Why thank you.

It is a shame, might have to start a petition to get one.
In the mean time one of these will have to do.

Actually, no-one can hold their breath past a certain point. Breathing is a reflex--one we can take control of for speech, but an automatice process at its default setting. If you hold your breath too long, your medulla oblongata says "You breath now" and that's that. So don't feel like a wimp.
It's a reaction... that you have.

But you can suffocate yourself. Or almost to death, at least... if you have, uh... how to say this... mental and psychological problems, it can override your system.

Mental and psychological problems? They may prompt you to hold your breath, but once you faint, your reflexes overide the mental control. Neurological problems might be another matter, but surely a neurological problem which effected the most basic functions of life would only exist if the rest of the brain was beyond repair.

You could say death itself is a neurological problem: your brain doesn't send the signals to your body to live!

Did realise that.

But in other circumstances, such as using sharp objects, etc. etc. the system can be overridden.

Unless you're sitting in a chair and you faint and don't fall... in which case the faint does nothing much to help you except to stop you from going any further.
