I was combing the latest women’s news and came across this article Just How Bad are Your Health Vices? on msnbc. It got me thinking about some of the bad stuff I did when I was younger. The article points out some of the various vices/habits we may have had as teens or young adults and how those could affect us later in life.
I Was a Smoker
When I was the ripe old age of 13, I was introduced to the world of peer pressure. Along with that came smoking cigarettes. I thought I was cool, with it, or whatever you want to call it; sadly, I was mistaking. Throughout my teens and even into my twenties (except when I was pregnant), cigarettes remained a vice that I didn’t want to give up. That is until I was getting sick all the time with chest infections and sore throats.
I literally felt like I was hacking up my lungs on a daily basis – it was time to quit. With lots of prayer and a willingness on my part, I gave them up. I’m not sure how much the years of smoking damaged my lungs and body, but the more time that is put between me and cigs, the better.
Tell us something that you did, tried, or habitually loved in your younger years that you think might have affected your health and beauty. Please share! And be well-be beautiful.
