HOW NOT TO KILL YOURSELF A Portrait of the Suicidal Mind

by | Read by Clancy Martin

Biography & Memoir • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Clancy Martin begins with a warning about the sensitivity of his subject matter. For many, the topic's intensity and Martin's candor may require beginning the audio slowly, to allow for acclimation. He narrates his memoir about his very personal struggles with alcoholism and suicidal ideation in a calm tone that sometimes edges into unavoidable emotion. His years of alcoholism and 10 suicide attempts give him a wide range that will bring comfort to those in similar straits and understanding to those for whom the subject of suicide is taboo. Martin also weaves in the well-chosen words of others, Buddhism, his belief in the importance of family, parallels between suicide and other addictive behaviors, and details of his hard-won journey to find a way to live.
