Once I get to the point in life of being in either extreme chronic pain, or lack the ability to care for myself indefinitely, yes. Until that point, no.

No, I don't want to die. Science is going to solve death, and perhaps I'll get lucky. Death is another one of those natural things that bothers me

I definitely want to die someday, being around for 1000 years would be too exhausting.

I would prefer to not die, but if I end up in a "terminal" situation (unending imprisonment or chronic illness of the uncurable kind) I have no problems taking my own life.



As far as that goes, I would probably be a vampire if it would afford me immortality though.

i do gnat want to die.



on a serious note, though. i used to be afraid of death, thinking that was it. there was nothing. and having a fear of not knowing what would happen afterwards and fearing that "nothing". would everything just stop? would i end up in heaven? lots of questions. but i've been through quite a few hardships in the past 5-6 years and i've come to a point where i do not fear death. i've come to accept it and believe that when i do die, it's not going to be an end.



i found this quote not too long ago: "Buddhists see birth and death as mere concepts, not manifestations of reality. When someone dies, they are still with us, just in a different form. In this view, a continuation, a connection between people and nature persists because time is understood as being circular: nothing begins; nothing ends; it just is". so, do i want to die? i think i can finally say yes because i believe that nothing dies, it only changes form.

I hope yes before I am sitting in the nursing home peeing my pants and have sprouted goat like wiskers on my chin that no one will pluck for me.

I have been dealing with a pretty intense fear of death for the last six months (at least.) It has gotten so bad in the last week that I have had trouble getting to sleep and had to drink to be able to not be anxious. I have been considering seeing a therapist about it. I am obsessed with the idea of death, constantly thinking about and fearing my own mortality.



I know all the rational things to think and say. When I think about living forever, that is equally mind-boggling. I know that when I'm dead, I won't care. I won't know that I am dead and that there is really nothing to fear. And that the fear is pointless, because death is inevitable. Still, I am gripped by the terror and anxiety all too often.



So, to answer your question, no, I don't want to die, but I understand that death is important and even good. I certainly don't want to die any time soon, which is why I rarely ever drive on the highway anymore.

Knowing there's an ultimate exit like death can be pretty calming and reassuring sometimes.



That said, the rest of the time I'm terrified of death, I can't get my head around not existing anymore.

Sorry you're feeling that way hun I'm not far off myself right now, but maybe not quite so bad.

The prospect of not finding another job or finishing my schoolwork on time is what keeps me up at night. There's nothing worse, especially when you're 23.



I don't remember ever having been afraid of death. I think I had a martyr complex when I was around 14, I wasn't suicidal but there was nothing more heroic to me than dying for the revolution.

It can be very comforting to me. I'm just glad that other sentient beings will exist after I'm dead.

NO....but i know that eventually it will happen and I have accepted that....I am NOT afraid of it or gonna spend time worrying about it because it cant be prevented....I have worked in a funeral home for many years and I have seen death on a daily basis....and for the most part I have a calm and serene feeling about it....I have to be honest I dont want to be 100 and in severe pain and not having contol of me, my mind or my bodily functions.....I know its coming and I am okay with that just not okay with Now....I TRY to appreciate every moment I get and when its time I will have no regrets...

I nearly died about a month and a half ago and at that time I did want to die but right now I'm glad that I did live.



(I do want to die one day though, what would be the alternative!)

Do I want to die? No, not necessarily.

Do I sometimes lack the will to fight and keep going? Yes, so in a way that is a passive acceptance of death.

Yes, eventually. It's hard to wrap my mind around the idea that life will go on but I will be completely unaware of it, but I'm fully aware that my consciousness is not the center of anyone else's universe.
