You think a Thai would know what the effects of carbon monoxide are?

LOL.

A hosepipe leading from the exhaust into a window with the motor running might arouse suspicion. What gas is produced when burning charcoal if not carbon monoxide? All you have to know is it can kill you.

Lol, the whole article just goes on to do precisely what the Mental Health Department sensibly asked media outlets not to do! The Nation's article is an appalling piece of editorial judgement. Where do they find these people?

Thailand !!

No need for a BBQ, just a bit of hosepipe connected to the exhaust and Somchai's yer uncle.

Nah, they'll think it's just an environmental friendly car owner.

Maybe it's becoming more popular because it's painless and easy.

Breathing car exhaust gases isn't all that pleasant, a charcoal fire (as long as you wait for the smoke to burn off) is ok. I'm off to buy a charcoal pot now, it will keep until i need it ......

That's a bit far fetched I think . if you think that, there must be a lot of, soft in the head ones about.

Yes. And probably increasing in number  because of the selfish  attitude of society .

 For the terminally ill and those in incurable severe chronic/acute pain that the desire to  bring an early end can  be understood. Suicide in those  situations are probably  less  traumatic in outcome similar to  natural  cause.

But suicide for  emotional cause has a  much more traumatic effect especially  involving  young people.

By emotional  cause  I mean  the  whole gambit  of emotional stress.

The  variants  involved  in  family situations , educational expectations, general social expectations, employment, financial...all of  which have an effect on the individual's induced perception of  self worth so  often influenced  by social  environment.

All of us  have  some tendency  to labile emotional highs and lows.

Sadly  if a low coincides  with an emotional crisis, as perceived  by  an individual, the thought of  suicide as  a means to escape over rides  the  instinct  for  self preservation.

So  "soft in the head" may be an accurate but temporary and  fatal description.

"Hard  Doers" may scoff  but need understand a  good  percentage  of same such are  among the statistical count.

You need a car from the 70's for that. 

Modern cars will not produce enough co2.

If somebody really wants to end his/her life, they'll find a way - charcoal or no charcoal.
