I dont know exactly, but partly its just because i dont drink, smoke, use drugs or eat meat,
because i dont feel they make any good to my body and mental activity. On the other
hand, i've always thought its just my inability and my own narrowness. I remember
Blavatsky saying even small amount of drinking affects to higher principles of our body for
seven days. Not to mention, Masters couldnt meet westerns because of their drinking and
meat eating habits. But you're right, smoking they didnt care that much, but chemically,
how does it differ from using any other drugs or addictive stuff?
