Alcohol 

I've recently discovered mezcal margaritas; smokey, citrus-ey, a little sweet.

oh no 🍸

@rho Did you know that 5% of all cancer related deaths are caused by what's considerd to be a healthy consumption of alcohol? :)

@hund I did not, but I think I'm okay with it. 😅

@rho @hund

I remember my Doc saying that 1 in 5 who smokes cigarettes will get addicted to it in India.

I smoke cigarettes and I'm okay with it too. Sometimes we gotta go with what works for us. 🙃

Besides, cancer caused by alcohol is the first time I'm hearing in my life! 🤔

@mysticmode @rho Smoking is addictive and *everyone* who smokes gets addicted to it. It's also disrespectful to those around you as they get equally affected by passive smoking.

And there's a strong scientific consensus that alcohol drinking can cause several types of cancer, you can read about it here:

There's also a BBC documentary called The truth about alcohol that's educational.

@hund @rho

I agree with that! Though saying disrespectful is quite harsh :)

It is as if you get addicted to your healthy routine. I've seen people who go to the extreme of keeping their spartan like routine.

Opinions differ and people are different.

What I wanted in my life is to keep a balance. It's like walking in the middle path and try to keep ourselves detached from certain things. I can quit smoking if I practice and successfully do that.

@mysticmode @rho Well. It might sound harsh, but it's the truth.

I'm no saint and I'm not addicted to fitness and health, I wish I was though, but I do eat healthy and I do workout regularly. It's something I can recommend everyone trying out, it's not only good for your body, it makes wonders for your mental health as well.
