If you have a comment on suicide in general, or a specific response pro or con to any of the reasons given here for not committing suicide, please give them. I may write another post dealing with the typical anti-suicide cliches (doesn't mean they are wrong or that I am pro-suicide). "A permanent solution to a temporary problem" is pretty common. But of course, life itself is temporary and yet a permanent problem as long as you're alive. The afterlife is another question entirely, and may have some bearing on the issue as well, depending on how one perceives the probabilities.
