We consider a nonlinear Schrödinger equation with power nonlinearity, either on a compact manifold without boundary, or on the whole space in the presence of harmonic confinement, in space dimension one and two. Up to introducing an extra superlinear damping to prevent finite time blow up, we show that the presence of a sublinear damping always leads to finite time extinction of the solution in 1D, and that the same phenomenon is present in the case of small mass initial data in 2D.
