Talking Which out of these 2 would you choose ?

Both are considered as vices (not my opinion ) hehe. So given a choice - which would you take along with you and which would you drop by the wayside in your journey of life ?

I know its a tough decision - but still ..

Shall we ?

Even cannot vote for anything here... no smoking, no drinking, no non-veg for me... thats because i follow the rules of Ashtang Yog:
"yam-niyam-aasan-pranayam-pratayahar-dhyan-dharna-samadhi"

Why bring non-veg into it? Is it a 3-way poll?

i would take drinking though i dont advice both(i am a doctor after all!!)smoking doesnt at all benefit anyone.there are reports to suggest that small quantities of alcohol are good for the heart but it is still highly controversial.as far as i am concerned,i think social drinking is alright(which is what i do!!)

You missed two more options. 'Want to die as early as possible' and 'Not applicable to me'. I choose 4th options

I have never smoked and never will.
I drink alcohol for the pleasure, not to "gam bhulane ke liiye" etc but to enjoy a bit.
Neither am I addicted to it nor do I drink regularly, but I pick drinking here..

btw like Steeroid, I do not consider the drinking (that I do atleast) as a vice.

To do that in its fullest sense, you have to experience everything and give up what you cant gel with/dont like. Even our ancient texts dont recommend renunciation and abstinance throughout your life - you cant appreciate light if you havent experienced what darkness is (I'm NOT insinuating that drinking/smoking = darkness - those of you who are offended please read vice-versa).
