    Wow! I hope you get some help at the psychiatrists office, maybe get some antidepressants or advice and/or go to AA.
    My friend's husband killed himself with absolutely no warning, a year ago. The family was devastated.... and will never get over it.
    I really hope you can pull through Wally. You should maybe place yourself in a hospital in the psychiatric ward for awhile. Alcohol is not recommended as it is a depressant. Life is precious and suicide is the easy way out imo. You could have many good years ahead, clean and sober. Don't do it! Do you hvae family/friends in your home country, perhaps it is best to be near them. Living in a foreign land sometimes isn't the best at times like these. All the best. PM if you need to.. always have an open ear to listen.

    ^Is that a trick question? If he's addicted to alcohol and /or drugs it is better to be sober in his state of mind. He can't think straight if he is under the influence.

    You are being a bit selfish, you have no health issues, you are not starving, you are not being tortured, you are living and have lived in the most developed countries on the planet. Get real! You have to start again, so what? Many others have done it before you.

Don't do it Wally, you could be living the best days of your life this time next year.

    I too had a friend who did the same and I now think and feel exactly the same.

    The legacy you leave Wally will be one of pain for other people.


    That's a cunty thing to do.
    I agree with all the people above.

    You have to realize that you are not rational at the moment, Wally. And that you will become more rational as time passes....as long as you substitute alcohol with something else. It will just make you more depressed.

    That's just depressing.

    I prefer Tom Hanks in castaway's theory. The tide comes in and out. The idea is to keep breathing until one day the tides brings a sail.

    yes, there is. i am grateful. but only i know my situation - although i have tried to explain it. the things most of you would take for granted are non-existent for me - or very difficult.

    at 53 i finally understand things ... but its all too late. everything, including myself, is just too screwed up...

    I don't agree with some that suicide is a selfish act. I believe it's the failure of the mind to make a rationale decision.

    What is selfish however is your posting about it in this thread. Get the real world help you clearly desperately need.

    It's not selfish for Wally to be posting here. The worst that could be said is that it might be self-indulgent, but even then I think he can be well-excused.

    Wally, you just said that you now understand things. That's a great start.....begin from there, and take one step forward at a time. Even after only a few days, you will feel better.....as long as you stay off the alcohol. As has already been pointed out, it has a depressant effect.

    What a nasty, self-absorbed, narcissistic, little man he really is.

    I believe it is never too late.. that is in your mind, Wally. Life isn't over because a girl you were in love with can't take you back. Life moves on and many people who suffer trauma seem to get by.. look at all the people who live with PTSD everyday. I'm not minimizing your experience, but you really need to try to better yourself instead of just saying there is no hope. Look at the vid if you can. I agree with Rant, that coming to this thread, may not be helpful, you ultimately have to get the help you need off the forum.

    Wally's talking about killing himself... Prancer's concerned with being seen to be offering help.

    It's all about him.

    He already erupted and went on a temper tantrum earlier, the mods have cleaned it up.

    That was no temper tantrum....that was a pointed comment about you....as you are well aware. Doubtless you, Ant or KW reported it.

    Yeeeesss....that's why I also send him PMs of support.

    You moron...you don't even know the difference between "rational" and "rationale".

    It was an auto-correct from my phone which had precisely zero impact on the meaning.

    But hey you keep focusing on the important stuff and making it all about you, you pathetic, spiteful, little man.

    You aren't really following the progression of the thread, are you ? Or who is giving positive advice and who is not ?

    How about saying something positive to Wally instead of both self-aggrandizing and trolling ? It's inappropriate on a thread like this.

    Don't be a wally, Wally.

    We only go around that big ball of fire in the sky around 80ish times in our lifetime.

    You have already done over 50 revolutions, so you might as well stick around for the other 30 until nature takes its course.

    Yes, exercise, the right diet and surrounding yourself with the right people is good, but so is doing the shit you have always wanted to do like having a line off Escobar's grave, hiring a lady of the night and doing the kinky shit you fancy or jumping on a motorbike and riding 3000km without a plan.

    Choose life.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.
