    But unless you are into reincarnation? You do only live once so why not spend it doing what you enjoy?

    One thing about excessive use of anything is that at some point, it stops being enjoyable and starts becoming a demon that possesses you.

    There are always exceptions, but the statistics are against the smokers and heavy drinkers.

    My dad was a smoker and died of lung cancer at age 40. He was a pretty heavy drinker as well...

    I was not talking about excessive use of anything.. I was talking about things in moderation.

    BTW, I support an adult being able to do whatever they want to in reguards to legal vices and so should you.

    That is wonderful and good for you!


    Can you please try not to demonize me for my love of smoking and drinking? If you do that? I will promise not to think you are an oddball for stressing your body to the points where it could be physically dangerous.

    1. I have no problem with moderate consumption of alcohol.
    2. I will not demonize smokers who respect the rights of non-smokers by not smoking in their presence AND do not smoke in their homes/cars if there are children there being force-fed the poison as I regard that as child abuse...

    As for stress on the body from running, remember, we EVOLVED to be endurance runners... it is only through civilization that we have devolved into couch potatoes...

    I smoke, drink, and I kick ass. This study kicks ass too. Also smoking is poison true, but no more poisonous to a child then giving them kool-aid, pop, candy, breathing in the air, watching TV, playing a videogame, etc

    I am 100% smoking bans of any kind. I wish we could still smoke in grocery stores. That would kick ass.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Second-hand smoke is more poisonous than any of those things... and it is inconsiderate people like you that requires us to have stricter laws against people like YOU!
