- We're all the same
At 18 (or 21 in some states), you have the right or freedom to drink alcohol and smoke legally. But, both of these so-called freedoms can quickly lead to enslavement: first thru habit/addiction and then later thru its multi-level impact on your lifestyle (cost, time, health). So, while you may be FREE TO DRINK OR SMOKE, you are not quite so FREE TO LIVE a full and healthy life.
At any age, but especially once you have left home and are supporting yourself, you have the freedom to eat as much as you want and exercise as little as you want. Again, these so-called freedoms are not cause for celebration.
Abuse of many "freedoms" leads to a greater loss of freedom thru ill health, loss of energy, and vitality. Moreover, often relationships are damaged or broken.
