Was the reason he killed himself after eating the albatross an emotional one (like it reminded him about something sad) rather than physical (like it was poisoned or something)?

Well it has to have been some association with the albatross that caused him to kill himself unless he's ridiculously unstable and he ate it so I'm going to guess the taste...
Did he associate the taste of the albatross with whatever caused him to kill himself?

Ok was he reminded of something to do with money?

If no, was he reminded of something to do with love?

Alright maybe that was too specific,
Did he eat something that tasted like albatross with someone he loved?
