Is there actually any 'Painless' ways to die?

So, Is there actually any way of death that involves no pain? Or is all death painful? If there is a painless way, What is it?

Just curious is all.

  • I will share a little experience with you. Obviously, I am not dead, but I was supposed to be at one point. I had gotten in a bad car accident and no one suspected I would survive it. During that night, the first things i remember when waking up here and there was peace. I felt no pain and I didn't really care what was going on. One time during that I felt pain, oddly enough, when the pain meds were in me I could feel the pain because I was intolerant to the medication, when they got all pain meds out of my system, I felt no pain again. The moment I was supposed to die, I woke up briefly though. The heart monitor was inconsistent, I was bleeding profusely from the head, my eye was out of its socket, my brain exposed, my skull shattered, body mangled, and I felt no pain other than the look on my mother's face emotionally hurt me. Three days later, I woke up in extreme pain and they told me I would probably survive. Dying didn't hurt at all, it was very calming. Fighting back to life was the most painful thing I could ever imagine. I hope for everyone, when their time comes, it was as peaceful as it was for me.

    • Oh man, I wish i could be as so fortunate.
      So, Perhaps a high speed car collision would be a good, painless death?

    • I mean, I wouldn't endanger anyone else, Like, i would do it somewhere noone was, Perhaps off a small cliffside or something, I would never want to harm anyone else in the process.

    • I think you might want to contact a suicide hotline..

  • Well, there was a rare case this young traveller from Australia died after being confronted with a few thugs at knife point. They didn't touch him but he died of shock as he overproduced too much adrenaline from being put in life threatening situation. R. i. p.

    • Oh shit, I doubt thats something which can be recreated tho?

    • Someone is suicidal ehhhh

    • No. I am just curious as to the ways in which a person can die.

  • If you're asleep, and your body suddenly "shuts down.." hmmm you'd prob still know. I don't know then XD if you were on life support and then taken off of it, you wouldn't feel it.
    I hope this is simply for curiosity...

    • Im just curious, I was thinking about, like, all the main ways a person could die, and they all seemed rather painful, so. i was wondering if there was any method that didn't hurt ya know? Or perhaps one that didn't hurt as much as the others.

    • Shut up, boy! 😒😒😒 You're so young, you shouldn't even be thinking about this! I know life gets difficult sometimes. Tough times will pass... So, just stop :/

  • I haven't heard of any since in my little knowledge I haven't known a experimental study where people try ways to kill theirselves and rise from the dead to prove that there is really a painless way to die. 🙈

    • No, I tried that a couple years ago, Easily the worst pain i have ever experienced in my life. It felt like my stomach was on fire.

    • oh then anything instantly

  • Lethal injection I would imagine.

    • Mhmm, Fair enough. I would imagine they are nearly impossible to get your hands on, but yeah, good point.

    • No, lethal injection can go wrong and it becomes very painful if it does

    • Lethal injection generally isn't quick and peaceful. You feel your organs shut down and I believe it even puts you into cardiac arrest.

  • Passing away in your sleep is the only way I know of to die painlessly. Every other way - overdose, fatal car crash, hanging, shooting, cutting wrists, drowning - result in you either bleeding out or feeling your body's organs shut down.

    Actually, dying on the table during surgery would likely be painless as you'd be under anaesthesia but your organs would shut down anyways...

      Its not as easy as just making friends really, I mean... I've never had one before, so i wouldn't even know what do or say let alone how to find one.
      Is there a good way to make friends or something? sorry if this sounds stupid as fuck, but yeah. I've never had to do it before :/.

    • That's okay, everyone needs help making friends at one point or another. I think the best way is to smile at people at work or at the library or on the bus or just standing in line somewhere and see who smiles back. If they do, you can compliment them on (or ask them about) something they're wearing/reading/drinking/eating/doing - the key is to get them to talk about themselves first. That way, if they say something you agree with, like how they hate work, you can be like, "I know, mate - work sucks. My job's rubbish too. So what's your name?"

      It can be difficult to find someone like that in person if you don't get out much, but I bet you could find a GAG user who has similar issues and interests to you. Post a question asking who else out there is depressed/fed up with their life and wants to talk about it with a new friend and see what kind of responses you get.

  • There is a painless method of suicide but obviously I can't tell you about it because I'd have to delete my own post afterwards, being a mod ;-). As for natural death... I'd say dying in your sleep is pretty painless. That's at least how I wanna die one day.

    • Oh wow.

      What sort of things can cause or trigger a stroke? Like is it something a human being could self induce? or is it just something that happens?

    • I guess you could self-induce it on a long term scale but it's not something you could use to commit suicide. A stroke (or apoplexy as it is called in medical terms) is something that mainly happens to elderly people, though it can, as I told you, also happen to 40 or even 30 year olds. The causes of a stroke all related to an unhealthy lifestyle. The most dangerous thing is a high blood pressure. Having a decent blood pressure (not too high) alone will reduce your risk of a stroke by 60-65%. Furthermore, smoking, high blood sugar, overweight, lack of physical activity, overconsumption of alcohol over several decades, high cholesterol etc. are all factors that can lead to a stroke. But it's also partially a genetic thing. If you're grandparents and parents suffered strokes (not all strokes kill you, there are also weak ones that may or may not have any negative consequences), it likely that you will suffer one too.

  • Anything that is very very quick or where you are unconscious should be painless. For example, shotgun to the head and lethal injections, respectively.

      Though, I do appreciate talking to you, it means a lot to have someone with such life experience tell me about that stuff. thank you.
