Ian Ford : Lost my best friend to suicide 23.5 years ago while in HS. It still hurts to this day. And what hurts the most is I'll never know why. I last saw him on Friday at study hall, and once we left for next period he said, "I'm coming over tonight". I said, "yeah right!" He retorted, "Seriously, I'm coming over!" and he smiled. I stayed up that night until 6am in our basement, watching movies on DVD and VHS (yes, this is 1994), but he never came by. But the whole night something felt off. I found out Saturday, after work around 6pm, from a mutual friend he committed suicide around 3am. I honestly believe, if he could've done it over, he wouldn't do it. But...I don't know. Just tell those who are close to you that you love them. You never know what someone is grappling with and isn't sharing.

Benjamin Franklin : It was his girlfriend, the vicious backstabbing black widow Asia Argento. He had attached his sense of worth and happiness to her. When he discovered she was screwing around with some younger guy (the two were photographed at the Cannes film festival looking like high school kids in love for the first time) it probably devastated Anthony. Lesson men: Don't ever make any woman your world, whether it's a lover, girlfriend, wife, anything. Treat them well, protect them, honor them. But understand they are there to compliment your life not become your life.

IrishBard : I started cooking because of Anthony Bourdain, in one of the old No Reservations episodes he came to Dublin and went to a seafood restaurant in a town called Howth, i told my dad about it and said it looked like a great place to eat, he said one of the guys he works with is friends with the owners son, so about a week later im at home bored and my dad came home and said basically ''you know that place you were telling me about?, i said ''yeah'', he goes ''you have an interview there tomorrow''. And i went along and that was that, i got the job in the restaurant i heard from through Anthony Bourdain, all the staff were saying how much money they had made since his visit from all of the American tourists coming over since his visit. I would even go to other places in Dublin that he visited; i got his cookbook Appetites, i watched almost all of his shows and i was watching them the day before he died. Here's to the great Anthony Bourdain.

Sonny Everywhere : Such an annoying guest constantly talking loudly through Rogan with: Woah, Ooh, Really, Yeah, Right, Hmm.... arghhh

HOTBALLZ : It’s amazing how much better you feel when you get up, walk around, eat clean, workout, and go meet people outside every day. That can literally be the thing that gives a person who’s barely hanging on a second chance to be happy again. It is only there that you will find purpose in living - not on the computer.. sitting down inside, not around people or doing things you enjoy. Get out and live ...... YOLO

WarlordRising : Bourdain felt accessible, intelligent, and wise in all the ways we wish we could. He openly discussed about battling his own demons in the same way Robin Williams did. He was more than his profession. He was an ambassador of humanity. Damn shame he couldn't slay his dragon this time. RIP to someone most of us grew up with and cherished.

Where's my money : I've never seen suicide as selfish. You didn't ask to be born so you have the right to take your life or not if you truly feel like there's no other way. Everyone has a breaking point and yes you have to consider other people but I'm not going to keep suffering just so that they won't get hurt. I used to be depressed I'm not really life should be great but it's just meaningless like what's the point. I gave myself a purpose that keeps me happy but at the end of the day what's the point.

golf-n-guns : I lost a friend to suicide after his girl left him. He was mid-40s. She was mid-20s. Older guys fall deep. RIP Anthony.

Gabriel G. : I almost lost my friend to suicide. Talking to him on the phone to stop him from trying again was one of the scariest moments in my life. He's a lot better now though thankfully.

bodhisattva99 : this is the wrong guy to have this conversation with, Joe...

Ray Her : Never let someone make You happy because they can take that away. -Patrice O'Neal


jsnification : people that don't suffer from depression don't get it at all. it gets tiring to listen to it all the time. all the people suffering with serious depression, and there are millions, are potential suicides. they just fight it. eventually you can lose the fight. it doesn't make you evil or a bad person or weak. fighting it your whole life takes more strength than anything else.

Timelapse Experimentals : Man hes just one of those people its hard to picture them actually going through with the act, i dont know why

Hearth Yoga : He was probably murdered

D Benz : All my culinary friends always had a massive respect for Mr. Bourdain. I feel like this is a similar blow like when Robin Williams passed away and how comics felt from it. Amateur and profession.

stephen trupp : lack of sleep...excessive alcohol...failed relationships...jet lag...aging...death of loved ones...oneitis...anome...just a guess...

MMA THAILAND : RIP Anthony Bourdain. Huge fan. Loved your honesty and joy for life. Sad you won't be around anymore. Peace !

Christian Terrill : people that kill them self are looking for relief the only thing that kept from doing it was my best shrink telling me you won't feel any relief in death that your looking for... I was just looking for relief of the 24/7 pain of depression and i thought death was the relief, But after hearing it made sense to me. I started using heroin to numb the pain, Thankfully it kept me from killing my self. I got a horrible addiction but it kept me alive to fight another day. 4 years clean now off that DOPE BTW!

