Perhaps the imprint of the euphoric state remains long after the memory of the pain is gone. To the brain it may only be a means to an end. At the end of the day, when the memory of the pain is gone, and remembers that it did not kill itself the last time it found the euphoria by invoking the CH-attack, it could be willing to try again and again, in a gambler fashion.
Perhaps the pain-avoidance centers of the brain go "off-watch" when the brain enters REM, the euphoria-seeking center seizes the opportunity and invokes the attack.
