    how to get the file not to shud down right away

    I've got a problem. Unless I add a line of text to pause( wich doesn't even always work) My program always immediately shuds down after it's done what it's got to do, leaving me no time to read it or even in some cases to type something in. How can I change this?

    Maybe add a cin.get(); statement or two at the end of the program?

    On another subject could you help me scoop the bugs out of this code?
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    int answer;
    {
     cout<<"You are sitting in your seat comfortably and looking through the airplane window. You know you're going to enjoy your vacation greatly. Suddenly the stewardess comes in and asks: 'Does anyone here know how to defuse a bomb?' Wich of the following answers do you choose?"<<endl;
     cout<<"2.Yes"<<endl;
     cout<<"1.No"<<endl;
     cin>>answer;
    {
     if (answer==1)
     {
      cout<<"Nobody answers and soon terror starts to spread trough amongst the passagers. GAME OVER"<<endl; 
      for(int x=1000;x>0;x--)
      {
       cout<<x<<endl;
      }
      cout<<"BAM CRASH BURN DEATH HORROR";
      return 0;
     }
    }
    Btw, I know I haven't added the code for if its chioce yes but I want to get the bugs out of this first