Don Holbert : All I can see from Google search, is literally hundreds of links saying "don't be a sexist and blame asia argento for his death" Based purely on how many times that statement has been repeated and basically used to overwhelm anyone who googles Anthony's name, I'm starting to think she had a major role in his suicide, and her and the metoo movement are in damage control. I think she pushed him, pushed him too far.

Bath House Becky : I’ll never forget the work he did in Lebanon.

FlatTimes : No medication is perfect, but Joe always forgets about the millions of people that SSRIs have actually helped and suicides prevented. I know several myself.

Brandon P : No way he killed himself, check out his twitter account. Great job he loved, in love with his girlfriend, loved his daughter, loved life. He was speaking out on twitter all the time about Weinstein and Clinton. He even mentioned being harassed by Clinton's goons. It's not always black and white like the media or government portray's.

Shawn : Back when Anthony was a heroin addict he said what helped him fall a sleep at night was imagining himself jumping off his 10 story buildiing. My best guess is that his girlfriend played a major role in what happened. Everything that makes you feel good in life can and will make you feel just as bad. You really have to be cautious and cognizant of these things that bring us such happiness. Rest In Paradise Anthony Bourdain

David Lynch : His girlfriend that made him so happy, Asia Argento, cheated on him. Then he killed himself. The media is keeping it on the down-low because she's one of the big accusers of Harvey Weinstein and a hardcore feminist.

kevin Rudd : I rarely watch any of Anthony Bourdain's shows, but I thought highly of him. He seemed so real and at ease. His death shocked and saddened me a lot, just wish it were different.

Bibi Love : Lost my father to suicide when I was 5. I feel really bad for the kids. Of Anthony and Kate. Until you actually understand depression you feel like you were not enough for someone to want to stay. Just like their kids, I was the only child and a girl. I had trust issues with males, if my dad wouldn’t stay for me then why would anyone else want me. It took me until I was about 23 to understand him having experience some depression myself. RIP

Catherine McDearmon : Sorry Joe Rogan you are wrong about Chester Bennington being on alot of drugs when he died. He had only trace amount of alcohol in his system.There were 2 beer bottles found in his room, one of which was still partially full of beer. OH, AND NO DRUGS DETECTED. NONE! Yes he took tons of drugs during his life and battled depression which he was very open about.But he died clean. Check facts b/4 you speak to however many people listen to you.That should be 1st priority as you have a platform and there are even some people look up to you and believe what you say. Look up Chesters tox report. Correct yourself. You have a duty and responsibility to uphold his or any other persons dignity and character especially if theyve passed or cant speak for themselves.This is what stops people from wanting to talk to anyone. They've been lumped into a few generalized categories. They're either on some meds, antidepressants that they may NEED but now they're ALL addicts or relapsed addicts like Cornell allegedly was (bullshit his tox screen showed different) or they're not exercising enough or bc of our DNA (bullshit). Who's going to confide in anyone in a society that categorizes,stigmatizes, criticizes and comes off like it knows all? Suicide is not a one size fits all.For every celebrity suicide there are hundreds and thousands of regular men women and children that take their lives as well. They're all human. We're all human. Anyone can snap. Kids can and do snap from bullying.The kid youd never think anything like that would happen to is the one its happening to every day. We all have a long way to go to fully understand and then hopefully solve this issue. Lets try compassion and open minded listening and learning. Obviously something's wrong. Its multifaceted and complex and can take down anyone. Really cool basdass people. Bright loving people, introverted shy fragile people.People suffering illness and severe chronic pain and people who've been through alot of lifes suffering and survived alot of shit. Theres no "type" No ones immune. Throw out the lables and boxes and we might have less coffins.

Charlene Shivers : Look I didn't like Anthony Bourdain I hated his comments against our president but I will say this if you're a friend of his you owe it to him to find out what happened cuz he didn't commit suicide and I think Joe you know it funny how he comes out against Hillary and he's been pounding around with Eli musk lately supposedly his attitude was changing a little bit he was dating a witch a self-proclaimed witch Spirit cooking weird Instagram post I mean come on man how blind are people going to continue to be do you really believe that somebody who says they're happier than they've ever been killed themselves do you really believe that Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell who were two friends fighting child trafficking kill themselves because I thought it was crazy to conspiracy and all but you know what there's too much evidence that points to the fact that all these deaths were not suicide there's just too much evidence so I challenge you Joe to investigate a little bit I mean you said it yourself he was your friend so you owe it to him

Soulfulosophy : Nobody really knows anybody.

