Much to my mother’s chagrin (sorry, mom!), I do occasionally smoke tobacco out of a hookah as a way to relax and chat with friends. Though not quite as unhealthy as cigarettes, it can cause lung cancer. As such, I try to do it in moderation. I figure people don’t stop drinking because they might destroy their livers, so I should enjoy a bit of relaxation as long as it doesn’t start happening every week or what-not.
In any case, this is possibly the greatest way to work on my fourth novel. Warm weather. Beach. Hookah. I got 1500 words in two hours. Excellent.
