Thank You For Not Smoking
I was driving to work last week when I glanced over at another driver who was happily sucking on a cigarette. Don’t you know smoking is bad for you? I thought as I shook my head.
I’ve never understood smoking. Those who partake claim that it’s a nervous habit and can have a calming effect. But it stinks; it’s expensive; and it makes your lungs black.
Then it hit me. How many things do I do that are bad for me? More than I care to admit.
Even though I’ve never puffed on a rolled up piece of tobacco (or any other substance, for that matter), my Starbucks frappucinos are loaded with sugar. And I don’t even want to know how much fat/grease was in the pizza I ate last night for dinner. Or what about the loaded-with-artery-filling-goodness alfredo sauce from Olive Garden that I crave?
Yeah, none of those can be good for me either. Oh, but they taste so good…
What things do you do that aren’t good for your body?
