If you are feeling urgently suicidal now:
Call someone NOWThe National Suicide Hotline number is
1-800-273-8255
Call a friend, a pastor, a therapist, Rescue Squad,Call 911 or go to your local Emergency Room.
Don’t drink or drug to dull the pain.
If you are drinking now, stop. Alcohol anddrugs release inhibitions that will make people do things they wouldn’t do if theywere sober. If you must consider suicide, consider it while sober, not whileintoxicated. Give yourself time to sober up before making any decisions.
Ask someone to lock up your guns or pills
. Don’t do it yourself. Thetemptation will be too strong to use them.
Find someone to sit with you until the feeling passes.
It WILL pass. It mayreturn, but for now, do not be alone. Don’t isolate yourself. Go sit in an all-nightrestaurant, go to a movie, go to the mall but get around people, be with people.
