Vices and People..

Some of the most entertaining and likeable people I know smoke and drink. Interestingly, all of them are men. They belong to different generations and some of them have quite a number of other vices as well -- women, gambling etc.. But they're charming rascals all the same! A lot of my strait-laced friends are quite interesting in their own way. But they lack that dare-devil, happy-go-lucky, crowd-pleasing charm of the former category.

Do entertaining/interesting people have vices because they're very open to new experiences and sometimes, these new experiences turn out to be addictive? Or does having vices generally gives you a certain perspective about human life that you become extremely tolerant and well-loved by other people?

Or maybe, there is this mischievous streak in all of us that we curtail...and when we see people uninhibitedly doing what they please, a small part of us wants to do that too -- not necessarily drinking/smoking but just being wild...you get the picture?

It seems like the cliche, 'rich guys do not get a peaceful sleep while poor folks do'

Peaceful sleep is independent of money. I think the same goes for being likeable and having vices.

Chemical dependence is a sure shot way to misery in the long run. In general, folks who don't smoke nor drink are much liked by their family members...

Many start smoking & drinking to explore what it means. Few continue it due to peer pressure. Few more continue it, 'cos nobody told them to stop it (restraints from partner). A few do not realize it is a vice.

"Drink and be merry" comes to mind.

Are you talking about your "Indian" friends or is this what you have noticed in general too?
