Return to "Smoking and Drinking" essay


(R) In the words of one of my professors: "Let's face it: Life's a bitch, and then you die. Oh, well, might as well have fun dyin' " Basically, some people can't handle life. You seem to be one of the people who can. There may be a direct correlation between how much life one can handle and how much one drinks. Hmmmmmmmmmm.
(MB) I would tend to agree with that assessment. Consider the reasons that many people offer in support of why they smoke or drink. Relieving stress or other emotional problems generally tops the list. Certainly, one doesn't see too many well-adjusted, laid-back, and comfortably successful people who abuse tobacco and/or alcohol.
