People are going to do a

People are going to do a cost-benefit on the value of their life vs whatever the other option is.

Examples: trading off fast food, cigarettes, drugs, playing professional football, doing stunts, working in a dangerous field, driving 120mph for the thrill, whatever. It's current enjoyment / higher pay vs. living a longer life.

Euthanasia is just taking this one degree further: a personal belief that they would get more utility from ending their life now than suffering any longer.
