How do you feel when
    #2397669 - 03/03/04 10:47 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

How do you feel when a heavy smoker dies of lung cancer.

(1) What if it is someone you knew but weren't close.
(2) What if it was someone you were very close to.
(3) What if it was someone you were very close to and you repetitively warned them and tried to get them to stop.

How do you feel when you see an obese man wheeling around an oxygen tank and they are smoking?


How do you feel when an alcoholic dies of liver failure?

(1) What if it is someone you knew but weren't close.
(2) What if it was someone you were very close to.
(3) What if it was someone you were very close to and you repetitively warned them and tried to get them to stop.

How do you feel when a 500 pound man has a heart attack? He has successfully eaten himself to death.

(1) What if it is someone you knew but weren't close.
(2) What if it was someone you were very close to.
(3) What if it was someone you were very close to and you repetitively warned them and tried to get them to stop.

How do you feel when you read the news and learn that a NASCAR driver has a fatal accident?

(1) What if it is someone you knew but weren't close.
(2) What if it was someone you were very close to.
(3) What if it was someone you were very close to and you repetitively warned them and tried to get them to stop.


How do you feel when you read about a suicide?

(1) What if it is someone you knew but weren't close.
(2) What if it was someone you were very close to.
(3) What if it was someone you were very close to and you repetitively tried to get them help.


How do you feel when you read of a mountain climber who died while trying to summit mount everest?

(1) What if it is someone you knew but weren't close.
(2) What if it was someone you were very close to.
(3) What if it was someone you were very close to and you repetitively warned them and tried to get them to stop.


When someone dies of their own accord, what is the proper response? The usual cycles of grief include:

Denial
Anger
Bargaining
Depression
Acceptance

Does the same apply when someone dies of their own accord?

Q. "How do you feel when a heavy smoker dies of lung cancer?"
A. I get worried that I might die of the same thing one day, or my dad might.

Q. "How do you feel when an alcoholic dies of liver failure?"
A. I worry about my dad.

Q, "How do you feel when you read the news and learn that a NASCAR driver has a fatal accident?"
A. It makes me very sad, hearing about someone dieing in a car accedent really hits close to home, my mom died 5 years ago in a car wreck, and 2 of my friends died within the last year the same way.

Q. "How do you feel when you read about a suicide?"
A. I feel bad for them, wonder what could be so bad that they thought there way no other way out.

Q. "How do you feel when you read of a mountain climber who died while trying to summit mount everest?"
A. I feel bad for their families, think that it is sad.

The 5 cycles of greif apply to a lot of things, a break up, a death, something really bad happening to someone.

Whenever someone dies I think that it is sad, sometimes I cry if it is someone young. I have a VERY soft heart, and am very empathetic, I hate that about me sometimes.

I figure at least they died doing what they wanted to do (except for the suicide one.) Yeah, I'd still be sad, but I'm one of those people who would rather enjoy a shorter life of smoking & drinking than live 90 years of denying myself my simple pleasures.

I've probably taken at least 20 years off my life expectancy with the things I do, but I look at it as a tradeoff, like most decisions in life. Everything has consequences, it's just a matter of whether it's worth it to the individual.

I saw a quote once as a kid that stuck with me - "I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees."

Did not know anyone close. I remember my dad, how much he smoked, but that he died cause the cigarrette probably caught his house on fire. I remember those strange things in life, how weird life can be, how unexpected the choices we make turn against us.

I remember my dad. How it tore my family apart. HOw it ruined his life, and ultimately led him to not be able to escape the fire. I remember once again how strange life can be. I feel the pain of a distorted childhood, but not cause he was sick, but because he wasnt there.

I remember someone i didnt know all too well, once again i dont feel to sad. They had grown old, and they could not change their ways. Remember the former, i would have to say that i dont feel too much, but that their presence can no longer grace the ones they loved, or those that had loved them.

Quote:

I feel hopelessness. I remember those two former things, i remember the own depression in my own life. I can see why some people go.

all of these people died of their own accord. They died none the less, the ones they loved can no longer see them. Whether it was understood by the individual who killed themself or not, their family wont understand. Usuaully those things would follow suit. Although for me, i dont know if i went through all of them. but im sure i did.

These are confusing questions for me.

I always feel compassion for those who die and those who survive them.

1. I would be upset and angry.
2. I would think that they were dumb. I would be sad.
3. I would grieve the loss and be angry that they couldn't stop. How could cigarretes be so important?

1. I would be upset that they died. I would be upset that alcohol is legal.
2. I can't really imagine how I would feel.
3. I can't really imagine how I would feel.

I would be upset that they died and that they couldn't break their deadly habit.

The farther away from them I was, the dumber I would think they were.
