Question about suicide...

This is going to sound REALLY bad when I first ask it, but I'm not asking this for the reason you may think.  When a person slits their wrists, what is the 'correct' way to do it, horizontal or vertical?  I am asking this because I am writing a novel based on several suicide victims and hate doing standard research on this topic.  Someone I cared about committed suicide when I was seventeen and finding websites that offer a checklist of how to commit suicide really sicken me.  So I figured I'd ask on here because the people on here people I talk to on here are pretty cool.  Again, this is not a question for me, I am NOT suicidal.  Plus, even if I was, I believe too strongly in Hell to ever commit suicide.  Thank you so much for any help you can give me.
