  • Maybe it would be better considered Russian Roulette. Some people have issues and somet people don't

  • maybe not intentionally, but it is taking a very high risk of killing yourself and others around you eventually.....i smoked for 13yrs and quite when i got preg with my first son. That was 6yrs ago and never picked up another smoke again. My best friends dad died of lung cancer and never smoked a cig in his life...but his wife was a chain smoker.

  • Nope. Suicide requires an act with the intent to end your own life. Smoking, among just about everything else, CAN lead to death, but just because you smoke doesn't mean it will kill you or even cause any real health issues... So no, it's not suicide.

  • I say yes. there is no benefit what so ever... all it does is hurt you in the long run.
    there are so many things out there that can harm you just by leaving the house.
    Why would anyone want to increase that chance???

  • If that's the case then many of the things people do would be considered suicide. Even BBQ'ing could kill you. Carcinogens are everywhere.

  • Going to have to agree with sabrina on this one... Suicide is an intentional act carried out with the express intent of ending your own existence. Smoking does not qualify.

  • No one smokes a cigarette and thinks, "I hope this kills me," so I'm going to say no. If we are going to use this logic then McDonalds is suicide, fried foods, ect......

  • Probably depends on what they're smoking.
