    What the hell am I supposed to say?! He keeps talking about it, I'm on the phone right now to him. He's hysterical, probably drunk and I'm so stuck.

    Would you want to die with all these wonderful things here on Earth. think about it! You have so many friends and all of that. Please Don't. I'm your best friend and You have other friends and family that love you so much.

    EDIT: But seriously, he has to have a good reason. And does he know if he kills himself, he will spend and eternity IN HELL?!?

    I'm his only friend. I don't think calling him a retard will help. I'm so lost... No idea what to say to him.

    He doesn't want to live anymore, basically. Normally when he talks about it I can help him by making him think about what he has to live for. Now, rationality is out of the window. I'm scared he'll do it.

    Hey man, I'm just going so I can't offer much...I don't know how much this might help you personally, but people who say they will, don't usually do it. That's what I get told anyway. But try and tell him what he has to live for, offer him the good things he has, such as yourself and anything you can think of. The longer you keep him on the phone the better, just keep talking to him, about anything! Hope he's okay bud.

    EDIT: Sorry just saw your post. Just keep trying to talk to him. You got to think of anything to talk about, make him think he has things to live for. I know it sounds hard but you got to give it a shot. If you have to make him feel guilty, like what it'll do to you and anybody else in his life.

    Thanks heaps Lewi, I'll do my best. It's hard now because he's in hysterics. He's barely listening to me. It's basically me listening to him talk about it... I'll do my best :\.

    Sorry PrinceLink, we posted at the same time. Yeah I'll try and guilt him out of it. I don't know... he's just not in the right frame of mind at the moment.

    Why the hell did his parents leave their troubled kid at home alone with alcohol?!

    Tell his parents immediatly, he need help. It;s the best thing to do whether he'll hate you for it or not

    I would if I could. I don't have their mobile numbers, and they're not at home. He keeps hanging up, then he'll call two minutes later. I'm so afraid that the next call won't come...

    i know this isnt very comforting but more than 90% of the time people who tell others theyre going to kill themselves really dont do it, and its more of an act for attention... (im a proven part of this statistic..)

    You should drive yourself down to wherever he is and hang with him. Make him feel how loved he is by his friends and family. That could turn him around.

    You could call the police if you really think it's that serious, or if you can drive head on over
