    Fixed that, I'd say.
    Most people just complain.

    The fact no drugs or alcohol were involved means she didn't do this while withdrawing from or under the influence of a substance that she might not have done when sober. She had thought about and planned this for a long time while thinking very clearly about her situation. In this case suicide "prevention" is useless. RIP.

    The inquest heard Archer had a blood alcohol level slightly over the drunk-driving limit as well as some traces of medication in her blood.
    But the post-mortem examination suggested alcohol and drugs did not play a part in her death.
    hmmm how could it not have played a factor ?

    I think a lot of us tend to view suicide as an irrational act, one often precipitated by despair, depression, hopelessness, etc.
    No doubt that is the case in many instances; but in some; people have rationally, repeatedly, considered whatever is going on with their lives and made a choice that isn't based upon spontaneous emotions or something negative that might change or get better in time.

    I'm all for intervention and second thoughts, I wouldn't encourage someone to "just do it"; if only because that solution is going to come along of it's own accord eventually.
    I think it's sad; and in the case of someone with children or elderly parents, maybe it could be called selfish; but I kind of think that people have a right to end their own lives.

    I do think they should be mindful of the trauma that it will cause to those remaining, and maybe try to do things in such as way as to minimize the shock and trauma as much as possible.

    Thank You, for putting it into the right words I could never say.
