Almost nobody wants to talk about suicide. Some people are embarrassed by it, and some people are afraid it’ll simply make the problem worse. But the fact of the matter is…it’s a serious public health problem!

There’s even a Wikipedia page titled, “List of suicides in the 21st century.” Included in that list are Robin Williams in 2014, and Anthony Bourdain & Kate Spade in 2018.


Suicide rates increased approximately 36% between the years of 2000 and 2021. In 2021, suicide was responsible for one death every 11 minutes in the United States. The number of people who think about or attempt suicide is even higher. In 2021, an estimated 12.3 million American adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.5 million planned a suicide attempt, and 1.7 million attempted suicide. For people ages 10-14 and 20-34, suicide was the second leading cause of death!


Over the years, I’ve lost multiple friends to suicide and I even struggled with it myself for awhile. I’ve actually written three suicide notes, attempted it once, and planned it once more. It still crosses my mind occasionally…but these days, I pretty much have it under control.

I totally understand why someone would choose to commit suicide. Their life is painful and they simply want to end that pain.

Look, life is hard! We live in a society full of angry people. Many of them are selfish & hurtful & get jealous when they see us succeed.

Let me give you a scenario…
I might spend an entire day just focusing on trying to be happy…drink my coffee, go for a walk, post some photos to social media, do some stretching, read a book, eat healthy, think positive thoughts…and then, out of nowhere, I stumble upon a negative comment on one of my YouTube videos. All that hard work just went straight out the window.

At this point, it’s extremely important to know the progression of specifically how your mind works. Let me explain what I mean. I came up with this list in 2017…just a few weeks after writing my third suicide note. It’s a scale of my emotions from 0 to 10 (with 10 being the best).

10 Happy & relaxed and can ignore negativity
9 Motivated with things to look forward to
8 Fully rested
7 Confidence
6 Coming up with creative ideas
5 Thinking clearly with really good self-awareness
4 Exhausted because no time for a nap & excessive frustrations
3 Anger - work/reward ratio is too high
Quit my job, move to another city, end a relationship
2 Nothing to look forward to – everything within each day seems to go wrong
Start to lose interest in life
1 Depression – suicidal thoughts begin
0 Start planning suicide/draft a suicide note

As you can see, there’s a clear distinction between #5 and #4. One of the most important things I learned about suicidal thoughts, is that there’s a progression. If I can simply raise my self-awareness high enough to know when that progression is going in the wrong direction, I can do something about it.

I like to think of it this way…each morning, I wake up and drink two cups of coffee. At that point, I typically feel about 100%, feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. Then, as I begin my day, checking Email and dealing with society, I slowly but surely begin to get wound up. All the little annoyances and frustrations wind me up…little by little all day long. Do you remember those old Jack-in-the-Box toys? You wind them and wind them and wind them…until you reach a certain point and it just explodes open!

Using this as a metaphor…I think it’s extremely important to find a healthy way to unwind at the end of each day.

The reason for that is this…if I wake up the next morning feeling exhausted (#4 on my scale), there’s a much higher chance that I’ll begin to fall into that progression towards where my suicidal thoughts typically begin.

I used to unwind with a tall glass of white wine at the end of a long day. For whatever reason, wine recently started giving me really bad restless legs at night.

About a year ago, my friend and my doctor both recommended Kratom to me. So, I decided to give it a try. I’ve been experimenting with it for about 7 months now…and it has totally changed my life. Once you discover the proper strain and dosage, you can use it as a powerful tool to help turn your challenging days around. I’m not here to sell you on it because you really just need to experience it for yourself.

Instead, I’ll give you a quick overview and then you can do your own research. Kratom is a natural supplement, which comes from the leaves of a tree that is relative to the coffee plant. It comes in 3 different strains: white, green, and red. For me, the white is great for energy, boosting your mood, and mild euphoria. The green strain is great for reducing anxiety and improving mental clarity, while the red strain is best for pain relief and better sleep.

The next step is to find your ideal dosage. It’s best to start with a small dose and work your way up each day until you find what works best. For me, I currently take 7.2 grams of the white strain around 3 pm and 4.8 grams of the green strain around 6 pm. For me, this seems to be the perfect combination for motivation, energy, calmness, happiness, and better sleep.

Last month, I recorded two videos, which you might be interested in. I’m calling them my Kratom Success Stories. The first one is titled, “How Kratom Turned My Day Around” and the second one is titled, “Got Anxiety? How Kratom Helped Me To Unwind.” Each one is about 4.5 minutes long, but they’ll give you an idea of how beneficial Kratom might be in your life as well.

I believe in Kratom so much that I actually started selling it online. You can check out my website at

My competitive advantage is that I provide 100% Pure Indonesian Kratom, packaged in a convenient manner, at a fair price.

In conclusion, going forward…let’s talk about suicide, let’s talk about Kratom, and let’s talk about solutions.

I look forward to hearing your Kratom Success Story!
