SOme of my co-workers can't believe I used to smoke and they think it's disgusting and were glad I quit and yet they go drinking every weekend.
I've done my fair share of drinking and partying but as a prime example, drinking is still no better if not worse for some people considering smoking can eventually kill you while getting wasted can lead to a myriad of situations that can involve violence, deaths or general choices you'll end up regretting the enxt day, weeks or months, sometime even years and then of course there are those that drink too much and fuck up their livers which hosptials aren't always in massive supply of and like those that smoke a lot, they aren't so keen and supportive of those that do much of either as they know they are likely to do the same again.
You may as well feel sorry for anyone who consumes too much of any given thing as too much of anything has proven to do us harm in various ways, take chocolate for instance, it tastes nice just like how a cigarette would to a smoker but over the months to years, the more chocolate that a person consumes is fsn't really good for them either, especially for those who become overweight which again isn't a good thing to look at along with how it messes with the person's psyche and the people around them.
For me I am probably one of the few that hardly has much of an addiction to both alcohol and smokes, I did my fair share of partying and drinking back when I was 17-21 but after that I just toned things down to a point where I now only drink when it's Christmas, Boxing and New years day or a wedding of sorts, maybe even a Birthday, with smoking I dropped it because I knew I couldn't go on forever smoking as I would and I know it's bad for you but I also know practically everything else on this planet in certain doses is just as bad.
Trust me, I feel sorry for alcoholics and those that are very overweight as well.
