Suicide

If you are a smoker you have much higher risk of developing serious illness, cancers and organ failures and you are more likely to die younger than a person who doesn't smoke. Scientists claim the average smoker will lose 14 years of their life due to smoking. Thirty percent of the American population is smokers. In other countries, especially developing countries, this percentage is much higher. While most people are aware of the damage that smoking does to their body, few are aware of the effects that smoking has on the environment.
