Alex's Answer

Stopped because I was scared

Your Question

Hey Alex, I want to kill myself, but everytime I stop


Hey there,
First off, we want to say that we’re really glad you reached out. It takes courage to talk about how you’re feeling, especially when those feelings are so heavy. You’re not alone, and we are here to listen without judgment.
Feeling like you want to kill yourself is incredibly tough, and it’s a sign that things are really hard for you right now. It’s important to take those feelings seriously and to reach out for support, just like you’re doing now. 
Stopping because you got scared doesn’t mean you’re just seeking attention. It’s a natural response to the fear of what might happen if you go through with it. Your feelings are valid, and they deserve to be taken seriously. It’s not attention-seeking; it’s a cry for help, and that’s ok.
If you’re ever feeling unsafe at home or if you feel like you’re in immediate danger, please contact emergency services at 999 or 112. Your safety is the number one priority. 
There are also organisations like  that are there to support you. They have professionals who can help you work through what you’re feeling and find ways to cope. Additionally, you have the right to professional medical support through CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), and you can get a referral from your GP for this.
Remember, you’re never alone. The Childline team is here for you, ready to support you and explore your options with you. We’re available 24/7, so don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact us for free at 1800 66 66 66 or through Messenger on, just click the purple circle and start the chat.
Please know that your feelings are valid, and there are people who care about you and want to help you through this tough time. You’re not alone in this, and there is hope for things to get better.
Look after yourself and know that you are worthy of getting the support you need,
