Hi Amarthereus,

Yes, it is an attempt.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gives this definition:

“A suicide attempt is when someone harms themselves with the intent to end their life, but they do not die as a result of their actions.”

This is in contrast to a completed suicide.

If you need to talk, please reach out to someone on here or your family and friends. You may also want to call a depression hotline, hospital or emergency if you ever get the urge to self-harm. I'm not sure where you are, but Google will provide you with a lot of information on suicide and where you can reach out for help.

Please take care of yourself. There are ALWAYS other options to suicide. And please talk to someone, even if you don't have the urge to self-harm. Don't leave it too late.

I will keep you in my thoughts and my prayers, Amarthereus.
Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.—Psalm 34:18
