This is part of the character's back story.
I have a character who at this point in time is a severely depressed alcoholic who can see thoughts. The reason he drinks is because if he gets drunk enough he can no longer see thoughts. He goes on an epic bender for a week, and wakes up in the ICU with no memory of how he got there. He is told that he attempted suicide and has barely survived. He was staying at a crummy motel at the time of the bender and the maid found him and called 911.
My problem is what method of suicide should he have botched? I have no idea about these things.
