Well, In the minds of the health puritans, I am.
I smoke 40 a day
I drink well over the “recommended limits”. (And I mean well over).
I like plenty of salt on my food.
I don’t go for long walks. (The thought of such a boring pastime makes me shiver).
I eat what I want.
So now you would expect by righteous definitions, I’m a menace to the future of the NHS, due to my non PC lifestyle.
Well the truth is that I’ve been almost no drain on the state. In my working life (43 years), I would say that I’ve had at the most, seven days of sick leave.
If you were to believe the likes of the so called charities such as ASH, Alcohol concern, the Obesity forum, and all the other rent seeking groups, I should have been dead years ago.
Sorry chums. I’m living proof that your propaganda is flawed.
My advice to the up and coming generation is enjoy life to the full. It’s the only one you’ll have. Go out, get drunk in the smoking shelter, then stagger home clutching a big mac, and enjoy yourself.
At the moment I’m actually a drain on the NHS as I’ve been diagnosed with a peptic ulcer. However that’s not my fault. I blame the commenters on this blog for putting me in the worrying position of trying to answer their absolutely brilliant comments, I fail dismally.
It’s your fault.
But, Hey, keep them coming.
