    When it comes to being a burden on others, I have to agree that it is not cowardice. This is (EDIT) NOT usually the MAIN cause of suicide, though. It's usually more egocentric.

    This being a burden on others is usually an excuse manufactured by that person asd another reason to justify his suicide. However, the most likely reason for him REALLY being a burden on others is how depressed he is and makes everyone else around him feel. It comes around full circle. Like I said, the only way to stop this cycle is to face the issues head on.

    Question Re: ~suicide~

    If the person thinking about suicide would rather die than deal with life, they don't want to face the challenges and other things that are causing them depression in their own lives. It takes a great amount of courage to face your problems head on, and some people just don't have it in them.

    Allso, the decision at the moment of suicideis more or less one of impulse and adrenaline. Like you said, emotions are fllooding everwhere in the person's mind. This makes the adrenaline go up, and makes it very easy for a person to make a rash decision. (this rule, by the way, can apply to things other than suicide) Courage is usually applied when the person is level-headed and makes a determined commitment to face what they are afraid of. Only if a suicide is performed on these grounds, will it be one of courage. (though most of the time, this is not the case)
    What about those who have no problems or challenges and simply have no apeal to live?
    Not all people who commit suicide are depressed or have problems you know.
    Its not that they have to deal with life, for some people life is just unecessary.

    Also not all people who are about to commit suicide have erratic emotions at the time of.
    In fact there are many who commit suicde calmy, due to pre-planning and preparation.
    So its not always rash, suicide can be rational.

    So having said that, is suicide still cowardly?

    Don't forget in japan suicide used to be honorable in some cases.
    Maybe still.

    Especially the kamikaze who were regarded as hero's of japan.

    (but let shift the focus bac to a more teen-suicide discussion)
    Yay-yea?

    Besides the Japaneses cultural thing, a person don't commit suicide that is happy. God, im happy and love life, hey i think ill give suicide a try. Its our natural instinct to want to survive, we just dont off ourselves under normal circumstances. It takes a severe metal break or a big bout with depression.

    im not saying a happy person will commit suicide (less likely but not impossible) but im what im saying is you dont have to be depressed or have a mental break. nothings impossible. Besides some people find hapiness in the comfort of their suicide.

    Wo/Man-kind has been able to overcome natural instinct.

    Willpower.

    Ironically willpower is a tool of suicide as it is to keep living.
    Yay-yea?

    Re: ~suicide~

    Taking your own life is the same as taking another person's life. You still hurt a lot of people...
    The main thing why it is agaisnt the law though, is simply to make people more afraid to commit suicide. In the past centuries, calling it a sin worked, but now, when religion is no longer that important, you call it a crime instead to make people just think about all the bad sides of it.
