Robin Williams Talked Suicide Before Death -- Wrist Cutting, Choking

Robin Williams once talked about how he thought about committing suicide while struggling with addiction ... and it's chilling to hear him explain how he talked himself out of it.

Williams was on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast in 2010. The 2 talk about death -- Robin had just undergone a serious heart operation -- and he launches into a monologue about a struggle he had when he seriously thought about ending his life.

One of the eeriest parts of the interview ... when he talks about cutting his wrists.  As you know Robin cut his wrist before hanging himself.  And, during the interview, he makes an oblique reference to choking.
