At what point does more life become irrelevant, if ever?

Will you cling on to the bitter end or does the idea of sitting for years in Godís waiting room fill you with dread?

Life is always the point, however, If someone is in constant pain and their health has no future prospect of improving and they aren't hurting others. I make no judgments upon their personal choice.

I couldn't be bothered with constant pain myself.....similar to Kennath Williams's last diary entry.

When I'm old and on my death bed I want to invite all the people who have p@ssed me off in life over so I can tell them what c@nts they are.

I then want my family to come in so I can tell them all how much they mean to me. I will then ask them to leave and invite half a dozen whores and strippers over to see out my final hours in fun.

Wasn't it in 'The Meaning of Life' when the guy chooses his own death.
He is chased by thousands of topless, nubile women. Worse ways to go I guess.
As for a serious response - Euthenasia becoming more common. I wouldn't want a nasty painful terminal illness to go on for years.

When your children tell you itís time to move into a home will you accede? I intend to take my own action. I see no point in marking time, slowly dwindling and adding no value.

While it's true that some situations can be too difficult ...generally I think if someone's children say that to them....then they brought them up incorrectly.

That said I agree with you. We are all on timers and it's a bit downbeat I guess it's important to treat life in its finite sense if you don't want to leave lots of loose ends.....it's surprising how many people just don't.

Something Churchill said that has always struck me was that you should live life like a sprint......I was always too lazy to properly take that in....but it's advice I'm giving to my sons.

Get s***e done while you can.

I have spent the last year tidying up other peopleís loose ends. Oh boy. So now I am on a mission to junk everything but my favourite teddy and a few photos of life like it used to be. Keep nothing you donít use and donít leave your rubbish for the coming generation. As with so many things...

Leaving politics aside, I think it's good advice.

I think inevitably people cling on. It can be sad to see, but people don't tend to give up on life unless they have no choice.

One thing I will add is that when I asked an NHS mate of mine from Asia what the big difference here compared to his country is, he said it's the way in which we treat old people. In his country multiple generations tend to live under the same roof, and he found the idea of 'putting someone into a home' rather than taking care of them yourself because they were elderly and had health problems quite repellent. Essentially, upon reflection, I think he's right.

As for when is the time to give up as an individual and how, as you say I think that's a very personal decision. For want of putting it any other way, when the pain gets too much it's probably time to go.

I thought about this the other day actually. I was about to cross the street & there was an ambulance type care van taking this woman (I'm guessing late 80s or early 90s)either to a day care centre or to hospital for a check up(I'm guessing)
When I suddenly thought to myself & I have never thought like this before, that I'd rather be dead than like that.

As gandolph said
Death is not the end. Its just the beginning of a new path.
Whos to say hes wrong.
The big man is up there waiting and his next lottery ball could be your number.
Live life dont covert it.
We all got it coming.
