How much life does a cigarette, stack, lane, dose, gram take

Сколько жизни отнимает сигарета, стопка, дорожка, доза, грамм

Naturally, the figures “average for the hospital” and per dose are taken from a certain average amount of consumption by a person with a lifelong dependency based on statistical data. For example, the original source states that the average daily dose of cocaine is 6.6 tracks, and alcohol is 2.14 drinks (32 ml of pure alcohol or 80 grams of vodka).

The American organization Treatment 4 Addiction counted how many years cocaine, heroin, cigarettes, alcohol, methamphetamine, and methadone take away from life. We are consolidating this important infographic for you so that you know how drugs kill us. Be sure to tell those who need it.
