What are some good ways of resisting the temptation to hurt or destroy oneself?

This is a different angle on the 'to be or not to be' question. People are asking how to kill themselves. Let's look at how to survive.

Make a lot of enemies. You'll learn to preserve yourself out of spite.

Calculate the fiscal costs of not only "repairs" to yourself but the time lost from work because you decided to harm yourself.

In reality, whether you want to or not, you just can't fucking afford that shit.

[@777164,xixgun] It would be hugely bothersome indeed.

[@658702,purplepen] Exactly. Now, all that money you DON'T spend on fixing yourself, you can use on [b][i][u]shoes[/u][/i][/b]. Don't you feel happier now?

[@664411,pentacorn] Yes that might work for some. You'd get lots of endorphins. Not so good for anorexic people though.

[@1028747,ClanNaFiacaillApWythe] No. I'm not suicidal. But I'm concerned because a lot of people are.
