Top 10 Common Ways to Commit Suicide

I considered several of these list items in the past before getting help.

The Top Ten

1 Hanging Yourself

Any recommendations where to hang?

Easiest and least painful. I've planned it. Probably won't do it though. - Catlover2004

Ima try this in a few days, the only problem is that I don't have rope, so I'll have to use wire

Honestly debating on doing this one

2 Overdose

I'm not suicidal and I'm not advocating suicide in any way, but if I were to choose a way to kill myself, this would be it. You feel nothing with most drugs, you just pass out and never wake up. And it's hard to mess up with this one. If you hang yourself, there's a possibility you won't break your neck and you'll have a painful death if you don't get down. With cutting yourself, it's easy to miss the vein. The only way to screw up here is to not take enough or take the wrong drug, which is hard to do if you read the bottle and swallow the whole thing. All in all, painless, quick, hard to mess up. No wonder intelligence services use them for their spies.

I sometimes feel to do it :'( - Getovait

I'm going to do it

Nyc one

3 Cutting Oneself

Most satisfying way - DiamondWolf

Need to take a lot of aspirin and plenty of water to make it work. Painless to slide a 16 gauge needle in your arm in the bathtub after the prep and just fall asleep. Helps to take five or six benadryls and a few shots of tequila. Very relaxing and peacefully as the blood darkens the water.

Wouldn't work but blood is yum

Decapitate urself

4 Jumping Off a Height

No. If you are doing suicide (hopefully you aren't) never do it that way. Imagine if your suicide attempt fails, and you'll be your whole life crippled. - Disturbedpotato

Very effective for my uncle.

Well, I mean it would hurt but worth ;3

5 Intentionally Drowning

Read good stuff about it. Worth a try

I tried to the other day but I needed something to hold me down since my instinct or something got in the way of that.

Good plan

6 Killing Yourself With a Firearm

This is probably the quickest and easiest way to kill yourself, because a gunshot to the head will kill you instantly 9 out of 10 times. People very rarely survive being shot in the head.

My bro did it to himself so it must work.

Instant quick

7 Suffocation

Shows a metal band - SoldierOfFortune

Voted for this just cause it has has a metal band as the thumbnail m/ - JordanFireStar

Judging by the image best way to die- suffocated in a mosh pit. - SoldierOfFortune

This is the one I’m doing

8 Poisoning

Only cyanide-kalium will work. Or some heavy drugs, but don't forget to take something against vommiting before you try it otherwise it will not work either.

Michael Jackson used propofol, so this must work.

9 Electrocution

Doesn't work like in the movies. The fuses will cut out the electricity. Unless if you take the fuse out and make a connection instead with a very big electric wire that doesn't burn or break.

10 Alcohol Poisoning

Tried it and it worked, great stuff! Death is great would definitely recommend.

Probably a good way to go


Yeah this could be the best way to go you would need a blood level of over 2.5
or more to be sucessfull

The Newcomers

? Drug Overdose
? Laughing to Death

These things could be the cause of death

• Ruptured brain aneurysm
• Cardiac arrest
• Collapsed lung
• Strangulated hernia
• Gelastic seizures
• Stroke
• Asphyxiation

The Contenders

11 Drinking Bleach

Obviously the most flavorful

I love gettin high and I'm 12

Only lemon makes my bum tingle

Bleach is a really good anime

12 Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide Is odorless and colorless. Your unable to detect it entering your system. The best way to kill yourself, slowly... But surely

13 Inject an Air Into Your Blood Stream

This causes seizers, and doesn't mean you'll die.

14 Self Strangulation

Like darth vader but without the Star wars

Gonna do this tonight C:

15 Shooting Yourself

If its in your head, you wont feel a thing, your pain function everything so if you shoot yourself in the head you will not feel a thing all your senses are shut down. A quick painful death

I think this is the most painless suicide

Quick and painless

verry gut

16 1000 Cuts

It really helps your neck

It helps

17 Stepping in Front of a Motor Vehicle

I'm thinking of this

18 Starving Yourself

You can starve yourself till u die,but it's hard because they may force feed you

I think this will help me

I tried that. It doesn’t work

19 Quick Stab Into the Throat or Heart

A quick stab into the throat or heart, you might have to gasp for air but you will not feel any pain unless you don't do it right

20 Squashing Yourself


21 Car Crashing

I would not suggest this one because, you see, it hurts other people - AnonymousChick

It sounds fun

Tried this...without a seatbelt drove 80 mph into a archery range, went through 2 fences and survived because I WASNT wearing my seatbelt, wound up with a DUI for old pot in my system instead

22 Stabbing Yourself

When you feel insane, who cares what you do or how you feel? So long as you're not empty before death. Most visually pleasing, I bet.

23 Food Poisoning
24 Drinking Too Much Water

Don’t do it, it really hurts

25 Bridge Jumps

The golden gate bridge is the most common place to jump and 99% of the time you will die, there has only been 1 person has serviced so it's a good one to actually die.

Yeah maybe this should be a shot

This is an old one but it will do

26 Choking Self

Holding your hands against your neck for too long

Hokong your self with your hands doesn't work you would have to tape your hands around your neck for it to work

27 Drowning in Swimming Pool
28 Burning Yourself
29 Step in Front of a Car

Quick + most likely gonna die

30 Impale Yourself

Hurts but worth it

31 Exposure

You could die from starvation and frostbite

32 Freezing to Death

The effect of hypothermia on your brain decieves you into having a calm, pleasant death, and can be done with absolutely no pain if you avoid frostbite. The main limitation is the availability. For the best experience, an Alpine setting is optimal, because of the nice scenery. Shoving yourself into the fridge just isn't the same.

Probably not most easiest however very effective throughout time
