offer an ear.

But if they're being an ass about it then go right ahead, free country

I would (and have) defer them to someone with experience with this type of thing. U can't be a hero and try to counsel someone that is suicidal if you have no experience in the matter. U may make things worse and have to live with that for the rest of your life.

by my reasoning? What is my reasoning again? Suicidal people are crazy and don't deserve to live. It's selfish anyway so yea, let them die - selfish bastards.

Depends on if there were going to do it in a really messy way I'd have to clean up after. That'd suck, and I'd probably try to talk them out of it. Or in someone else's house, at least.

If they're gonna blow their brains out then tell them to lean their head backwards over the toilet. Then you just gotta carry the body out and flush. No hassle!
