From the link above, Olympic bobsledder Steven Holcomb once attempted suicide (he was going blind, he got better after a medical procedure) by taking 73 sleeping pills and washing them down with a bottle of Jack. He apparently slept it off (no pun intended).
My question is: How? I realize he’s not a small guy (231 lbs, from the internet), but it seems like that many pills would kill a horse, even without the whisky.
So, is Mr. Holcomb just exceptionally lucky, does he have the world’s best liver, or is 73 sleeping pills not really all that much.
Obligatory suicide reminder: If you’re having suicidal thoughts, please get help. I know people that have attempted it, and they have all regretted it. Their families regretted it more. Get help.
