    Never will I ever damage my body in any way.

    Isn't my cup of tea that's

    for sure. Heavy drinking, drugs, over eating, not eating enough, and hacking on ones self, is just insane. I went to high school with kids that did that junk, sometimes I just wanted to grab them and shake the hell out them and scream; WAKE UP!
