The 30 Questions Challenge: 2. IndulgencePosted: June 27, 2014
2. Is it better to eat healthily all the time, or should we allow ourselves to indulge once in a while? Similarly, does this argument apply to drug use – even illegal drug use?
My answer is probably the most generic one there could be. To be healthy is to make rational choices and certainly indulging in particular guilty pleasures in moderation is perfectly acceptable. But in terms of drugs, it should depend on what type being used. Drugs like alcohol in the form of wine lowers the risk of heart disease but its benefits are again only felt in moderation. It’s just knowing what would harm you and making the sensible choice.
