The best of healthy living
My cousin Albert was a dedicated worker; in short, he is a workaholic type of man. His line of job is quite good and perfectly suited to his knowledge as a talented cook. And because he is working in a busy and fast paced environment, he became a regular customer of “social vices” every time he’s off from work. To ease or to relax his tired body from a day of grueling task, he indulges to smoking cigarette and drinking liquor until he gets drunk. His kind of lifestyle was repeated all year round. He is not concerned at all about the way he run his life, what he think is that, he is enjoying his life with his vices.
After so many years of addiction to vices, his body started to show signs of symptom like diseases. His body has had enough, and in June of this year, he succumbs to kidney malfunction and his respiratory tract was likewise affected in which a tube like device was inserted in his throat for him to breathe properly. My cousin was lucky enough to survive after months of hospital confinement. Thus, he has completely recovered and is now back in his usual self sans the vices that almost killed him in the process.
The message of the story is clear: vices can kill. When someone consumes too much cigarette and drink liquor to the max, expect no other place to go but hospital, or worse, instant death. Our health depends on what we do in our lives. As the Italian film may suggest, “Life is Beautiful.” The early you reject or discard vices the better. Or, better still, do not try to use vices and stay away from it for good. Having a healthy lifestyle is a moral responsibility for it set an example to others. So, if you’re into vices leave it now, change for the better and have a healthy living.
