Devoted to the neglected art of suicide

While in some contexts suicide seems a legitimate, sometimes heroic or even romantic choice, in real life it is condemned and those who either commit or attempt suicide are perceived as either weak or cowards who flee rather than to face their problems. However this is a largely Western attitude. In Japan seppuku is perceived as noble and dignified. This site is devoted to suicide and takes a less dogmatic and politically correct and more humorous approach.

This site is neither well organized nor does it intend to be comprehensive but attempts to take a fresh look. Needless to say, this site is intended for open-minded thinkers, Puritans and Fascists, religious extremists are kindly asked to bugger off. To be blunt: This site does not encourage suicide, nor does it intend to provide such resources.

If you are actively considering suicide, this site is not the right place to turn to. Please consult to get help or go to counseling to find a small but useful list of sites.

We've got definitions of the term and a list of famous people who commited suicide and a list of reasons why people commit suicide. There is a tiny column on trivia and you may read or write your own quotes on suicide.

Check out the links to books and websites

If you want to, you can create your own suicide note and publish it here or read Kurt Cobain's or Eric Harris' supposed note or Romeo and Juliet's last words and Hamlet's famous contemplation on suicide according to William Shakespeare.

Finally, this page is dedicated to John Smith who started this site and killed himself on the 4th of January 2000 with a shot gun. His friends decided to continue what he started. Read a short story that was found among his things and sketches for his own suicide note.

We strongly encourage you to submit any material or links that you consider valuable or of interest to this site. Email us please also leave your feetback in the guestbook or take part in the polls and leave your vote or make use of the newly set up forum.
