Is the argument by my intellectual self that this is bad for me, reason enough not to do something I love?
We have become a society who’s collective religion is health. Let’s ignore the fact that during my lifetime EVERYTHING has been on the “good for you” and “bad for you” list, including cigarettes, which were considered good for you for a while. It is a self-righteous thing to see your choices as the only virtuous and reasonable choices to make.
For me personally, I’m done with the guilt. Or at least I have a personal goal to stop feeling guilty. Who is to say how we should live our lives?
Eat well, exercise, avoid alcohol and other bad habits and die anyway. So what is the point?
