WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER?
Ya know, come to think about it... My health is failing now and I been doing everything I can to be "healthy". I have two hernias killing me, I can hardly walk some days (and other days it's fine), chronic pain all over my body. I'm a mess - so yeah... If I could afford it, I would be very tempted to just enjoy the shit out of life and drop dead in a room full of empty bottles and pizza boxes. Not to mention firing down a THC cookie before bed every night.
I've come to the conclusion that prolonging my life is prolonging the pain and nothing more. I know my friends love me and want me around and so on - but if it came to it and I had the ability - I think I would just go for the enjoyment of it all.
That being said, I would not be like my brother was and fire down a 40 every day while popping industrial pain meds. I'd keep it to 1/2 a 26 a day at most. But... there would be no end to the crap food I'd be eating. With millions in the bank I'd never cook again, I'd order in every day - 3 times a day.
I'm sure the over doing it would only last a week as well. I tire of the feeling of being over the limit after all. So most days it would be a moderate amount of whiskey - but it would be nice whiskey.
The food however would be not healthy at all, but instead things I really enjoy - like pizza and pasta. There would be a burger now and then as well (not fast food, a real burger) - even though it would give me a headache.
I don't really know why I would want to be 85 years old in a care home, suffering every moment of my life just to say I fought the good fight. What the actual hell is the point? Sure if I was 20 and had a long way to go - I'd try to keep healthy for some time. But the longer I live the worse it all gets. I'm literally falling apart.
So yeah, not a binge of booze and pizza till I die in 3 years, but I'd enjoy the hell out of the time I had left even though it would shorten my life a little.
So I'll be getting my monthly lotto tickets still and now and then when the prize is very big - getting a ticket in the middle of the month. I honestly do not expect to ever win - but I'll keep playing just in case.
