Agree entirely with olga and benni.

In any case, do you seriously think that someone on this site would advise you about a way to commit suicide. Get real, we're all here because we want to survive and recover, and we want everyone else here to do the same - including you.

Death is a one-way street and in 99.999999999999999999999999999999% of cases (you get the picture) there is another option.

You think your mother doesn't like you - my mother didn't like me either, so I left. That was a long time ago, and I've survived in spite of her.

And just for the record, a bottle of aspirin would be very unlikely to kill you. What it would do though, is cause severe damage to the lining of your stomach and internal bleeding. So it would be all pain and no gain.

Having OD's on aspirin as when I was 13 I can add it makes you feel really unwell but 26 years later I am still here.

The problem with attempting suicide by taking an overdose is that the outcome is far from certain.

It is very difficult these days to get hold of medications that are effective and if somebody takes an overdose of some of the stuff that's around they will simply cause organ damage which will cause long-term problems.

It is highly unlikely that aspirin would kill you - instead it will cause stomach bleeding and damage to liver and kidneys.

Barbiturates used to be the drug of choice for would-be suicides, but they're not prescribed very much these days.

If you go along this route, you could end up in a worse state than you are now I'm afraid.

I suggest that you visit your GP and discuss how you feel. You seem determined to reject any help though. I honestly don't know what's going on with you. Any problems that you have can be overcome with some determination on your part.

Please talk to someone, like benni said even if it's just to the samaritans. I'm a samaritan and we are here to listen.

Aspirin wouldn't kill you, just damage you insides anyway you don't want to commit suicide. please talk to someone.

If you're in the US then you can call this number toll free. You can be completely anonymous. You don't have to give your name, phone number, address or anything. And they are trained to listen and really help you. Very Happy
