I've been living and working in Hong Kong since 2016 as an SEO Professional.

In Hong Kong, burning charcoal is the second most common method of suicide. In 2015, there were 1,092 incidents of charcoal suicide, accounting for 18.4% of all suicides in Hong Kong. The number of charcoal suicides has risen in recent years, from 868 in 2014 to 1,092 in 2015.The high rate of charcoal suicides in Hong Kong is most likely related to a combination of circumstances. For starters, charcoal is widely available and reasonably priced. Second, burning charcoal emits carbon monoxide, which is a highly effective suicide method. Third, charcoal suicides are frequently perceived as less painful and more respectable than other ways of suicide, such as hanging or jumping from a great height.The rise of charcoal suicides in Hong Kong is concerning. Charcoal suicide is a preventable fatality, and it is critical to raise awareness about the dangers of burning charcoal in a confined space. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please get professional help.
