We all have our vices. It’s not easy for me to admit some of mine. As a dentist, I give a lot of advice about dental health. One piece of that advice that I consistently betray is to not use chewing tobacco. I don’t need to get into all the bull crap about what it does to your teeth. It’s bad, but I can’t stop.
It feels so go good to squeeze the tobacco juice into my gums. It’s a sweet trip into relaxation city. I wish I could stop, but it’s just too hard. Whenever I watch my Phillies, and see the remarkably handsome Chase Utley packing a sweet a lip, I just crave the taste of what he’s tasting.
I don’t recommend this to any of my patients, but damn it just feels right and it eats away at me and my gums. My buddy Jake is a Cardiologist, and he has the same cognitive dissonance when it comes to his habitual ‘Slim Jim’ pounding ( I was like ‘Bro don’t mess with Sasquatch’ LOL). Do you have vices? That’s okay, I understand.
