What they miss is that a number 19 is relatively efficient and quick ....... it doesn't involve years of visits as an out-patient and then a lingering death, in hospital, being visited by family who end up wishing you'd just die
I've never understand what it is they are trying to say when they bring that one up.
It makes no sense whatsoever.
They don't seem to get the idea that there are x number of things that could kill you, thus you have y% chance of dying every day - which leads to an expected age of death of z.
By smoking, you always reduce the value of z.
