How to Kill Yourself With a Suicide Kit

UPDATE: The Oregon State House of Representatives today voted to outlaw the selling or purchase of so-called "suicide kits" like those available through the GLADD Group.

Oregonians with an unshakable desire to end their lives are therefore encouraged to seek out more traditional methods of suicide.

The Oregon state legislature has just advanced a bill that would make it illegal to "sell or transfer any substance or object to another person with the intent that the other person use the substance or object to commit suicide." The bill is a direct response to the death of Nick Klonoski, a 29-year-old Eugene man who ordered a "suicide kit" from a Southern California company called the GLADD Group, which for $60 will send you a simple kit with almost everything you need to kick the bucket. So how's it work?

According to Derek Humphry, the author of Final Exit and several other books on assisted suicide, as well as the past president of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies, the process is fairly simple.

Of course, no one should ever kill himself. It's an awful thing to do to one's family and loved ones. But if someone has his mind made up and no one can talk him out of it, here is the CliffsNotes process, according to Humphry.

First you need to mail a $60 check to:

GLADD Group

3755 Avocado Blvd #166

La Mesa CA 91941

Soon you'll get this:

Next, you will need some helium. Mr. Humphry recommends the stuff from Amazon.com.

Ah, here we are.

Humphry also goes into detail about the specifications needed--though really, it seems like a process that'd be difficult to screw up.

Ideally, TWO tanks either for 30 or 50 party balloons are needed. The GLADD kits are made for use with two tanks. (Actually, simply 4-5 good gulps of pure helium are lethal--the 2nd tank is in case one happens to be empty.)

The tanks can be purchased from a toy store or a party store. Ask not for 'helium' but for a 'party balloon kit' (each of which contains one tank of helium). The same tanks are also advertised for sale on the internet by Amazon.com, Target, and at Party America. Put 'party balloon kits' into Google Search Box. (But much cheaper in toy stores, where you can use cash.) Nitrogen works just as lethally as helium if that is available.

Now that you've got your plastic hood, your tubing, and your helium (or nitrogen "if that is available"), it's a simple process of fitting the bag over your head, attaching the tubing to the gas, and slipping the other end of the tube into the hood and opening the valve.

Like so.
