Joel Blackwell

How did you research ways to gently kill someone you love?

John I did a lot of googling, but I was not just looking for a gentle way, but a way that supposedly left no trace. Drugs leave a footprint, but breathing in nitrogen does not.

I was shocked how many sources for this kind of information there were.

In the process of researching, I also stumbled upon a discussion forum of mostly young people asking each other about the least painful way to commit suicide. It was depressing to see these poor souls so much in pain that they were seeking a way out, but I was heartened, sort of, by the fact that there are few easy ways.
