Ithink, it all has to do with how much do people use.
If it becomes misuse in that is sitting the problem.
We need to master our desires at all levels, that we don't be slaves
of any thing we eat or do or even say.
Every unit in your body is saying to you what is good for you and
what not.We all are individuals with specialities.
Don't forget the time 1885 and later people misused alcohol,
especially strong destillated, and that demaged a lot in the body as
well as outside the body.
If you drink a good glas of red wine and eat a piece of hare if you
like, is only healthy and don't demage you at all.
Think well , milarepa eated meat too.
We are not angels or yogi, which can live from the air.
And what is in the air on earth????? Much more things bader than
smoking,drinking or eating meat.
We need to resist ALL.
If you go from here to Tibet, you will have troubles for the 5000m
high-air for you have not learned the special lung gom breathing
So everywhere and in every country you need to specialize the whole
