Done. I thought the text boxes were a little limiting in size, but otherwise it's a decent survey. Those statistics were also pretty interesting. I hope you find what you're looking for ;)

Yes, but not seriously enough to act upon it. The mostly rational side of myself takes over and says "no, why waste 20-30 more years of misery".

No, it's the weakest and most selfish thing a person can do.

lol, thanks Yannick. Good thing I don't get that emo and depressed anymore otherwise you could have made me try again.

But its not selfish at all IMHO, Its your life, People who say its selfish are selfish themselves for thinking that you shouldn't kill your self. If people want to end their lives for their own reasons, then hows that selfish. The friends that say its selfish are the selfish ones, wanting to keep you for themselves, and not understanding anything the person maybe going through.

Also, its not the weakest thing, Its probably gotta to be among the bravest things someone can do for themselves that directly effects themselves. Your taking your own life, knowing you can't come back, That takes a strong person to do that. Only thing that is braver and stronger would be to say I love you to someone or jump of a cliff for someone.

Uh, you just did consider it in order to come to that conclusion. You just decided against it.

Same.

I've considered it, but never actually done anything. The few times i've considered it was when i was depressed pretty bad. I could never actually attempt anything because i would think that if i done it, i would lose the chance to ever make it better.

A few gripes with the survey - for instance the race selection - shouldn't it be caucasian instead of white?

Why do you think the rate of suicide rose among in this demographic?

What if I don't know that the rate of suicide rose in my demographic? Or what if I think it might be even lower? By percentage not absolute amounts.

Also I guess everyone thought about it at least once. What it would be like to boom end. But thankfully only a low ammount of people have actually tried it :~

I've considered it along the lines of "maybe I should just top myself, would make things so much easier", but never seriously enough to plan it out.

It's usually stress and peer pressure that gets me depressed on occasion.
