    I've thought about it and even discussed it extensively with close friends. But it was only because we enjoy pondering and debating such subjects.

    For those of us lacking a future-self capable of wanting to live, it is ideal; for others, it is abortion.

    I've thought about it in the sense of "why not?". I think there was a thread about it on intpcentral. I found it to be an interesting question. Ultimately I think that life is my natural state. Ending it on my accord would be unnatural. Besides, I'm not sure what happens after life so just in case nothing does happen I want to live the life I'm living for as long as possible because the possibility that this is it seems to me to be very real.

    I think I'd only ever do it if I thought I had done all that I wanted on earth and my death wouldn't affect anyone else. All I'm saying is that if I'm 100 and I don't think living anymore has any value to me or others then why not end it? Just to see what happens?

    Life is a waste of time, in my opinion.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    ^^ May i ask why you believe this to be the case?

    I am not saying it's right or wrong, i'm just curious as to your mind set.

    I agree.

    I find all of this to be pointless. I keep holding out in hopes of finding a purpose or rather a point to all of this, but I have the mindset that all of this is so meaningless.
    A thought that does stop me time and time again is that in my opinion, there is nothing after this either so what's the point. To any of it. Life or death.

    I thought about it a month after I turned 21, but I didn't care about it.

    Whatever meaning we may contrive from our existence, so as to give our lives purpose, will become bereft of itself when we no longer exist. To put it another way, perhaps I could find a cure to cancer, but what's the point if the patient I've cured will die of natural causes regardless?

    Take this cancer concept and apply it to all of mankind and our ideals, goals, etc. and all progress becomes inefficient... It's like trying to stop Niagra Falls from falling, with a pair of chopsticks... And perhaps even, and I say this with no intention of offending anyone, romanticizing this futile act is absurdly stupid.

    And no, I don't think happiness is a sufficient enough reason to live or to continue living.

    Also, I should mention that I am a gigantic fan of Posthumanist/Transhumanistic thought and because of this I am also a gigantic fan of irony.

    I've had people close to me who were suicidal, and that has kept me from being willing to consider it. The emotional assault on those around you is beyond the comprehension of someone imploded with depression. I knew suicidal people around the time I was a teenager and first experiencing severe depression. I would have images of being dead come into my mind, but I would not give in to the idea of suicide and never will. Even if it is not the fault or motivation of the perpetrator, it is capable of an immeasurably cruel effect. It can happen as a result of chemical imbalances, and distorted perceptions, and not be the person's fault, but those left behind feel unmeasurable pain, and many outsiders take to the harshest of judgments blaming them. This is the knee-jerk social reaction. So when someone commits suicide they start a chain reaction of cruelty and judgment.

    For those physically capable, there is always someone who can benefit from your life if your focus is on giving instead of having needs filled. It is a different context for issues of euthanasia and such, but for other scenarios it can be selfish because you rob the world of the help you had the capacity to give.
