" Every other smoker dies because of hir addiction.
One out of two.
It's like Russian Roulette... but with three bullets. "
-- Prof. Peter Drings, director of the Thoraxklinik Heidelberg
(where every day, on average, about one smoker dies...)

but there's quite a difference to R.Roulette:
1) a bullet in your head is far less unpleasant than dying of e.g. lung cancer
2) until the bullet enters hir head, the R.Roulette-player stays unharmed; whereas every nicotine-SUCKER harms hirself(+environment) (physically AND mentally!) with every ciggy consumed
