To be frank, i have tried both Smoking and Alcohol... never liked either.. my body just doesnt accept it... and today i thank god for that i never became addicted to Smoking and Alcohol... there are some glaring examples in front of my eyes, in place where i live, my immediate society where people have got a great deal of harm related directly or indirectly to Smoking/Alcohol...
As far as non-veg is concerned, again its my personal choice, but since the day i saw a butcher killing a "bakra" i thought, if somebody put a knife on my neck and started killing and selling my meat, would that be fare??... sorry for hurting anybody else's opinion/emotions.. but thats the way i feel...


again, no hard feelings... just enjoy life... not necessary booze....

Chill, mate! To each his own - at least you're not the type that goes around trying to make everyone else 'good'....

BTW, I'm a converted veggie too. I drink to keep in touch with my 'spirit'ual self... and besides, alcohol is more veggie than milk.

Don't smoke or drink .. strange considering that my hostel room used to be the 'den' .. I like my ice-creams and dark chocolates
So someone can jolly well enjoy their smoke and drink .. don't consider either to be a vice ..

They say, "don't drink and drive." No one says, "don't smoke and drive."
Since cars and driving "is life", if one of the above has to go from my life, it'll be drinking.

Well , according to the little that i know, have read and understood - smoking causes more damage than drinking. so if i had to choose i would choose drinking , not smoking .

thats my take.

With all due respect .. I think this poll wasn't really a poll for which you have to wait to know what the result would be like ...!

I mean its a fact that more number of people drink than those who smoke ...and most people who smoke also drink, but its not really the case vice -versa ...

Smoking for me but I wish I could have chosen both as I normally do both at the same time.

I guess can't have them all. Hehehehehe
