Suicide is absolutely not the answer any problems. It is the opposite of it so I prefer to live that die.

Suicide is never the answer. There will be other choices. If you have hit rock bottom, then at least it can't get any worse.

Is it an answer? Certainly. Is it the right answer? Ah - that is a much more difficult question.

No never! Suicide means giving up. Never do that. I know of a family where it happened. The whole family was disappointed and dishonoured in front of other people. It was horrible. If anyone thinks of committing suicide, at least think of the future of the loved one you leave behind. I hope nobody does it.

My cousin committed suicide last year. She was estranged from her daughter and no amount of "try" was fixing the issue. She was not allowed to see her grandchildren. While this death was a blow to me and others in the family, sadly, it has not seemed to affected her daughter. While suicide is a personal choice, I do not think people realize the impact of how it affects others. The only exception that I could see, is if you had a terminal illness with no hope.

No, it is not the right thing to do. There are many ways to solve problems.

An act of suicide only aggravates pain further especially for the members of the family and loved ones. It is never the solution to a life challenge.

No because it makes you loss the chance to fight back and conquer your fear.

Suicide may seem like the only answer when one doesn't know that with a lot of effort, life could get better.

I have had a few people in my life commit suicide. I don't think this is EVER the answer. Tomorrow can always be a better day. You never know where you will be in 5, 10, 15 years. How can you make such a permanent decision when you don't know what the future holds for you? Not only is it irreversible but it is also so incredibly selfish. The people and loved ones you leave behind suffer and have a hole left in their hearts that should never have been there.

I never think it is the right answer. It devastates the lives of those that are left behind. Fortunately I've never known someone who has committed suicide

Suicide is not the solution to a problem.There is always a room for change and also repair of the damage caused. It's really wrong.
