@gr36 I agree with the point. I also wish we were more honest about alcohol consumption. But the tone of the piece is devoid of compassion. It's a distateful read, when I'm used to the relative outrage-free discourse here. (And the writer, a former smoker, shouldn't get on his high horse about trashing the environment, unless he mentions the thousands of cigarette butts that he's contributed.)
@jean @gr36 It's a typical Reddit post, unnuanced, black and white reasoning. The subreddit name (Unpopular opinion) says it all. I can add a few more, though, music listening, gossip, organized religion, etc., etc. All are bad in principle, but grease relationships between people in moderation. Guilty pleasures they are called, I believe.
