How to kill yourself with a shotgun

I am so sorry you are suffering such intense emotional pain that you looked up how to kill yourself. As bad as it is, there is no rush to kill yourself right now. Give my late son Charles a few minutes of your time.

Watch the video on this page. It’s from Charles and he hurt as much as you do now. He  killed himself in 2015 and I will never be the same. He was so talented. So loved.

And he thought the world would be better off without him. He was wrong. No one is better off with someone that has a heart as big as Charles had. I sometimes wonder what he would have done if he lived, if we had been able to help him. If he had only asked for help.

Please ask for help.

  1. I came here for a legit suicide advice, i feel your loss but i dont appreciate you clickbaiting people. if you have no solid advice to give. Say your comforting words to whoever wants to hear them.

    1. I feel those experiencing suicide intensity are not themselves for the amount of time that brain attack is happening. I do understand and appreciate your objections and I also understand it would make you angry.

  2. Anne,
    I am sorry for your loss. Your son was young and had life in front of him. I am old, in pain, and my life is behind me. My thoughts of suicide are selfish. I am tired of pain and have no hope of change. It is not that the world is better off without me, as the world does not care about me at all. It is that I am better off without the world.

    There are only two things that hold me back from completing my task. I don’t want to hurt those who foolishly love me and I fear Hell, but as time marches forward, those reasons hold less and less sway over me. Why is suicide seen in such a negative light? How many failed suicides try again until they get it right?

    1. Dave I’m so sorry for your pain. I think social stigma has suicide in a bad light. But I’m sure you mean why can’t it be an option. I think that most people really don’t want to die. That’s what I have found from talking with those who have lived experience.

      All I know is how hard it is for me to live with my son’s method of death. I guess it’s this, too. With all the millions of sperm and eggs that could have joined, I actually got the opportunity to be in this world. And since I did get the chance, shouldn’t I make the most of it? So even though I live with the pain of my son’s death, I want to contribute to life in a memorable way. That has meant working through a brain tumor, an attack at knifepoint, a lightning strike and my son’s suicide. It is idealist for sure. But that’s the way I roll.

      Thank you for commenting. I want to know about your pain because it helps me to understand the “why.”

  3. Hi there…
    I am not looking for a way to kill myself….
    My son Brandon (16), committed suicide on 15 August 2018, I believe it was murder, but no one believes me.
    I just want to say thank you for your site, and I pray young teenagers will find it, so that they can get help…

    I was actually looking for a site that can actually prove to me that what he had done, is even possible…

    Kind regards
    Catherine

    1. Oh catherine. I am so sorry. Either way, murder or suicide, it’s devastating to lose a child. I know how that feels. Thank you for commenting. A lot of people thought at first there might be foul play with my son’s suicide. But he had journals that show the suffered thoughts of suicide for years. And I never knew.

  4. Bitch i thought this was a fucking how to, not a fucking thing saying “no dont do it” if i wanted help i’d google that shit. this fucking shit is misleading you dumb cunt

    1. Your anger is understandable in A moment of desperation and pain. But having been on the other side of a suicide, the suicide loss survivor, it’s worth it to try. Some don’t even know they are looking up ways to die. And people have used these posts to reach out for help.

  5. Why is this site a top hit for ‘How do I kill myself with a shotgun?’

    If I wanted help Id seek it. Its my choice to die, not yours.

    1. I am sorry you feel the way you do. I can’t help but give it a try. I rank for other pages on ways to die and some have made the decision not to kill themselves because of it. So some people are not sure they want to die.

  6. I pray they grasp the lifeline you are throwing out there. I didn’t know there is a text helpline too. Such a good idea.

  7. I love that you do this, that you don’t shrink from what desperate people are thinking. Keep throwing out that lifeline, Anne Moss. ❤️
