It’s never one time – for anything. If there is a bad habit out there – I like to do it until the point of intervention. The way I see it – life is too long not to have some bad habits. I’ll gamble when I have money to lose.
Anyway, now I am in the Bay Area. I lived here when I was a teenager. The only thing that does is make me constantly look to run into the guys that wouldn’t talk to me in HS. “Yeah, remember how you ignored me junior year because I was weird? Well, I’m still weird – and now you’re FAT!!!”
