Your personal thoughts on alcohol and tobacco use?

I never smoked regular cigarettes but my friends and I used to share clove cigarettes occasionally while in college. They were expensive, you just took a few hits and put it out to save the same one for later. I outgrew that thankfully after moving out of the dorms.

The drinking age was 19 when I was a teenager and we were going to dance bars every weekend from 18 on (carding was a joke back then). So I had my fair share of drinking too but outgrew getting drunk long, long ago. Having children changed my life so...

Now it's just a glass of wine with my parents, who still drink wine every night (and are in great health at 78 and 80. My dad still runs 3 miles a day).
