So a friend of mine killed himself...

I know it sucks. Do your mourning, be there for his family and other friends of his, if you can/feel up to it. As stated, don't let it consume you. Talking to others, especially others that are going through this with you, should help with the subconscious thoughts (since you'd be consciously thinking and airing it out), and thus, the nightmares. If it doesn't, definitely talk to a professional or somebody separate from the death of your friend who can just listen and be there.

Hang in there, bud.

Often times that funny lovable exterior is just a way to cope and cover up what's inside

Sorry for your loss of a friend

Actually, this echos the exact thing I was going ot mention. Sometimes the "always happy" folks are covering some stuff that they just can't deal with. Could explain the constant partying also. Hate it for you and the rest of his friends.

So sorry to hear this James. Anytime some takes their own life it is a tragedy, not only for them, but for the people they left behind. It is something that haunts those who cared about the person forever.

Burning....have to believe that was under the influence of something. I still would wonder about an accident.

I am very sorry for the loss of your friend. I agree with others, hope you have someone to talk to.

It's always tough when someone you're close to passes, esp if its unexpected and even moreso for a suicide.

My business partner passed last year and it took me months to process the fact that he just wasn't there anymore.

You have my condolences, I know its not easy.

If death is weighing on you, definitely find someone to talk to.

Bath salts are a helluva drug

btw...suicide is a permanent solution to (most times) a temporary problem.

Really helpful thanks :rolleyes:

Yeah clearly he was more disturbed than what he projected on the outside.

Still bothers me though that he had none of the supposed "warning signs"
