Smoke Not.                                                         
                    Drink Little.                                                        
The making of wine predates the making of pottery to pour it into. A glass of wine once in a while will not kill you. It may even be good for you. A beer has been known to arrest false labor, and cheer up the mother-to-be. A binge, however, can kill even a young and healthy individual. The toxic affects of indiscriminate alcohol use (or any other substance abuse) can be cumulative over time and destroy vital organs for which there are no substitutes, such as the liver or the pancreas. Moderation is the best counsel, but it can be a relative term. It has been said that physicians define excessive drinking as drinking more than the doctor. If your doctor has more than a drink or two once in a while, and you drink more than your doctor, then you should reduce you alcohol consumption AND find a different doctor.

                                        Eat Less.                                                             
                                                            Walk More.                                                        
                                                                                Sleep Well.                                                         
                                                                                                    Be Careful.                                                         
                                                                                                                        Pray Hard.
