Is It Really That Bad?

What's your vice? We all have something... smoking, obscene amounts of coffee, tanning. But, how bad is it really? Check out this article from MSN.com, How bad are your health vices?

I'm actually pretty good at not doing the 'unhealthy' things. If I have a health vice - it's coffee. But I don't abuse it, I enjoy one cup of black coffee a day... maybe two on a rough day or on a weekend morning (curled up with a good book and my dog). But even two cups of coffee a day is not enough to send you into the 'dangerous abuser' category! Black coffee has great health benefits too, it's been linked to lower risk for diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and colon cancer. It can also lift your mood and treat headaches! We all know caffeine is a great headache-buster!

So, what's your vice? How bad is it really?


  1. T.V. - It's the first thing that I want to turn on when I get home. I like to have it playing in the background when Im not particularly watching what's on. I get sucked into shows, so I start to DVR them . . then I want to watch episodes over and over again until the new ones are aired.

  2. So true! Sometimes I think the DVR gets me to watch MORE TV than I used to!
