Suicides among smokers are more likely than among non-smokers, says an article published in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research.

Recent studies have shown that people with unstable mentality and mental disorders are often also smokers. Therefore, scientists believe that if we reduce the sale of tobacco or raise taxes, the number of suicides will be reduced.

They made this conclusion after analyzing the tobacco prices and the number of suicides. Scientists believe that an increase in cigarette prices at the level of one dollar will reduce suicides by 10%.

Despite the fact that studies have been conducted in the U.S., researchers believe that a similar pattern is observed in many countries.
