A because alcohol and ganja are ace.



Plus, studies by top dentists show that dying young is glamorous.

A - what's the point in living if you aren't going to live it.

I voted B, since I'm pretty much living that way already. My life is kind of simple and quiet at times, but it is satisfying. I enjoy it. I don't need to seek out big thrills and wild times.

B - Sounds pretty much like what I have been/am/will continue doing and it's working just fine. I experience plenty of fun and "good things" that have nothing to do with substance addiction

Well it stands to reason that if I live a mostly safe life and don't smoke and drink then I'll live to 80 ANYWAY.....lol.

But nonetheless......the answer for me is B. I hope to have all my original parts buried with me and, G-d willing, I hope to die after having gone into the Guinness book of records as the oldest, healthiest woman on earth.

I dont smoke or drink alcohol or coffee and I don't feel like I'm missing out on something...

Would like to try something thrilling like
skydiving one day... But I would probably take an extra parachute with me.

B is my choice, but I live how I want, do what I want, live each day to its fullest and without addictions too. I am not afraid of death and I have no regrets.

What's the point of this poll?

I voted A, but I live a life that's somewhat in between A and B. I'm like A.5 .

I have been on both sides of this fence...

my personal view is that addictive behavior as a way to live life fully is a cheap substitute for the real thing...and no it ain't "better than the real thing."

Being fair, I know that not all dangerous behavior is not necessarily addictive. I believe in taking risks that empower you as opposed to taking risks that fuck you up in the long run.

My vote is somewhere in between.

I'm willing to bet if this Poll included a C. Somewhere in between A and B that it would be the more popular vote!
