Billy Corgan speaks out against suicide

Billy Corgan speaks out against suicide
After a string of musicians have committed suicide, Billy Corgan has spoken about his own battles and why killing yourself is not the answer. Speaking to Howard Stern he said:
“I didn’t know what to do, anybody who has experienced this I’m totally empathetic, I was having massive panic attacks…I would be in the shower, and my heart would start racing, and I was like, I’m losing my mind. Now I understand. It’s the worst.”
This transcript is from Alternative Nation, and the Smashing Pumpkins man went on: “As somebody who has stood right on the edge of taking my own life, I am not only firmly against it, I would say that it is never worth it.”
“To me it is a spiritual question. This is my version. You are saying to God, ‘I don’t accept my circumstance, and I’m going to stop this game’. The secondary part of that is you are saying, ‘I can’t imagine a tomorrow where there will be laughter or happiness.’ That is unfathomable to me now, and that’s what keeps me going. I think of my son. I think about how I could sell everything and move to an island… You do what you got to do to get through, but under no circumstances, I would say maybe the only asterisk is if there is a health issue, but that’s a totally separate question, but if you are healthy in head and heart, I can’t imagine a circumstance where you would take your own life.”
“Anybody in our business who has I really grieve for them and their families, because God gave them so much, and we lose so much when we lose those people.”
