I really doubt that anyone can do that. Life is hardwired to preserve their own life thus you have zero incidence of people downing themselves with their face in a bowl of water. You instincts will kick in whether you like it or not!


yeah? well what about people who comit suicide? they can ignore their "instincts"

Yeah. Well, their instincts don't have a chance to kick in when the bullet leaves the barrel or when their head touches the concrete at 120 mph. It's all conscious decision up until then. Really now, did you ever hear of someone committing suicide by choking themselves with their bare hands? Or by submerging their face underwater in a bowl? It's one thing when you pull the trigger but as for your holding your breath till you black out; that's closer to choking yourself to death which does not seem to happen all that much. Otherwise, it'd be in the news because everyone loves a unique story like that.

people have found numerous, inventive ways to kill themselves that aren't quick and cause substantial strain to their mental, physical, and emotional stamina... bleeding out, burning, gassing... etc.

so this subject is just a matter of willpower.

anyway, we're off topic now. if u still wanna talk, PM me.
