the things you mostly end up regretting are the ones you didn't do or didn't do enough of

I figure it this way... I smoked cigarettes for 26 years (thank God I finally quit!) and drank heavily for a few years along with doing drugs (again thank God I quit) on and off for most of my adult life...

The pipe is way more enjoyable and satisfying than any of those. Not to mention way better for my health compared to any of the things I used to do.

I think it’s all relative to the individual I smoke I enjoy smoking it’s peaceful and relaxing. Some people hike or climb some like the high paced thrills of skydiving or BASE jumping it’s just about what makes you happy. I’m not hurting anyone else so I really never give it a second thought

I spend time with people who are dying and in hospice, etc. The regrets people have are typically not the things they have done but the things left undone.

That's sad to hear.

I cannot imagine trying to live a life filled with worry about being in perfect health. Immortality is not an option.

At the risk of launching into a sermon, there is a cultural inclination to worship at the temple of the body.
