No!: The most common reason for people to try to end their lives is depression, a treatable condition. Another is chronic pain, also treatable. Finally, there is terminal illness, when people decide to end their lives before their quality of life deteriorates too far. If you're depressed, i urge you to get treatment. Life seems hopeless when you're depressed, but that can change very quickly.
