  • Hey Guest,

    We made a Twitter thread regarding the Kenneth Law situation on Twitter at this link here if you would like to take a look. It shows that the journalists covering this case aren't objective and clarifies our position on the matter. If you would like to view the thread: Click Here
  • Hey Guest,

    The BBC, which have harassed our founders among others, is now actively promoting a seller along with the SN method in their news article here.

    The same journalists that have criticized this forum for promoting resources and are actively campaigning for its shutdown are now promoting these sellers and the SN method in this article for all to see. Academia has pointed this out, but they continue to promote the method along with making false claims regarding this website in the name of "investigative journalism" while ignoring the active harassment of our staff and previous founders.

    We have made a post here to debunk this nonsense and the false claims that the BBC has laid out in their article.

How did you first hear about and/or find your way to this site?

I found it through the NYT article. Before that I knew a website like this existed and I'd been searching for ages, had absolutely no idea how or where to find it, I really feel like without the NYT article I never would have found this place.

It was a long time ago now but I think that when researching methods I came across an anti suicide news article about someone who had ended their own existence after viewing a suicide forum, it didn't name the site but soon enough I found this site.

Searching for methods. Spent about a week just googling information on different methods and success rates and thought I had no other real resources except for one site that has details on methods, success rates and pain/discomfort until I found this. Not sure if I'm allowed to mention the site but I'm sure most of us know which one it is.

I was searching for practical topics related to suicide. Things like: How to do it so it looks accidental. What to get in order before doing it. Effects on children. etc. Unfortunately it was difficult to find anything useful, it was all preventative-related results. Then I came across the NYT article. It didn't mention the site by name, but it took 10 seconds to figure it out.

Then I read a lot of posts and decided to join. I wasn't planning on posting for a while, but I'd really like to be able to search the site. It also feels good to be able to talk about it openly without worrying anyone I know.

Tantacrul video. I wasn't even a minute into the video before I started desperately searching for this website. It took me a while, but I finally found the link in a Reddit thread discussing the Tantacrul video. Now I find out that the site was way easier to find .-.

I first discovered this forum in 2018 while searching for unconventional methods. It was the week after my birthday—also the same day I was discharged from the psych ward; different from my past methods such as overdosing or jump contemplating. I found the resource information on SN but never knew any sources, so I forgot about it for years.

Can someone point me towards the NYT article, please? Was it a recent one?

Through Tantacul, i have to say that first i was shocked to see that this forum existed (because i watched his video first) then when i came to see for myself i saw a group of good hearted people who look like they are genuinely trying to help each other. That's why I've decided to join you guys❤️. I couldn't believe how vaguely he generalised this forum.

He genuinely made this place seem like such a cruel place. It's not fair.

I came here because of his video as well and I feel relieved that I signed up. It's a safe space for people to openly talk about their feelings without being locked up 😭

I knew about SS because I've heard of the subreddit and that it's been banned, but didn't know it became an independent forum. I was pretty much just lurking on r/SuicideWatch but it's filled with people dishing out the usual platitudes.

Then the Tantacrul video happened and led me here. It's funny because YouTube kept recommending me his video even though I tried ignoring it. Eventually I gave in so here I am :)

From Tantracul's video. Although I didn't finish the video, I went straight ahead to look for it. I felt very curious as this is the first community I thought I could relate to. And I wasn't wrong. This is one place I genuinely felt I'm not alone.

Found this site in late 2018 or so, after the subreddit had shut down. Had been searching for methods and other suicide related stuff in general for a while now, and had found the ash archive in 2017, around the time I first read Final Exit, which, in spite of its disapproval of the suicide of people like me, was helpful in cementing the right to die for me, as something that is anything beyond my own primitive conception of it.
I kept searching more over time, putting different keywords in google search, going to the third page, etc. Eventually found posts on reddit about the banning of the ss subreddit. Eventually, that led me me here. Lurked for a few months before finally creating an account