Black Phillip : A lot of people don't realize how deadly depression is. Is like a mind poison.

Donnie Blanco : R.I.P. Anthony Bourdain, Robin Williams and Hunter S. Thompson. Brilliant minds gone before their time.

Twobarpsi : There are typically three parts to his podcast. It starts off with a genuine topic, degenerates into talking about marijuana and smoking weed, then how hunting your own food is good for you.

Wilhelm Henderson : Stop saying ”yeah” baldy!

WarlordRising : Maybe Asia Argento did break his heart, but you can't blame her for his actions. He ultimately made the choice himself. However, the pictures of her mingling with another younger man in Rome almost coinciding with Bourdain's death does raise questions. No one should point fingers, though.

Braden Purcell : Anthony Bourdain was murdered.

Sarge : Been following AB since beginning of his career. Immediate thoughts were: - it's odd he left no note - authorities declared no foul play way too quickly - if it was suicide, brain-wrecking Rx drugs were involved

Gory Yogi : If you're delusional you can't really see true reality... Anthony was exposed to many life experiences and gave up...

David B : Anyone think maybe Bourdaine's girl cheated on him, he found out, and it broke his heart beyond repair?

Mjolnir Lightning : In my unprofessional opinion, I think the majority of the depression these days comes from the way we've built our society. Everything is geared towards making people feel alone, because then you can make money off people seeking happiness, when they're only buying fleeting pleasure. Everyone I know feels alone, there's zero sense of community anymore, nobody talks in person, people only talk on social media, there's no community safety net. It's extremely sad, I have dreams of changing this but there's only so much you can do when you're broke :(

cpinto23 : The basics on how to achieve happiness in life: 1. HEALTH: exercise 3-5 times a week + strict and proper nutrition with one cheat day/meal a week 2. WEALTH: try to be content in your work life and save way more than you spend...if this means living below your means, then so be it. (this is the hardest one by far and the one most people struggle with) 3. RELATIONSHIPS: Spend more time with the all the people in your life (family and friends) You must achieve a balance of all the above - it you focus too much on one thing (like spending too much time at work for example) then other things get ignored and will lead to un-happiness. Best of luck!

Truth Seeker : Rest in Peace Anthony Bourdain. I was very saddened to hear about his death. May he rest in peace.

Sephiroth : Is joe still going to be friends with alex jones after what he said about Anthony bordains death? Alex jones is a fuvked up person.

Alicia Veal : My 💖 is heavy

ZefTillDeath : The sad part about meeting someone that has made you 'happier than anyone ever', is that they can have an equal and opposite effect on you. I know this too well. 61 is probably an even more horrible time to deal with loneliness and depression. RIP Anthony Bourdain, you gave so much to the world.

Bella Bella : For those that love GREAT food....Smiling through the Tears.... remembering (CHEF) ANTHONY BOURDINE a noble BRAVE righteous man who made the world smile with his raw/straight up personality, chef Bourdine allowed many of us EXPLORED with him GLOBAL cultures and delicious LOOKING food . A TRAGIC loss R.I.P 🙏... The only credible show on CNN. A WRITER who did not leave a note !

Madeleine VL : God love him.... rip Anthony,

bdegrds : All the regular people chiming in like they have a clue. It's pretty much like this. Some people have demons in their head, some people are just tortured souls either from psychiatric issues or tramatic situation early in life, and for allot of people they just can't out run them forever and those demons eventually get off the leash. Unless your one of these unfortunate souls you can never understand.

Dom V : My best friend since high school committed suicide and it still affects me. We had a falling out towards the end of my college career and stopped speaking. He tried to make things right a few years later and sent me a friend request on Facebook, but I was still holding a grudge over what had happened and even after he apologized, I ended up deleting him shortly after. Months had passed and I saw that a mutual friend had posted something about him saying that he passed away. I felt horrible because I know if I had just let things go and forgiven him, maybe the outcome would be different. I know he needed someone since he had recently broken up with his girlfriend, but I held onto that grudge until it was too late. His death taught me to forgive those who ask for forgiveness and don't hold onto grudges, especially over trivial shit. I really wish I could've changed things.

J. H : When fullness is empty When one has everything and is still not fulfilled, there is no escape for the more only for the less, for humbleness, for depth. But this might mean, your whole life was a fata morgana, fake. Not easy to cope with cause leaving worn out grounds, means loosing orientation, not being anywhere, lost, on grounds between. An then, there is this pseudo religious overblowing of minor things, like of designe or of food and cooking, which might only feed your stomach but not your soul, how ever you might be able to sense all the flavors of a bouquet of wine or a sauce of vinagre, it's all nothing, when there is no uplifting flavor inside, inside of your mind and inside your soul.
