Some people do yoga and wheatgrass shots (I do the latter, but not the former), some people drink a little, some drink a lot, some don't drink at all. Some folks eat well, some do not. Some people smoke a lot, some people smoke in moderation (I know, the word moderation with regards to the issue of smoking goes against all of the health-ist religious dogma of late, but I don't care..) and many don't smoke at all and don't care one way or the other whether or not people smoke in a bar or restaurant that caters to a demographic of smokers and tolerant non-smokers. There are all kinds of people in this world and all have the right to live their lives as uniquely as they choose. That is how it is supposed to be in a "free" society. Indeed, the Health Mafia needs to butt out....for the sake of everyone.
